something different

My husband, another person from our tour group, and I were wandering around Bath, looking for something to eat that wasn't fish and chips or a Cornish pasty. We walked a very short way out of the busiest part of town and stumbled upon this place. It is not fancy inside, but that's good because that... read more

I'm giving this place 5 stars largely because the barman Peter was an absolute legend We held a mates 30th there and they catered for us really well. Great venue and top service

In fairness it wasn't our choice to eat in this place off a strange raised void surrounded by the backs of various buildings behind Upper Borough Walls. There was nothing to commend it; food, service, ambience or cost. For the time being at least this is the most mediocre experience I've had of eating out in Bath.

I seem to have enjoyed Chicken Caesar Salads in restaurants all over the world so tend to use this dish as a benchmark. Admittedly, this was a very busy Saturday lunchtime, when the the kitchen staff were hard pressed, but I regret that this was one of the worst Caesar Salads I have ever eaten. Would the restaurant consider renaming... More

Best ribs I have ever eaten. Shame about the appalling, slow service by complete amateurs. Even with no-one in the place they STILL take forever. If you have time to spare then OK. Otherwise avoid.

We ordered what I have to say is one of the most flavoursome coffee iv tasted in a while. I had a... More

We have known Bonghy Bo's a while but we never fail to enjoy it. Their speciality noodles are great especially at £5 along with Ribs and other Asian food Very good Wine at £4.30 for a 175 is also a steal. Don't go for a large choice of food but what Katherine offers is lovely as is the service. Inside... More

Spending the day in Bath, we saw Bonghy - Bo and thought it looked nice so gave it a try for lunch. Very friendly, helpful staff, lovely layout and good food. The only thing that ruined it was the owner? constantly haranguing the staff in full view and hearing of everyone for what seemed like very minor indiscretions. Felt tempted... More

After asking many people on the streets of Bath for "a nice lunch and a glass of wine" someone finally pointed us in the direction of Bonghy-Bo. Saved! A beautiful patio and indoor seating, friendly staff and a great menu. We had 2 kids in our party and the owner was nothing but hospitable, offering to be flexible with meal... More

Eat lunch here about once a month - always enjoy it. The food doesn't change much (over twenty years) but always very good.
