The Allium Restaurant in Bath is on the ground floor of the Abbey Hotel, an independently-owned location which sets high standards. So we were a little disconcerted to find a wedding disco taking place right next to the restaurant when we arrived. Now I like Gloria Gaynor as much as the next man but not when I’m eating. However, the... More

We dined here on a recent trip to Bath and we arrived just in time to sample the early bird menu. We weren't disappointed, the standard of the cooking here is excellent, I opted for the goats cheese starter followed by the lamb, both we're excellent dishes, seasoned to perfection. My husband chose the watercress velouté and the pork, both... More

I don't think im over exaggerating either. Pack your bags and head to bath just for this restaurant (and the porter at milson street too -- very delicious). Recommend the Quail with truffles and also the angus steak apparently was amazing. Flavours will blow you away.

Chris just quietly gets on with what he does, and whilst we all know he is creating amazing food it is wonderful to see our guests putting it into words on line. Thank you again... More

We started with drinks in the bar - I wasn't looking forward to that bit too much being pregnant but the friendly bartender made delicious and exciting looking non-alcoholic drinks - a great start to the evening. In the restaurant the same attentive service continued in a warm and relaxed atmosphere. The food was delicious - original dishes excellently presented,... More

Celebratory milestone birthday lunch saw us arrive @ the Allium - based on its feedback.

The food was absolutely divine, creative and well presented and the dining room was perfect for a romantic meal. Unfortunately, service left much to be desired, which is why I'm only giving it 3 stars. The starter came very quickly but from then on it unfortunately went downhill. The staff blanked us throughout the rest of the meal. We couldn't... More

Booked a table here at the last hour, as we were unable to get a table at another local eateries. So glad we did! The service was excellent (thank you Rob and staff) and the food was totally first class. We would never normally order 3 courses (my husband and I chose different options for each course), let alone enjoy... More

We met up with friends at Allium and from the moment we entered, everything went well. The fixed price menu had an excellent range to choose from, the food was well presented and delicious and the service was very good - attentive without being intrusive. We will certainly visit again.

My sister and I took mum on Sunday for a birthday lunch. We were offered two menus (a la carte, and a Sunday lunch menu) which you were able to switch between for different courses.

Great food was marred by very slow service and a dining room totally lacking in ambience. Service was friendly but had to wait too long to give orders, wait for starters, wait for mains. Expensive for the overall experience. Disappointing given the very good reviews.
