Superb meal, reasonable value

The menu sounded quite basic, however the food was incredibly tasty and well presented. I believe the chef is ex Michelin star, and the food reflects this, albeit not overly fussy.

Superb quality cooking, balanced clean flavours, extraordinary service, good wine. Pretty reasonable price as well given the quality of the cooking - we'll be back

As a couple who enjoy going to eat good food we found this restaurant excellent. The food was experimental rather than the same old, and worked really well with delicious flavours. The waiter, Ross was brilliant and helped us on our first gin experience. We found the staff, food and gin all amazing. Definitely recommend :)

Went for dinner on. Friday night. The food was first class. The restaurant is unstuffy and friendly. Service was good and overall in terms of food etc it was excellent. The only problem was that it was virtually empty. At 9-00 on a Friday night there were only 2-3 tables occupied. It's a shame bevy see on our other night... More

I've heard a lot of good things about the cooking here and it would appear I've been missing out. However before we discuss the food I should warm you that the decor of the restaurant is simply disgusting. An awful mix of candy pink walls, brown hopsack curtains, and bare un-dressed tables. If I were to rate the style and... More

This was lunch with a friend, both of us living in the area. I had eaten there before and found both the food and the ambience delightful. Every dish was good, flavoursome and plentiful. My only reason for hesitating about the number of star is because the restaurant was strangely empty, but this could have been because, for the Christmas... More

We had dinner here on a Friday night. Despite not being terribly busy there was a nice ambience with a buzz. We loved the decor which is modern, fun and arty. The staff were really friendly and nice, and we had a very warm welcome. The food was very tasty, nicely presented in sensible portion sizes. The desserts were particularly... More

My partner has visited this restaurant twice before and had sung its praises so I was really looking forward to this meal but overall I was left disappointed. Things began well with a lovely cocktail in the very swanky bar but then we were left holding our menus for far too long, when we were taken to our table we... More

Being locals we'd heard so much about this place so I suppose expectations were fairly high. We decided to have a drink in the bar first but we were told to sit down at a nearby table and someone would come and take our drinks order but 15 minutes later no one had come and other people were arriving and...

We were staying in Bath and wanted to eat somewhere reasonably close to our hotel, so looked at reviews on Trip Advisor for a recommendation. What an amazing stroke of luck to find Allium. It was the best and most exciting meal we have had in a restaurant for a very long time and fantastically good value. The location in... More
