My partner and I spent a wonderful evening on Monday at this wonderful restaurant. It was our first visit but it most certainly will not be our last. From the very start to the very end of the evening we were so well looked after by all the staff. Brilliantly mixed drinks - my whisky sour was sensational - superb... More

This venue offers so much - great care has been taken to provide a venue of style and elegance while providing delicious food. Afternoon tea while shopping or add champagne for a birthday treat. A place to meet friends for cocktails or a drink and a chat. We had lunch on the terrace one warm Saturday enjoying a cocktail while... More

I first encountered chris Staines at Foliage in Mandarin Oriental in london. He's a fine chef, modern cuisine, highly literate, able to balance subtle flavours with depth and clarity. His plating is complex, with ample use of aromatic spices and seasonings. The value for this level of cooking at Allium is strong, although I wish the menu changed more often.... More

Brilliant food, brilliant service and brilliant company. Couldn't have asked for more! Scotch egg perfect to whet the appetite. Followed by summer ministrone - beautiful fresh vegetables and lovely ham hock pasta. Partner's steak was fantastic and my pork belly was sublime - amazingly crackling. Dessert wonderful - summery strawberries and vanilla panna cotta - innovative presentation and perfect size.... More

We didn't eat here except for afternoon tea, but we visited several times in one weekend following a similarly positive experience earlier in the year. Cocktails were great, try one of the dessert cocktails. Staff are absolutely lovely particularly the waiter with the Irish accent, sorry I don't know your name. Once you have finished your drinks there's no pressure... More

I won't really get into too much detail on this one... This is just yet-another-tourist-joint serving faux fine dining in bath. Service was efficient but uninterested. The food quality is really below par for this price point. The whole experience felt rushed. As a brasserie, it would have been OK - but which brasserie charges 22 pounds for a very... More

Dear Lacrossian Thank you for your post following your recent visit to Allium. I am sorry to read that the experience was not for you on many levels, your comments do sit somewhat at odds with other recent reviews with regards to food, but enjoyment of food is a very personal experience and it would seem our menu is not...

Our experience at the Allium was spot on to the review that Jay Rayner had previously left for this restaurant. Upon first walking in to the restaurant, the ambience and decor had us beginning to question whether we had made the right choice of restaurant for our special occasion. However, those thoughts were quickly banished. The one waitress did a... More

We had a lovely afternoon tea for my sister's 50th birthday. Food was lovely, speciality teas were absolutely wonderful! Staff were friendly and lovely. We had tea in the hotel lounge which was comfortable and not too noisy. Excellent experience. Would definitely recommend.
