Drove to bath (hour and a half) especially to eat at allium for a joint birthday meal, it was definitely worth it. Out of 6 of us, 3 were coeliac and therefore gluten free and allium did very well to accommodate us and adapt the things we wanted (within reason) from the menu. Everyone was blown away by the food,... More

Booked this as a birthday treat for my wife, and the food and wine were very good, if slightly over-reliant on salt for flavouring the former. We had an enjoyable meal,but the staff did break what for us is the one cardinal rule: always organize the aperitifs quickly - customers with drinks in their hands are happy customers! I am... More

We had a very large business lunch there. Everyone was served quite promptly and the food was well-presented and came out in a timely fashion.

We walked in without a reservation on a Saturday evening and were pleasantly surprised. Picked out of the guide book because of the description of "Modern European Cuisine" we found that the Chef, Chris Stains, had been names Bath's 2013 Chef of the year. Our Irish waiter, Ross, on his first day on the job, steered us toward the triple... More

My friends and I took advantage of the early evening deal and we were extremely pleased with the quality food that we ate. The chef certainly knows what he's doing. My daughter had food from the children's menu which wasn't so great, I wish I'd ordered for her from the main menu as she would have enjoyed it more. Our... More

Taking advantage of the weather and the location I've sat outside the Allium twice in the last week for drinks in the evening. Drinks are great - fab gin cocktails. But the service is not of the same league - please sort it out. Get waiters that can catch your eye - and don't look at you blankly when you... More

I ate here one evening whilst staying at The Abbey Hotel, after reading many good reviews (including one by Jay Rayner) and figured it must be worth a try. The restaurant is nicely furnished, with some pleasant outdoor seating and an outdoor bar (although I was a little cold with the door open.) Staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The... More

Quite good! Stayed at the Abbey Hotel and went there for a breakfast and lunch. Breakfast was economic for abbey hotel guests-10 for each person. Food was also tasty. And lunch was also delicious-generally food was delicious my friends were satisfied with them but my tortellini was a bit salty (still delicious). Lunch service was well executed by one lady....
