Allium Brasserie opened in 2012 and serves a variety of dishes from light lunches to a la carte dinner from 12 noon until 9pm (10pm on Friday and Saturdays). A superb range of dishes, using the freshest, seasonal ingredients, are created by head chef Chris Staines and his team. Terrace dining can be enjoyed when the weather is good, where you can also enjoy coffees and afternoon teas - also served in the Allium Lounge where you are surrounded by original artworks in an ever-changing exhibition. One the most exciting restaurants in Bath.

Diverse and quirky menu with a distinct Asian flair. My pork was very good, but my wife did not enjoy her pasta as much. Seemed more popular for drinks at the tables outside than for the food. Very good service.

Started with some good cocktails (clover club was nice) but thought the menu lacked a bit of imagination. Saying that though the pork loin dish was particularly good I have to say but I thought the rest of the menu choices could do with a bit of a make over. The restaurant interior was funky and had a nice outside... More

We reserved the more private back area of the restaurant for an after wedding meal for 12 (they also have a private dining room in their basement which first brought them to our attention). Exceptional food and drink. Attentive and unhurried service. They have the Queen's delicious British champagne which we were pleased to find. Quirky rear bar has knowledgeable... More

We went here the first time for Valentines Day 2014 and loved it so much we took Mum there for her birthday later that month. Both times we were blown away by the creativity of the dishes and unusual, interesting mixes of flavours. We went back in April 2015 and, though it was still fantastic, weren't quite so awe-struck by... More

This is more a 3.5 than a three star. Service was good, the staff were friendly and our food arrived quickly. Some of the dishes were very good but some were disappointing. Our boys felt their burgers were very over cooked as was the duck. The rest of the mains and starters were good. Desserts were again mixed. The decor... More

A very modern restaurant located inside the Abbey Hotel. Excellent food with very pleasant service. Good value for money, especially the early-bird menu. A comfortable bar for pre or after dinner drinks. Must visit the poshest ladies powder room ever, and even the gent's bathroom was unique.

The Allium is located centrally in Bath next to the Abbey. The restaurant is relatively informal with friendly staff and good service. The wine list offers good variety. The food is modern British with some excellent twists. I have enjoyed this restaurant twice and the lamb on my first visit was excellent. This is a very good restaurant and for... More

Wonderful 'woodland' setup for tea, with potted plants and trees over a (synthetic) lawn creates the backdrop for a lovely cream tea.

We made a quick stop at Allium for tea while waiting for our coach tour bus which picks and drops off at Parade right in front of the restaurant. Service was quick and attentive and the tea was quite tasty, I especially liked the scones although I though the clotted cream too bitter. I would definately recommend for those wanting... More
