We had lunch here on a Saturday afternoon. The cheesemonger was incredibly helpful and knowledgeable and helped us choose some lovely cheeses for our platter and our waitress was helpful. We thoroughly enjoyed the food. However the meal was spoilt for us by the tension between some of the front of house staff. I feel it is very unprofessional to... More

We enjoyed lunch here with friends, but while the food was fine (good quality, fresh, good value for money) the service, as others have said, lacks flair. For example when I asked for the bill it did not arrive, and I had to go to the counter to get a bill and pay. I suppose when the ratings of a... More

We grabbed a takeaway coffee and a cookie this morning. Staff were really helpful and informed us of a special offer with the coffee. Coffee was really good and we would definitely recommend.

I arrived into Bath on an early train to make the most of the day, planning to start with breakfast and was surprised to find most places were still closed (it was almost 9am by then). I remembered this café from stopping for lunch during a previous visit to Bath and had enjoyed the food then, so walked round and... More

Some strange TA feedback on customer service! Popped in for a light lunch and very impressed with the ambiance of the cafe. Relaxing, clean and very well presented. We remember a time when the cafe had a little more of a rustic cafe feel about it but a makeover has resulted in a very pleasing interior, well separated tables and... More

This is a lovely little find in terms of a quiet and relaxed place with a great product. The cheeses are beautiful, and they have a wide range of sandwiches and soft drinks which are all equally delicious. The cheesemongers are highly skilled and knowledgeable also. HOWEVER. The waiting staff are appalling (bar one waitress). First time I came here,... More

I am a fan of the Fine Cheese Co and the products it sells, however, its cafe (on this occaision) did not live up to this. All we ordered was tea to drink, however, the service was terrible. Disappointed.

A gem of a restaurant, just off the beaten tourist track in Bath. The restaurant manager was extremely welcoming and friendly. The menu was relatively small but still had plenty of choice, sandwiches, hot food, cakes and plenty of beverages. I had a lovely cappuccino served in a really pretty cup and a beautifully prepared Welsh Rarebit with green salad,... More
