Had dinner here a couple of Saturday nights ago. Hadn't booked but managed to get a table for 2 at 8.30 pm. As it was a very warm evening we sat outside- I think this is probably the best seat in Bath, looking either up towards Royal Crescent or down to The Circus. The food was very good - we... More

The Circus has been around for some time in Bath and every time I've eaten there the food has always been excellent quality and the service exemplary. The basement is a nice place to be and the overall feeling is of a little gem.

The Circus sits between two of Bath's iconic locations - the Royal Crescent and the Royal Circus - and the restaurant totally lives up to the splendour of its location. We are Bath residents and rate it one of our favourite places to eat; we have never had a disappointing meal - the owner/head-chef is a gem and the table... More

This is one of those finds that makes you happy. Walking along from the Royal Crescent you pass this little restaurant. Don't pass it by. I ate here twice and consider the meals amongst the best I have eaten. There is also an excellent wine list. The prices are proper restaurant level but as a treat or a special occasion... More

The food is made to perfection , generous portions and the team is genuinely friendly. There is a respectable wine list , all reasonably priced. Reservation is a must . The... More

Tucked away in the neighborhood of Baths well-known Circus neighborhood is this small but charming and warm restaurant. Our waitress was terrific, the beer was cold, the wine very good and our meals of lamb, sea bass and steak were all delicious! Because we were late getting back from a visit to Stonehenge we missed our coveted reservations for SotoSoto... More

We stumbled upon The Circus on our first trip to Bath and it was easily the highlight of our visit. We were really impressed with the menu, the atmosphere and the service throughout the meal. I enjoyed a perfect plate of mussels with the best chips ever (seriously, I keep thinking of them) while my partner had some great looking... More

This place was great! I was lucky to be a table forone and get a table without booking ahead, I saw many others get turned away for attempting the same. The staff was warm and friendly and the phone was prepared with obvious care. Delicious! I would happily go again. However, the sign in front says that this is rated... More

No, it doesn't say we are number 4 in the UK, it says that we were voted number 4 in The Times newspaper 20 secret places that Foodies love! Heston can sleep safe in his bed! Having said that most people (and all the major food guides) do believe we are superior to Sotto Sotto! Thank you for your review.... More
