The Bath Priory restaurant in Bath has held a Michelin star since October 2012. Found within the Bath Priory Hotel, a Georgian mansion of honey-coloured stone, it’s a great place when you want sophisticated food in an elegant setting. Executive Chef Sam Moody, creates stellar dishes with a strong emphasis on kitchen garden ingredients with an inventive use of traditional herbs and flowers. Where possible, all meat is locally sourced and the menu sticks closely to what’s in season. "

Sam Moody never fails to impress, his food is always sublime. The service is run impeccably which makes you feel special and the staff know every detail of the menu. Ask for a window view so while you are eating the fantastic food you can also look at the beautiful gardens.

We have always enjoyed the Bath Priory. Any fears that changes in the relationship with Michael Caines might upset standards were answered when we went to a Wine Dinner the other night. The meal was fixed, with arrangements for people who did not like the menu, and beautifully prepared. I so respect a house that can serve numerous dinners or... More

Went for the midweek lunch at The Bath Priory. Firstly, a cocktail in the Drawing Room with canopies followed by a 3 course lunch in the restaurant. The food was beautifully presented, delicious in taste and excellently served.

It's easy to see why this restaurant has merited a Michelin Star. The food and the service are impeccable. Don't expect big portions, but the food is rich and of a very high quality, so you shouldn't go away too hungry. Thoroughly recommend it.

As mentioned by a previous reviewer, the car park is inadequate and as this restaurant is not close to the centre of Bath driving there is necessary or catching a bus. As a group of ladies, we were eating at lunchtime in The Pantry, which is not at all attractive. We chose the set menu. There is nothing worse than... More

We had been looking forward to our lunch at the Bath Priory for some time and we were not disappointed. Each course, from the canapés with drinks at the start, to the beautifully risen soufflé at the end was delicious. Thank you, Sam and the team for providing us with such a memorable dining experience. We will be back!
