A weekend in Bath is always a real treat, with an array of good restaurants to choose from - as we saw that the Allium Brasserie had some excellent reviews on here, we thought we'd give it a go. It was a positive experience from start to finish...
Even though we were booking fairly last-minute (Thursday night for the meal on the Saturday night), we had no trouble booking a table for two online via the Abbey hotel website. We were greeted promptly at the door by the manager who showed us to the trendy bar where they provided table service, allowing us adequate time to browse and choose from the extensive menus.
The bar menu has a fantastic choice of drinks - we enjoyed the gin menu with '7 gins & 7 tonics', and picked a bottle of Red to enjoy with dinner. Once our food had been ordered and prepared, we were taken through to our candle-lit table in the restaurant, where our wine had been waiting for us! Complementary bread with oils to start and we shared the Mandarin segments - a real treat for your tastebuds! We recommend the Rib-eye steak and the sea bream as main courses - both cooked to perfection, well presented and large portion sizes.
As if the food and drink wasn't impressive enough, we were really impressed with the attentive and well-trained staff who were all friendly and professional in their approach to all customers.
A great experience overall - we will be recommending and returning!

Thank you for your review. I remember you well and am really thrilled you enjoyed your meal with us, even more delighted to hear you will be back and will recommend us.
It is not always easy to stand out from the crowd especially in a place like Bath with so many eateries to choose from. But our core values or quality and attention to detail, relaxed atmosphere and passionate staff I think give us an edge. Im really delighted you seem to feel the same way,
Looking forward to seeing you again.
