We have returned to Gascoyne Place several times but may not go back again. We like the close proximity to the Theatre Royal and the food is well presented and reliable although the menu for the fixed price menu lunch on that day was not very exciting. Plus points were: the food was good but it was a shame we... More

We weren't a Christmas party but celebrating my wife's birthday. We had a private room which felt like a company boardroom. Service was really good and the three courses beautifully presented and very tasty. Expectations exceeded.

I went with my wife and young daughter for lunch at Gascoyne Place. This is a very nice gastropub serving good food. It was quite busy. I liked the decor. It was modern yet cosy and charming. As with most eating places in Bath, you need to make a reservation - otherwise, you have to wait. For starters we ordered... More

We had an excellent meal at Gascoyne Place, the staff were very polite, helpful. Food was excellent. Would definitely visit again when in Bath. It is very close to the Theatre and the Royal Mineral Hospital, and also the Bus Stops

This is a little gem in the middle of Bath. Such a great find and lovely service. The food on the set menu was outstanding and the price was extremely reasonable. I would recommend Gascoyne place for large and small groups. If I lived in bath this would be my local. ;-)

Webs for dinner on Saturday evening, it was fairly busy but the service was friendly. Nice atmosphere with candles in tea cups. The food was well presented but average.

We had a lovely Sunday Roast in this quirky restaurant/pub. The second you walk in you can smell the delights of the kitchen. The decor is cosy but modern and there is a noticeable attention to detail. There is a great selection of different drinks and good choice of classic pub dishes. The staff were lovely and the service was... More

Arrived in Bath with friends a little later than expected. We managed to secure a table and ordered from the à la carte menu. Freshly battery fish and chips were lovely. Chicken breast with scrumptious mash and veg simply delicious. Waiter was lovely very helpful wine reasonably priced, the atmosphere was very relaxing would recommend

Where do I begin? We pre-booked a party of 9, which became 7. Advance notice was given of the reduction in numbers. We all chose from a set menu in advance. Starters were nice enough, if a little meagre, but then it all fell apart. Every single one of the main courses was faulty in some way. Fish was served... More
