This was sadly nothing like one would expect from a French patisserie. The pastry on the very expensive raspberry tart was thick and stale tasting. It was reminiscent of the pastry on cheap jam tarts bought from the supermarket. We will never be repeating this experience again! I have eaten cakes at the Bournemouth branch in the past and they...

Could not fault this afternoon tea,very good quality food, and tea! They were helpful in changing sandwiches to our taste, and refilling tea pots with hot water when asked. I eat afternoon tea a lot and this compared really well.excellent value.will definitely go again. Delicious warm moist scones!

After living in France for over 10 years I have to say French cakes are pretty poor compared to the cakes you find in a British bakers, however they do make a nice croissant. Therefore now being a resident of Bath I went here to buy one. It was rock hard, like it had been there for at least a... More

We visited hear on 28 November for a lunchtime snack. The café was busy and welcomingly warm on a bitterly cold day. We were warmly greeted and shown to a table. There is an extensive offering of tempting light meals and delicious looking cakes and fancies. We weren’t really hungry, just taking the opportunity for a drink and a warm... More

Drool over (from outside!) the beautiful cakes and gateaux in this delightful café. Order the Eggs Benedict for breakfast or lunch. Enjoy the delicious coffee. The only slight downside is that it is a little crowded but just goes to show what a good deal you get here

I was a fan of Patisserie Valerie when I lived in London. The Bath one kind of lacks atmosphere a little in comparison, but it's still a nice place to stop for tea and a fruit tart.

My husband and I had the afternoon tea as a special little treat. The staff were great but I would say the food isn't what I thought it would be. The sandwiches were fine, however, some of the cakes aren't that great, the eclairs had the minimal amount of cream in them, so much so you couldn't even taste it,... More
