“Warm welcome, lovely food, fun atmosphere”
Reviewed November 18, 2013

We visited here on our fisrt evening in Bath as it was the closest place to the apartment we had rented - even though we hadn't seen it listed on Trip Advisor but we lucked out big time!
We dropped in and booked a table early evening on our way back to the apartment after an afternoon in the Spa, we were warned about the live music so chose to sit in the library section which was slightly away from the main area and quiet enough that we could comfortably talk as only 3 women on a weekend away can :)
The service was very good and very friendly.
Our starters, a beetroot tart, smoked ricotta panacotta and a chicken liver and pork pate were all fabulous - I tasted all three.
One of our party is vegetarian and whlist there wasn't much choice of main she raved about the butternut squash/ pastry dish - which was different and she said very tasty. The burger was good quality and very passable.
Wine was reasonably priced and we had a really good evening for £30 pp including 10% tip.
Highly recommend the Green Park Brasserie - and there's an interesting market to mooch around if you visit on a weekend during the day.

“A real lovely treat. Needs a higher placing!”
Reviewed November 17, 2013 via mobile

Having a horrendous journey into Bath, we missed our original booking at Sotto Sotto who had no room to accommodate us later, so looking through other restaurants, we settled on Green Park for an 8pm booking via toptable.

On realising we were hungrier than we thought, we called ahead to bring forward our booking. This was totally fine, they explained they were busy, but this wouldn't be a problem.

We arrived and it was half empty at that point, but this was just gone 7.

We were greeted by lovely young and friendly staff that then introduced us to our waitress Jess and we were seated and handed menus. We explained that we wanted to take our time, so just wanted to order starters for now while we decided on ourmain dishes. This was fine and we were told we could keep the table.

We ordered the scallops and beetroot tart for starters and both were amazing. Really. Tasty, clean, crisp, fresh and really good size portions. Some places charge a fortune and then give you not much, the sizes here were perfect. Not disappointed at all as I love scallops and like to think I'm a connoisseur (not really!) but these were some of the best I've had and the lemon and dill croquettes were amazing too.

Mains we ordered beef and ale pie and the chicken, with dauphinois potatoes, and cabbage for sides along with another bottle of wine! The pie was incredible. Spicy, tasty and the beef was tender and beautiful. The chicken was also perfect. The cassoulet that came with it was incredibly tasty. All prices were totally reasonable too. Two bottles of wine, two starters, two mains, 1 shared dessert and 1 cocktail was just under 100 quid. Totally reasonable.

This is definitely some of the best food I have come across,no lie. So much so I asked Jess our waitress to tell the chef, I never do that, but I had such a fabulous meal and time, I wanted to pass only thanks.

Genuinely loved our visit here, Jess was incredible. Attentive, polite, smily, fun and helped with menu choices. A true gem.
All staff we met were cut from the same cloth, all a delight to deal with and incredibly polite.

The converted station is agreat idea, and is really lovely setting. Unusual and fun.

I hope to see this rising up in the charts on trip advisor, as it needs to be discovered by the masses. It was incredibly busy by the time we left, everyone seemed to be loving it. The live music was great too, a lovely addition and rare to have nowadays, and it was really enjoyable.

Loved it. Really did and will recommend to friends who visit and we will definitely be back and definitely be booking here for our next visit.

Thanks Jess and team, you were all lovely.

“Perfect”
Reviewed November 17, 2013 via mobile

This restaurant was booked in the car en route to Bath after being stuck in the worst traffic and missing our first booking at an alternative restaurant. And what a good decision we made. It's at the back end of town however it's a total gem. Set in an old railway station the decor is unassuming however the restaurant comes to life with these three points. 1. The Service: impeccable from start to finish. Jess our waitress was attentive without being overly intrusive, she knew the menu and was able to advise in detail about the ingredients and taste expectations. This is a young lady who I'm sure will go far in hospitality. 2. The food: Beautiful...I had the Chicken Cassoulet. Flavoursome and I enjoyed every mouthful. Partner had the Beef pie which looked lovely and the Swede and squash mash is to die for. 3: the price...we had 3 starters, 2 mains with 3 side dishes, a dessert shared plus 2 bottles of very good white wine, a glass of prosseco each and a cocktail...all just over £110 pounds...bargain. My only comment on the negative side is that the outside of the building doesn't do the inside justice. Listening to the jazz band whilst whiling away the night topped it off just perfectly. We will be going again, without a doubt.

“Superb meal”
Reviewed November 17, 2013

Great location in an old railway station. The food was excellent and great value for money. The menu has some interesting variations on classic dishes. We had the pan fried scallops and pancetta - really delicious. The service is very good and the cost is very reasonable. The added touch of a jazz trio (not too loud) made it a great evening. Worth a visit.

“Great evening, good food, good company and music too”
Reviewed November 4, 2013

What a great way to use an old ex railway station! The food was well presented and beautifully cooked, lovely choice of menu and served by friendly staff. The super atmosphere was provided by happy customers and two guitarists with an excellent violinist (Mike Evans?). They ran through an interesting repertoire of jazz to Beatles (all played at a nice gentle volume that allowed conversation to continue). We will be back............
