Lunch at MGJ was brilliant and I loved being able to chat to Gordon while he painstakingly prepared each dish. We had the 5 course lunch with wine flight which I would recommend as it gives you the opportunity to try some very unusual wines. Each course was a work of art but more importantly each one tasted wonderful. The waiting staff are charming and the atmosphere genuinely unstuffy for a place serving such excellent food. Gordon is a star in the making - and he doesn't even swear in the kitchen! Catch him while you can - and Gordon please don't change!

On a recent trip to Bath I decided to try the much lauded MGJ. It was worth the visit.
I was a Solo diner on a midweek lunch time and I had one of the most memorable dining experiences I've had in a long while. Food highlights , for me , were the Turbot with haggis and the beautiful dessert which included a "to die for" chocolate cream and a take on an Indian styled frozen yoghurt ( amongst other elements)
The service was a joy with my Flight of Wine carefully and elegantly described at each course by the most eloquent front of house person. Although this place is a foodie type haven there are little quirks which actually made it for me....the kitchen is very open to the floor and at one stage I was conversing ,from my table,with the chef about the cooking. I imagine if I were in a top London eaterie I would be " financially fleeced" for having the ChefsTable! The floor staff wore jeans,the decor was eclectic and was that actually Kings of Leon I listened to through course 4?? The star of the show undoubtedly though was what was on the plate. I say fair play to Mr Gordon Jones.

I reviewed Menu Gordon Jones last April and gave it five stars (like most people), well, I was lucky enough to be taken there again for my birthday and it was better, so what do award it now? Mr Jones is a truly talented chef; having no menu and cooking whatever sounds good that day is very brave, but it works. His creativity and skill are amazing, every course worked superbly and together they formed a meal that I cannot criticise in way - tastes, quantities, presentation, service, all perfect . I love the informality and conviviality, getting a table here is a real privilege - and that is not something I would say about any other restaurant I have visited.

Went with 3 friends for the taster menu and wine flight. We booked 5 months ago and have been looking forward to it ever since. We were not disappointed - it was worth the wait.
The restaurant is intimate, the staff are knowledgeable and the food was fantastic.
We had a great view of the open kitchen watching the chefs create the magic dishes.
Can't remember all of the courses but included eel, brill, venison and a pudding that tasted of parma violets!
If i could rate this higher then i would - possibly the best meal I've ever had.

Could not fault the food and the excellent value. A great experience and birthday treat for me! The only slight glitch was a very long delay before the dessert course but I'd rather have waited than eaten some thing less than perfect, which, indeed, it was. I hope to return if we can get a booking!
