Description: Allium Brasserie opened in 2012 and serves a variety of dishes from light lunches to a la carte dinner from 12 noon until 9pm (10pm on Friday and Saturdays). A superb range of dishes, using the freshest, seasonal ingredients, are created by head chef Chris Staines and his team. Terrace dining can be enjoyed when the weather is good, where you can also enjoy coffees and afternoon teas - also served in the Allium Lounge where you are surrounded by original artworks in an ever-changing exhibition. One the most exciting restaurants in Bath.

The title really says it all!! I have never tasted food quite like it. It was mouth watering a real taste sensation. The restaurant has been beautifully refurbished and the staff are attentive. We have now visited twice and will be back!

“Fantastic service, great meal”
Reviewed September 16, 2012

We had an early evening booking and the staff were exceptional from the start. We had a great table by the window and they were quite happy for us to stay and enjoy some post dinner drinks after the meal. We arrived just before the set course option was finishing and although we werent intending to use it, the maitre d ensured we were aware we still had the option. The food was good (especially the beet root and goats cheese salad) and the wine great.

“What a find”
Reviewed September 14, 2012

Allium has been open for only three months now and it's not hard to see why it has become so popular in such a short space of time. This restaurant has to be the closest thing to a Michelen Star establishment in Bath, great food, service and wines. Every single mouthful is an experience, how on earth they manage to make even the humble lettuce taste so good is a mystery to me. Daniel our waiter and others were very attentive without binging in your face. If your a lover of fine food then I defy you not to like eating here. And the best thing is they are consistent, each time we've been the standard is always high, so as said give it a try.

“Amazing, a real gem”
Reviewed September 13, 2012

This is quite possibly the best food we have ever had. We were going to the theatre and staff were very aware of this and made sure we had plenty of time to get there, but we were in no way rushed. We both had three courses each and everything was absolutely fantastic. You have to try this restaurant!! Decor is lovely and staff were great. I didn't realise chicken could be so amazing!

“Fantastic food at the Allium”
Reviewed September 10, 2012

My trip to Bath was finished with an evening in this really great Brasserie. Some lovely and interesting dishes on show, the caramelised sweetbreads were really something else. The place lacks a little in atmosphere but the food more than made up for that!
