“Great food, attentive service”
Reviewed August 8, 2013

Have visited this restaurant several times now. The early bird special menu is great value and you can order from it right up to 7pm, my favourite dish is the roast duck breast - one of the more expensive items on the main menu but, for duck not over priced. The staff are always very welcoming and nothing seems too much bother. Only negative is the added service charge - we always tip and are fairly generous, but here the add 12.5% service charge to the bill and this isn't pointed out so be warned on the but otherwise a great place to dine.

“Best place for a sunny lunch”
Reviewed May 29, 2013 via mobile

We were disappointed that the Moon & Sixpence was replaced by a chain restaurant. However, it is still the best location for lunch in bath. Central to town, secluded courtyard and abundance of tables in the sun!
Service was excellent. Food was also good. Steak Frites and lunch set menu were fantastic value. Would go again and recommend to others.

“Service charge rip off”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

Why when the food, service and ambience are so good does the management, despite repeated protests, continue to include a 12.5% service charge.
Why should anybody pay them 12.5% on the VAT content of 20% within the bill?
The staff tell me they do not get any portion of the tips.
This French operation would not be legally allowed this rip off in France. Why here in Bath?
