I read The Curfew had been taken over by a hotshot young chef so we checked it out for lunch on Saturday. Gosh, some hard work had been done on the decor and the upstairs dining room no longer sported the jukebox and pool table of yore, instead being smartly refurbed in the manner of many 21st-century gastropubs. The menu offered 4 starters, mains and puds and we chose baked cod followed by plum crumble. Offered a drink, we were disappointed there was no sherry and no chardonnay, but this might well have been a consequence of the dictates of the pubco (mean-spirited enterprises that they are) rather than a policy of the new manager. Anyway, the food was delicious and the portions generous, and the service if on the slow side, attentive and courteous. Would we go back? Well of course, living in Bath we are somewhat spoiled for choice and The Curfew is on the wrong side of town for us. But we certainly wish the enterprise well and will give it a thumbs up when the conversation turns to eating out.
