We'd tried to get a table at Clayton's for months - finally settled for a midweek booking. The food was ok - not the best we've had in Bath but good enough. Just ruined by the complete lack atmosphere (it was cold and the overhead table lights were painful) but the real problem was the waiter - a middle class student who gave us the impression that he wasn't that bothered really. We struggled to gain his attention - even to order a second glass of wine. In fact he was only truly happy when talking to other middle class students and their families. Made us feel like strangers in a strange land - we will never go back (and we eat out in Bath twice a week). Very disappointing.

My wife and I took our daughter here following her graduation. We had an excellent and varied meal in an atmosphere that was conducive to chatting as well as to eating! The service was timed just right giving us enough time to eat without feeling rushed. Starters and main meals were excellent, topped off with a delicious dessert.

It is located north from Roman Bath, just a couple of minutes walk. I think this is one of the restaurants a group is operating in Bath, and you will find the similar cafe or restaurant just next to it. I dunno but all the foods must be similar/same. We chose to table outside to enjoy the warm sunlight, and ordered a salad, soup and grilled sea bass. All of them were decorated nicely, and tasted gently, extracting the nice essences from the veg and fish used. Staff service was also decent, highly recommend to have a lunch in Bath!

Luckily we had pre-booked - as this is a very popular restaurant. As it was a very hot day, we popped in during the afternoon and asked Milla if we could ensure we had a table in the window, next to the open door. No problem at all.
Food and drinks were great. Food was well presented and very tasty. I had a chicken salad and my husband enjoyed a steak.
Milla made the evening fun - and she did a fantastic job, especially as the restaurant was short staffed.
