Fabulous Sunday lunch with perfect meat, large selection of veg and plenty of gravy, plus properly done Yorkshire puddings.
Attentive and capable staff, nice selection of drinks available, plenty of space and a function room for events.
A brilliant transformation from the old place and I can't wait to come back again.

Went with a big group of friends late on a Thursday night after several recommendations. We wanted to play ping pong but the restaurant was so full that ping pong wasn't available!

A group of us ordered and changed our orders and reordered at once (all a bit confusing in itself) and one of our dirty burgers got missed out (understandably!) and we were offered a free drink to make up for the error!

Great friendly service, fun warm atmosphere and food to die for! You've gotta try the dirty burger! -No wonder they're always so busy!

I would recommend you definitely call ahead to avoid disappointment as it is so popular!

We decided to visit GBT after reading the reviews on Tripadvisor and also in Bath Life - and we weren't disappointed. It was relatively quiet, with only a few other customers dotted around the restaurant when we went, so we were very smoothly shown to our table. I think this place has a bit of a rep for being a run down pub but actually since being taken over, it's had a revamp and it is now a really pleasant, relaxed placed to eat. To start, the four of us shared the chicken wings and the baby monkfish. Both were excellent. I'm a huge fan of blue cheese so the blue cheese sauce that came with the chicken wings was extremely welcome. They also came with a bbq glaze which went very well with the dip.

For mains two of us had the 'dirty burger' which was amazing. My sister and I literally love burgers and these were incredible. They came with a really generous portion of pulled pork (nothing worse than when pulled pork is advertised and you get the most pathetic amount). My boyfriend ordered the full rack of ribs which were great and so juicy and his friend had the chicken - which judging by his clean plate - was pretty awesome as well.

We were far too stuffed to have dessert but we met the owner, who was lovely, and he offered us a round of limoncello, free of charge, which made the evening perfect.

All in all, the staff were great, the food was great and the atmosphere was great, what more could you want? We will definitely return. It take a pretty special restaurant to stand out in Bath, a city that is already full of amazing eateries, but this one certainly does!

NB I only rate the outdoor seating as average as it was far too cold to sit outside so couldn't comment on the outdoor area.
