“What you would expect from a place with a Michelin star”
Reviewed January 9, 2013

We stuck to the £25 set lunch and could not find reason to fault it. The food is delicate and very tasty and the service was attentive. The presentation of the food is by no means revolutionary, but that is hardly a criticism. My sea bass was the highlight of the meal, although to stress that and not mention the pollock tartar or the banana soufflé is not fair (although the rum and raisin ice-cream accompanying the desert was a bit of a tasteless letdown). Portions are small (as expected) but the little extras (a "complimentary" Velouté and some lovely breads) mean you don't go away with an empty stomach.

“Excellent lunch faultlessly served”
Reviewed January 5, 2013

Quality service, great food, small but satisfying portions with pleasant ambience, good decor and reasonable prices. Went for a Saturday lunch, £10 cheaper during the week!

“Perfection”
Reviewed January 1, 2013

Had the pleasure of eating here at a lunchtime.

What a sheer delight, a lovely setting, its like being sat in a cosy front room at times.

Restaurant is more formal but still you can relax.

Service is excellent, so knowledgable about each choice.

Food is perfectly presented without making it into inedible art , i was pleasantly surprised that you actually finished the meal feeling full!

Lovely choice of each course, nothing disappointed at all.

Outstanding value for money when you eat at lunchtime, with drinks aside, you are not far off chain restaurant prices which is incredible.

I had the cheese to finish and the range, knowledge by the staff and the plentiful supply of bread and biscuits was excellent.

This would rate as one of my top dining experiences ever, will be revisiting for sure.

“Excellent food, in a lovely historic hotel.”
Reviewed December 27, 2012

A lovely meal, we were greeted on arrival and shown in to the drawing room, for pre dinner drinks and amuse bouche, we ordered Scallops, Mallard and Terrine to start, followed by Turbot and Sea Bass, the Turbot was served with Beef Cheek, so we asked the Sommelier for a lighter red wine, and he recommended the Austrian red, Burgenland Blaufrankisch, which was light and soft and excellent value at £41. Cheese and dessert to follow, and Coffee and excellent Petits Fours to finish a memorable evening.

“A culinary haven in Bath”
Reviewed December 18, 2012

We booked the lunchtime menu here as a break from Christmas shopping and really have no regrets. We were treated well by all the staff, extending a level of courtesy that should be an example to all. The meal was delightful and very good value at £35 for three courses. The fact that the chef, Sam Moody, has just gained his first Michelin star was evident from the quality and flavours of the meal. The wine was excellent, but pricey, but this was a treat for us, so we had no objections to that. All in all, the meal with wines, water and coffee was superb and we look forward to returning there soon.
If you want a high standard of cuisine, then be prepared to pay for it.
