Chef Sam Moody has recently earned a Michelin star for his food at The Bath Priory and it shows. From the Amuse Bouche to the Petit Fours our taste buds were treated to an explosion of flavours. There are various menu options The Surprise Menu @ £100 where you are left to the chef to decide what you have, a taster menu £80 I think. We went for the a la carte @ £75 a head. we both had the same starters and mains: Crispy Brixham monkfish with spiced tomato and curry mayonnaise followed by Slow cooked loin of Wiltshire lamb, minted jersey royals, roast sweetbread, tapenade jus. I finished with Iced peanut parfait (10 out of 10) and my wife the theatre of the cheese trolley with as fine a selection as I have seen. (There is an option to have cheese and biscuits as a fourth course for an extra £12). All the food was excellent - special mention for the lamb which was pink inside but with a nice crisp outer 'skin'.
Service - all the staff we encountered were friendly, knowledgeable and enthusiastic. My only (slight) criticism is to echo a comment on a previous review saying the attention is just a little slow at times. We sat in the drawing room ahead of our meal and would quite happily have had a second drink there if we had been asked / if anyone had popped in to ensure we were OK.
All in all though a special night.
