I took my wife for our anniversary, initially for a meal but decided to book a room last minute. The food was absolutely top notch, fantastically presented, well executed and is a without doubt 1 michelin star standard - get in while you can! Monday night and it was packed. The price for the quality I feel is an absolute bargain (£39.50 3 courses) - go to Bath Priory and you pay £68.50 for 3 courses. The wine list is just large enough, with a fair selction from around the world. Despite my best efforts, I ended up going for an old favourite of mine (Rioja reserva) which drank beautifully and superbly priced at £28.50 for the quality.
I echo all the previous comments regarding the rooms, full of character, charm and the bathrooms are great too. We stayed in Mary Bell - unfortunately the mattress does need addressing as there was a big dip in it and didn't lend itself to a great nights sleep.
Back to the positives - Jane was absolutely fantastic from booking to arrival and looking after us at dinner. The team were faultless - friendly, discreet, welcoming and knowledgeable.
Without doubt an outstanding find - and not a Moody Goose in sight! Highly reccommended
