I recently celebrated my birthday and was given a voucher for the afternoon tea for two. Decided My Husband and Myself would try Patisserie Valerie in Bath, as even though we live locally we had never actually been inside the shop, but had just looked at the delicious cakes they have on offer through the window outside. I rang in... More

The staff were unfriendly, aloof and off hand. It was as much as they could do to take our order - and we had to wait for them to be bothered to do that as well. We almost walked out. As for asking whether they did any gluten free cakes, I am surprised the earth didn't open up and swallow... More

This was such a disappointing visit-the waitress was extremely off hand, probably bored. The cakes looked wonderful but lacked flavour

A group of us were in Bath to support a family member who was running in the Bath half marathon. We decided to get brunch/early lunch. There were four adults and a three year old. We were made very welcome and the staff were great with the three year old and very friendly and smiley. One had Eggs Benedict, one... More

Took the mother here after a wander round. Treated ourselves to the afternoon tea treat. Lovely, scones warm, tea hot, staff attentive. Thank you

Good Coffee, good cake- crap décor, needs an injection of ambience!...and a good makeover. Also the Fire door was locked which is a fire safety offence- why lock the fire door? This place obviously relies on its tempting window display of cakes but I'd hardly call it a proper patisserie. Tired, boring and potentially unsafe premises with that locked fire... More

We stumbled upon this shop while we stroll from the Roman Baths looking for a place for lunch. We didn’t know that this is a dessert shop. Only after when we sat down and were very hungry to look for another but it gave us a decent meal. I got Prosciutto Ham and Melon as a starter, Chicken Brochette as... More

Queued for a table but service and food well worth the wait Great to find an old fashioned patisserie with modern day ideas about timing and service I loved it and will return My mother would be in her element here... sweet tooth very satisfied and the eggs royale looked divine!

Disappointing slow service , the staff seem unable to cope with volume coming from the takeaway customers so the restaurant seems to suffer. Hot food was OK not great but I didn't have time to wait for cake that I had specifically come for.
