Went for a festive afternoon tea and we were not disappointed it was lovely. Staff very helpfull when changing some of the sandwiches to ones we prefered. Cakes and scones were yummy washed down with a nice pot of tea! Absolutely stuffed coming out of the shop but well worth it.

Not our usual choice for lunch but decided as it was nearly Christmas we could be forgiven for just having gateaux for lunch. Good choice. I had the double chocolate and my husband had Black Forest. Superb.

This was sadly nothing like one would expect from a French patisserie. The pastry on the very expensive raspberry tart was thick and stale tasting. It was reminiscent of the pastry on cheap jam tarts bought from the supermarket. We will never be repeating this experience again! I have eaten cakes at the Bournemouth branch in the past and they...

After living in France for over 10 years I have to say French cakes are pretty poor compared to the cakes you find in a British bakers, however they do make a nice croissant. Therefore now being a resident of Bath I went here to buy one. It was rock hard, like it had been there for at least a... More

We visited hear on 28 November for a lunchtime snack. The café was busy and welcomingly warm on a bitterly cold day. We were warmly greeted and shown to a table. There is an extensive offering of tempting light meals and delicious looking cakes and fancies. We weren’t really hungry, just taking the opportunity for a drink and a warm... More

Drool over (from outside!) the beautiful cakes and gateaux in this delightful café. Order the Eggs Benedict for breakfast or lunch. Enjoy the delicious coffee. The only slight downside is that it is a little crowded but just goes to show what a good deal you get here

I was a fan of Patisserie Valerie when I lived in London. The Bath one kind of lacks atmosphere a little in comparison, but it's still a nice place to stop for tea and a fruit tart.
