A cosy restaurant nestled in between the Royal Crescent and the Circus, it has great charm and ambience. The tables are close together and it is usually full in the evening, so book ahead! The food and service are always good.

What an amazing review from someone who sounds faintly Dickensian, but I'm feeling that your soubriquet is a bit of a ruse? Whatever, we are really thrilled with such a glowing report from a person who obviously knows his/her food and we're very glad you...More

Busy, bistro style restaurant. Glad to say it’s vegan and veggie friendly, lots of choice, varied menu and better still, veggies were treated like normal diners. Prices reasonable for Bath city centre, would happily return. Staff were really, really good.More

Didn't quite live up to expectations based on some other reviewers' comments. However, we enjoyed pleasant food in pleasant surroundings served by Maisie, an exceptionally efficient and charming waitress.

Small, busy, much admired, family-run restaurant; serving seasonal, locally sourced, freshly cooked food; charming and welcoming staff; sensible and honest prices. Set in a fine Georgian house in Bath's most beautiful position - between The Circus and The Royal Crescent. Voted number 4 in the United Kingdom by The Times "Twenty secret restaurants that foodies love". Bookings advised.
