Never sit in the conservatory - no atmosphere, cold, loud.
Adjacent tables too close together.
Adjacent group consisted of three families against lockdown rules - poor policing by staff.

Our third time to go here. Very nice food, got atmospheres, with Tier restrictions quieter than normal on our third visit. Staff are very nice and friendly, and very good Covid measures in place. Good for parking too!

Would defiantly visit again!

We booked for Sunday lunch. It was a very safe and peaceful environment. We asked to move our original seat to a window seat which was no problem for the staff. We would book again.

Didn’t like the table in the conservatory overlooking the car park. Didn’t appreciate dogs being allowed in a restaurant albeit it was well behaved. Room was very noisy.
Carrots and sprouts were rock hard.
Hake was not a substantial meal, had to give half of mine to my husband who isn’t a massive eater.
Disappointing overall.

Worst meal ever in Bath. Very poor service, atmosphere and quality of the food is a disgrace. We tried again after two years not visiting but the disappointment was even worse than before.

Had a very nice meal on Sunday evening. We were not asked if we wanted a drink as we sat down. However, food was very nice as was the decor. The wrong food arrived but it was rectified promptly.
Would recommend and will definitely visit again.

Very nice but having been phoned prior to arrival to check we were all form the same household (which we appreciated), we were disappointed to see at least 3 groups that looked very unlikely to be from the same household. For example one group of 6 (3 young couples) arrived and sat together and were not challenged.

Roast pork: Good flavour, good mix of veg, skeptical about sprinkled crackling - obviously has to be dry - wasn't unpleasant however. Roasties were ok. I'd be after a better flavour and slightly more crisp...not sure the fat used, it could just be a case of slightly more salt, before roasting, to extrude the moisture and flavour the fat that little bit more.

I'm picking hairs on what was a good meal because it's ~£2 or £3 above average cost. Average price for an average plate would get a more favourable review!

The food was luke warm and gave the impression it had not been freshly prepared or cooked, rather it had been reheated.

This was just before lockdown 2, so we knew there would be a few things that weren’t as normal like the atmosphere etc. But it was lovely, great table by the window with amazing view, food was fantastic and dog friendly which is always nice too! Thank you!
