Whilst we appreciate it was a busy time of year with the Christmas Market and Bath playing at home, it does not excuse the fact that we waited 30 mins for a pot of tea which was half-full and tepid, and 45 mins for a basic breakfast order, which was whilst edible and just about warm was most uninspiring. Maybe... More

We arrived on Saturday evening without booking a table and they managed to fit 7 of us in! The food was good but the service could be greatly improved (nobody ever around when you need anything). I'm so glad I didn't visit the toilets before we had eaten as I wouldn't have stayed. They were so dirty, sanitary bins over... More

Beautiful old building and very well maintained, lovely and clean and very good staff. We ordered the half chicken , it was so moist and tasty and served quickly. This was our first taste of Garfunkels and will return again and again

Lovely setting - but that was the only positive really. The service was quick but that was suspicious - as my fries probably would have broken a toe had I dropped one. Burger was very small and 1 bacon medallion was what I got for £1.95. Won't return in a hurry.

7 of us had a lunch during our visit to Bath Christmas Market. Extremely busy but they were able to cater for us. Very speedy and friendly service; food was good but not special. I would score a good rather than average or very good.

I know it was a Monday evening, but this place lacked atmosphere and we had the feeling the staff were just going through the motions with customers, such as they were. A Chicken and Ham pie was what we wanted and the speed with which it arrived only served to prove it been cooked and rapidly heated before serving. Yes,... More

Lovely spot for a lunch. Spoilt by poor indifferent service and mediocre food. Kept waiting for drinks and food served was on a par with cheap takeaway.

We enjoyed Garfunkel's warm lobby for a PM cocktail. This is a renown hotel as well as a restaurant. There is another in London. Built in 1901, it sill stands tall.
