Firstly I should hold my hands up, deciding to visit Bath during the Christmas markets and not making reservations for food beforehand is an error on my part and not one that I will make again. This lack of planning on my side meant that I was scrabbling around to find somewhere to eat with my wife and 2 year... More

Booked a large table super short notice and they were more than happy to help. I explained it was a birthday surprise and they hid everyone out of the way. The food and service was great would highly recommend it.

Turned up for a family gathering on a non-too busy weekday in half term. 5 adults and 4 kids. Sat down at 1pm, drinks order arrived around 15 mins later...food had not arrived by 2pm so we all decided to leave. Drinks were given 'on the house' for which i've given them 1 star. Ended up having fish and chips... More

Crap birthday Sunday lunch had to wait 50minutes for main course, cold and tasteless when it finally arrived it ruined what should have been a family birthday lunch,you are surrounded by decent chain pubs make sure you do not visit this one.
