Great restaurant serving excellent food. The pepper squid was delicious followed by turbot. Nice with some extra chips - triple cooked. The service was good and the bill was reasonable. Very good

Now this is what a good food pub should be - visited for Sunday lunch and there is little more to say but great food, great wine and good value for money. Worth the walk up the hill out of the city centre.

Off the beaten track, this small pub was nice to stumble across for a quick lunch. The food and drinks were interesting and of good quality, the atmosphere, fine, especially the jazz soundtrack.

I was ready for 'the best roast dinner in Bath' and instead I was served with a mediocre offering. Potatoes rock solid after being kept warm throughout service (we were a late booking). Nice cauliflower cheese but the meat was a mix of lamb, one...More
