It annoys me the way so called gourmet restaurants serve the cheapest cuts of offal at high prices. For once the Cavendish doesn't. The dishes are beautifully presented and taste divine. Yes, it's not cheap and the portions are typically small, but that's what you...More

From the first mouthful of foie gras to the last morsel of dessert, Cavendish offered a wonderful dining experience. The staff were knowledgable and attentive, and the chef was masterful in both the presentation of his dishes as well as his careful attention to detail...More

Foie GRAS to die for. Beef and chicken so tender you can cut with a fork. Presentation outstanding. Deserts excellent.

This restaurant should be top of the list! We ate here on Saturday and had a superb meal. The restaurant was quiet which I can only put down to be being a bit off the beaten track and not very well advertised. It is downstairs...More

We were extremely disappointed with this restaurant. In spit of our son booking 6 weeks ago, we were not in the main restaurant, but in a small featureless room of the bar - the only ones there. Only presented with a minimal table d'hote menu....More

Tucked away inside the stunning Grade I listed Dukes Hotel, The Cavendish Restaurant is a discreet and elegant addition to Bath's fine dining scene. The Palladian style Georgian town house has been restored to its original splendour, and the understated dining room has a sophisticated ambience and style all of its own. Head Chef Fran Snell heads up an award-winning kitchen serving modern British cuisine, and signature dishes at The Cavendish include the Cotswald rabbit served with carrot purée, sauté langoustines and tarragon and ginger foam; the maize fed guinea fowl served with forest mushrooms; and the delectable dark chocolate pudding with blood orange sorbet and cocoa-nibbed tuille.
