Went for a meal here because of the lovely building it is in and the view from the window. However the food was very disappointing. The chicken in the burger was hard and didn't taste of much at all. The salad was undressed iceberg lettuce, cucumber and tomato, much as you used to get decades ago. The service was fine... More

Garfunkels is perfect for quick and easy food that is tasty. I have also had breakfast here a few times which is great for people watching in the conservatory or outside when the weather is warmer.

Food was just okay, average quality but not cheap. £12/ £13 main average but small Peroni @ £4.50 !!! The building and main room is lovely and grand. Nice circular cubicles for 5 / 6 people However it's far better than Brown's next door which is just down right terrible and should be closed down. We left Brown's in disgust... More

I have to say although the staff are nice enough the food is pretty dire. Chicken strips and calamari tasted pretty ropey, rotisserie chicken was nice but chips were dry and butterfly chicken melt was the worst chicken dish of that type my partner has eaten. Amazing venue but the fact that we are the only people here at 7pm... More

Recently visited with my wife and 7 year old daughter. Eating places are in short supply in vicinity. Went here , service was quite quick and very friendly service. Food was very nice however the adult meals were £13 for fish and chips which for what you get is very expensive, that said £6.95 for an excellent children's meal including... More

Friends and I made a 1/2 day trip to Bath to see the Roman Bath's. It was Sunday and we arrived early for that Baths. Because the Bath Abbey is not open to visitors until 1:00, we needed a nice place to pass the time between the Baths and the Abbey. On a cold February Sunday, Garfunkel's was a perfect... More

We visited here last Friday lunchtime about 12:30. It was very quiet, the waitress was friendly and the food arrived quickly but then it should as the place was empty. I had the large fish and chips and my wife had the omelette. My wife's was nice mine wasn't so nice as the batter on the fish was uncooked and... More
