On our first night in Bath we dined at this establishment and enjoyed every facet of the evening. Good wine list, excellent menu and attentive servers. We ordered the lemon sole and the lamb. Both were cooked to perfection. Perfect evening.

The service was very friendly and quick. A good selection of beverages to choose from. I had the eggplant lasagne which was bursting with flavour and was perfect for a winter evening. The entree bread was perfectly cooked and there were also many vegetarian options.
