Closed for three days last week due to "kitchen equipment problems" and, on our visit last night, there was one person in the kitchen and one front of house, What a comparison.to the last time we went when there were several waiters and a few in the kitchen.
Very odd.Consequently the service was slow and the dishes all came out at different times. On asking what the problem was I was fobbed off with "its holiday time and many of the staff are away".I don't think so. Having said that the food itself was good.If it returns to its former glory I'll be back but if not that's the end of a beautiful relationship,

Went for lunch with friends before going to the theatre. The starter of poached egg with asparagus sauce was nice but the lasagne was tasteless. My friend and I had never had one like this before. Obviously not cooked as one dish as it usually is. Layers of too al dente pasta with more like cottage pie in between and a white sauce and a Parmesan crisp on the side. Not what we expected.

Unfortunately we were late arriving due to traffic so we were anxious about getting to the theatre on time. We explained this to the waiter who was curt and very unhelpful and we only just made the opening curtain but no thanks to him.

In my opinion this is a “meh” kind of place and Bath has loads of better options. We had a decent starter but the mains were lacking taste and/or quantity; you need one or the other really.

The ambiance was lacking and the bill was about 10-20% over what I think the experience is worth.

Won’t be going back and wouldn’t recommend.
