This tightly packed city-centre restaurant celebrates its tenth anniversary this year (on a site some oldies still recall as ‘Hole in the Wall’). “Rob Clayton is a brilliant chef”, say fans (he came to Bath to head the kitchen at the luxury Bath Priory Hotel for seven successful years before launching under his own name). Ratings, though, are middling on account of those who rate the value equation here good rather than exceptional.

This “busy restaurant in the heart of this Georgian city” provides an attractive “combination of great cooking with good flavours, smart presentation and a relaxed, easy-going atmosphere” (even if the setting is “a little tightly packed”). “Wasn’t this the site of the legendary ‘Hole in the Wall’ run by George Perry-Smith from the 1950s? Clearly his spirit benevolently haunts this fine establishment!”

“Consistently fabulous” modern European cooking draws a steady stream of locals as well as tourists to this smart Georgian townhouse in the city centre – and it’s “very good value considering the quality”. Rob Clayton trained under the legendary Nico Ladenis before heading up the Bath Priory kitchen, among others.

For 31 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
