The Circus Restaurant Diner Reviews
"An excellent choice for good food in the heart of the most visited part of Bath."
"It was packed with Christmas parties, so I suspect this wasn't a fair trial and the food is usually better"
"One of the better and always reliable choices in a tourist town littered with chain restaurants. Surprisingly affordable given it’s prestigious location next to the famous Circus. Champions fresh fish and salad dishes."
"Maybe the kitchen is becoming a little complacent but the standards here seem to be slipping a bit. The menus used to change monthly but now they have become 'seasonal' and all a bit alike. Staff still fantastic and the atmosphere is the same as ever, especially if you avoid the tables in the basement."
