Harden's survey result
Chris Cleghorn’s “very classy and well-composed” cuisine maintains this well-known basement dining room as the town’s most accoladed foodie hotspot (it’s the only restaurant in town with a Michelin star) and he offers a variety of menus (with vegan and vegetarian options) focused in the evenings on tasting menu formats, although – unusually – they allow you to pick out individual dishes from them if you don’t want ‘the full monty’ and to pay per plate. The dining room itself is well-appointed and pleasant, but the constraints of this basement space are griped about even in the most favourable of reports (“tables close together…”, “room is a bit spartan for food of this quality…”).
“Truly outstanding” cooking from chef Chris Cleghorn continues to impress diners at this well-known venue, which won a Michelin star in October 2018 (becoming the only restaurant in town to hold one). The basement dining room doesn’t please all reporters though (“a bit quiet and lacking character”) and the experience is “not cheap”.
Chris Cleghorn’s “hidden away” basement hotel haunt is “quite different to most top restaurants…there’s a relaxed air yet it’s not casual in the wrong way”; on the food front he “never fails” – turning out “innovative dishes combined with expert presentation and at a sensible price”.
Chris Cleghorn’s deft, classically inspired cuisine at this well-established basement hotel dining room put in a formidable showing in this year’s survey; “excellent wines” too (“but then again we’ve come to expect that…”).
Proud to be one of Bath’s longest established independent restaurants, The Michelin Star and 3 AA Rosette Olive Tree, nestled in the basement of The Queensberry Hotel continues to receive rapturous praise from guests and locals alike. This contemporary British restaurant offers deformalised fine dining under the direction of award winning Head Chef, Chris Cleghorn, who honed his superior skills as the protégé of a trio of world-renowned Michelin Star chefs, (Heston Blumenthal, Michael Caines, Adam Simmonds). Using a combination of classical flavours with modern cooking techniques, Chris creates his own unique style, crafting menus that showcase the very best of British.
