* Based on a three course dinner, half a bottle of wine, coffee, cover charge, service and VAT.

Taking afternoon tea in this “wonderful Georgian setting with a trio playing during the meal” – and the Roman baths next door – is to wallow in English history, with literary visitors from Jane Austen to Charles Dickens as your guides. The nibbles – “beetroot-cured smoked salmon with homemade blini”, perhaps – are a secondary consideration, “but well worth having!”.

One of the UK’s quintessential afternoon tea experiences: the Georgian chamber next to the famous Roman baths. There are better cakes, sarnies and cups of tea to be had elsewhere to be sure, but few in quite such stately and suitable surroundings.

For 33 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).
