Summary

“Fun and full of surprises” – Gordon Jones’s “quirky” operation on the edge of town provides a “top experience – up with the best”. “You have no idea what’s coming” as there’s no menu or choice; instead, Jones decides what to cook each day, conjuring up “amazing food and drink with interesting conversation”. “The absolute highlight was snails and test tubes – they serve snails along with test tubes filled with different sauces to go with them...”.

Summary

Don’t expect a menu (“the chef decides what to cook when he sees what his suppliers deliver in the morning”) but do expect a “great experience” at this small and unusual spot with an open kitchen, on the outskirts of town, benefitting from “lots of natural light”, and notably creative multi-course tasting menus.

Summary

An “unmissable treat” on the outskirts of town (south of the city-centre) – this “highly innovative” venture delivers a “one-menu surprise for the whole room”. Some feel that “the decor is a bit strange” (“basic and small”), but “you go for the fantastic creations of the clever Gordon Jones, who’s always there, beavering away in the open kitchen”.

Summary

“Off-beat, irreverent, and exciting!” – the “experimental” cuisine is “really surprising” at this “progressive” but “no-frills” and “cramped” gourmet experience to the south of the city centre. When it comes to the tasting menu, “it’s so much fun, as you don’t know what you’re going to get”, but “the flavours are always firing on all cylinders”, and there’s “a very original wine flight accompaniment”.

Owner's description

Listed in the Sunday Times' Top 100 Restaurants in the UK 2016 and regional winner of the Good Food Guide’s Restaurant of the Year 2015, Gordon Jones is cooking up a storm with his surprise tasting menus. Just a short stroll from Bath city centre, this temple of fine dining is disguised in rather unassuming surroundings, but there is no doubt that dining here is an event you won’t forget. The food cooked by the Michelin trained Chef is breathtakingly beautiful and above all it is mouth wateringly delicious. The waiting list for a table in this 20 — cover restaurant is long so book early to avoid disappointment.
