It's all about the “seven-course tasting menu (£70), not too heavy and a complete secret until they bring out the food and tell you about it” at chef Gordon Jones’s “friendly”, intimate venue, outside the town centre, and animated by “lots of cheerful banter” from the staff; “we have lived in Bath for 15 years, and are complete foodies, so why has it taken us so long to get here?!”.

“Gordon Jones is expert in the flavours he can coax out of sometimes-modest ingredients” and his ‘surprise’, no-choice tasting menu of “well-coordinated and beautifully presented” dishes makes his “small but sweet” venue (in a somewhat “ordinary location”, just outside the town centre) into “a foodie’s temple of joy!”. “Quirky but worth a detour”.

“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...”.

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).
