Quite a quiet bar and restaurant, but good for large groups - we were 20 people and the staff easily took our orders for meals and drinks and kept separate bills as we were groups of family's. Salad bar is so-so, menu is okay for pasta, pizza, burgers. Bruschetta is awful it is nothing like Bruschetta. Burgers are okay, but... More

Took my 82 year Mum who suffers with alzheimer's. My only wish is that she has a nice time & something to eat. Neither happened. We fancied a toasted cheese, ham & tomato sandwich. I don't think the cook had ever seen one & yes it was on the menu. Every thing about it was wrong. I have never seen... More

All four of our meals were luke warm and bland. All of us left at least half or more of our food. At no point were we asked how our meal was. When I complained, the waitress just shrugged and grunted, no apology or anything. I'm gutted, it was a special day out for my husbands birthday and there were... More

Visited with family for pre pantomime dinner. Restaurant very quiet early evening. Just our party and one other family table. Limited menu, rather overpriced. Staff OK, food OK. Would not rush back.

We ate in the faded grandeur of what was a glamorous hotel. We chose from a wide range of breakfast choices, served by friendly staff. It made a good start to a shopping day at Bath Christmas Market.

Visited with my American cousins and suggested the Steak & Ale pie. Clearly microwaved as the pastry was soggy and I could only identify 4 very small pieces of diced beef in the pie. Very tired looking mash and very al dente beans. What a let down! Service was okay but the food was a big disappointment. Wouldn't recommend.

We booked here a month in advance as we were attending the bath xmas markets. The restaurant is conveniently located in the center and is easy accessible for the elderly and people with disabilities. We were created by very friendly and helpful staff and sat in the restaurant within the Conservatory. We were then assigned a waitress - I the... More

We had lunch here during our visit to the Bath Xmas market. It is a good location in the historic Empire hotel. We chose the fixed price menu and found it very good value. We both had the tomato soup for starters and it was very good. I had the quarter chicken with chips, corn on the cob and coleslaw.... More

Whilst we appreciate it was a busy time of year with the Christmas Market and Bath playing at home, it does not excuse the fact that we waited 30 mins for a pot of tea which was half-full and tepid, and 45 mins for a basic breakfast order, which was whilst edible and just about warm was most uninspiring. Maybe... More

We arrived on Saturday evening without booking a table and they managed to fit 7 of us in! The food was good but the service could be greatly improved (nobody ever around when you need anything). I'm so glad I didn't visit the toilets before we had eaten as I wouldn't have stayed. They were so dirty, sanitary bins over... More
