This Café is attached to the Holburn Museum and overlooks a pleasant garden area. I only had a Latte and a piece of Cake so nothing challenging for the staff to deal with. I was offered a menu on entering, chose, ordered and paid at the till and given a number, where the waitress brought it to me when it... More

No good for children! We live nearby but first time we'd visited. We ordered two adult lunches and a children's box to share between my 16 month old and his brother. First childs ham sandwich that arrived was on sour dough (too tough and dry for small mouths and new teeth anyway) BUT the bread was also stale so we... More

The menu we were offered for lunch was not the one on the website: choices were much more limited and less interesting. We chose the burger and wished we hadn't as it was very hard and not at all succulent as we expected. It was served in cardboard. We asked for plates and, after some delay, we were provided with...

We only stopped for a mid morning coffee as we were in the final stages of having walked the length of The Kennet and Avon Canal from reading to Bath . The park is a delight and can easily be accessed from the canal towpath. This café is part of the Holbourne museum but can be visited separately , although... More

This café makes the most out of its location, with huge glass windows looking out into Sydney Gardens, and a large outdoor seating area. The coffee and apple juice we had were both excellent. There were no issues with the service.

Having visited to see a special exhibition,a little disappointing,I called in the restaurant for lunch.The waitress who served me was streaming with a cold,giving change and serving food without washing her hands.. Whilst I cant be certain that I have contracted her cold I think this is quite likely. Please review your policy regarding staff illness.

Until recently I have enjoyed popping into the Holburne Museum's Garden Cafe for light refreshments (I live round the corner) - coffee, tea, croissants, etc. On my last visit I ordered a cream tea that consisted of a pot of tea and a scone with clotted cream and strawberry jam. From here things did not go well - the waiter's... More

While the menu is mostly light items such as salads, soups and quiche- the cafe is a great oasis to meet friends for lunch or coffee and afternoon tea. Housed in a modern glass extension at the back of an exquisite Georgian building, the cafe looks out at the lovely Sydney Gardens. Would recommend as a place to go with... More

I didn't have a lot of time in Bath, so I had not looked for a particular place to eat lunch. Having been to a few places in the morning, I continued to The Holbourne and decided to have lunch there. I had an idea of what to expect, based on Museums in London I decided to try the cannelloni... More
