The worst dining experience I have had in a very long time. The room we were eating in was cold there was no background music which created an uncomfortable dinning experience as we could hear other tables conversations. Absolutely no atmosphere at all, in fact seemed rather a tense atmosphere in the place. Tables far to close to one another. When we paid cash for our dinner we were informed she could not give us change as they didn’t have any resulting in her getting nearly £10.00 in a tip. Are they saying g this to every customer who pays cash.
Couldn’t wait to finish our meal and leave quite frankly.

Very polite and attentive service. We were out for a birthday meal and a candle with a cake was a lovely surprise.

Great food, good value. Personally I would have preferred more ambience to give it the highest rating, but the surroundings are very pleasant and staff friendly and efficient.

It was a last minute booking at random, but I think we lucked out, food was great and the service was perfect. Slight minus that we couldn't order any cocktails because the barman wasn't working, but other than that I would definitely recommend

Would definitely recommend this hotel bar. Lovely view when sitting outside and facilities inside are high standard.
Plenty of seating, good food and drink options. We visited to celebrate our trip to Bath following our wedding the day before and were treated to a very nice chocolate cake with macaroons, strawberries and chocolates. They definitely went all out for it and was much more than we expected!

Service was decent, no delays and enjoyed our refreshing drinks and tasty food (croquettes, spring rolls).

Service could not have been better. Accommodated two young children well and was very helpful. Food was good but not great. Plates were randomly hot even with salad and Ice cream! Great location just what we needed for children. Not overly fancy but better than gastro pub.

The bar area was dark and the light near us kept flickering. We were the only ones in the bar but still took 20 minutes for our afternoon tea to come. The afternoon tea was not tasty the sandwiches were very basic and the jam was all runny.

The restaurant was practically empty so no ambiance as such. Staff were very pleasant and helpful. We had a 3 course set menu which was delicious up to the desserts which let it down. Still frozen cheesecake and barely thawed Eton mess. If we stopped at 2 courses, the food would have received a five star.

Warm friendly service. No long wait. Outdoor table a welcome bonus. A couple of minor things. There was no paper or soap in the gents toilet (they had run out); and the i-calendar download from the app bizarrely said that I had booked a table at Abbey Hotel Kitchen, 1 Montgomery Street, Suite 700 San Francisco CA, together with the accompanying seven hour time-shift. But the Bath venue was expecting us.

Just the right amount of tasty food, well cooked .
Disappointed they couldn’t offer us asparagus without the bacon for the veggies with us.
Otherwise fresh local produce , good service and staff all kept masks on!

Oddly, even though we had made a dinner reservation, they sat us in the bar with the snack menus so we had to ask them to put us in the dining room with the dinner menus. My husband requested fish with sauce on the side but they forgot. He had to send it back. Then we were forced to eat separately because mine would have been cold by the time his came out another 20 minutes later. They did give us dessert on the house but it was still too bad :-(

The menu was limited but that was understandable considering this was the first day of serving dinners in house.
The green veg. (asparagus and french beans) were undercooked.

There used to be a good restaurant at this hotel but this was dreadful. The portions were small, tasteless and straight from a packet. The calamari were burnt, Chicken burgers tasteless and worse than any meal we have had in years. I was totally embarrassed at having suggested this place and stupidly thought that a reduced menu on the terrace reflected a simple efficient way to cater for outside. Other places have done this successfully but this was worse than motorway services food.
