Location and contact

Proud to be one of Bath’s longest established independent restaurants, the one Michelin Star and 3 AA Rosette Olive Tree provides one of the best experiences of fine dining Bath has to offer. The hotel is a stylish contemporary boutique hotel, but the restaurant is an oasis of calm modernity, with excellent British food served with a great attention to detail in relaxed, informal surroundings.

Absolutely fantastic food. Best meal I’ve had in the UK. Service was excellent as well - thanks to Jake for the great experience! It’s not cheap and it’s not quick, but it’s worth it
