Good food with option of today's fish. Service was good but a bit slow. Seating available upstairs and downstairs. Would visit again.

Had a wonderful three course dinner at Valentines' at The Circus restaurant. Friendly staff who provided great service, and nice atmosphere. Both traditional and some original dishes on the menu. Absolutely delicious food, and generous portions. We also got to take home some roses when we left, which made the evening even more special! Very good value for money.

Absolutely lovely restaurant. After reading other reviews this place definitely didn't disappoint. The only thing I would say is make sure you book in advance. The food was incredible, I had the beetroot soup, steak (with an additional potion of veg) and the rhubarb creme brûlée. If I had to offer any improvements it would only be that I would... More

nu his restaurant gets good reviews but we were slightly disappointed by a limited menu which had both good and very average meals. A limited menu should offer exception quality but the pork loin was tough and not anything special. Ox cheeks much better but still didn't make up for the mediocre pork

Thank you for your feedback. We're sorry you were disappointed with your pork loin on this occasion. It is always good to point out that you weren't happy with your meal at a restaurant at the time, to the front of house manager. We always take any criticisms seriously and will replace meals if they are not up to scratch.... More

Can't recommend this restaurant highly enough. Excellent, locally sourced food, cooked to perfection, then served by the friendliest staff you could wish to meet. They manage to be very attentive, without ever being intrusive. My wife and I enjoyed a wonderful anniversary dinner, and we will definitely be returning on our next visit to Bath.

Chose this restaurant for our special night out in an 'old girls' school re union. Worked perfectly. Good food in a relaxed and friendly ambience. Not too starchy and excellent service. Fish got the highest rating but the beef was good too.
