Stumbled across the Royal Crescent Hotel by accident when visiting Bath for a weekend away from London. Stopped by to see if they could accommodate us for dinner at The Dower House restaurant upon noticing the Relais & Chateau designation. We were delighted to see that they could and frankly cannot explain why this was the case on a Saturday evening at such a fine establishment. From here, I'll keep it brief. Having travelled to dozens of countries always in search of the finest cuisine, this random find easily ranks in my personal top 5. The food was flavorful, inventive, perfectly timed & portioned, beautifully presented and executed with the perfection of service that you would expect at a R&C. The very able sommelier provided excellent parings and thankfully did not foist a full flight of glasses to match all 8 courses onto us. I've never written a tripadvisor review before, but this experience compelled me to do so, partly because the restaurant wasn't full on a beautiful summer weekend night, which left me baffled. What they are providing here is a truly special and noteworthy experience and warrants a trip to Bath in its own right. Stop messing around and book it - you will not be disappointed by this flawless experience that is actually reasonably priced compared to what you would pay for something similar in London or Paris.
