I came here for dinner with a friend and we were both impressed with Jamie Oliver’s latest venture. The restaurant is tucked away in a small shopping mall off Milsom Street and is surprisingly large. We were shown to a table at the farthest end, where the initial modern décor gives way to something far more traditional and in keeping with the general atmosphere of Bath. In fact I realised later that we were in the old Circulating Library which on its exterior still bears the old sign (see photo 2).
Favorite Dish: To start with I chose squid which was served with a delicious red pepper mayonnaise dip, while my friend had a dish of baked mushrooms. We both chose pasta for our mains – he enjoyed a traditional lasagne and I had an excellent ravioli filled with ricotta cheese and served in a rosemary and pumpkin sauce. Despite being full we decided that we owed it to Jamie to check out the desserts, so he had lemon sorbet and I selected three flavours from the tempting ice cream menu – vanilla, hazelnut and dark chocolate, of which the last was definitely the star! With a bottle of merlot, the bill was a very reasonable £51 (without service), which we thought very good value for the quality of the food.
Service was brisk but friendly, and the place was buzzing even quite early on a Tuesday evening. You can’t reserve a table here, so I would say come early, as we did, or be prepared to wait in the bar area.
