Described as ‘very special’ by critic Jay Rayner in his ruthless Guardian column, Allium showcases European haute cuisine from rising-star chef, Chris Staines. Look out onto the idyllic hotel grounds from the bright and airy dining room.

After holding a Michelin star for 7 years at London’s Foliage restaurant, Staines bring his exemplary cooking skills to Allium restaurant in Bath. Championing market-fresh produce and culinary flair, the Allium menu presents innovative dishes like chilli & caramel-glazed quail with Chinese cabbage, or slow-cooked pork belly with spiced black pudding and crushed carrots.

As well as a Sunday lunch menu offering high-end twists on the great British roast, the Allium afternoon tea menu features quirky treats. Alongside premium JING teas and fresh sandwiches, sample delicate macarons and peanut butter crunch biscuits.

A crisp, whitewashed setting filled with mauve furnishings and bold modern artwork, Allium is housed in the Best Western Abbey Hotel. Bath Spa Rail Station is a 3-minute walk away.

    Great cocktails to start, and a very enjoyable food experience. The pork fillet tasted excellent but I'd present it differently- showcase the pork fillet don't cover it with the foam!

    Great food in a relaxed atmosphere at the very centre of Bath.

    We have been here several times over the summer and went there based on Jay Rayner's glowing report on the food. It is fantastic! Just go there and see for yourself. The decor of the restaurant is a little bit random but we didn't go there to see if it would win any interior design awards. The staff are ultra-friendly, polite and attentive. We would recommend this restaurant without hesitation. This place is a hidden gem in Bath.

    Foot beautifully presented. Portions rather large for a ladies appetite!

    The service and food were impeccable. The men's toilets on the other hand were less than clean and a disappointment.

    Good service. Excellent mixed drinks and wine selection. I thin next time I would dine in the bar. The restaurant was cozy and had fun art. However, it seemed a bit stuffy. Maybe that was the clientele - older and quieter - but it wasn't a lively environment. The vibe just seemed off. We had a selection of apps/small plates. Good, but maybe not great.
