    Delicious afternoon tea

    We enjoyed the relaxing atmosphere of The Pantry at The Bath Priory, extremely helpful and attentive staff. Whilst my husband enjoyed the two evening meals we had during our stay, I did not find a varied menu to suit my palette. I would be interested to see if the menu has more variety in the future.

    Amazing! I went there for a Full Afternoon Tea for my 70th Mom Birthday and she loved it! Definitely recommend, worth every penny.

    It was all lovely, special dietary quirks catered for beautifully. One of my favourite places for afternoon tea, just perfect!

    Very pleasant, comfortable, good staff and good food. It's a fairly limited dinner menu but it is only supposed to be a simple restaurant for the The Priory and we liked it. However, we thought the wine list was expensive for this particular restaurant which is generally aimed at less expensive and simpler meals than the main restaurant.

    The Bath Priory is an attractive hotel with a country house feel not far from the city centre and also close to open countryside. The staff were friendly and attentive and the food was delicious. We had afternoon tea, (one vegan), and the scones were particularly good. We went on a chilly December day and The Pantry was warm, cosy and inviting. We will definitely return and have recommended family and friends pay a visit.

    The team at Bath Priory are excellent. We visited for Afternoon Tea and everything was exceptional. We were very impressed with the staffs knowledge of Tea, Coffee and food. The way in which the choice of tea is offered is unique, the setting beautiful and sandwiches/cakes were excellent. Thank you for a wonderful experience.

    Expectation did not live up to reality. When we arrived felt that it was very difficult to get the attention of staff members and were often left without being checked on for long periods of time. We were not offered top ups or refills, which is not something you would expect from a five star afternoon tea experience. The food was fine, the scones were exceptional but apart from that it was very underwhelming. Plus, the room we were in was very run down and in need of painting touch ups.

    Great location, great food, service was slow and had to flag staff down to order a number of times

    Went to The Priory, Bath for afternoon tea as a birthday treat for my wife’s birthday. We were pleasantly greeted on entry and went for a cocktail each in The Library. We asked for an outside table as the weather was amazing and were promptly shown to our table. Our afternoon tea order was taken, but when I asked for ‘no butter’ the waiter said ‘sorry the the sandwiches are pre-prepared and this probably wasn’t possible. I questioned that surely the sandwiches are freshly made to order, but the waiter said “he didn’t think so’. I found this shocking for a restaurant of this calibre. Luckily after a few minutes the waiter returned to say it was possible, but the wait would be more than 10 minutes ? Actually it was more like 20 minutes, but afternoon tea finally came, and it was amazing (and no butter in the sandwiches!). When we finished my wife asked for the bill but after another 20 minutes nobody came, so eventually we went to the bar to pay the bill. So to summarise, the afternoon tea was truly amazing, but there is certainly room for improvement with the service we experienced on our visit.
