Lonely Planet review
It's not quite the locals' secret it once was, but the Circus is still one of Bath's best. Installed in a converted townhouse between the Circus and Royal Crescent, it's the model of a modern Brit bistro: chef Ali Golden has a taste for hearty dishes such as rabbit pie and roast guinea-fowl, all seasonally inspired, impeccably presented and reassuringly generous. The dining room's cellar feels cramped when it's full, so aim for an upstairs table and reserve ahead.
