Fine Dining in Bath

Presented with the "Most Romantic Table" Award in the prestigious Bath Good Food Awards the Dower House Restaurant blends gentle splendour with detailed service.

The Dower House is the Royal Crescent's AA 3 Rosette Award-Winning Restaurant and one of the finest restaurants in Bath, open to both house guests and non-residents. A delicate combination of soft gold and rich blue fabrics alongside the feature wall of hand-stitched silk wallpaper combine to create a relaxed yet elegant setting for your dining experience.  With natural light streaming in through pictures windows for breakfast, lunch and afternoon tea and subdued lighting and candle-effect table lights in the evening, The Dower House is the ideal venue whatever the time of day or season.

Head Chef, David Campbell says;
“Our food is a modern take on classic combinations - our dishes have multiple elements all blending into one central theme, for example, a simple starter of Mackerel Ceviche will be served with six or seven smaller accompaniments that enhance, yet never overpower the main ingredient’

The cellar, expertly managed by Sommelier Jean Marc Leitao, complements the menus and provides ample choice for both the casual diner and the true connoisseur of fine wines.

The Dower House Restaurant is open to guests of all ages but we ask that ‘an adult atmosphere’ is maintained.  High chairs can be provided so please just ask or, should you wish for babysitting to be arranged, please do not hesitate to contact a member of the team.  For guests wishing to experience a more relaxed atmosphere, The Montagu bar serves our delicious ‘All Day Dining Menu’.  There is an excellent ‘Children’s Menu’ for our younger guests to enjoy.

All Day Dining Menu Available: 10am - 10pm
Lunch: 12.30pm - 2pm
Afternoon Tea: 3pm - 5pm
Dinner: 7pm - 9.30 pm (10pm on Saturdays)
