Bath is home to some incredible restaurants, from five-star dining to cosy gastropubs. Discover which ones have been recognised for their creativity and skill by the world-renowned Michelin Guide.

Michelin Star

Olive Tree

Olive Tree at The Queensberry Hotel is Bath's only Michelin-starred restaurant. The Michelin guide says: "Colours, textures and flavours are used to full effect in refined, creative combinations which have plenty of depth and, while dishes may appear simple at first glance, that’s all part of their skilful make-up. Funky, individually designed bedrooms boast designer touches and a host of extras."

Restaurant Hywel Jones by Lucknam Park

Just a short drive from the city, Restaurant Hywel Jones by Lucknam Park has retained its Michelin star since 2006. The Michelin guide says: "Rich, elegant décor, extravagant furnishings and sumptuous fabrics feature throughout, from the beautiful bedrooms to the drawing rooms where pre-meal drinks are enjoyed. Expertly crafted dishes rely on classic techniques but have a light, modern style, and ingredients are luxurious and of top quality. Structured service comes with as much polish as the silver."
