On the quaint, pedestrianised paving stones of Savile Row in Bath you’ll find Henry’s Restaurant - a modern British restaurant set inside a laid back bistro. Henry’s has become a bit of a fixture in Bath for those looking for relaxed fine dining, and chef Henry Scott has built a reputation for precise cooking with fresh, seasonal produce.
The interiors are suitably understated - expect natural wood floors, simple chairs and tables and a pop of saffron from the banquette cushions. Or, if you’re looking for somewhere to host a private dinner, consider exclusive private hire of the whole restaurant - Henry’s Restaurant is available to hire in its entirety for special dinners and the like, and Henry himself will work with you to tailor a menu to suit the occasion, whether it’s a private celebration or entertaining clients or guests.
Everything on the menu at Henry’s Restaurant is locally sourced and seasonal, and the tasting menus are split into a choice of ‘Farm and Sea’, or ‘Land’. Dishes on the former include smoked salmon parfait with sourdough cream cheese, white soy and nori, and Comte royale with roast cauliflower, balsamic shallot and quince. The ‘Land’ menu is entirely vegetarian, with dishes like mushroom, miso broth, potato and lemongrass, smoked potato ravioli with Parmesan foam, and ginger and turmeric chocolate fondant with cardamom anglaise and chocolate sable.
Tasting menus are available as five or seven courses, and because Henry’s Restaurant operates a zero waste policy, dishes cannot be switched out from each menu. There’s also a two course set lunch available from Wednesday to Saturday.
Henry’s also has a carefully curated wine list that includes a range of sparkling, red, white and rose from around the world, as well as the odd orange wine and dessert wine.
