About The Circus Restaurant


The Circus Restaurant is an independently owned operation in Bath, which serves a menu of modern European dishes that evolves with the seasons, alongside a wine list that champions small-batch, artisan producers. The Circus Restaurant also offers private dining opportunities and is able to welcome groups for all manner of personal and corporate occasions.

The Circus Restaurant is able to accommodate large groups in its downstairs dining area. Private parties of up to 30 guests are able to book out this area exclusively during the week, from Monday to Thursday and the space can be used to host events ranging from milestone birthday dinners and family reunions to business lunches and charity fundraisers.

The menu here is a modern European affair, which changes throughout the year in order to make the most of in season produce. On your visit, you might begin your meal with starters of mackerel tartare served with green apple and shiso or a warm bowl of spiced pumpkin soup, finished off with pumpkin seeds and maple croutons. For your main course, try ribeye steak with Cafe de Paris butter, mushrooms, watercress and chunky chips or duck a l’orange in a spiced orange reduction. Vegetarian diners meanwhile can delight in the likes of falafel with Moroccan spiced hummus, pickled red onions, roasted cherry tomato and zehug (a dressing of coriander, garlic, chilli and tomato).

To finish up, you can choose from a selection of sweet puddings, which might include dark chocolate, caramel and almond florentine torte with creme fraiche and kirsch soaked cherries or Bramley apple creme brulee topped with a cinnamon crumble. Those who prefer savoury delights can instead opt for a seasonal cheese board.

To help wash it all down, there are house cocktails and an impressive list of wines which champions small, artisan producers.

Testimonials For The Circus Restaurant

"Hidden gem"OCTOBER, 2023

The circus is a “hidden gem” in the city of Bath. It is really close to the crescent. Circus menu changes seasonally but all of them are made with attention to detail, which i really like. For instance, some simple parts such as grilled lettuce or french fries are made with care. I would highly recommend cured seabass. It is a must order menu.The foods are excellent. The service is excellent. You should visit this place. I would revisit this place whenever I visit Bath.
