Special Dinner In Bath

My husband and I will arrive in Bath on 9/21, our 37th anniversary. I would like to find a nice restaurant for dinner that night. I asked our B&B host for suggestions and she sent me a link to Trip Advisor. I’d like to know if anyone has any personal recommendations. I’m not looking for Michelin star type places, just a nice meal in a nice environment. Thanks for any help you can provide.

We found a wonderful seafood restaurant in Bath, The Scallop Shell. It had the very best fish and chips that we have ever had in the UK.

Cappadocia Restaurant-highly recommend. It was very popular but the tables were nice with a good wine list. Great service and food.
Oak Restaurant- Amazing vegetarian food, I didn't miss meat. Very creative and delicious.

The Scallop Shell was good but I thought of it more as a lunch place.

You need to make reservations for both places. Although you said you have a b & B, I stayed at No. 15 Guesthouse on Putney and loved it. Perfect for an anniversary trip. They met us at the train station and took our bags so we could begin exploring Bath immediately. Great service and rooms.

Thanks for the recommendations so far. I’ll look into them.

We are actually staying in an Airbnb with another couple as part of an almost 6 week trip with them. Bath, and then London is the end of our time together. We arrived in Edinburgh this afternoon. I’m sure we will be dining alone on our anniversary, which is a week from today, and I will definitely make reservations.

Yes, happy anniversary! If you like fish, the Scallop Shell could be a good option. We had dinner there twice in June and saw several groups celebrating special occasions. We especially liked their outdoor "upper deck" area, which also has heating and a retractible roof. Have a great trip!
