The Circus Cafe and Restaurant is on a terribly nice Georgian street. But it's bookended by Bath's best ones: the Royal Crescent curves off one end, the arguably-even-grander Circus sits off the other. Consequently it's quite a pleasant surprise to find this place isn't horribly posh. The food is quite fancy, but the atmosphere informal and the prices fair. The muted dining room serves pastries in the morning, interesting lunches (such as spinach and sorrel soup, fresh Lyme Bay squid and kedgeree with a twist), buttermilk scones from 3pm to 5pm, and then inventive dinners. Menus change monthly, but most ingredients come from the West Country – succulent ducks from Bittescombe Farm, herbs and leaves from Castle Farm Organics in Midford. A small but interesting wine list is the perfect complement.
