The Location: Off the beaten track of Bath city centre, along an alleyway just behind the Assembly Rooms is where you'll find this hidden gem. Located towards the end of town recognised for its sophistication, Henry's address sets the mark for the evening ahead.
The Menu: Bursting with flavours from duck paired with pomelo to cardamom custard, this menu oozes with innovative twists on classic dishes. Head chef, Henry Scott's exposure to international cuisine, having worked in Sydney, France and London, brings this menu of seasonal ingredients to life. Local produce comes together in harmony with international influences to create dishes such as our starter of courgette fritters with a zesty kimchi and coriander mayonnaise.
The Decor: This small restaurant reminds us of the Septime or Seb'on of Paris; a chic but stripped back setting that allows the food to do the talking. Exposed wood is a main feature from tables to floorboards and the walls are decorated with works by local artists (one of which being the chef's sister) giving the place an air of authentic Bathonian charm.
The Atmosphere: With a relaxed, indie playlist that we couldn't help but Shazam as well as the jovial murmur of fellow diners, we instantly felt at ease at our window table (rumoured to be the best spot in the house). Henry's is obviously a favourite amongst locals...and we understand why they keep coming back.
The Service: The perfect balance of attentive but unimposing. We were taken care of by a couple of members of the small team throughout the evening, each one of them bringing a thorough but subtle attention to detail to the service. When asked if our meals were to our liking, it was clear that our waitress was asking because she really did care, not because it was simply her job to do so.
