The Gaff restaurant opens in Bath, making food memories on small plates

A place of elevated home comforts and social dining, The Gaff has opened its doors on Milsom Place in Bath. Following the highly successful launch of The Gaff in Abergavenny during 2019, owners Danielle Phillips and Dan Saunders have now created a cosy but contemporary restaurant and bar in the heart of the Georgian city, offering a daily-changing menu of bold and beautiful small plates. 

Taking its name from the Irish slang for ‘home’, The Gaff blends refined culinary craft with a warm and welcoming environment. Intended to be a home from home for its diners, the 30 cover restaurant features a 16ft open kitchen that stretches across the dining space, allowing the chefs to interact with guests throughout their meals, as well as a four seat Chef’s Table and a private dining room, The Cwtch, which seats six guests. 

The Gaff menu begins with the best possible ingredients, which are then prepared with respect and passion. Each dish is rooted in the chefs’ own memories and experiences, resulting in a menu with strong modern British influences, which also takes in culinary inspiration from further afield.  

Signature dishes include Sticky Lamb Shoulder on a Sourdough Crumpet with Housekeepers Sauce, Middle White Pig with Charcuterie Sauce and Pickled Cabbage, and Miso Aubergine with Soy, Ginger and Shiso. Dessert options include the Gaffa Cake, Rhubarb Trifle, and Caramel Panna Cotta with Popcorn and Praline.  

Danielle Phillips, co-owner of The Gaff, commented: “For us, food is all about people coming together for a shared experience, so we want The Gaff to embody this, from the dishes themselves to the service and environment. While innovative and intricate, all of our dishes are inspired by memories and moments in our team’s lives. They take diners on a nostalgic journey that we hope will trigger their own food memories, whether home comforts from childhood or new experiences on their travels. Our guests can expect the warmest of welcomes and we encourage as much social interaction as possible. We’re so excited to have joined Bath’s revitalised hospitality scene and hope to contribute something special to this incredible city.” 

The Gaff in Bath is open from Tuesday to Sunday each week. Diners can book via
