Food and drink
Meat, fish and veggie dishes feature local produce and carefully sourced ingredients – meat comes from Atworth, just outside Bath - veggies come from a local city producer, cheese comes from Bath’s The Fine Cheese Company and fish comes up fresh from the south coast. Menus change regularly depending on what’s available, but expect to find local game/meat, fresh fish and veggie dishes on there. At lunch sharing plates, burgers, sandwiches and salads grace the menu. Local ales and ciders are available, alongside an extensive wine list and great soft drinks like Luscombe Ginger Beer.
I never thought I’d say this, because I’ve always hated polenta, but their creamy herb polenta served with wild mushrooms, spinach, pine nuts, slow roasted tomatoes & herb cream sauce is amazing – game dishes are also delicious and in winter they host special ‘game nights’.
Country pub glamour with bright wallpaper, heavy wooden tables and specials chalked up on the blackboard. Relaxed and inviting – there’s a terrace garden for the warmer months.
Bright and breezy – the young staff are helpful and happy to tell you more about specific dishes.
Just up the road from the Royal Crescent and next to Royal Victoria Park in a row of Georgian houses known as Marlborough Buildings.
Starters cost from £6.50, mains £10.25 and desserts from £4.50 at dinner. They are currently trialing a set lunch menu that costs £12 for two courses and £15 for three.
