Restaurant in Bath city centre

Beautiful Bath …… the gateway to the lovely Cotswolds

Our Restaurant – Brasserie Brunel

Casual dining in a French style brasserie setting with a menu to match,

Our newly refurbished restaurant is located in the lovely Grade II listed building designed by the famous architect Isambard Kingdom Brunel and we have named our new dining venue in tribute to this famous designer.

The decor and furnishings have been modelled on a traditional Parisian brasserie and the menu features a number of French specialities together with grills, including steaks, for which we are renowned. Wherever possible our food is sourced locally including our steaks from the highly respected Church Farms and the majority of dishes are freshly produced by a first class team of cooks. The menu represents excellent value for money and in addition to the extensive range of very competitively priced a la carte dishes we also offer two fixed price menu options namely, £9.95 for 2 courses and £12.95 for 3 courses.

Open from 12 noon until 10 p.m.

“Fabulous meals with perfect portion sizes”

We enjoyed a delicious 3 course meal here and found every single dish completely mouthwatering. The staff were friendly, with just the right level of attentiveness. The portions were just the perfect size so that no one came away feeling like they had horrendously over indulged themself! Highly recommend this restaurant and the prices were reasonable too.

“50th Birthday celebrations”

Booked 3 course fixed menu as part of a 2 day spa package with Bailbrook Lodge. The service was excellent with very friendly staff. Choice on the fixed menu was great although you can order from extensive menu and pay the extra. Food was served promptly and nothing was left on the plate!!! Thank you for a lovely evening.

“Superb Service & Food”

We had booked for 1pm but arrived early due to cold wet weather. Ellie greeted us with a most welcoming smile & showed us to our table. Mike talked us through the excellent menu & recommended a nice red wine from their wine list. The food was excellent, well presented & plenty of it. We would definitely recommend Brasserie Brunel as their food and service were just superb.

“Good food and service”

When booking we explained that we were two couples with two Tastecards – they were very helpful and said it was no problem (unlike some other restaurants). The menus was varied, the food good and the staff friendly. A pleasant place to eat with no loud music to disturb our conversation.

“Beautiful meal and ambience”

This Hotel/Restaurant is a treat find in Bath, with all the hustle and bustle of crowded small eateries this one has ample room, and the pace is just so relaxing. The staff are very pleasant, and the £13 three course meal is such amazing value, with a great size portions and plenty of choices and the taste/presentation is 5*……this beautiful building is almost opposite the train station in Bath so it’s easy to find. You will not be disappointed.

After walking out of a nearby establishment where I had planned to eat, I found this place and frankly was delighted: superb service, food & value for money. Would certainly use it again when in Bath.

“Delicious Delightful Delirium”

My beautiful Wife and I arrived in Bath and went to the spa baths with the rooftop pool and then delightfully tired we returned to our hotel in which the Brunel Brasserie is located. We weren’t really expecting much from a hotel restaurant as we are both trained cooks and enjoy very high quality meals at home. How wrong we were from the start the meal and service were excellent with a phenomenal wine list and food cooked and served to match our own exacting standards we could have been more happy. Our sincerest and heartfelt thanks go out to all the staff.
