Steeped in Roman history, Bath is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the largest city in Somerset. But that’s not all – it’s also home to some fantastic restaurants, cafes and bars and has a wonderful food scene with so many great eateries on offer.
But, with so many options to choose from, where are the best places to eat in Bath this year?
Here are our picks:
The Pulteney Arms
First up, we need to talk about this local favourite. Famous for their Sunday roasts, the team at the Pulteney Arms are renowned for producing a traditional Sunday lunch at low prices. They also do some mighty fine, traditional desserts and a remarkable Yorkshire pudding.
The Scallop Shell
You can’t have a holiday or day trip without some traditional fish and chips, can you? Well, let it be known that Bath has you covered. The Scallop Shell is hugely popular with locals and is indeed an award-winning fish and chip shop.
This Italian-run pizzeria offers so much more than just your average pizza restaurant. With a real taste of Italy, the amazing chefs at Dough offer real Italian pizza on a range of standard and non-standard bases and crusts. Sit close enough to the front and you’ll be able to watch them handcraft your meal, too.
Looking for something a bit different? Look no further than Noya’s Vietnamese Supper Club. This is hugely popular and is very often booked up (the best review a restaurant can get, right?) but, if you are lucky enough to bag yourself a table, you won’t be disappointed.
Woods – Est. 1979
Yes, you read that right. Woods has become an absolute staple when it comes to the Bath food scene, having been around since 1979. With retro food and décor, this is a child-friendly eatery that is ideal for going as a family.
Menu Gordon Jones
Rated a full five stars on Trip Advisor, a visit to Bath isn’t complete without experiencing Menu Gordon Jones. This is a small restaurant that serves the finest quality food and, to top things off, it features an open kitchen – meaning you can watch a master chef at work.
Brasserie Brunel @ The Royal Hotel
Last but certainly not least is, of course, the Brasserie Brunel restaurant here at The Royal Hotel, Bath. With a Parisian theme and only recently refurbished, we offer a range of French specialities along with grills and locally sourced steaks. Come see us – you won’t be disappointed!
