Brasserie Brunel – French Style Brasserie Restaurant

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, £10.95 for 2 courses and £12.95 for 3 courses.

Open from 12 noon until 10 p.m.

Well prepared meals

This is a very nice restaurant in a good location. The meals are very well prepared with quality ingredients. The prices are actually less than I expected for a restaurant this nice. I would go there again and recommend it.

Great food – tasty and well presented

They must have a very good and well trained chef here. The food punched way above it’s weight – the chicken option was superb in an excellent sauce, as was the pork belly and the steak. You did not have to guess it was all freshly made and beautifully presented. Puddings were a treat. A great place for that special meal.

We booked a table for 8.00pm on a Saturday evening – we had seen the menu in our hotel & the hotel booked the table for us as this entitled us to a discount. The food, wine & service was all very good (a special mention needs to go to the French onion soup!) and we would dine there again if in the area. We were all very happy with our choices and all three of the courses were delicious – we each had different options & were all full when we left! A lovely evening.

The perfect end to a perfect holiday in Bath! We visit the Royal each year to eat and the food is consistently excellent as is the service! The Lamb rump was one of the best I’ve had and the folks loved the chicken.. And try the white chocolate and amaretto brulee … See you next year.

Excellent choice and quality of food

The restaurant was busy for breakfast and provided a good variety of hot food, as well as alternatives for those who preferred fruit and yoghurt. Our one evening meal there was also excellent and the menu quite varied enough for the vegetarian tastes as well as a good choice for others.

Really, really good!

This was a fantastic meal. Lovely service, great menu. Easy to choose our fav meals. From the box-baked Camembert with trimmings to an absolutely delectable Pea Risotto that I could have eaten twice to 2 smashing fish dishes – I would happily have travelled even further to enjoy all of it. We celebrated a great meal with 3 glasses of Taittinger each & it was easy to choose a beautifully presented Sticky Toffee Pudding, me with clotted cream AND custard & my daughter with extra honeycomb ice cream. The vegetables were cooked al dente. The butter sauce with my sea bass fillets was to die for. Love this chef. The food & pleasant service were OUR main events!

Visit to Brassiere Brunel was from a local hotel package deal we purchased online so wasn’t expecting much. But it was fantastic, the choice of meals are great, all very fresh and tasty. Lovely presentation and came out steaming hot. Staff are also fantastic too, very polite and helpful. We will definitely be returning soon. Keep up the great work

What a brilliant lunch

We went to the Royal in Bath for lunch and we were so pleased that we did. The service was fantastic and we had one of the best meals ever. It was gloriously relaxed and we were well looked after through all three courses by our waiter James. The champagne on arrival was a nice touch and the quality of the food was excellent throughout. All in all above outstanding and highly recommended.
