Some of our favourite restaurants to visit during your stay with us


We have set out below some of the restaurants we have been to in Bath – views are obviously are own and many of these we have only been once or twice so you may wish to look at other reviews of these restaurants - we have highlighted a few of our absolute favourites that we have been to many times.  Most of these restaurants are very popular and we would highly recommend that you make a reservation particularly for weekend bookings.

Antica ( – good Italian by Pulteney Bridge serving the normal Italian fare of pizzas, pasta etc

Bandook ( – slightly upmarket curry house - we were somewhat underwhelmed with the food and service but may just have been unlucky and always seems busy

Beckford Canteen ( – part of the Beckford group so high quality if a little expensive food

Cappadocia ( – excellent Turkish restaurant – again very popular but the service is good and the food excellent – more one for the meat eaters as the veggie options are a bit limited (ONE OF OUR FAVOURITES)

Chez Dominque ( – just by Pulteney Bridge this nice French restaurant has good food and nice atmosphere

Coconut Tree ( – this Sri Lankan chain makes a change from the norm and the quality of the food is good with reasonable prices

Dough Pizzeria (  – great quality pizza, large portions and friendly staff.  They have two branches but we have tended to go to the one in The Corridor (ONE OF OUR FAVOURITES)

Hudson Steakhouse ( – one of the closest restaurants to us – very popular and has a good reputation for steaks

Indian Temptation ( – has a reputation as one of the best curry houses in Bath – this curry house only serves vegetarian food but well worth a visit

Joya Steakhouse ( – a favourite restaurant of a friend of ours – we enjoyed it but didn’t think it was amazing.  Very busy at weekends

La Perla ( – atmospheric Spanish restaurant which we enjoyed but probably not as good as Pintxos de Bath

Mantra ( – good curry house and the food was excellent – service was a bit hit and miss but we went on a day it was very busy so may have been a one off and the staff were clearly trying their best

Noya’s Kitchen ( – great little Vietnamese restaurant and highly regarded by locals. Perfect for a lunch time visit

Pintxo de Bath (– this tapas restaurant is one of our favourites especially on a nice day as they have a wonderful sun trap garden out the back.  Food is good and prices reasonable and staff friendly.  You can’t book so just turn up and ask for table outside if the weather is good (ONE OF OUR FAVOURITES)

Pomegranate ( – we visited soon after it had opened – underwhelmed by the food and atmosphere but it might have improved?

Ponte Vecchio ( – another popular Italian near Pulteney Bridge – good service, nice food and reasonable prices

Rooted Café ( – one of our favourite places for breakfast, brunch or lunch.  Just out of the city on the way to Weston but this vegetarian restaurant serves wonderful food and the service is excellent (ONE OF OUR FAVOURITES)

Sally Lunn’s ( – very popular café in one of the oldest buildings in Bath and serves the famous Sally Lunn buns with either sweet or savoury toppings.  Often a queue outside so you may need to wait to get a seat

Same Same But Different ( – good place for a breakfast or lunch this café is a popular choice

Square Grill House ( – fantastic location next to Bath Abbey – seating area outside is perfect place for lunch

Stable Pizza ( – Pizza here is good but we think there are better options such as Dough Pizzeria

Thaikhun (– chain Thai restaurant in Southgate area but the food is really good and makes a change from other Thai places like the Giggling Squid

The Architect ( – large pub near Pulteney bridge – standard pub fayre but decent quality in a lovely building

The Circus ( – good quality restaurant in between the Royal Crescent and The Circus.  If possible try and get a table upstairs (on the ground floor) rather than the lower ground floor

The Green Rocket (  – a vegetarian café not too far from Bath Abbey.  We thought food was okay but not amazing but we have only been once

The Pump Room (– tourist trap but unique venue for afternoon tea whilst listening to a live classical quartet

The Scallop Shell ( – great fish restaurant which serves amongst other things one of the best fish and chips you will have

Walcot House ( – Great food, nice bar area, good service – this place seems to always be busy so definitely one to book ahead (ONE OF OUR FAVOURITES)

Wild Café ( – nice little café for lunch or coffee
