The Brasserie Brunel is a restaurant attached to the Royal Hotel in Bath. As we were staying at the hotel we decided to include dinner and breakfast in our stay - which was an excellent decision. Dinner consisted of a starter, main and dessert. I had the soup of the day as a starter, which was a mushroom soup. It... More

We were told we could have anything from the menu as part of the deal we had and this was absolutely the case. There was a wide range of choices and the food was very good - I... More

We had a fabulous lunch I had Squid and my wife had Avocado and Strawberry Salad to start. The Steaks we had for our main meals were nicely cooked and accompaniments were lovely. Staff were very friendly and service was great. Would recommend highly.

What can I say other than delicious! Not a huge menu, but more than enough to suit any preference. Even on a Groupon deal, all the ala carte menu was an option including steak. I had the flatbread starter - a good portion and very tasty, the shin of beef - which fell apart, on a base on horseradish mash... More

Description
Brassiere 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.
