Visited on a Sunday morning before a trip to Bath Christmas market. Lucky to walk in just as it opened as it was full within a few minutes of opening. Seems to be popular with the locals which is always a good sign. Went for the full English- all ingredients were fresh and high quality and well cooked. Unlimited tea... More

We enjoyed fantastic tapas and great bottle of wine. Very cosy - double check your reservation as although I'd booked by email and had confirmation there was a mix up with our reservation making the reservation book. That said, we were treated to complimentary Kia Royals and they managed to squeeze us in. We would have been gutted if not... More

For a while there we stopped going owing to the “trendy” introduction of smaller portions on slates with lots of decoration but GOOD NEWS – the generous portions of tapas are back, possibly more delicious than before and still reasonably priced. We ducked in out of the freezing rain last Friday and the restaurant was a relaxing oasis of warmth,... More

We repaired to this intimate and cosy café for lunch after a long but fascinating walking tour of Bath (reviewed elsewhere on TripAdvisor). Grateful to get in from the cold and take the load off our feet we were unsure what to expect but were not disappointed. I had the special of the day, Ham & Bean hotpot, while my... More

We stopped at this cafe on our way to the Fashion Museum, we just wanted some coffee to keep us going through the morning. I was impressed by the lovely but very professional service from the guy serving, he was impeccable plus the coffee was well served and proper. I enjoyed my very short visit and hope to go back...

It is kind of hidden on the main street, which is a pity. But it is a very lovely space, with great food and very good sangria! definitely somewhere to go for brunch

Friendly service, great atmosphere. Pretty average fair. Burnt toast and dreadfully burnt coffee. Being from Australia means I have become a terrible coffee snob. If I was in Oz, I would've sent it back. Homemade baked beans rather than tepid tipped out of a tin would have been better. Still, it was better than the breakfast we had yesterday.

Thank ChampagnePair
