Giggling Squid

Pull up a seat inside the flower covered pergolas of Giggling Squid and take your pick from familiar Thai favourites and contemporary dishes experimenting with unexpected flavour combinations.

The Ivy Bath Brasserie

Serving a contemporary British menu, Ivy Bath Brasserie exudes elegance and charm. Take a seat beneath the blue and white rococo ceiling to enjoy relaxed, yet sophisticated all-day dining.

Café 15 at No.15 Great Pulteney

Vibrant sharing plates and simple seasonal dishes with influences from around the world are at the heart of Café 15. On Sundays savour a long and lazy three-course brunch with free-flowing prosecco whilst admiring the quirky collections on display in the antique chemist’s dresser.

Brigit’s Bakery

At Brigit’s Bakery you can indulge in L’Afternoon Tea, a great Bath tradition with a French twist. Alongside the dainty cucumber sandwiches and freshly baked scones you will find Quiche Lorraine and brioche packed with scrumptious fillings. Watch the world go by from the terrace tearoom or take your tea on tour. Board B Bakery’s double-decker bus, float along the River Avon or pack an afternoon tea picnic to enjoy in one of Bath’s beautiful parks.

Noya’s Kitchen

Expanding on her popular supper club programme, Noya, one of Bath’s food heroes, has opened a Vietnamese café in the city centre. Tuck into balanced, aromatic dishes where fresh ingredients are carefully layered to create delicate flavours.

Overlooking Pulteney Bridge, Framptons offers British, bistro-style dining in stylish surroundings. Using locally sourced, seasonal produce Framptons creates delicious dishes for breakfast, lunch and dinner whilst the bar offers a complete range of drinks from English sparkling wine to local craft ales and carefully concocted cocktails.


Soak up Pintxo’s laid-back San Sebastian vibe whilst savouring an authentic taste of Spain. Bask in the summer sun in the charming sherry garden and soon enough your table will be groaning under the weight of a selection of small plates, carefully crafted from a clever combination of fresh local produce and the very best Spanish specialities.

Comptoir Libanais

For authentic, wholesome and healthy Lebanese food served in a vibrant and casual souk-like setting look no further than Comptoir Libanais. Share traditional mezze such as smoky baba ghanuj, lamb kibbeh and squeaky halloumi, grab a lamb kofta wrap or tuck into a chicken tagine.

Tapas Revolution

Talented Spanish chef Omar Allibhoy has brought his Tapas Revolution to Bath. Focused on sharing and adventurous eating, his menu of small plates brings the real taste of Spain to the city. Expect all the classics, such as tortilla, calamari and chorizo and look out for the range of premium gin and tonics, served in traditional balloon glasses.

Absurd Bird

For comfort food from America’s Deep South take a table at Absurd Bird. The quirky interior takes its inspiration from New Orleans, with a Mardi Gras inspired bar surrounded by French style balconies. Signature dishes include chicken and waffles in smoked sweet gravy and the tasty sweet potato bake with toasted marshmallows.


On a hot day nothing can quite raise your spirits like an artisan gelato from Swoon. Made using Somerset milk and the finest ingredients, Swoon’s gelato is lovingly churned that little bit slower to make it even creamier. Succumb to one of the guest flavours, savour a classic such as salted caramel, or try a light and zingy sorbet.
