The Great Bath Feast returns this month for a nine-day celebration of the World Heritage City’s vibrant food and drink scene. From the 1-9 October food lovers can savour a menu of culinary delights, so let us spill the beans on some of the highlights.

Bath Bites Food and Drink Fair will be spicing things up in Abbey Churchyard with 12 locally- sourced food vendors, serving a wide array of delicious hot and cold food to get the taste buds tingling. Granny Garbutt’s Gin Palace will bring a touch of luxury with an extensive menu of more than 100 gins, including local favourite, Bath Gin.

Take a look at our 9 of the best cocktail bars in Bath for potential places to head for drinks after the fair.
