Post-lockdown eats – 5 of the best Bath restaurants now back open for business

10 August 2020

If you’re planning to visit Bath soon, there’s good news. Many of the city’s best cafes, restaurants and bars have reopened (or will be reopening soon) following the coronavirus lockdown, so you can get a taste of Bath’s fantastic foodie scene. 

Better still, some eateries are taking part in the government’s Eat Out to Help Out scheme between Monday and Wednesday during August, so you can get a discount on your meal. 

Let’s take a look at just 5 of the incredible Bath restaurants that are back open for business:

  1. Oak (formerly Acorn Restaurant)

This popular plant-based restaurant on North Parade Passage serves fresh, modern food using local ingredients and artisan producers. It’s one of the best places for vegetarian and vegan gourmet food in the city, and you simply must try something from the brilliant natural wines selection.  It reopened on 17th July after a rebrand, now known as Oak. 

Eat Out to Help Out: No. 

  1. Green Park Brasserie

This lively, classy restaurant and bar, housed in an old railway station, is independently owned and offers a fantastic choice of freshly prepared dishes. There’s also an exceptional wine list, plus organic coffee. Everything’s made using ingredients from Bath producers where possible. There are two large alfresco terraces, so plenty of room for socially distanced dining. 

Eat Out to Help Out: Yes. 

  1. Bath Pizza Co

This sister restaurant to Green Park Brasserie was named one of the best 16 pizza restaurants in the UK in the National Pizza Awards 2019 – so we’re over the moon that it’s reopened! Every handmade pizza is cooked to perfection in the wood-fired oven, and the casual, alfresco atmosphere makes Bath Pizza Co the ideal option for all occasions. 

Eat Out to Help Out: Yes. 

This is a fabulous part of the city to stay. Choose our spacious, serene Green Park Apartment and you’ll be in the perfect location for both the Green Park Brasserie and Bath Pizza Co. You can make a foodie weekend of it!

  1. Absurd Bird

This Lawrence Street serves comfort food inspired by the Deep American South, from fried chicken (ethically sourced from British farms) to waffles with gravy. You’ll love the vibrant, colourful décor too, which references styles from Louisiana to New Orleans. 

Eat Out to Help Out: Yes, and the offer is also valid for use on Bottomless Wings Wednesday. 

  1. Chez Dominique

If you’re tired of cooking and want to treat yourself to an a la carte treat, head to Chez Dominique on the beautiful Argyle Street. Stay at our Argyle Upon Avon or Pulteney Bridge View apartments and you’ll be practically next door!

This charming restaurant, included in the Good Food Guide 2020, serves local, seasonal French and European food. This means you can have a taste of holiday cuisine even if you can’t head abroad just yet. 

Eat Out to Help Out: Yes. 

All of the restaurants included here are adhering to government COVID-19 guidelines and putting measures in place for social distancing, hand washing and more. This means you can visit and dine with confidence.
