Foodie heaven in Bath: a round-up of the city’s top eateries

12th October 2015

Bath has many attractions, from its Roman Baths and Georgian architecture to its many festivals and cultural events. However, it is also known for its incredible selection of world-class food and drink.

If you’ve booked into Bath holiday rentals in the next few months, here are 10 of the best eateries to add to your must-visit list:

  1. Sotto Sotto. Regularly voted the number one restaurant in Bath, Sotto Sotto is a unique establishment specialising in simple, classic Italian cuisine made with the very best quality ingredients. It’s all served in the most fantastic setting too, as the restaurant is located in candlelit vaulted cellars with bare stone walls and bags of atmosphere.
  2. King William Pub and Dining Rooms. If you’re looking for a cosy Sunday lunch that is cooked to perfection, look no further than the King William on the corner of London Road – boasting super-tender meat, a varied and eclectic wine list and a great vibe.
  3. Demuths Restaurant. This modern, stylish eatery is a mecca for Bath’s vegetarians, and also prompts carnivores to declare “I just didn’t miss the meat”. Demuths specialises in vegetarian fine dining that tastes amazing and looks pretty on the plate too.
  4. The Bath Priory. If you’d like a taste of charming, historic Bath, visit The Bath Priory for Michelin-starred food served in a beautiful old-fashioned hotel with a wonderfully relaxed attitude. When the sun shines, you can even dine on the pretty sun terrace.
  5. Yak Yeti Yak. If you want to eat where the locals eat, put some effort into finding this hidden gem of a Nepalese restaurant with its airy dining room and wholesome, great value dishes that smell just incredible.
  6. Sam’s Kitchen. A low-key eatery with great coffee and cakes, as well as Sunday brunch and a signature dish of roasted meat and singingly fresh salad, Sam’s Kitchen is one of the hottest lunch spots in town.
  7. An elegant restaurant serving classic French dishes made with local ingredients, Casanis is found behind the Assembly Rooms, one of the key locations on any Jane Austen tour of Bath.
  8. White Hart Inn. If you’d like to get away from the city centre for a while and enjoy gastropub dining with a garden (and screens for headline sporting events), visit the White Hart Inn on Widcombe Hill for great value, delicious pub grub.
  9. Clayton’s Kitchen at The Porter. Regularly at the top of TripAdvisor’s top 10 list of places to eat in Bath, Clayton’s Kitchen has earned its fabulous reputation. Known for its Michelin star food, afternoon tea and perfectly matched wines, Clayton’s Kitchen also has the added advantage of nestling inside a stylishly designed four-storey Georgian townhouse.
  10. The Raven. Those with a craving for a perfectly made traditional pie should head to The Raven, which is famous for its nine different homemade pie flavours, as well as top quality beer to wash it all down with.
