Situated in the middle of Bath city centre, we dived in here for a quick lunch. It has a lovely cosy atmosphere and very friendly service. It serves classic pub food - good quality and big portions. Would definitely go back.

We called in here because someone on the way out recommended it. It's a small old atmospheric pub, friendly staff, good real ales ( i'm not a beer drinker, but my husband said it was the best he had tasted ) & good pub food.

A nice warm cosy pub on a cold night. Dark panelled rooms and good ales, quiet but suited our needs.

When food for other customers was being taken out they made to take food off... More

Stopped off for a bite to eat. Decided to go for something not eaten here before. Great quality. Love the new square plates.

Called in for a drink on the way to find somewhere to eat on our 1st night in Bath. The barman was very friendly & attentive. We had a look at the menu whilst waiting for a Guinness, couldn't believe how reasonable the prices were & decided to stay to eat. We had 2 starters, 2 main courses & 5... More
