What can I say. Its not fancy, its not all singing and dancing, it doesnt have the sauce drizzled in a squiggly line next to half a teaspoon of sweet potato mash. Its Pub Grub, done properly. I always think of this place as an eating destination if I am in Bath shopping. The portions are great. The Baguettes are... More

Found by chance wandering around Bath and nipped in to escape a summer shower. Attentive service, nice pint and classic pub surroundings, very enjoyable!

We found this down a little side street. Lovely hanging baskets and very quirky. Inside a typical old English pub. Serving wonderful pub grub, real ales, attentive service and the atmosphere was wonderful. Try it and hopefully you'll enjoy it as much as we did.

The environment is pub like and we had a table overlooking the street which was nice. The pastas (Bolognese and broccoli / cheese) were tasty. Skip the nachos. Service was attentive. The manager(?) could put a smile on her face, she was a bit brusk.

We came across Sam Wellers looking on Tripadvisor for a pub showing the football game and serving food. The reviews were great so went for it. The manager demonstrated to be the rudest I have ever came across, ruining the otherwise friendly atmosphere, showing a terrible attitude whenever she could. All the food served was tasteless (we tried several plates).... More

Sam Wellers looks great and feels traditional but its staff and food (depending on what you get) are awful! Upon entering we were bluntly asked if we were eating and upon answering yes we were coldly directed to a table by someone that looked to be angry at our arrival. After asking for my meat medium to well-done it come... More

Stumbled across this place whilst looking for somewhere to eat one evening whilst staying in Bath, not familiar with the area, the menu looked tempting and reasonably priced so we gave it a go. Bar staff couldn't have been friendlier very helpful and welcoming, we opted for a sharing platter and whitebait and food came out promptly was piping hot... More

One of the best, if not THE best Sheperds pie in the UK, simple, rustic, juicy, flavourfull, awesome. Hesitate not, do what must be done... eat Sheperds Pie

Popped in for lunch, we wanted something traditional and simple. Staff were super friendly and nice. We had local lager and burgers. Food arrived quickly and tbh it was the best burger we've eaten in a long long time. Good size portions, reasonably priced - we paid 26 quid in total. Clean, pleasant, will definitely come back!
