We, unfortunately, were there the same day as the England/Australia match. We arrived early and were able to order food (well most of us) but he was some what disgruntled that 10 of us arrived and wanted to eat (how dare we bring him custom). The final member of my party arrived and was told she couldn't order food despite... More

Oh dear, but what a match! We went to the Assembly Inn Sports Bar to watch the England v Australia international. This was our first visit and we weren't sure what to expect. Kick off was at 14.30. We arrived at 13.15 hoping to enjoy a little lunch before the game. On arrival the pub was busy and the single... More

ENTITLED "Common sense these days? You just cant win can you" In response to the 'Take your own sandwiches' and 'Dont expect decent customer service' both written about the same day at the same time, just before England v Australia rugby. The Assembly Inn is a very popular rugby pub. We are and always expect to be packed out to... More

Perhaps it's an age thing, but every time we have visited this pub we find the music much too loud and intrusive. After just one drink we have to leave which is a shame as the beer is good and the menu, though basic pub grub, could be interesting. Maybe some ear plugs next time?!

Let down by lukewarm soft drinks and one rather grumpy member of bar staff. However saved vy other staff who were far more attentive and the food served was very good

Food looked good as well. The local Abbey beers were good and my US friend seemed to enjoy them. It was a lovely day so we spilled out onto the pavement. Nice.

Although this pub is a little off the city centre that has advantages when it comes to a Saturday when Bath Rugby are playing at home. Most city centre pubs will be full to bursting and although the Assembly was full it was not a squeeze. Beer from a local brewery was an added bonus. Plenty of screens so you... More

An interesting refurbished pub that has not been turned into a modern clone; it seems to be a quirky bar that still acts as a pub for locals, probably normals rather than Hooray Henrys and Harriets despite being at the side of the Assembly Rooms. It makes no pretence of being a gastro pub but serves a limited range of... More

We've been visiting The Assembly ever since it re-opened, whenever we are in Bath (about 3 times a year). It has gone through various stages of updating etc, and we do like the current style/decor. However, it's not the friendliest of places at times - the staff are polite but not particularly welcoming, and the music is so loud it's... More
