A real gem

Stumbled across this place and was invited in by a friendly barista. The place is tiny, maximum capacity of no more than 20 split across a large dining table, a leather sofa and a couple of smaller tables next to the window. The food is all vegetarian and cooked fresh on the day - from what I... read more

This place you need to see it to believe it, small (tiny ) but perfectly place for amazing get together with friends, often there is live music. The venue is for sharing tables, talking to strangers, sip wine & wish you never have to leave. The staff is fun, clever & very creative. The dishes are modern with a fresh... More

We had breakfast here on what was an all too brief visit to Bath. Choosing to sit outside on a sun blessed Saturday morning my wife and I both enjoyed a very good bowl of porridge topped with apricot compote and me a good americano and my better half a refreshing mint tea. The counter was an array of very... More

Not on the mainstream tourist trails, this independent restaurant has a relaxed style and serves locally-sourced food that is well cooked and presented. Walcot street has lots of character and Sam's Kitchen adds to that.

Last Thursday a group of women friends met for our quarterly lunch in Bath. There were 9 of us and Sam's kitchen did everything they could to accommodate us as they are too small to take bookings. The sun shone and they put a table outside for us. There is a good choice of food - regular items and daily... More

Had an amazing sausage roll with side salads and lentils. It was truly beautiful and not like any sausage roll I've ever had! I love how fresh and tasty everything I tried was. It was truly a delight to eat here. It was quite cramped seating but was fine for a quick lunch.

Despite living in Bath a while now, I only visited this place for the first time a couple of weeks ago and I can tell you Sam's kitchen, that based on this visit alone, you've gained a new regular customer. Everything was flawless; the look and feel of the place is quirky without being too try-hard, the music playing in... More

Occasionally writing reviews on Trip Advisor I normally follow the principle of not writing negatively, preferring to voice concerns direct. This trade is hard enough without unnecessary negativity. But this time I think I want to raise a concern about Sam's Kitchen. This is an attractive looking place with, at first sight, friendly staff and food that looks great. But... More

We visited Sam's Kitchen twice during our stay in Bath and thoroughly enjoyed the food both times. It looked and tasted good. The cafe was busy each time. Toilet access is poor and unsafe, but not sure what can be done about that. Would recommend and will return. Staff very friendly and attentive.
