A top pub

The Raven is one of my favourite pubs in Bath. It attracts a diverse clientele and serves excellent food. It has an excellent selection of beers all served in oversized glasses meaning you always get a full pint. The house Raven ale is particularly good.

A place I always call when in Bath. Whatever ales are on they're all in perfect condition every time. Excellent pies and other food available + interesting selection of ciders. Have been coming here now for nearly 40 years & would recommend it to anybody, particularly real ale & cider drinkers.

Well worth calling in for a drink in this friendly local. A good selection of ales always on offer, and while I have never eaten here the food always looks tasty.

Came here as a group of 6 a few days ago for a pie and beers. Fantastic selection of pies and love that you can also choose the gravy that goes best with your choice. Friendly, helpful staff and the food didn't take long to arrive. The pie was delicious when it did come as well! Only one suggestion -... More

We have eaten many times at this small traditional pub in Bath. It is always busy, the main draw being not only their excellent Raven Ale, but the delicious Pieminister pies on offer. They are the mainstay of the menu, and there are generally about a dozen varieties to choose from. Pieminister make a Raven Ale pie specially for the... More

There is not a lot more to say. It is excellent. Great beers from local breweries and fantastic pies. Did I say that they did great pies? The pies are great!

It is a small and cosy pub. Good atmosphere. Known for its pies. The pies are huge so look to share.

Great back street boozer, hidden away but well worth seeking out. Great choice of real ales, my pint of Otter ale was in perfect nick. Simply furnished, with the sound of conversation filling the air, this is a pub to savour. Although I didn't eat, the food looked very appetising. Recommended.
