Visited here on a busy Saturday evening, was able to get a table and enjoy a couple of really nice ales. On this occasion a group of Welshmen came in and decided to enjoy themselves with a sing song, it certainly added to the atmosphere...More

A group of friends booked to eat at The Salamander during a Christmas shopping trip to bath. The food was all excellent and the service was also great. We sat upstairs which was lovely and relaxed, and downstairs the bar had a lovely atmosphere.

A decent sized pub serving some excellent ales including most if not all of the Bath Ales range. Plenty of places to sit or stand and excellent service.

Great atmosphere downstairs with a lovely selection of wine & beers and fab staff. The restaurant upstairs was freezing cold and the food average (particularly the gravy which lacked flavour). It's a real shame the food let's the place down.

It's not very often I say this but the Sunday roast left a great taste in my mouth. I had the roast chicken which came with Sage and Onion stuffing, veggies and potatoes, gravy. All done well. I also like the cosy dining room upstairs...More

Hi the table we had was upstairs. I'm unsure if there was a lift. It is spread across a few levels. I hope you enjoy your visit.

The Salamander is great city-centre pub. 'The Sally' serves good food and a fine choice of beers from Bath Ales and beyond, and welcomes a friendly, eclectic audience. It's small, it's snug but it's oh so special! The Salamander is tucked neatly away just off Queen Square in the heart of the Georgian city of Bath. Historically a 'steak and chop house', it now consists of a well-stocked bar on the ground floor and an impressive dining room complete with galley kitchen upstairs. Using the finest produce from local suppliers, 'The Sally' is renowned for its imaginative and varied menu, available both downstairs in the bar and upstairs.
