Good old pub, with pool table, was the place to go when i was young. Plenty of other pubs around bath... but they are more wine bars, all depends on what you want from a pub, it maybe your cup of beer?

If I'd reviewed the Assembly only a month or so ago I would have given it 4 or 5 stars. But it seems that the Assembly has been refurbished recently...only not in a good way! The pub has lost it's character and cosiness...the decor and lighting is WAY too bright...which makes it feel soulless....a bit like a pub chain, not... More

I ducked in here for a pint while my wife toured the Fashion Museum around the corner. A friendly bar with a good bartender. Good for games and socializing.

Had a couple of beers here whilst watching the Sunday football on their big screens. Seemed like a good pub for beers and sports.

We had some great Thai food. I am not normally a fan of Thai food but this was very really good and left me wanting more. Fully recommend a visit

Popped in here on the way back to our friends flat. Simple pub. Nice barman who recommended a local beer. Nice point and some good meat snacks available. Well worth a visit if passing.

Have been here twice for the excellent thai food. It is a good pub as well. Better food than the other thai places in Bath and cheaper. A pint of Budvar on draft went down well with the food.

Limited choice of beers and real ales, average food; setting is a typical English simple pub. If you come here for the sport and there's a good atmosphere then great. But there are far nicer places to water yourself in Bath.

Great pub, frequented by friendly locals and visitors. Large selection of real ale and unusual ciders. Two attentive barmaids whose customer service was spot on, even letting us sample the ales and cider. Plenty of tvs should you wish to watch the sport. Lovely thai food available served up by a friendly guy. Recommended.

Friendly reception, good ale and nice atmosphere. The sport was on the big screen when we visited but it didn't dominate the whole bar. It seemed to have quite a good local following as well as visitors like us just dropping in, and all were made welcome. Nice to find a friendly pub so centrally. The bar menu had Thai... More
