Apparently Central Bar is under new ownership, so some of the discount deals may not be available, so I would recommend giving them a call just to check. Also the menu has changed-it's much shorter.
Pleasant downstairs (there are several floors but didn't venture) and the bar is laid out in a high stool 'Wetherspoons' bit at the entrance followed by a dining area which gives over to a 'Starbucks' area-leather settees basically. So the ground floor has good blend to it which is pleasant to the eye with a bar and a coffee machine.
The drinks aren't expensive and they also do cocktails, the food is reasonable (but nothing to get excited about) we had the steak sandwich at £7.95 (fancy with chips and salad), but there again this ain't fine dining, this is £12.00 for a main and a pint. With a discount card it came to about £7.50. Nice touch at the end though-we had a strawberry and chocolate freebie little dessert-nice touch!
We went on a Sunday afternoon (SHE wanted to do Xmas shopping) and the place was steady but not busy. But Bath was rammed with tourists (Bristolians, Spanish and Welsh strangely). So where are they going wrong? Tripadvisor comments are up and down. So I guess it must be down to staffing levels in the evening and crap DJs.
I must admit this is not a place that I would frequent on an evening but in the daytime, for a quiet meal it's worth a punt. Bath is always expensive but the plus side to this place is that a pint kicks in at under £4.00, the food is reasonable and it's handy.
Downers-hence 3.5 and not 4.
They can't cope with 'busy times'. Menu is small but just take it to the next level (hot is good -warm is not good. Salad-make it exciting-I don't get limp lettuce).
As a tourist town Bath has a huge number of eateries for its size and so competition is extremely fierce. I hope this place can develop and survive.
