“Go after dusk”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 20, 2012

Great place for an evening drink, located opposite the Baths and Pump Room, Most of the tourists have gone by then, and you can enjoy the atmosphere and the food in peace

Just what we were looking for - really nice place with excellent breakfast, fast, efficient and very friendly service, right by the abbey and opposite the Pump Room. We will definitely be back!

“Watch the world go by”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2012

This establishment sits directly opposite the entrance to the Roman Baths and Bath Abbey with it's tables and chairs spilling out onto the square defined by these buildings.On sunny days it is a joy to sit,with a nice dry white wine,and watch the world go by whilst being serenaded by one of the many high quality buskers who perform in the square.Usually gentle guitarists or young ladies with angelic voices entertain you but sometimes the tranquility is broken by a parade of zombies and the living dead or students as they as sometimes known!!!Back to the kitchen...the food is very good especially the pastries,the staff very friendly and the prices fine.

“Turn off the juke box. Luverly food.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2012

We had enjoyed a splendid lunch in The Pump Room the day before and they gave us a discount voucher for their sister restaurant, the Roman Baths Kitchen. So, we decided to give it a try and see if our unbroken string of culinary luck would hold out in Bath for yet another day. It did.
The Roman Baths Kitchen is accessible from the Abbey and Roman Baths courtyard - the Abbey churchyard, and extends right through to Cheap Street on the other side. We had been pigging out a little due to the fantastic food we had found over the last couple of days and promised ourselves a light lunch. As we entered the yard, there was a pleasant duo busking Spanish influenced guitar and vocal numbers, the sound of which, filtered right through the ‘Kitchen’ to the Cheap Street side, where we had a window seat. I had lightly spiced, soft, slow cooked lamb on a char-grilled flat-bread that was just burned enough to add a complimentary bitterness to the sweet lamb. Just-picked coriander and mint lifted the dish with zing and aroma. Elaine had Goat’s cheese on toasted sourdough with all the trimmings, which, judging by the lull in conversation for the duration, was beautiful.
With lunch easing down, and feeling very relaxed with the beautiful notes of the Spanish guitar floating in from the yard . . . the flipping jukebox came on! So, we had lovely sounds coming in from the door and awful eurodribble bleating and popping from a speaker over our heads. It was lucky that we had finished and we hurriedly paid the bill and escaped the audio confusion. The only other niggle is, that, the young ladies’ serving didn’t seem all that interested. A couple of points off, then, for atmosphere and hosting because in such a world-prominent site, the service should be first-class, as we found everywhere else on the trip. We didn’t tip, which is unusual for us. I think the jukebox may have been on a timer, because no one in their right mind would have turned it on, on purpose, with the delightful live music playing, and at such a bizarre time in the afternoon.
Good food in one of many world class locations in the City. Go there. If the jukebox comes on – tell them to turn it off. If you get an attentive waitress, tip her.
