Pre rugby visit. Perfectly located for an easy walk to the ground, but a few extra steps away enough that you can drink, eat and chat without mass numbers. Clearly has had a injection of life as this establishment wasn't particularly known for its decor and hospitality in my years around Bath - but this has clearly changed.
The welcome in was very friendly indeed. Was almost like an invitation to make yourself at home. Really positive, and will venture back for an ale again I'm very sure.
Football on televisions in one side of the pub and a lovely little walled garden that has been kept really well - although small, pretty much options for all tastes.
Sadly, for us, the food was a bit of a let down. But hoping it was simply a blip. The cost of the meals were reasonable but the basket meals (£5.95) that some of my family had were so oily, that you got an after taste very quickly. This put you off finishing them. Pies appeared to be bought in not home made, tasty but a bit dry sadly. The mash lacked seasoning and needed the gravy and to have a spoon full of peas with the meal cost extra.
On the grounds of rating as a restaurant, it's only average on this visit. But worth a try again as the welcome, location and ale were all very good.
