Best places to eat in Bath
Bath has been a popular destination for centuries. Visitors come for the Roman baths, the fine Georgian architecture and the historic Abbey. Bath is also a great place for a spa break – a tradition it has maintained since Roman times. If you are in Bath for a day or more, you will want to find good places to eat in between sightseeing.
Enjoy a leisurely breakfast or a mid-morning treat at the Bath Bun Tea Shoppe, where you can sample one of Bath’s specialities, the Bath Bun, which was originally designed to help patients suffering from rheumatism. Today, this sweet bread bun liberally sprinkled with sugar is more likely to be enjoyed with a pot of tea or coffee, and unfortunately a cure for rheumatism cannot be guaranteed!
The Raven of Bath is a family-owned free house conveniently situated close to Milsom Street. It has been included in the CAMRA Good Beer Guide every year since 2006. The pub is well-known for its pies, all of which are made from local meat and vegetables. If you’re feeling hungry, opt for a big pie accompanied by chips or mash, or for a smaller appetite, have a slice of pie accompanied by salad. Vegetarians are also catered to, with at least two meat-free pies always on the menu.
Same Same but Different is open all day, but in the evening, the café transforms into a brasserie-style restaurant. It serves contemporary European cuisine as tapas or as a main meal. This eatery first opened in 2002 and was the winner of Best Café in the Bath Good Food Awards 2012. All food is made from scratch on the premises, including the ketchup and mayonnaise. The restaurant exclusively uses suppliers based in Bath and changes their menu regularly to reflect the seasons.
