Top 10 restaurants in Bath, United Kingdom (UK)

November 2, 2017 Elouise Mccaul

Known for its restorative wonders, Bath was once the home of Jane Austen. Sure, you could attempt to conjure up this elegant city by reading Pride and Prejudice in your tub, but as Bath has a lot more history than your bathroom (we assume, anyway) you'd be missing out. A stroll through Bath is like visiting an open-air museum, with roughly 5,000 buildings in the city drawing notice for their architectural merit. After your stroll, soak in the natural hot waters of the Thermae Bath Spa, once a favorite of the Celts and Romans.

I took my grandsons to the theatre and, as a treat, we had lunch at The Firehouse. From the moment we went in and were greeted with such warmth and a friendly welcome, this set it apart from the more pedestrian establishments. The care taken...MoreThank You for your lovely review, You have captured the spirit of our little restaurant. We hope we will see you soon . Richard and the Firehouse Team !!

The Circus Restaurant

Small, busy, much admired, family-run restaurant; serving seasonal, locally sourced, freshly cooked food; charming and welcoming staff; sensible and honest prices. Set in a fine Georgian house in Bath's most beautiful position - between The Circus and The Royal Crescent. Voted number 4 in the United Kingdom by The Times "Twenty secret restaurants that foodies love". Bookings advised.

I can't fault this restaurant. The food was incredible and the service was brilliant. We struggled to get a booking a couple for days in advance, so booked a later reservation, but when we called on the day they managed to fit us in earlier...MoreThank you very much for your positive review of The Circus Restaurant. We really value it and look forward to seeing you again

Menu Gordon Jones

Menu Gordon Jones is all about amazing food, with an element of surprise. All Chef's menus are seasonal, locally sourced and offer real value for money. To really tickle your taste buds try our dishes, all served by our friendly staff in a funky setting.

Reviewed By Andrewjohnbond - Marlborough, United Kingdom

From the location and choice of the building, the decor, the tableware and especially the food, this tiny restaurant defies all expectation.
Each course features hugely imaginative and perfectly executed flavour combinations. The degree of experimentation is obvious, but what really comes across is how well rehearsed it all is. These dishes have clearly been developed over many iterations.
Service is very well paced - brisk but relaxed and never rushed.
Wine is perfectly paired, unusual and well researched.
At £50, lunch is very very good value for money. We’ve eaten in many places costing twice as much and not delivering half of the experience of this.
Best restaurant of the year by some margin.

Sotto Sotto

BOOKING IS STRONGLY RECOMMENDED. We are closed from 1st-14th August, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, Easter Sunday & from 1st-14th January. Situated just a few steps away from the Roman Baths, our attractive and atmospheric restaurant is located in a charming candle lit historical cellar of natural Bath stone with vaulted ceilings throughout, and resembles the cavernous cellars of an Italian grotto.The main characteristic of our cuisine is its simplicity. We rely on the quality of our ingredients rather than on elaborate preparation.We also like to offer traditional Italian dishes with a contemporary twist because we strongly believe in those 'Sapori' (flavours).With our finest ingredients coming from Italy, and all of our fresh vegetables, seafood and meats sourced locally, we are able to ensure high quality dining that will exceed your expectations.

I took 2 friends to dinner In Sotto Sotto on 26 March. Booking was easy and they confirmed by phone the day before - nice touch! The initial welcome was warm and genuine, wine and food were very good (Bath prices, but London standards), and table service was outstanding. Book early. Well worth a visit!

We booked lunch at Claytons kitchen for my Mother, her 4 daughters and her Granddaughter (so table for 6) for Mothers Day. Booking through the website was easy and quick and despite arriving 15 minutes early, our table was already ready.
The restaurant is small but lovely and the food was much, much better than we expected. We thought it would be good, based on the reviews - but everything (even the side dishes) was exceptional. I had the goats cheese salad and typically, you might expect small crumbly bits of goats cheese with the roasted butternut squash - You got two MASSIVE goats cheese wheels which was really tasty and very filling. The sweet potato fries were also really well done.
Everyone else enjoyed their meals as well and the waitress feigned interest in my Nieces 'My Little Pony' - A nice touch, considering some restaurants aren't too keen on small children.
Absolutely brilliant food and we'd certainly look to come back again.

Barton Street Wine Bar

Set in the heart of Bath but at the same time slightly off the beaten track. Barton Street Wine Bar is the perfect place to chill out with a glass/bottle of wine with a cheese & charcuturie board which many agree is the best in the city. We also stock a carefully selected range of gins and whiskies and have craft beer on tap. Music is seen as an essential part of the experience we offer so as well as the finest soul, blues and jazz played through our music system Friday and Saturday nights from 8pm you can find jazz session pianists playing our piano. We're open from 5pm Monday to Saturday. closing can be anytime up to 2am - just depends on what's happening that particular night! Come and pay us a visit.
