Dining

Breakfast

This page is dedicated to all you food connoisseur‘s out there, or those of you who just love good tasty grub! Here at The County, Bath we provide the ideal base location to explore and discover some of Bath’s hidden food outlets. While Bath is populated with all of the regular restaurant and bar chains such as Revolution, Giraffe, Gourmet Burger Kitchen and Nando’s, not to mention an abundance of coffee shops such as M&S Café, Levazza and Costa, we wanted to give you the names of some places that will really tickle your taste buds.

The first recommendation has to be Sotto Sotto. Situated just steps away from the Roman Baths, and within walking distance from the hotel, Sotto Sotto is rated number 1 out of 462 restaurants in Bath, according to Trip Advisor (see its reviews here). Its relaxed atmosphere and simplistic yet contemporary Italian cuisine makes it the perfect venue for couples, friends and families. The restaurant itself has just undergone complete refurbishment, and the food has been compared to that found in modern Rome. We advise that bookings in advance are essential.

If you are looking to soak up a little culture, Sally Lunn’s world famous Tea Rooms is not to be missed! The historic building is one of the oldest houses in Bath and is one of the city’s major tourist attractions. Make sure you order one of Sally Lunn’s secret recipe buns, topped with either a sweet or savoury delight!

Tilleys is situated next door to Sally Lunn’s tea rooms. The building was once the refectory for the monks of Bath Abbey and still has two huge original fireplaces. Spread over three rooms on two levels, the restaurant comfortably seats 70 and offers a French-biased but very varied menu which delivers fresh quality food at affordable prices.

The Cosy Club (situated near Debenhams) is one of our personal favourites – the clue is in the name! The quirky dining space offers casual dining in a family friendly environment. With menu options such as Pulled Pork Panini’s and Fish-Finger sandwiches, its industrial-chic meets kitsch Victoriana!

If Indian is your flavour, we highly recommend The Mint Room, on Lower Bristol Road for a mixture of Indian classics with a modern twist!

Finally let’s not forget about those of you with a sweet tooth. Visit Ben’s Cookies in the back streets of the city centre to indulge in a mouth-watering selection of freshly baked cookies!.

Sports & Entertainment

Although the city is famous for its beautiful architecture, iconic sights and fascinating history, all of which have attracted visitors for thousands of years, there are plenty of other things to do in Bath too…

How about taking to the skies and viewing Bath from above with a hot air balloon flight? The Royal Crescent and other such iconic sights look equally as stunning from the sky as they do from ground level!

Adventurous types looking for things to do in Bath can take to the water, a slightly different way to get to know the city. Hire a canal boat, enjoy a tour along the River Avon or just jump straight in at a wild swimming spot!
