We are so lucky to have the gorgeous Lexi, aka Bath Eats, blogger extraordinaire, give us her round up of top 5 fav places in Bath to get cosy…
The King William is actually a new favourite of ours. It’s a modern take on the hearty British pub, with classic dishes taken to a new level through beautiful presentation and an interesting combination of flavours.
Our favourites include the twice baked blue cheese soufflé and the truffle and spinach macaroni cheese balls – they’re to die for.
The Beckford Bottle Shop is a relatively new addition to the Bath scene, opening around 6 months ago. It’s a modern wine shop & tasting room with over 250 wines and incredible tapas-style sharing plates using lots of local British produce. It has a big, open space over two floors which is perfect for virtually any social setting and vaults downstairs which are full of super cosy and intimate tables for larger dinner parties and comfortable sofas and coffee tables ideal for relaxed, casual meals in small groups.
Our favourites include the ox cheek, the smoked cod’s roe and the chocolate mousse with almond brittle.
The Acorn Restaurant is a cosy, modern and award-winning bistro specialising in vegan food. They put fruits, vegetables and legumes in the spotlight, creating gorgeous modern dishes using delicious, high quality plant ingredients. Everything they create is gorgeous and has so many different texture and flavour elements on one plate – a culinary delight!
Our favourites include the butternut squash terrine with pine nut risotto and the old donkey carrots.
This is another cosy pub to venture into when it’s cold outside. Excitingly, it had a menu makeover last year by its new Head Chef, marrying classic pub favourites with oriental-inspired dishes. We had an incredible seared beef rump on papaya salad & penang curry but unfortunately, they don’t do it anymore (please bring it back)!
Our favourites also included the fish and chips and their classic burger – great staples to warm you up on a cold winters day.
Comptoir + Cuisine is another newish addition to Bath’s foodie scene which is a combination of a French concept store and bistro. On your right, hidden behind a wall is a flight of stairs that will take you to Comptoir + Cuisine’s very own speakeasy named Champagne + Fromage. It’s a super cosy champagne bar with great different charcuterie and cheese boards for you to order. It’s dimly lit and full of plush sofas for you to snuggle on.
Our favourites include the bread board with tapenades (the artichoke one in particular) and the charcuterie board (very high quality).
