The Bathwick Boatman

Diners have two options when travelling to the Bathwick Boatman. They can either arrive at the riverside restaurant by boat, or by walking through a (mildly less glamorous) car park. But however you get there, this is a dining experience not to be missed. Run by husband-and-wife team Ben and Rosy, The Bathwick Boatman offers affordable and exquisite European cuisine. When weather allows, there are also beautiful views of the river Avon.

Thai Basil

If great food, a warm atmosphere and a touch of class are what you’re after, look no further than Thai Basil. It doesn’t just serve the best Thai food in Bath, it’s also reasonably priced, dishes starting at £9. The Pla Makaam, a stir-fried fillet of fish with a tasty tamarind sauce comes highly recommended. Delicious!

La Perla 

Indulge us for a second and imagine if Alice in Wonderland had grown up, stepped away from the looking glass and opened a tapas bar. Now you’re close to La Pearla, where the atmosphere is almost as good as the food.  Tucked away in the basement of a beautiful three-storey building in central Bath, la Perla features a menu that changes on a daily basis. There’s only one drawback to this award-winning restaurant - it’s so popular that booking is recommended.

Green Rocket Cafe

Whether you’re a veggie looking for a dining experience that goes beyond replacing the meat option with a hunk of cheese, or in the mood for something different, then the Green Rocket Cafe is the place for you. This award-winning independent cafe uses locally-sourced produce and the menu has vegan and gluten-free options. We recommend trying the Laska Lemak, a coconut soup made with Tofu and seasonal vegetables or if you’re popping in for breakfast, the homemade granola is delicious. Be warned, you’ll need to book ahead if you’re going for dinner, especially on weekends.

Green Park Brasserie 

Green Park BrasserieGreen Park Brasserie is based in an old Victorian station

The Green Park Brasserie is based in what used to be the booking office of a restored Victorian Station. With an emphasis on local produce (we’re talking Hinton Estate Beef and Somerset Chickens), this is the perfect choice for foodies looking for top-notch English cuisine in splendid surroundings. The emphasis here isn’t on speed of service so, as with catching a train, leave yourself with plenty of time if you have an after-dinner arrangement.

Blue Quails Deli

Breakfast is the new lunch. Don’t believe us? Just wait until you try the food at the Blue Quails Deli. The restaurant is run by husband-and-wife team Peter and Glenda Botes, who moved to Bath two years ago to retire from their careers in the hospitality business - before spotting an empty shop and deciding to open the deli. We recommend the flapjacks.

Turtle Bay

Turtle Bay is inspired by beach shacks and street hawkers in the Carribean and offers delicious and authentic dishes that are perfect to share over drinks with friends. The compact menu will leave you salivating as your struggle to decide between chilli fried squid, pulled jerk pork, saltfish patties or Jamaican fried bait – why not just order them all! Turtle Bay offers something a bit different to the usual restaurants in Bath and its laid back atmosphere and extensive cocktail menu will not leave you disappointed.

Sotto Sotto

We’ll be honest; Sotto Sotto is not the place to take someone that you only want to be friends with. This gem of a restaurant is ideal if you’re trying to impress someone special - plus, it’s the perfect dining destination after a visit to Bath’s Spas, which are just a stone’s throw away. Oh, and did we mention Sotto Sotto was recently named the best Italian restaurant in Bath at the Bath Good Food Awards?
