The Garricks Head

7-8 St John's Place, BATH, BA1 1ET

Once the home of Beau Nash, the celebrated dandy who put the spa city on the map, The Garricks Head is named after 18th-century theatrical powerhouse David Garrick, and is adjacent to the Theatre Royal, for whose customers it provides pre-show dining facilities. The bar has a lot to commend it: a selection of natural wines from Europe, four real ales, Somerset ciders, and the largest selection of single malt whiskies in Bath. The food, locally sourced as far as possible, includes pub classics such as steak and chips, and a ploughman's, while the carte features pork rillettes and pickled vegetables; a rabbit dish of loin and cottage pie with creamed leek purée and purple sprouting broccoli; and sticky toffee pudding with double cream.
