Modern British cooking and well-kept local ales

At a glance

AA Pick of the Pubs
Bar menu
Restaurant menu

A short stroll from the city centre on a busy main road, this unassuming Bath stone building offers a happy mix of destination dining inn and locals' pub. In the cosy snug and traditional bar, real ale buffs will generally find a regular Palmers ale, supplemented by guest beers from local microbreweries such as Stonehenge, Milk Street and Yeovil. The kitchen creates traditional dishes, with a contemporary twist, from locally produced seasonal ingredients. A winter dinner menu offers the likes of a starter of curried parsnip soup and Bertinet; or chicken and black pudding terrine, Waldorf salad and rosemary focaccia then a main course of duck breast, lentils, black cabbage, smoked prune sauce; or slow-cooked pork belly, white beans, sage pesto, chicory and cider syrup. Rhubarb sponge and stem ginger ice cream is one highly comforting end to an evening, matched by a carefully chosen wine list.
