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 or pie of the day, while the carte features wood pigeon with compressed fennel, carrot and pomegranate; poached hake with cavolo nero; artichoke risotto with parmesan crisp and truffle oil; and rhubarb and ginger fool or lemon posset to finish.
