Bath is a gorgeous city in England famous for its historic Roman Baths, rich heritage, and a major influence on romantic literature, film, and art. Being a popular vacation spot for people from all over the country and the world, Bath has had a lot of amazing hotels and restaurants pop up over the years.

Most of the restaurants in Bath are still quite traditional and stay true to the roots of the West Country cuisine by highlighting British classics, pub grub, and Bath favorites like the Bath buns. There are, however, several restaurants like Opa and Yak Yeti Yak that bring in the diverse flavors of unique cuisines from various cultures.

From relaxing in a wine bar like Corkage and visiting some of the several cosy pubs in the city to kicking back with some craft beer and Mediterranean cuisine, there’s a vast range of dining experiences to be had in Bath for locals and tourists alike.

We also highly recommend visiting the Bath Farmers’ Market at the Green Park Station every Saturday between 9 AM to 1:30 PM for some scrumptious artisanal food. Aside from that, here are the best restaurants in Bath.

The 7 Top Restaurants In Bath

The Pump Room Restaurant

Set in a stunning Georgian building with direct access to the Roman Baths, The Pump Room is inarguably the most iconic restaurant in Bath. Having hosted visionary patrons such as Janes Austen and Charles Dickens, it’s no wonder this is one of the best Bath restaurants. Renowned for its lovely Chandon Afternoon Tea serving the best scones, The Pump Room Restaurant is also known for its lovely Champagne Brunch.

Sally Lunn’s

Sally Lunn’s Historic Eating House & Museum has been an iconic part of Bath since as long ago as 1680. The famous buns at Sally Lunn’s can only be described as a cross between cake, bread, and buns. It is similar to a French brioche and is a must-have when you’re visiting Bath. Sally Lunn’s is located a stone’s throw away from the Bath city center and we highly recommend stopping by. They also have a delicious lunch menu and serve afternoon tea.

The Oven

If you’re craving a good, authentic Neapolitan pizza, look no further than The Oven. Fabrizio Mancinetti has developed a carefully preserved secret recipe for this delicious artisanal wood-fired pizza. You can choose your own toppings ranging from anchovies to unpopular pineapple! They also have a lot of vegetarian options, and even a few cheese-less options if you’re vegan. They have a range of Bianca pizzas which are without tomato sauce, as well. A versatile and thoughtful pizza joint that’s sure to leave you craving for more.

The Circus Restaurant

Serving delicious and fresh modern European food with a menu that constantly changes to highlight seasonal ingredients, The Circus Restaurant is one of the best restaurants in Bath and the UK. Along with delicious food, they also serve artisanal wines by individuals and family wineries that are renowned, and they don’t serve the more popular big-brand wines that most other places do. If you’re planning to catch a show at Theatre Royal, they also offer a pre-theatre set menu service between 5 PM-6 PM which is very convenient.

Opa is one of the most popular establishments to visit in the Bath City Centre. Opa is a restaurant during the day but turns into a very popular nightclub at night. Serving scrumptious Greek food from classic dips like tzatziki and mezze platters to pies and Chicken Souvlaki as well as other grilled meats, you can share a truly hearty meal here with your loved ones. The lovely setting is based on Santorini and you’ll feel transported from the moment you enter, and they also offer outdoor seating. You will have to book a table in advance on their website due to their high demand.

Olive Tree

Located in the Queensberry Hotel, the Olive Tree restaurant screams British pub food like no other place. It is quite an expensive place that borders on fine dining, but the diversity of the jam-packed flavors it offers in food justifies that greatly. They offer several options for vegetarians and vegans, as well. The menu is seasonal as it aims to highlight the local produce available at the time. This is also the only Michelin-starred restaurant in Bath. The focus of this restaurant is to celebrate classic flavors using modern techniques.

Yak Yeti Yak

Serving classic Nepalese food, this hidden gem highlights a lesser-known Asian cuisine in this part of the country. Featuring spicy and flavorful dishes like the famous Momos (which are similar to Asian dumplings) and Pakoras (crispy fried vegetables), you’re sure to leave Yak Yeti Yak with a full stomach and an even fuller heart. They also serve Nepalese beers, which we highly recommend trying with your meal.
