“The Talk of the Town” – Sunday Mail
“Hall & Woodhouse” a spectacular pub restaurant from the 235 year old, Dorset brewers of Badger ales. Located in the heart of Bath at 1 Old King Street – a former auction house – the venue is simply stunning and was judged by the Sunday Mail to be one of the 6 must-see venues when visiting Bath – they described it as “the talk of the town”. A spiralling staircase leads upward from the ground floor Bar, to the first floor Dining Room and onto the Roof Terrace bar (unique in Bath).
The different areas, ranged over four floors, evoke a country home and provide links back to the brewery in Blandford Forum, from the copper bar, potting shed, pantry and common room on the ground floor to the dining room and then roof terrace bar above.
Hall & Woodhouse caters for all eating and drinking occasions from breakfast, brunch, lunch, coffee and cakes to early and late dinners - with an emphasis on British products, attention to detail and a touch of theatre. The cuisine is straightforward and familiar not elaborate and experimental - a British interpretation of the bistro and Brasserie concept – a large every-day eating house not an elaborate restaurant.
