The Pump Room Restaurant

Pump Room, Stall Street
The Pump Room


Adjacent to the historic Roman Baths, The Pump Room Restaurant is the city’s most magnificent and elegant dining establishment. 
Open for breakfast, lunch, tea and dinner (in July and August), The Pump Room Restaurant serves delicious modern British cuisine by renowned caterers Searcys. 

One of the most popular quintessentially British traditions to enjoy when visiting Bath is afternoon tea. The Pump Room Restaurant provides the perfect backdrop for this sophisticated experience, offering a selection of different teas, coffees or Champagne with delicate sandwiches, pastries and cakes. You’ll also find Bath buns on the menu, a local delicacy that’s not to be missed! Special children's sfternoon tea menus are often available during holidays.

The Pump Room Trio also play in the restaurant daily, providing a wonderful musical accompaniment to your morning coffee or afternoon tea.

You’ll also find a fountain flowing with the warm spa water that the city is founded upon, used to heat the Roman Baths and Pump Room in the winter months. You can taste the water, which contains 43 minerals – beware though, it has quite an extraordinary taste to it!

This beautifully decorated building is not just a restaurant, but very much an attraction too. Built in 1795 The Pump Room was at the very heart of Georgian high society and a very fashionable place to be seen. Find out more about The Pump Room’s history here.
