Bath is a handsome city at any time of year but in autumn it positively glows. Great food and drink is just one of many reasons to visit this golden Georgian gem. This is a city that attracts ambitious young chefs, drawn not just by the beauty of the place and the countryside that surrounds it, but by the provenance of the south-west. Typically, chefs work hand in hand with their suppliers to create menus that are both seasonal and locally sourced.
So for 9 days at the beginning of October, expect game and big wines; warming root veg and pumpkin soup; traditional puddings like apple and blackberry crumble; hearty pasta dishes. From beautifully sweet figs and crisp apples to earthy wild mushrooms and full-flavoured lamb and beef, October boasts a bumper crop of seasonal ingredients. This is soul food, so celebrate October’s rich bounty and make it your Great Bath Feast.
New for 2016 is the Bath Bites Food & Drink Fair in Abbey Churchyard, where a number of local producers will bring their delicious food and drink to you. From a vintage horse box selling locally roasted coffee, to Persian kebabs, modern southern Indian dishes and even gourmet hot dogs, you'll certainly have your fill of good quality food.
