This autumn, Bath’s fantastic food and drink scene is being celebrated with the return of The Great Bath Feast. The event kicked off in September with a bustling Milsom Street market, with foodie events taking place around the city centre throughout October.

Brought to you by the Bath BID and The Great Bath Feast, the Bath Bites Trail showcases many of the unmissable dishes that the city’s food and drink businesses have to offer. From local specialities to chef’s favourites, you’ll find plenty of tasty treats on the Bath Bites Trail – see how many you can try!

Local Specialities

Discover Bath’s culinary history by dining on some of the city’s local specialities. Try the world-famous Sally Lunn bun, a light, brioche-style bun, in one of Bath’s oldest houses, or head to the Bath Bun Tea Shoppe for a taste of the city’s other well-known sweet treat.

Made from the lower part of a pig’s cheeks, one of the only places you can try the traditional Bath Chaps is at the Garrick’s Head – their take on the Bath classic is served with Granny Smith puree and fresh apple.

Light Bites

One of the best ways to take advantage of the Bath Bites Trail is to select your ideal meal and go on a ‘restaurant crawl’ around the city.

Begin your Great Bath Feast with one of the trail’s delicious starters and light bites. Seafood fans can choose from diver-caught scallops from The Scallop Shell, oysters at Portofino Oyster Bar and Fish Restaurant, and salt and pepper squid at Giggling Squid Bath.

Try jamon-wrapped sweet dates at Pintxo, tuck into taco dosa at Bandook Kitchen, opt for a hopper at the Coconut Tree Bath, or devour a cheesy garlic bread at The Bath Stable.
