The city of Bath is renowned for its diverse and fabulous restaurant and bar scene, which offer British favourites, as well as lots of tastes from around the world. If your bride-to-be loves good food and drink, get a taste of Bath with a foodie-themed hen party in the city. 

Day One 


Start by celebrating in true coastal island style at The Coconut Tree, where you can savour Sri Lankan-style bottomless bridal brunch deals in the restaurant's vibrant but laid-back setting. Enjoy a two and a half hour Hen Party Feast including unlimited Prosecco and selection of flavourful sharing plates, with the option to add your choice of two of the restaurant's signature 'Cocotails' - St. Colombo, Beach Boy and Rio Rumble. The bride-to-be and one of her hens can even have a go at making their own Cocotail! 

After brunch, take a bite out of Bath’s foodie scene by sampling the many delicious local delicacies. An artisan food and drink tour with Savouring Bath is a great place to start. Stroll through Bath’s picturesque streets and alleyways and stop by ancient pubs, award-winning coffee shops, breweries and bakeries.

You’ll get to meet with owners, makers and producers and really sink your teeth into the flavour of Bath. You’ll get to sip the famous spring water, tuck into the Sally Lunn bun (whose recipe is top secret), and try the authentic street food, craft beers and ales. 

Or maybe you'll want to experience a luxurious afternoon tea in one of Bath's tearooms or cafes? Choose from a classic option at one of the city's luxury hotels, an Instagrammable cream tea in front of the floral wall at Sweet Little Things, or a Japanese-style afternoon tea at Robun.

End the evening with a scoop (or two!) of Bath’s best gelato from the multi award-winning Swoon. The gelato is all made on site with the finest ingredients, many sourced locally like the organic milk from Bruton Dairy in Somerset. The pistachio is from Bronte in Sicily, their hazelnuts from a farm which has been in the same family for four generations.
