The Angelfish Restaurant

About

If you decide you’d like to escape city life for a while, you can easily find The Angelfish Restaurant on the A36 out of Bath, below Brassknocker Hill. Situated next to the restored Somerset Coal Canal, with easy access and a large car park, the restaurant enjoys panoramic views across the Limpley Stoke Valley. In this historic setting, you can watch the narrowboats while enjoying your food.

Choose to sit outside on the terrace, or inside where the vibe is more informal. The whole restaurant is surrounded by glass, allowing a clear view and making the atmosphere feel light, fresh and warm – even on a winter’s day.

Chef and owners Lionel and Victoria excel in their partnership, bringing their wealth of world-travelled experience to this lovely spot. The choice of menus is informal, enticing and varied. The fixed options menu ranges from snacks and freshly cooked baguettes with unusual fillings, to more substantial meals and a specials board that changes daily. There is a selection of homemade desserts, cakes and ice creams.

The Angelfish caters for everyone, such as families on a day out, holidaymakers, visitors to the site, ramblers, cyclists, boaters, dog owners, coach parties and many private functions. Although not regularly open every evening, they do open for private functions of 25 or more where you are able to have the whole restaurant to yourselves. 

There is magic here for everyone, from cream tea with organic clotted cream to a cappuccino coffee break, ‘let’s do lunch’ occasion or a private party. And, if you like what you’ve tried, you can book The Angelfish's outside catering company Gourmet Delicious for your wedding, business event or birthday celebration.
