Firehouse Rotisserie

Best Of IgoUgo

Restaurant | "Disappointing"

Quote:
The Firehouse Rotisserie bills itself as a Californian restaurant and is based in central Bath (there is also a branch in Bristol) and it's dishes are mainly grills and brick fired pizzas. We ate there one Monday lunchtime, arriving at about 12.30pm, which was about right as it got quite a bit busier after that. We sat on the ground floor but it looks like they have tables upstairs if this was full. The decor is simple, but nicely furnishes with wooden tables and chairs. Our waitress gave us the food and wine menus, there were no other drinks menus, so we were unsure what other drinks there were so just went with the usual soft drinks. I like interesting juices and home-made lemonades but there di...Read More

Looking for somewhere to stay for a weekend trip to Bath we perused the internet. Ideally we wanted somewhere centrally located; it needed to be reasonably priced too, so we searched for Bed & Breakfast type places. We knew that at weekends most of these places have a two night minimum stay and I had booked my last day of annual leave accordingly. However our first two choices were already full that weekend, but one of them recommended this place – Walton’s Guest House. We couldn’t book online so telephoned and sent a cheque as a deposit. You can park on the street outside between 6pm and 8am but otherwise we needed to park in the Long Stay Car Park behind it – this cost £5 for 4 h...Read More

Salathai Thai Restaurant

Best Of IgoUgo

Restaurant | "Sublime Thai at Salathai"

Quote:
On our first night in Bath we spotted a nice restaurant (Demuths) by the Abbey area, but it was fully booked for that night (Saturday) and concerned that we could struggle to find a restaurant for later that evening we consulted our restaurant map (given to us by the B & B we were staying in) and spotted a number of Thai restaurants around the corner in Pierrepont Street. We picked Salathai over Mai Thai opposite as their menu seemed clearer and we preferred the more contemporary décor. They were full when we enquired as they had a large party in but agreed to squeeze us in at 7.30pm that evening. Upon arrival the waitress checked our booking and seated us at a table for two nearby....Read More

All Bar One

Best Of IgoUgo

Restaurant | "Food and Drink, Day or Night"

Quote:
All Bar One is a bar chain across the UK, they are increasingly concentrating on food and I experienced the Bath branch one Sunday lunchtime. Although I would have thought it a peak time the bar wasn't full and there were quite a few free tables. As it is a bar there were no children, it has an Over 21s policy. Unlike most British bars it has waiter service as opposed to just going to the bar (although I saw some people going to the bar just for drinks orders) and the chap serving us was very helpful and obliging informing us of a few options on the menu that were unavailable, as well as explaining the specials. The décor is mainly heavy wooden tables and wooden chairs, some with padded seats. Th...Read More

Demuths

Best Of IgoUgo

Restaurant | "Delicious Demuths"

Quote:
Demuths has been established in Bath for over 20 years. Owned and run by Rachel Demuth, who has also published a number of vegetarian cookery books, it aims to be the premier vegetarian restaurant in the South West. I have not tried any other exclusively veggie restaurants in the region, but Bath itself is very vegetarian friendly with most places having a number of original and interesting vegetarian options. When we found the restaurant we had hoped to get booked in for the Saturday evening but as it is only a small place that was not possible unless we wanted to eat at 9.30pm. We did manage to book for 7.30pm on the Sunday evening however.When we arrived on the Sunday, we were warne...Read More
