This typical british pub is a little gem. It has a good range of beers and was ideal for a swift half pint to break up our sight seeing. The man who served us was very friendly and was happy to chat to us. I wish we had had more time as the menu looked very good also. Will definitely... More

The place to go for traditional pub food. Had the fisherman's pie special with a pint of Blackthorn cider. Delicious.

After spending the day on the sightseeing bus and in Royal Victoria Park, we stopped here for a quick drink before heading back in to the city. Didn't have food, but the menu looked good and would be somewhere we'd go back to for a meal. The landlady was really nice and friendly and made everyone feel welcome. For the... More

Arrived for an early lunch and was greeted by friendly staff behind the bar. Shown to the back part of the pub where there was plenty of spaces for us to sit. Fab 80s music playing at a good level, great ambiance. Yummy traditional pub food at reasonable prices, served quickly, good choice of food.

Lovely atmosphere, busy and the two male members of staff we saw were helpful and friendly. We had already eaten elsewhere earlier on, but the food we saw being served looked and smelled lovely. Will definitely stop for lunch next time we are in Bath.

If you fancy some honest pub food that's great value then eat here. It's right in the middle of the High Street, so very convenient, the staff are very friendly and it has and olde worlde feel to the place, so nothing too pretentious.

We were on a visit to Bath and looking for a place to eat when we came across this pub. On entry we were greeted by the bar staff and found a table to use. Our order was taken and the food came within a very short time, all appeared to be freshly prepared, rather than the usual chain pub... More

Found Sam Wellers and enticed inside by a local having a cigarette outside. Ordered a bottle of Shiraz and two steaks for myself and my friend, and it arrived quickly, well cooked and tasty. Had to fork up up front because the barmaid said no tabs were allowed around Christmas! Would probably have had an extra pint, coffee and sweet... More
