Quaint little traditional tea room. The staff are quick and friendly. There isn't the queue here as there is over the road. Tip, don't sit by the door

We had a baked potato with chilli and cheese and a pulled turkey filled roll. Both were very nice but the quantity of salad was disappointing. It was expensive but not outrageously so for a tourist resort.

It's like stepping back in time! Lovely little café in the heart of Bath in Abbey Green, the front looking out over that wonderful tree. I've been there before and this visit did not disappoint. I went there for a light lunch of tomato and...More

The Bath Bun Tea Shoppe is just down a little side street from the Abbey Hotel that a lot of the tour groups use as a meeting place. We had a wonderful stop in the early afternoon, and although it was full, it didn't "bustle"....More

Hi, hard to gauge as it's a place to have great teas and sandwiches or fresh soup and bread. I'd very much doubt it, but why not ring and ask
