The Curfew has been in Bath for ages and has recently been through an upgrade and what is most excellent ( as Bill and Ted would say) is that they have managed to balance a friendly local atmosphere with great beer and some good food. This is the place to go on a cold winters night for excellent beers, friendly... More

Most pubs allow you to e vape but it is polite to ask. Not the Curfew on a very quiet Monday night, where the landlady brusquely asked us not to. It soon became a discussion and due to the landlady's lack of "soft" management skills we agreed not to but soon left. Our table had the glasses cleared away and... More

We really like the refurbishment! It's good to have some local ales only from Devises. They are very welcoming owners, super meal and great local pub! ☺

We were visiting Bath yesterday (Sunday) and after grabbing some food had a stroll around and passed 'The Curfew'. Slightly out of the tourist bustle (thankfully) the impressive high windows showed off a welcoming contemporary interior. A very well kept pint of Wadworth IPA and a glass of chilled Sav Blanc ordered, we sat and relaxed. A nice mixed crowd... More

We've recently moved to Bath and were keen to visit The Curfew as its close to where we live. Our first visit is likely to be our last visit. We were treated with indifference by the woman serving - no welcome or friendly hello. She seemed keen to get the transaction over quickly so she could continue chatting to a... More

A little gem of a pub just a short stagger from town. Sue the landlady is fantastic and will go out of her way to make sure your visit is pleasurable. Well worth a visit :)

The Curfew is a building that has seen many changes over its' near 200 years of standing. It was built in the 1820s by accomplished local architect Henry Edmund Goodridge who also built The Dispensary opposite, the nearby Cleveland Bridge, The Corridor in town and the stunning Beckford's Tower at Lansdown. In fact the novelist William Thomas Beckford appears on the original property deeds. The building was originally a bookshop before becoming a wine merchants in 1837 and eventually a public house named The Curfew Inn around 1960. The ground floor was extensively refurbished in August 2016, and whilst uniquely modern and stylish, has re-introduced the traditional high ceilings and pays tribute to the building's original features. You will find a selection of beer and ale from the Wadworth Brewery (based just a few miles away in Devizes), as well as a fine offering of carefully selected wines and spirits. On the first floor, (also extensively refurbished in August 2016, including the introduction of an additional bar) you will find a beautiful lounge to enjoy and soak up the natural atmosphere created by the high ceilings, original sash windows and imaginative decor (the huge bookshelf and 'chesterfield-esque' sofa are particularly popular features). For those wishing to spend time with friends and family in welcoming and informal surroundings, The Curfew's upstairs lounge is also available for group bookings as well as exclusive hire! And finally, a rare treat for Bathonians and visitors alike is our south facing garden, complete with terrace, to enjoy some drinks and food, al fresco style.
