The Best Places to Stay in the UK

Eat and drink

Despite its rich historical heritage, Bath is by no means stuck in the culinary past. While there are innumerable but excellent snug, timber-beamed ale houses serving hearty traditional fare (grab a pie and a pint of Raven’s Gold at The Raven), several pubs have gone gastro, with innovative, mouth-watering results; there are also plenty of ethnic options (including a great Japanese restaurant) and an award-winning vegetarian/vegan restaurant, Acorn. Afternoon tea is serious business, and you can do it justice in the opulent surroundings of The Pump Room restaurant, a stone’s throw from the famous Roman baths, while being soothed by the delicate tones of the Pump Room Orchestra. No trip to the spa city is complete without a visit to historic Sally Lunns, home of the famous Bath bun, and as dusk descends, Bath’s nightspots come alive. If the weather’s nice, the real ale connoisseur can enjoy some al fresco pints of Badger on Hall & Woodhouse's super roof-terrace.
