The Pump Room

Stall Street Bath BA1 1LZ

The social heart of Georgian Bath, the Pump Room is a classy spot for a leisurely lunch. The restaurant serves refined dishes along the lines of slow-braised shin of beef and caramelised red-onion double-baked soufflé, and there’s a choice of 25 teas for afternoon tea (from 2.30pm), with light snacks or pricey cakes. A classical music trio provides sophisticated entertainment, and you can get a free glimpse into the baths from behind a fountain where hot spa water is drawn for drinking.
