Bath is a handsome city at any time of year but in autumn it positively glows. Great food and drink are just two of the many reasons to visit this golden Georgian gem.
The Great Bath Feast is a melting pot of wonderful flavours and lively personalities; of cakes and ale; of great gourmets and warm gastro pubs; of buns and cook books; of gastro gadgets and wine and food matching… a month long Food Festival where all of the participants are keen to share their enthusiasm for fine food and drink with you.
The Great Bath Feast gets chefs showing off and championing local produce. Look forward to some great gastro performances by visiting celebrities Angela Hartnett, Nathan Outlaw, Michael Caines, Raymond Blanc, Prue Leith and one of the city’s most famous residents, Mary Berry.
This is a festival about indulgence and enjoyment; tasting fine wines and locally brewed beers and ciders; gourmet evenings and tasting menus; street food and farmer’s markets. Meet some of the nation’s top artisan cheese makers brought to Milsom Place by the Fine Cheese Co. or hone your skills with inspiration from the Bertinet Kitchen, Demuth’s Vegetarian Cookery School or The Lucknam Park Cookery School.
If you want to eat more for less this is the month to indulge. The businesses of Bath are extending a warm invitation with some great deals, promotions and special menus.
Walk your taste buds through the city on the Bath Taste Trail and sample flavours sweet and savoury, chocolate to cheese. Bath has many specialist food shops and delis, so seek out some treats to take home. Take tea in the grand and glorious Pump Room or a treat at Sally Lunn’s, both steeped in history, or chill in Sam’s Kitchen or Café Lucca, chic and contemporary independents. This is a city that has made hospitality its business for more than 200 years.
Hotels and B&Bs will be cooking up the Great Bath Breakfast for their guests before they venture out to explore the World Heritage city. This is a ‘full English’ packed with the freshest ingredients; tasty and satisfying and locally sourced.
