Looking On The Bright Side: A Lovely Sunday Roast
12 August 2017

Looking for a delicious Sunday lunch in Bath? Then read on.


So summer ought to be warm, eating al-fresco, strappy-top-and-sunnies weather. At the moment, on the

whole, it’s not living up to expectations. However! Given how meltingly hot it is in parts of Europe at the moment we’re looking on the bright side and enjoying the sunny spells when they come, and taking advantage of the colder days by partaking of an English favourite – a hearty and heart-warming Sunday lunch.

It has to be said that there are plenty of great locations where you can get a good Sunday lunch in Bath, but there are also some restaurants that are a cut-above. With that in mind, these are a few of our top roast dinner recommendations…

The Green Park Brasserie and Bar is one that is a favourite for many locals because of its incredibly relaxed and friendly environment. Its menu is jam-packed with organic options, and some more unusual selections including venison sausages and mustard mash to name but two. It also boasts a fantastic range of wines to complement whatever you choose to eat.

Next, a restaurant with a view and a verandah (covered – just in case the showers do come to fall), is The Bathwick Boatman. This restaurant is, as the name suggests, next to the Avon and has gondolas, punts and rowing boats you can rent in the Boating Station which is just next door. It has a warm and welcoming atmosphere and equally lovely food.

Also well worth a visit and a mention is Gascoyne Place. It’s described as a gastropub but it is Bath’s own take on a gastropub; which means that you can choose to dine in the elegant first floor Georgian dining rooms, in the cosy snug room, out on the sunny mezzanine, or in the downstairs lounge which has made a real feature of its exposed section of Medieval city wall. It embodies Regency luxury but at the same time maintains an affordable menu.

Next up on our list of recommended restaurants is Marlborough Tavern, which is particularly good if you’re looking for a restaurant that will delight vegetarians and meat-eaters alike. Some of the dishes getting rave-reviews recently include their sweet potato and mushroom wellington, their roast beef, and their white chocolate Crème brulee – a dessert that has to be tasted to be believed.

Finally, if a traditional pub atmosphere is what you’re looking for, then The Boater pub, which is only two minutes from our front door, has a great vibe and stocks an impressive selection of beers (more than thirty global craft beers and six cask ales) to have along with your meal. 


Hopefully, one of more of these brilliant Bath restaurants ticks all your roast dinner boxes, but if you’re still not sure where to go for a great meal then please do ask us. We’re full of ideas!
