Dozens of atmospheric backstreet bistros and tapas houses have sprung up in recent years, advancing the city’s reputation as a foodie destination. Somerset has wonderful local produce and Bath’s restaurants and gastro pubs use this to their full advantage when serving British-focused menus. The quintessential English cream tea experience is a must-do here with every smart hotel offering their own version of this sumptuous cream-and-jam-laden affair. Trendy cafés tucked down cobbled alleyways provide silky smooth home-roasted coffee. And cosy pubs light up the night for students, tourists and locals alike.
