New Restaurants, Cafes & Bars in Bath: 2020

Despite the fact that 2020 was a strange one (... let's just leave it at that), we had lots of new restaurants, cafes and bars open this year! 🤩

We've compiled a list of all of them so get your notes out and add your favourites to your 2021 restaurant bucket lists for when they can all reopen again. These are in no particular order, but we've also added some openings for 2021 at the bottom of the list.

Mjölk Cafe ☕️
Situated in the heart of Bath right next to the Roman Baths and Bath Abbey is a new Nordic-influenced cafe, Mjölk. They opened right at the end of 2020 and have some lovely cinnamon buns and other sweet treats, coffee and more!

Lunch at Martini Ristorante, Bath

Martini Ristorante is a lovely independent and authentic Italian restaurant in Bath. In fact, it's actually one of the first places I ever ate at when first moving here in 2014. As soon as we walked through the door we were kindly met with members of staff greeting us with 'ciao' and 'buongiorno'!

Sunday Roast at The Bathwick Boatman, Bath

We were recently invited to the Bathwick Boatman, a lovely independent pub/restaurant known for their delicious Sunday Roasts. We made our way down to the boating station and chose a table with big bright windows (on which was a festive cracker)!

To drink, we ordered a pint of Tunnel Vision steam infused Ale 4.2. This is super local and actually comes from one of a team member’s family brewery. We really liked this! It wasn’t bitter at all and had a really nice flavour. 

They have a special Sunday menu with lots of starter, main and dessert options. You can get 3 courses for £29 or 2 courses for £23. The mains obviously focus on roasts, but they have a vegan option and a non-roast option if you don't fancy it. They also have kids portions which is great for families (2 courses for £14).

Bottomless Brunch at The Botanist, Bath

The Botanist has a new brunch menu which you can choose to make bottomless! It’s a super cool concept where you have you choose one thing each from 6 different sections: eggs & tofu, hearty, bakery, fruit & grains, sweet and a mini juice.

Festive Afternoon Tea at The Pump Room, Bath

The Pump Room is well known for its afternoon teas, but they now have festive ones which have a range of savoury and sweet items. Each one comes with a glass of Prosecco, but you can swap this for some sparkling orange citrus fizz if you prefer. 🎄

In the Roman Baths, the interiors are super grand and festive at the moment. They have Christmas trees and lights everywhere, as well as a live pianist which adds a little extra layer of fanciness to the experience.
