Takeaway Italian from Dr. Al Forno, Bath

Let’s be honest, it’s been a tough year! While the future is still fairly uncertain and things continue to feel a bit miserable, there is one thing that is sure to improve your mood in the meantime – Italian food! 

One positive of recent months has been the adaptability and resourcefulness that we’ve witnessed across local businesses. From changing physical set-ups and figuring out the logistics, to changing approaches entirely and focusing on new things, there has been a lot of creativeness about and we are here for it!

One new lockdown innovation is Dr Al Forno, a Bath takeaway providing Italian street food and specialising in Al Forno dishes. Their authentic and traditional food can be ordered through Uber Eats and Deliveroo or collected from Widcombe. 

Lunch at JUNO, Bath

JUNO is a super chilled and unique spot in Bath, filled with lots of pool tables, TVs with sporting events, skateboards on the walls and more. In terms of food, they serve a range of pizzas, burgers, sandwiches and sides along with a super extensive drinks menu. As an independent, all of the pizza dough is made fresh in house every day and the meat is sourced from local butchers.

Dinner at The Hare & Hounds

The Hare & Hounds is a great pub in Bath which has stunning views down into the valley. As one of our favourite pubs, they have pub classics as well as some dishes with an international twist. For one of our previous reviews, click here (which has more pictures of the venue itself).

Unlike our last visit which was a warm summers evening, this was very rainy haha - the joys of living in the UK! We decided to start with some wine and nibbles...

Pastries from Thoughtful Bakery, Bath

Thoughtful Bakery is a lovely independent bakery in the heart of Bath. When I lived near Kingsmead Square my flatmates and I used to always get our bread from here as it’s so delicious. They do a range of different breads, pastries and lunches as well as pantry items, drinks etc. They also do fantastic doughnuts in unique & wonderful flavours every Thursday. 

You can go to the bakery as usual, click and collect (£5 minimum spend) or get their goods delivered to you (£10 minimum spend, £5 delivery charge). On this rainy morning, I decided to just brave the weather and head out in search of pastries (they really are that good). 

Strawberry & pistachio danish 🍓 [£2.80]

A delicious, flaky pastry with a soft and slightly sweetened vanilla crème patisserie, crunchy pistachios and fresh chopped strawberry. A nice, light pastry. 

Lunch Menu at Henry's Restaurant, Bath

Henry's is one of those Bath restaurants that I've always wanted to try but never quite got around to. Known to focus on seasonal, honest food with a flair of finesse, it was the first place I booked when I heard about the Eat Out To Help Out scheme. 

We walked into the relaxed restaurant and were instantly greeted by a friendly member of staff. We were given the menus (we decided to go for the £20 set lunch menu which would work out at £10 each... such a bargain).
