Dinner at Nook Garden at The Bird Hotel, Bath

We had such a great time sampling the drinks at Nook Garden at The Bird Hotel over the bank holiday weekend (click here to read about it 👈🏼), so we jumped at the chance to head back to try their food menu too!

We were sat in the middle, perfectly placed to look across the garden, enjoy the skyline view of Bath Abbey and watch the sun set. We were under the twisting branches of the lit-up centrepiece tree, something between a piece of a movie set and a sculpture.

We ordered drinks as the sun began to set.

Sacchetto Supmante Extra Dry (Prosecco) 🥂 [£8]
Pint of Sulis 🍺 [£5.50]

Sulis is the lager from Bath Ales which we were really interested to try. Coined "the ultimate English lager" by its makers, we were suitably impressed. Clean, crisp, well-balanced and refreshing. The super dry Prosecco hit the spot too.

We also ordered a little something to nibble on to go with our drinks. Although a few of the snacks weren't available, we decided on sharing something.

Scotch egg with piccalilli 🥚 [£5.50]

This was a great accompaniment for our drinks, served with a deliciously zingy piccalilli, which is an English interpretation of South Asian pickles - relish of chopped pickled vegetables and spices.

We were lucky to experience the most beautiful sunset as we nibbled, drank and chatted. The skies glowed pink and it felt like the perfect location - a couple were snuggled up on the beanbags, a big group of friends were enjoying drinks and pizzas, and all seemed to be equally enjoying the Nook’s atmosphere.

As the evening draws in, the lanterns come on, the blankets come out and it becomes a bit of an outdoor snug with drinks by candlelight.

Once the sun had set, our mains arrived. We had chosen to go for two of the sourdough pizzas to share.

Primavera - artichoke, spinach, red pepper 🍕 [£10.50]
Mighty Meaty - prosciutto, chorizo, red pepper, rocket pesto 🍕 [£9.95] 

Our favourite was the Mighty Meaty. It was a great balance of delicious salty prosciutto and lots and lots of cheese which was offset well by the tomato. 

The primavera was also lovely. The sweet roasted peppers were complemented by the fantastic texture of the flavoursome artichokes. 

The food offering is just what ought to accompany outdoor drinks - casual dining consisting of yummy food (pizza, salads and snacks) to munch on while you enjoy the beautiful surroundings. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal.

🌟 We were impressed with the peaceful, outdoor environment and ambient background music which were coupled perfectly with a casual food menu. The Nook is open until the end of the month (29th September), providing an ideal opportunity to embrace the last of these long summer evenings.

🤵🏻 The staff are very friendly, however there was about a five minute wait in-between the two pizzas which isn't ideal. 

🌿 Veggie and gf options available.
