What to do in Bath this January (Foodie events, new openings & more!)

Happy 2020 everyone! 🌟

December in Bath was festive as ever with the annual (but bittersweet, for many Bath residents 😌) Christmas Market, pop-up themed taverns, bars and street food markets. 

Although the magic (and madness) of Christmas has passed for another year, there's no reason why your January needs to be accompanied by the 'January blues'. Here's our roundup of some of the best interesting, (somewhat) educational and exciting things to do this month; all food or drink related, of course. 😉

New in Bath

Creams, an "American" (it's really a British chain) dessert parlour, opened in Bath on the 20th of December! Serving an array of waffles, ice cream sundaes and crepes, it's one for the sweet-toothed. 🍦

Bosco Pizzeria - One of Bristol's favourite pizzerias is currently renovating a spot in Milsom Place where Argentinian steakhouse CAU used to be (if any of you OG followers/Bathonians remember that). Opening date TBC. 🍕

Mrs. Pott's Chocolate House - Frequently described as 'heaven for chocolate lovers', the dessert specialist from Bristol, is moving into where Crisp Cowley, the estate agents, used to be. We literally cannot wait. Opening date TBC. 🍫

What we got up to last month

December was a little more quiet for us as we took time off to celebrate all things Christmas, but here's what we got up to. We...

Kicked off the month by trying out The Bathampton Mill's festive menu 🌲

Ate alllll the food at Kingsmead Square's Street Food Market - this was seriously good. We had such good food from pizza to raclette, mac & cheese to Tibetan steamed dumplings. We can't wait for it to come back. 😋

Tried Larkhall Butchers for the first time - seriously high-quality, delicious meat. 🍗

And of course, ate & drank our way through the annual Bath Christmas Market. 🍩

Have a great start to 2020! 🥳
