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

Happy March everyone! 🌼

Now that we're moving out of wintertime and into spring, you will probably start to notice lots more outdoor seating areas where people are laughing, enjoying their afternoon coffees and hanging out with their pooches at the end of a long day. We're working on getting an al fresco dining guide up ASAP (send us our favourites on instagram!)

Until then, here are a couple of cool events & fun new openings in Bath. Quite a few old favourites have had makeovers and launched new menus (Pig & Fiddle, Joya, The Walcot etc...) along with a couple of very exciting new openings which we're sure you've already seen on our instagram feed. 

Afternoon Tea with Twining's at Bailbrook House Hotel

We were recently kindly invited to an afternoon tea event at Bailbrook House Hotel in Bath (London Road) with Twinings tea!

The lovely Lucy Chappell, Twinings’ tea expert, talked us through all the different teas and gave us a couple of fun facts - did you know that the UK gets through 165 million cups of tea a day?! 🤪

Bottomless Brunch at Revolution, Bath

So many of you always ask us where you should go for bottomless brunch in Bath that won't break the bank. We can finally give you a recommendation! Revolution has bottomless brunch every weekend (Sat & Sun), starting at just £20pp for 2 hours. 

You can choose one dish each and have a choice of soft drinks, beer, prosecco, aperol spritz & more. All prices quoted below are if you ordered them from the normal menu - as you can see, the £20 is great value for money.  

Dinner at Brasserie Blanc, Bath

Brasserie Blanc is celebrity chef Raymond Blanc's baby. Mostly based in London, there are a couple of different locations around the UK, including Bath! Set in a beautiful Georgian building, the restaurant has a range of French dishes available along with inspiration from some other cuisines. We decided to try out both some traditionally French and some more international dishes.

Wine & Tapas at Beckford Bottle Shop, Bath

Beckford Bottle Shop is a wine shop and restaurant, serving over 250 bottles of delicious wine from around the world, food and brunch. Anyone who’s followed us for a while knows that it’s one of our Bath favourites, and this visit was no different. Click here for another review of their dinner & here for a review of their Sunday brunch

Lunch at NOOK, Frome

NOOK is an Aussie-style cafe in Frome (just a 30-minute drive from Bath) serving up breakfast bowls, Hawaiian-inspired poke bowls, juices & smoothies. Juices are freshly made each morning and their menu is 100% gluten-free with more than half of it being vegan. The ingredients are organic, local & ethically-sourced where possible which is great considering that their dishes are well-priced. 

Dinner at Joya Italian Steakhouse, Bath

Many of you will remember Joya as another Italian restaurant in Bath, but with a new lick of paint and menus, it’s transformed itself into a sleek, stylish new steakhouse, offering a unique hot stone experience. Staying true to their roots, they also have a large choice of pasta, as well as vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free options. Cook your own steak to your heart's desire, choosing from a range of four different cuts. 

Takeaway Lunch at Goulash, Bath

Green Park Station has always had a great range of takeaway food stalls and Goulash is no exception. Opened by the guys who used to have The Good Egg, they've transformed the place into a goulash stall. As we walked into Green Park Station, we could smell the delicious food and were super excited to try it out. 

Some of you may be wondering what goulash is. It's a traditional Hungarian stew that usually contains meat and other vegetables, seasoned with paprika. The guys at Goulash have taken a traditional dish and given it a modern spin. They offer chicken, beef and vegan options, served with either pita, bao buns, rice, mashed potatoes, wraps or Hirata Buns. 

Where to Eat in Edinburgh, Scotland | EDINBURGH FOOD GUIDE

Edinburgh is always somewhere that will have a special place in my heart. I finished my last two years of secondary school here and even though it was difficult to adapt to rainy, Scottish weather, my whole family and I fell in love with the city. 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿

It's full of beautiful architecture, an extremely rich history and friendly Scots. It's where J.K. Rowling wrote Harry Potter ⚡️ (which is evident when you go down places like Victoria Street which was the inspiration for Diagon Alley), where you can hear bagpipes wherever you are in Old Town (although sometimes it's just a CD that tourist shops play loudly to entice you in lol) and where you can drink as many different varieties of whiskey that your heart desires. 

All-in-all, it's a great place for a city break and with direct flights & trains from both Bristol and London, it's easy enough to get to from Bath. This was the first time that I've been back since Summer 2016 and, excitingly, so many new food gems have popped up! 🍴

With all my recommendations from both friends who went to Edinburgh University and friends from the city itself, as well as all of the lovely people who messaged me on our instagram, we found some of the best food that we've ever had. Here's what we got up to.
