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). 

All-Day Dining Menu at The Royal Crescent Hotel & Spa, Bath

The Royal Crescent Hotel recently invited us to try out their new all-day dining menu. As it was a sunny day, we had the opportunity to sit in their absolutely stunning gardens to enjoy the delicious food and lap up the sunshine. 


Dinner at Bill's, Bath

Bill's have a new menu and we were kindly invited down to try it out! 

Breakfast at NOOK, Frome

We love NOOK so much. It’s a great healthy cafe in Frome (around 30 mins from Bath - map below) which does amazing smoothie bowls, juices, buddha bowls, poke bowls etc! The staff are always super friendly and although we've had their poke bowls a couple of times, we hadn't tried their breakfast. 

Eat Out to Help Out: Participating Restaurants & Cafes in Bath, UK

*Please note that due to the number of businesses that have signed up, some restaurants & cafes may be missing. If you would like us to add one, please direct message us on instagram here: @batheats*

From 3-31 August, the government has implemented an 'Eat out to Help out' scheme. What does this mean for us diners? 🤔

Between 3-31 August, you can get up to a 50% discount (😱) on food & non-alcoholic drinks (up to a maximum of £10 per diner), every Monday, Tuesday & Wednesday. You can do this as many times as you like (so you could go every single Mon-Weds in August and get 50% off participating restaurants). For more information on the scheme please click here for the government's website.

We've scoured the internet for all the places in Bath that have signed up to the scheme & have attempted to categorise them here. We hope that you find this list useful - please do let us know via DM on instagram where you end up going. I've personally booked a couple of the more expensive restaurants (e.g. Henry's) that I've always wanted to try and can now do so for a fraction of the price! 

For our favourites, we've added a ✨ next to them (if one of your favourites doesn't have this next to them, it doesn't mean that we don't like it - we just may have never been ourselves so can't comment).

Vegan & vegetarian places have a little 🌱 by them.

Enjoy! 😘

P.S. This works for eat-in only! Takeaways are excluded.

P.P.S. I've also included some places outside of Bath (within 50 minutes) which are right at the bottom of this guide. There are some real gems there so be sure to check it out!
