Eclectic mix of friendly folk, proper live music (a favourite place for the buskers to hang out),
lots of beers to choose from .
Definitely best pub in Bath by a long shot !
First impressions were not too good, something about the place felt awkward somehow. Perhaps because it looks a bit more downmarket inside, than you would expect in Bath. Scruffy is not necessarily a bad thing, and it isn’t here.
Turns out this is a pretty nice pub, old style, with a twist, suitable for the young and the old. My beer was nice (but hard to choose…from like 8 options! They have 7 regular ales..and they are really wonderful choices) And despite being busy the bartender was keen to serve.
Annoying pub entertainments like TVs and fruit/quiz machines are deliberately and thankfully shunned. If you want to be diverted then come along for the live music.
This is a must visit Bath pub. Great ales and ciders, brilliant atmosphere with such an eclectic mix of people, music but not loud and banging unless it's one of the livelier live acts they have on on a Monday or Wednesday. They have a really good well established open mic night in the back room (The Love Lounge) on a Thursday. There's also a washing machine and a dryer out back too! Handy for the backpackers, do your washing and have a beer while you wait!
One of my top 5 Bath pubs!
One of the best "old style" pubs remaining in Bath. By which I mean a place you can get great real ales, sit down with your mates and have a good chat (unless it's one of the live music nights!) Situated in Bath's bohemian quarter, and with an eclectic clientele this is an oasis in the desert of soulless pubs smothering the rest of the city.
great little pub, bit out of the centre of town but well worth the walk if u are looking for a proper old man pub, quite a decent selection of beers, a generous beer garden at the back, a busy but relaxed atmosphere..and often playing live music which can be really good. great for a few evening drinks or a more full on session..
One of my all time favourites. Excellent any time with great beers, great atmosphere and great music at times.
Get in the corner with the billiard table and have a few games over a pint or two.
Recommend the strong Belgian Beers for something different. Up to 12%!
Also excellent in the day for a quiet cup of tea.
The Bell Inn is a large popular pub, in Walcot Street, near the centre of Bath.
The Bell has free live music every Monday and Wednesday evening and Sunday lunchtime and an open mic night every Thursday night.
A good selection of real ales is served here including Butcombe and Gem which are brewed locally. I remember having Raspberry Lager here once which was quite nice. They serve bar snacks and rolls and home made pizza on a Sunday afternoon.
