The Tenner Feast Ten Second Guide: The Bath Brew House
The Tenner Feast Ten Second Guide:
Where is it? The Bath Brew House, 14 James St West.
What’s on offer? A quarter spit roast chicken with garlic mayonnaise and a side of skinny fries, and a schooner of one of their home-brewed ales to wash it down.
Is it any good? Yes – the chicken was beautifully tender and juicy, and the fries were great. My only criticism would be that the portion sizes weren’t terribly generous, so you may be tempted to splash out on a pudding afterwards.
Why this place? As you’d expect, The Bath Brew House does some excellent ales. My dining companion went for Emperor, one of the regular ales brewed in house by Anna, and I tried Tap ‘n Go, an ale developed in collaboration with the Bath Ladies RFC – how cool is that? It was a nice pale ale with a citrusy edge to it. I also love the Brew House for its fantastic atmosphere – both the bar and the restaurant are cosy and friendly, always full of happy regulars and with frequent live music.
Marks out of ten? 8. The food was delicious and the service great, but I did think the portions could have been bigger.
