On any given rugby day in Bath, you can be sure that there will be a swarm of people around the weir and Pultney Bridge. You’ll also be certain that many folk will have had a pre or post match beer in Framptons.
This bar and restaurant has been on my radar for a while now but with so many amazing places to eat in Bath it can be tricky to get round everywhere!
With its dark interiors, high ceilings, intricate wallpapers against exposed brick walls and imposing chandeliers, it stands bold and proud within the Grade II Georgian listed building.
We stopped off for food one lunchtime after a meeting with our accountant – such meetings need to be counter balanced!! By chance it was a Tuesday…and Tuesdays are beer and a burger for £10.
The burger was cooked to perfection and included bacon, gerkins, salad and melted cheese – in my case I opted for blue cheese. My heart sank a little when there wasn’t oodles of cheese, just a crumble. Nevertheless it didn’t distract from the overall tower. The skinny fries had just the right amount of seasoning included.
The menu has a mixture of good old classics and some gastro pub choices thrown in. I’ll also add that they have an excellent array of gin to choose from which is also deserves additional bonus points from me!
Rumour has it the brunch menu is pretty epic – I think we’ll be returning again soon!
