Green Park Brasserie and Bar
Bath is a culture-fi lled hive of activity, with the long-established, renowned local institution that is Green Park Brasserie at its heart. The Brasserie is best known for putting on free live jazz every week from Wednesday to Saturday, and is also a long-time supporter of and venue for Bath’s Fringe Festival, Party in the City and The Great Bath Feast.
The Brasserie won the title of Bath’s Independent Restaurant of the Year for 2015-16 thanks to its quality food and drink, relaxed ambience and friendly service. Having supported local producers for the last 24 years, the team happily takes advantage of the weekly farmers’ market that’s situated right beside the brasserie.
Grab a delicious organic Fairtrade coffee from 10.30am, or a pint of draught beer – don’t miss the likes of Butcombe Blond or Pilsner Urquell – from the fully stocked bar, which is open all day. Over 40 wines have been carefully selected by the owner, but if cocktails are more your thing, you should make the most of happy hour, from 5pm to 7pm.
Lunch service starts from noon, when popular dishes like the organic burger, seafood linguine, great salads and doorstop sandwiches are served. Sunday roast lunches featuring Tunley Farm pork and Newton Farm beef are very popular, particularly with those visiting the Bath VA Vintage & Antiques Market next door.
Evening meals are served from 5.30pm, with an early-diner menu offering great value at just £9 for a main course. The à la carte menu boasts a selection of interesting starters, from marinated tuna loin to roast beetroot, Hinton sheep’s cheese and butternut squash tart. Classic mains include confit duck leg with Dauphinoise potatoes, pan-fried sea bass with pea and mint risotto and 28-day-aged rib-eye steak. Delicious desserts include chilled dark chocolate and raspberry fondant, crème brûlèe and a fabulous local cheeseboard.
There is also a fixed-price menu for larger groups; receptions, private parties and dinners for up to 100 guests can be held in Bath Function Rooms on the first floor. Additionally, The Brasserie benefi ts from two outside covered terraces. So, take a seat, watch the world go by and savour a pizza from the new wood-fired pizza oven.
