Fantastic pub - my favourite in Bath. The Abbey Bellringer gets delivered directly from the brewery round the corner and is superb. A rare example of what a great pub should be: Great beer, good company, papers, real fire, tradition. A place I could spend my last days.

Multi-roomed CAMRA Heritage Pub. It's an institution and rightly so. On the day I was there, they were holding a 12-hour pub quiz for charity, so room was scarce. Unfortunately the beer selection isn't up to all that much. They have a few Westcountry beers on cask, but anything forward-looking seems to have been given a miss (except for some bottles of Punk, which seem to be everywhere these days). My verdict: it's a place for a quick half or a day-long session but nothing in between!

A charming, well-kept,old pub from 1760 in upper part of town. Promotes a cozy intimately atmosphere spread over a few smaller room. Dark wooden interiors and stained glass windows. Six cask ales available. Friendly service. Music free. We had a really relaxing an enjoying time here. (Visited with Finn 03.05.2017).

Superb heritage bar, full of character(s). Beer range isn’t exciting, but you do get the option of at least one beer from Abbey Ales. Visit for the ambiance, superb place.

The Star Inn is definitely one of Bath’s finest boozers. It is a cosy, traditional multi-room public house designed for drinking. The interior must be the best in town. They offer a small selection of cask beer (including Bass on gravity dispense) and some decent more “contemporary” bottles. Perhaps not the most exciting or edgy selection of beer out there, but I always find something to drink. Not a pub for seeking out new beers per se, but a must-visit pub for its character and charm.

Loved this place. Traditional pub, nice atmosphere, wooden interior, working fireplaces. Was quiet at first, but as the night went on it became quite lively. Good cask selection, good service, decent prices. For me it’s a must when in Bath. Would like to visit it again.

Beautiful old pub a short trot out of town, lots of nooks and crannies, very quiet though. Go for the history of it and to have a nose around.
Apr ’14 The pub was pretty full on a Saturday afternoon and the beer range had improved a little with slightly more choice. I’m glad I made the effort to re visit.
