The Curfew

Certificate of Excellence2017 - 2018 Winner

Location and contact

The Curfew is a building that has seen many changes over its' near 200 years of standing. It was built in the 1820s by accomplished local architect Henry Edmund Goodridge who also built The Dispensary opposite, the nearby Cleveland Bridge, The Corridor in town and the stunning Beckford's Tower at Lansdown. In fact the novelist William Thomas Beckford appears on the original property deeds. The building was originally a bookshop before becoming a wine merchants in 1837 and eventually a public house named The Curfew Inn around 1960. The ground floor was extensively refurbished in August 2016, and whilst uniquely modern and stylish, has re-introduced the traditional high ceilings and pays tribute

A nice place within easy reach of Bath city centre - you could say just on the outskirts but the city is pretty small. We went on a bank holiday Monday night - quiet as you might imagine. A friendly barmaid greeted us and they...More

Really nice decor, good music, good selection of alcohol. They had crisps, nuts&other savoury snacks. But the only reason why I’m giving it a 3 star is the bar lady’s attitude . She was unprofessional and impatient when I took my time to select what...More

If you like 90s Ibiza disco music and two faced people, I highly recommend! The pub has a possible chance of surviving. The bar staff are friendly, but the owners are incredibly ignorant and obnoxious. Thankfully there are plenty of good places to go in...More
