Visited this weekend for a bite to eat and a drink. Very welcoming and friendly-nothing felt too much trouble. Had the artichoke soup which was very tasty.

On a day trip to Bath in the snow, we called into the Garricks Head and chose the fish and chips. Probably the best fish and chips I have ever tasted. The staff were very friendly and attentive. I would highly recommend this pub/restaurant.

Worst steaks I've ever had. We ordered rib eye steaks, and all of them were rubbish. Meat was very dry and frankly they were just overcooked( would not recommend to anyone.

We found that mulled cider is just the thing to sip by the fireside when there's a blizzard outside! We also had delicious lunch of pulled pork bun and a great ploughmans. The atmosphere and service were warm too.

Situated next to the Theatre Royal in the centre of Bath, the Garrick's Head Pub and and Dining Room offers a delicious selection of locally inspired dishes. Using seasonal ingredients and making everything fresh on site the kitchen serves traditional pub dishes such as fresh cod in beer batter with triple cooked chips and "the best burger in Bath" to more complex creations, Venison steak with a mini cottage pie of venison or poached Guinea fowl with wild garlic both popular at the moment. The Garrick's Head is ideally situated for pre Theatre dining as it is directly next door to the theatre so you are only minutes from your seat. Often described as a country pub in the city centre the Garrick's Head has roaring fires, four real ales and over 50 whiskeys, very much a pub with a dining room there are also over 50 seats outside on the terrace, perfect for watching Baths beautiful people come and go.
