Description: The Cork located on Westgate Buildings, Bath is situated within walking distance of all visitor attractions, shopping areas, the train station and coach park. The building where The Cork is, was historically a 'debtors' prison, and renovations have left the stunning Bath sandstone exposed. Comprising of two bars, two vaulted party pod booths, a conservatory and a large al fresco terrace area. The Cork offers an ideal location to socialise, relax, watch live sport or have a full on party! A full, varied range of wines, cocktails, hot beverages, real ales, cider, craft beers, plus an extensive list of whiskies, Bourbons and rums really make The Cork one of the places to visit in the UK. With a theme of fun fun and fun, The Cork has two Party Pods that can be hired for karaoke or live sports or to play your own music. A function area is available for larger parties too. Expect to see and listen to DJs, live bands, comedy acts and magicians, not to mention their own fun and games including the legendary Sunday night pub quiz. The food is fun too. All prepared on site, the hand crafted burgers, chili hot dogs, nachos and huge hand cut chips are legendary in Bath.

The biggest selling point for The Cork is the garden no question about that. All the staff were great! service with a smile! I didn't eat so cant recommend the food, but I really enjoyed my English Garden cocktail! Anyone looking for a relaxed drink in the sun go to The Cork!

Will be returning nothing in Bath can compete with the garden and wide range of drinks!

I booked a both th vaults for a birthday party, all in all our night was a success!

After receving fast and effeicient service at the bar!

Jamie (manager) ensured that the vaults were being cleared at all times and overall you could tell it was a well managed bar. Which is a short walk away from bath night life!

This place is a short walk from the city centre which we found purely by accident and were glad we did. Well worth a visit, great atmosphere. When entering we were greeted quickly in a friendly manner making us feel instantly relaxed and welcome. We had great entertainment from watching Jim (Manager?) & Danny, with Jim setting Danny with the regular but surprise training quiz to increase his knowledge base for all the staff to interact with customers more efficiently. During this they both still took time out to chat with us. I thoroughly recommend this place, we will certainly be back. It is always good to see this great relaxed interaction between the staff.

We ate here on a hen weekend, there was 10 of us on a Saturday afternoon. It was a lovely afternoon so the garden was full, we managed to get a seat. We ordered our food/drinks inside and the staff were friendly and polite. The issue we had was the arrival of our food. They advised they would let the kitchen know we were all on the same table so that the food could come out together, however this did not happen, all the meals came at different times. I was sharing a number of the smaller sharing plates with my friend, and even they didn’t come out together (ordered at the same time) with one of them arriving around 15-20 mins after the rest! Also 2 of the girls meals didn’t arrive till over half and hour after the rest of us! They had to return it and ask for their money back as we had to leave by then!! The choice on the menu wasn’t great either, mainly burgers, so for them not be able to get them out at the same time was a real let down for us.
The beer garden was lovely, and the staff were great (even when complaining), but the food service just completely let it down and for that I would probably not return, I definitely wouldn’t recommend to go here for food.
