Garricks Head

8 St. John’s Place, Bath, Somerset, BA1 1ET
What was once a run done pub has had an intense makeover by owners Charlie and Amanda Digney; making it a suitable neighbour to the Theatre Royal, next door.

Expect bare boards and tables – the latter dressed for diners with crisp napery.

Their menu changes with the seasons, and the days catch, but a summer snapshot brought 'Char-Grilled Squid with Chili Jam, Fennel & Baby Gem Salad'; 'Pressed Ham Hock Terrine with Piccalilli & Toast' and 'Griddled Pear, Blue Cheese & Walnut Salad with Honey & Mustard Dressing' among the starters.

'Char-Grilled Calves Liver with Bacon & Green Sauce'; 'Fish of the Day with Béarnaise Sauce & Wilted Spinach' and 'Chump of Lamb Marinated in Garlic & Rosemary with Mint Sauce' listed among the mains.

If you still have room, you might be tempted by 'Vanilla Cream with Seville Orange Compote'; 'Chocolate Fondant' and 'Prune & Armagnac Tart'.

They also offer a good selection of bar snacks ranging from 'Montgomery Cheddar & Chutney Sandwich' through 'Chopped Steak Burger' to 'Fresh Beer-Battered Fish & Chips'.

The King William in Bath and The Oakhill Inn in Oakhill (both q.v's) are under the same ownership.
