The Circus Restaurant

European chic in Bath city centre

Situated between the Bath landmarks of The Circus and The Royal Crescent, in a golden-stone Georgian townhouse, The Circus Restaurant exudes the city’s historic splendour – minus the pomp and pretension.

The family-run establishment specialises in modern European cooking and seasonally changing menus, accompanied by Old World wines. It’s a year-round hit with locals and has a bustling atmosphere, particularly in the summer months when guests can dine alfresco at the smattering of on-street tables.

Light summer starters – such as Iford Manor cured ham with burrata, nectarine and heritage tomato salad, and Brixham sea bass cured with mango and lime gin – prime the palate for a curated selection of French-inspired mains punctuated by hero ingredients from the South West.

French-trimmed guinea fowl supreme is served with goat’s cheese arancini, courgette ribbons and roasted peach, while herb-crusted pork tenderloin is paired with buckwheat, braised ham hock, peas and broad beans.

The sweet-toothed will relish zingy desserts such as the lemon and elderflower posset with lemon curd, crushed Ricciarelli biscuits and lemon verbena.

Trencherman’s tip: Book in for a lazy lunch to enjoy the extremely good value set menu over a bottle of England’s only home-produced Crémant from Bride Valley in Dorset.
