Happened to pass by this lovely looking pub ambling back to our canal boat after a walk round Bath. I thought we wouldn't be welcome as we had a big brown Frankie dog with us. Far from it. Frankie was the guest of honour and benefited from many a treat from the dog biscuit jar behind the bar. We also... More

The food, wine and beer choices are excellent and the bar staff friendly and helpful. Managers Emily and Dan are fab and delivered everything as promised. Overall a great pub which if you... More

The Curfew is welcoming locally Pub with great real ales, good atmosphere and a very friendly atmosphere.

We arrived at our house for the weekend and popped out for some food. There were 16 hens looking for some food and drinks. The curfew inn did not disappoint. Lovely bar with excellent staff. Dan also cooked up some lovely food that we all enjoyed. Well worth a visit. Staff were excellent on providing information and keeping the drinks... More

Whilst staying in Bath over Christmas this became "our local". Great wines and beers, helpful lovely staff and even opened up the top room so we could watch the rugby! Had a meal too, best chilli ever had. Love to Tom and Bella!

What a lovely surprise to find this cosy bar. After walking past several 'trendy, foody' pubs which didn't look like a place I would want to go into, this place ticked the boxes. Both Landlord and Landlady were very friendly, the bar area is quite small but large enough to accommodate some of the locals. Food is served, both lunchtime... More

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 to the building's original features. You will find a selection of beer and ale from the Wadworth Brewery (based just a few miles away in Devizes), as well as a fine offering of carefully selected wines and spirits. On the first floor, (also extensively refurbished in August 2016, including the introduction of an additional bar) you will find a beautiful lounge to enjoy and soak up the natural atmosphere created by the high ceilings, original sash windows and imaginative decor (the huge bookshelf and 'chesterfield-esque' sofa are particularly popular features). For those wishing to spend time with friends and family in welcoming and informal surroundings, The Curfew's upstairs lounge is also available for group bookings as well as exclusive hire! And finally, a rare treat for Bathonians and visitors alike is our south facing garden, complete with terrace, to enjoy some drinks and food, al fresco style.
