The slow-roasted pork and apple sauce crusty bun was amazingly good for £6. Perfect on a chilly autumnal day! Staff are very helpful and friendly.

Good choice of beers and friendly service. Good pub with slight bizarre decor. Great place to get a quiet beer.

My wife and I popped in this lovely little boozer while wandering through Bath. Friendly staff and smashing surroundings, the beer wasn't bad either.

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.
