This week, The Pig is mostly…
LOVIN’ The Grapes’ pretty Westgate Street ‘parklet’, tucking into the buoyant bar menu (the Salt Beef Sandwiches are a must!) and delighted to get reacquainted with the pub’s first floor Budo Bar who have recently introduced some fascinating new Korean dishes to their fascinating menu, available every Friday-Saturday evening (https://thegrapesbath.co.uk)
KEEPING a keen eye on the unexpected (under the current circumstances, at least) flurry of new eating out ventures opening in Bath: Boho Marche at the Frances Hotel, a brand new oyster bar coming to the High Street, Bar Breton on Barton Street (courtesy of the popular Pintxo, just across t’road), Portuguese bakery Nata & Co coming soon to Bridge Street – phew! There’s a lot of forthcoming investigative forays on The Pig’s plate…
ALREADY comfortably familiar with the delights of Widcombe Deli’s super-pretty new Abbey Deli, on Abbey Green – good work, lovelies! (https://www.facebook.com/Widcombedeli/)
REMINDING piggies in the mood for a little party that The Bird’s unique Dining Domes – one part space age pod, one part London Eye capsule booth, all parts a uniquely beautiful, super-stylish way for up to six people to eat, drink and be merry in magical surroundings – are now open in the garden of The Bird’s Pulteney Road nest (https://www.thebirdbath.co.uk)
TICKING off multiple boxes on the Christmas pantry wish list and having a very good time shopping at Goodies Deli (Larkhall): perfect plum puddings, marvellous mince pies, posh panettone, chic charcuterie, charming cheese and much, much, much more, all up for grabs (https://www.goodiesdeli.co.uk)
OINKING loudly about the ridiculousness of the Scotch Egg debacle, congratulating Bath’s hospitality businesses for all their hard work and dedication… and making a very serious point about why Going Out Should Be The New Staying In; read my rant in full here: https://thepigguide.com/why-going-out-should-be-the-new-staying-in/)
