Excellent burgers. Tip: New Customers get a 20% discount on online orders to Take Away. Also note that online orders can't be placed during peak times Friday and Saturday (approx. 18:30 - 21:30)….but would still be worth turning up, placing an order in person and waiting. Its minutes from our home, so a good option if you want to bring back to the kitchen.

Great curry, a few minutes from the house. It's also 'Bring Your Own Booze' (BYOB), with no corkage charges. There is a Co-op and Sainsbury's Local within 2 minutes, so great options for picking up chilled beer or wine enroute. Bookings are recommended for Friday and Saturday evenings, as it can get quite busy.

Good (but not the best in Bath, in my opinion) pizza which is local to the house. Tip: Thursday Deal is any pizza and any drink for £10, and they usually have Electric Bear on draught (the local brewery).

Local and upmarket Café / Deli, which has a small but well stocked shop. Great options for breakfast and lunch. It makes a good stop point enroute, or on return, from Alexandra Park. It's approximately 10 minutes from the house.

Sightseeing & Activities
Possibly the best views across Bath. It takes around 15-20 minutes from the house, is generally up hill all the way, and requires a particularly steep road, or a lot of steps. BUT, it's absolutely worth it and most guests can manage it Ok.

What better way to enjoy the Bath skyline than from the rooftop pool, bathing in Bath's famed hot spring water. Warning - it's not possible to book for general entry; so be prepared to wait, and maybe try to turn up early. Booking for packages are possible, but are more expensive.

The Two Tunnels Greenway is a shared use path for walking and cycling in Bath, Somerset, England. The route is National Cycle Route 244. The route joins National Cycle Route 24 south of Bath, with National Cycle Route 4 which runs through Bath. Very popular for walkers and cyclists, and a useful way of connecting up Oldfield Park and Bear Flat.

A very pleasant way to spend a couple of hours, particularly if your a city-slicker ;) It's possible to walk to Bath City Farm from Oldfield Park, but it requires a walk up The Hollow, which is quite steep...but very do-able. There's also a small café with outdoor seating and great views. Seating is outdoor only, so best saved for when the weather is reasonable.

A CAMRA Pub, popular with locals, with a good local music scene (live bands generally on Friday and Saturday nights, but check website, and beware...there are a lot of pubs called 'The Royal Oak' in Bath!). A good choice if you like your drinking spots a bit basic, a little rough around the edges, full of character, with good ale on tap. They also brew their own ales on site.

"No games machines, no music, no pool table and no cordon bleu food menu to distract the taste buds – but The Star Inn still shines on in Bath". A great spot to visit, particularly if unfamiliar with British Pub culture. Very historic, and if you're lucky, I believe there are Session Musicians playing on Friday evenings. Plus you can get a pint of the local Abbey Ales Bellringer poured from a jug.
