It is easy to see why this family-run restaurant rates in the top ten for brunch in Bath. The choice of food is good with the flexibility to pick and mix, the service is friendly and the food is fantastic, whatever the choice. It is hidden a little side street but don't give up, it is definitely worth the extra effort to find this gem.

This recommendation is all about getting you out of the heavily-trodden tourist routes in favour of some greenery. Follow Pultney Street out of town towards the Holbourne Museum. The cafe is simple, coffee is great. A lovely place to spend an hour taking in some natural beauty.

Probably our favourite place for dinner. Castle Farm Café is located in Midford, a 10-minute cab journey outside of Bath. That sounds like effort but this place is unique and magical. The service has always been friendly. The food never disappoints. It's just a lovely, lovely place to get away from tourist pursuits. Booking essential. Need to cab it there and back.

The White Hart is 50 steps from our home over the road from the Co-op. It makes the grade because it has a magical garden to enjoy with friends when the sun is out and warm and cosy inside in the evening. Food is good.

Recently taken over by our favourite Irish pub landlord Mick Dempsey, the Ring O Bells is as lovely as the staff are friendly. The atmosphere is filled with laughter and discussion, and the decor is warm and comfortable. Only 50m from our home. It's worth going in for some craic either on your way to town or on your return from your days pursuits.

Get there during daylight. The view over Bath is incredible. Food is fantastic and the atmosphere is friendly and warm. Catch a cab up and down. Walking up the steep hill and the pain that comes with it may be worth it but not advised!
