Came here on Friday night the magicians was absolutely hilarious. The magic was top level I’ve seen a few magicians but kieron was next level he was a super nice guy and was really patient with some very drunk guys. Highly recommend for the magic.

Honestly couldn’t rate the manager and staff more. Welcoming, friendly, chatty and accommodating. The magic in the sleight bar is mind blowing Definitely a MUST DO when visiting bath, otherwise your missing out. Thanks to Paul & team for looking after us constantly!

Nice cosy pub near the weir which is a great stop if you're doing the Christmas markets and don't want to pay for tourist trap food. Try the fish n chips and ask the bar staff to taste any of the beers on tap.

Whilst I can't remember the menu off by heart I'm fairly certain they do but the staff are nice and I'm sure they'd whip you up something specific to your tastes should you ask :)
