Welcome to The Garricks Head Pub and Dining Room

In the centre of Bath, the Garrick’s Head is a city centre pub and dining room.

We’re next door to the Theatre Royal so why not pop in before for a pre theatre meal or after the show for some late drinks…you might find yourself rubbing shoulders with the stars of the show.

Our superb kitchen team uses local suppliers and some considerable technical ability to create amazing dishes.

We have a range of local ales, ciders and imported beers all available alongside a huge wine list and over 50 whiskeys!

Recommended by Alastair Sawday’s special places, the AA pub guide and the Which? Good Food guide.

It’s the perfect location for a quick drink or a special occasion.

Kitchen refit, new head chef, new menu, happy new year!

Our kitchen will be closed until the 15 of January, we would like to apologise for any inconvenience this causes.  We are rebuilding the kitchen from the ground up, in ten days, …. no pressure. As well as building a new kitchen we have recruited a new head chef, Simon Mealing. Simon has created a fantastic menu, full of tasty dishes making the most of the best produce of the seasons.

We haven’t changed the best of the old menu either, so our fish and chips will still be the best in bath, our pie will still be handmade with proper pastry, and our mussels still delivered fresh from Cornwall will be steamed in West country cider and finished with local cream.

Have a look at the new menu here January

Being based in the South West means  that we’re able to use the best seasonal produce our area has to offer. We cook seasonally to make dishes that are exciting and above all delicious.

The Theatre Royal

We are proud of our relationship with the Theatre; the pub was once an inn for actors playing at the Theatre and is now frequented by cast and crew alike. Our restaurant opens at 5.30pm to cater for pre-show custom and we are open for lunch from 12.00 every day, so there is plenty of time to eat before a matinee. Visit the Theatre Royals website to see what’s on soon. Visit the Theatre Royal website
