Date of Last Visit: Sunday, April 27th
The Victims: Aunt Ursula & Uncle George
The Damage: £25 or thereabouts
The Background: Our feet HURT. I knew the Roman baths were big, but I had no idea HOW big. We’ve been in the baths in Bath ALL DAY. I am tired. Weary. And in need of some tea and cake.
We wander all around Bath in search of tea and cake and end up back where we started, at the baths. The Pump Room is attached to the Roman baths and we settle in for some tea.
Service is swift and efficient (they are closing in 45 minutes) and my carrot cake is really and truly lovely. It’s got an orange twist to it which is unexpected and delicious.
All throughout, there’s a live orchestra playing. It is all so very peaceful and mellow.
We leave refreshed, but we are happy to never see another Corinthian column again as long as we all shall live.
The Verdict: The Pump Room in Bath is excellent for a place that could easily be a tourist trap.
