Lovely location but very disappointed with food and service. Server trying to take orders, money, serve food and clear. Didn’t have food or drinks we wanted and vegetarian quiche just full of mushrooms and not nice. Didn’t get loose leaf tea that ordered and millionaire...More

This cafe is tucked away by the river weir under Pultney Bridge. The food can be a little expensive but there are things on the menu that are fairly reasonable. Great little place to sit by the river with a cup of tea or a...More

Mediocre coffee with mediocre pastries on the bridge by the river. I guess location is enough to make everything else redundant.

Lovely little cafe hidden away. Just had time for a quick coffee and lemonade. Sat outside overlooking the river, great views. Looking forward to my next trip to Bath so I can try out the delicious looking cakes.

Good view of the waterfall but that's about it. Loud shapeless music blaring out. No card machine. People looked in then went elsewhere. We wished we had!

A pity that the cafe closed before Christmas but it has reopened under new management. Main courses are £10 but you can select small courses from £5. If you don't want to eat a lot and want a great view of the Pulteney Bridge and...More

There's parking on the road on Great Pultenay street and Henrietta street. Alternatively the multi storey on Walcott street. On street is pricey but is free on Sundays!

Thank you for your observations. Yes we are a small independent and one minute we can have a few customers and 5 minutes later full up! This is why we have a food only policy at busy times usually 10-11.30 then 12-3.30 at... More
