The Salamander, Bath

The Salamander is located in the centre of the city of Bath and is owned by the Bath Ales Brewery.

The Interior

The pub was originally a coffee, steak and chop house and is now a smartly decorated pub with wood throughout and plenty of seating.

At the front is a large disued fireplace with a large mirror above and a Coffee, Steak and Chop House sign. The long bar has a great selection of ales from Bath Ales as well as foreign lagers. Upstairs there is a large supper room complete with galley kitchen.

Despite it’s proximity to the main thoroughfares, the ‘Sally’ was surprisingly free of tourists when I visited on a Sunday afternoon. Prior to visiting the pub, I was at the tiny Coeur De Lion which had tourists queuing outside before it opened.

Beer and Food

Being run by Bath Ales, the pub stocks a full range of their beers such as SPA, Gem, Golden Hare and Barnstormer along with their own stout (Dark Side) and cider (Bounders). They also sold foreign lagers such as Budvar and Sagres as well as the Belgian beer, Bruges Zot. The Bath Ales are reasonably priced (between £2.65-2.95) with the stout, cider and foreign beers costing between £3.20 and £3.75.

I didn’t try any of the food but I’ve read great things about it. According to the review at the Pig Guide, the menu ranges from traditional pub grub such as burgers, fish and chips and sandwiches through to pan-seared sea bass or breast of guinea fowl which is served in the supper room.

After visiting The Salamander, why not pay a visit to the nearby Raven.
