It’s the most wonderful time of year…@SearcysBath

Published by .


The ambience, live music and mouth-watering menu makes the Pump Room the perfect place to visit over the festive season.

So what better place to spend it than in the Georgian luxury of the Pump Room? Located in the very heart of Bath, you can’t get a more festive atmosphere. Escape the hustle and bustle of the Christmas market, or warm up after enjoying the ambience around the illuminated Christmas tree outside Bath Abbey with some real festive treats to tickle every tastebud.

Gather your friends and family together and celebrate under the chandelier for a festive feast not to be missed. Using the best local produce, Searcys head chef Mark Pearson has created a menu to drool over and enough honey glazed pigs in blankets for everybody. Available between 23rd November and 24th December from midday to 2pm, you can enjoy a one course lunch for just £15.50, 2 courses for £22.50 or a full three course lunch for £29.50! With dishes like beef brisket, smoked bacon, baby onions and chestnut mushroom sauce, they’ve got you covered this Christmas. Tip: Try the egg nog custard tart and port poached pear for something truly special! If you’re celebrating something, or just really feel like getting into the Christmas spirit, raise a glass of English Sparkling Wine with any meal for just £7.


Perhaps you are looking for something a little different, but more quintessentially English. That’s where a festive Pump Room Afternoon Tea comes in! It is said that Anna Russell, 7th Duchess of Bedford and friend of Queen Victoria, invented the ritual in 1840 to keep at bay that ‘sinking feeling’ between lunch and a late evening meal when she would have a pot of Darjeeling tea, bread, butter and biscuits brought to her quarters. The Duchess soon began inviting friends to what became a fashionable social pastime among the upper classes, so what better excuse to now get your friends together? The Traditional Pump Room Tea at £26 per person is taking a seasonal twist, with different fillings for those finger sandwiches you would expect to see and a selection of cakes and pastries to get you in to the Christmas spirit, along with of course homemade fruit and buttermilk scones and a pot of house loose leaf tea.

Back by popular demand this year, the Pump Room restaurant is branching out to the enchanting Terrace for 6 exclusive nights only. For £60 per person, you and your friends, family or colleagues can get together for a Christmas cocktail on arrival, a delicious five course tasting menu and a view to rival no other, overlooking the steaming torch-lit waters of the Roman Baths. With very limited spaces, pre-booking is essential, making this a magical experience not to be missed.

The ambience, live music and mouth-watering menu may make the Pump Room the perfect place to visit over the festive season, but what’s there to say you don’t want to visit at another time of year too? Why not give the gift of an experience in the Georgian splendour this Christmas, and treat somebody special to a gift voucher. Valid for 12 months from the date of purchase, you can choose from options like Traditional Pump Room Tea, the new for 2018 Beau Nash Cream Tea, a £25 or £50 dining experience or maybe a Searcys bottle of Champagne to enjoy either on it’s own or to accompany a meal, and give your loved ones a real experience to remember.
