There’s so much on offer that it can be tough to know where to start – so here’s our Top 5 not-to-be-missed hit list…
Local Food Tasting, Rossiters of Bath, 30th of September
We start – of course – with our very own fabulous event! We’ve teamed up with gorgeous destination department store Rossiters of Bath to offer a delicious tasting event – come along and try some of our favourite goodies from our hampers, and meet Taste of Bath founder Helen Rich as well as some of our lovely local producers in person. What’s more, it’s totally free! Just drop in between 10.30 and 3.30 for a nibble, and maybe even make a start on your Christmas shopping…
Malbec Wine-Tasting Dinner, The Clifton Sausage, 29th of September
One for the wine-lovers – this will be a fantastic event, with a delicious five course menu specially created to make Malbec the star of the show. It’s the perfect way to spend an evening as the weather gets colder, with all sorts of mouth-watering comfort food from duck rillettes to venison ragu, and of course, a carefully paired Malbec with each different dish. Tickets are £55, click here to book!
Chocolate Two Ways, Newton Farm Shop, 5th of October
This event is hosted by one of our very own brilliant producers, Seven Hills Chocolate, and if you’ve tasted their creations then you’ll know exactly why this event is not to be missed. Chocolatier Nick Shearn will be demonstrating techniques before leading a hands-on workshop where you’ll learn to fill, pipe and decorate your own chocolates – which, naturally, will be all yours to take home at the end!

The Tenner Treat, throughout the Great Bath Feast
Last but not least is one of our favourite features of the Great Bath Feast, the Tenner Treat – a huge range of different £10 offers from some of Bath’s most delicious cafes, bars and restaurants. Most offer a full meal for just a tenner and it’s a brilliant excuse to try some new places. We’ve got our eye on Chez Dominique, the Bath Pizza Co and The Abbey Hotel, but there are loads of tempting options to choose from – click here to see the full list.
For a small city, Bath has a huge amount to offer when it comes to eating and drinking, and the Great Bath Feast is a fantastic celebration of local talent.
