We popped in here for a couple of drinks whilst exploring Bath. It's a nice place for friends to catch up. Due to its proximity to bath uni it does have a student vibe but it was still nice. The staff were very enthusiastic and super friendly which really added to my scoring of the place. Decor was pretty cool.... More

Arranged for lots of people to get together and Jonny at the Cork was really helpful with organising the area, food etc. Challenge as some wanted to eat and some not....this was helped by them arranging an area which was near the bar so although people were eating we were not cut off from the others. When we were there... More

This was the second time we have held our gym Christmas social at the Cork and it won't be the last. We hire out the back room on the lower level which is a really good size, has ample seating and super close to the bar. It was a very busy night for the staff and they were very efficient... More

We booked our Christmas party here as we had it last year at this venue and we really enjoyed it. This year the food took forever to be served and the beef that we had was mostly fat and not good meat. We will not be going there again next year as it was below average

Really nice pics with a great atmosphere! Bar man suggested tasting a beer before committing to a full pint which was a nice touch. We sat in the window and watched the world go by while being tempted by the menu which looked simple classic trendy pub food. We will return next time we visit this amazing city!

Came here to watch the football one night while visiting Bath. It was relatively busy but we had no problem getting a table with a good view of a TV. Would visit again if back in the city.

Had a nice time in this pub. Would have given higher rating but football was on and there were people taking up seats who had long finished their drinks , while others of us had crap seats while drinking. Also price of wine £7.20 was too high.

Me and my boyfriend visited this bar on a Sunday afternoon to watch the football. There was a great atmosphere and a few TV's to look at also. It was a busy time, there was only one bar staff member and she was rushed of her feet but done well to serve us quickly. We ordered some nachos which were... More

The building where The Cork is, was historically a 'debtors' prison, and renovations have left the stunning Bath sandstone exposed. Comprising of two bars, two vaulted party pod booths, a conservatory and a large al fresco terrace area. The Cork offers an ideal location to socialise, relax, watch live sport or have a full on party! A full, varied range of wines, cocktails, hot beverages, real ales, cider, craft beers, plus an extensive list of whiskies, Bourbons and rums really make The Cork one of the places to visit in the UK. With a theme of fun fun and fun, The Cork has two Party Pods that can be hired for karaoke or live sports or to play your own music. A function area is available for larger parties too. Expect to see and listen to DJs, live bands, comedy acts and magicians, not to mention their own fun and games including the legendary Sunday night pub quiz. The food is fun too. All prepared on site, the hand crafted burgers, chili hot dogs, nachos and huge hand cut chips are legendary in Bath.
