The café is close to the centre of Bath on the "shop" side of Royal Victoria Park and close to the Royal Crescent. Its thus centrally located and affords pleasant views overlooking a bowling green and parts of Bath. It's spacious with a good selection of sensibly priced food and drink- cakes, baked potatoes, pasties, paninis, coffees, teas etc. Unlike... More

After some winter sunshine and lots of playing in the park, we decided to stop at this café for some lunch. I was a little sceptical as the Ice rink was busy and the Christmas holidays still in full swing. However I couldn't have been more wrong...the choice of menu was fantastic and there were plenty of places to sit.... More

After a long walk in Royal Victoria Park it was good to stop and relax in Royal Pavilion Cafe. We had hot chocolate, green tea and an apple pie which was average. But what matters is the cozy atmosphere and the beautiful view after a long walk.

This is a nice little cafe, well positioned overlooking the mini-golf, tennis courts and, as its Winter, the outdoor ice-rink. The coffee was good, if a bit expensive, and the lads behind the counter are courteous, friendly and efficient. So, why the title? Well, three things really. To use the loos, you need to get a token from behind the... More

Found this cafe when returning to the City Centre from Royal Crescent. Nice staff, good selection of cakes/snacks. Good views and a lovely atmosphere. A good place to rest up for refreshments when exploring Bath.

This cafe is at the city end of Victoria Park. A basic menu of soups, sandwiches and jacket potatoes. The food was good quality and whilst not cheap, was reasonably priced by Bath standards. Staff were friendly and professional. The cafe is a pleasant space overlooking the edge of the city - we visited on a Monday afternoon and it... More

WOW! This place astonished me when entered! The restaurant has a spactacular view over the tennis courts and mini golf. If you go there on a Sunday, until two pm, they serve the best roast dinners in bath. I recommend anybody who is looking for a peaceful cafe or a fabulous roast should come here

Popped in for coffee while walking along Royal Ave on the way to the park on a sunny day. We found an echoey canteen with no atmosphere and tables with the last customer's plates still on them. Cafeteria service which is fair enough but a large staff tips tray prominently displayed by the till, cheeky so and so's. Outside on... More
