Blackthorn _ left this review about The Cosy Club

This has changed hands yet again since my previous review, and is now part of the ever expanding Loungers chain’s Cosy Club brand. Hopefully this will put it on a more solid footing than the previous incumbents. Their Bath branch still seems very popular a couple of years after opening, although it is very much a restaurant as much as a pub.

Decor wise it’s very similar to before with the main difference being lots of seating due to the strong food emphasis here now. A snug at the front was a pleasant spot with leather armchairs, low tables, and some friezes on the wall, and some dark wood panelling. There was a stuffed peacock mounted high up on one wall as well as a few old portraits. China teacups on each table had been pressed in to use as candle holders which coordinated well with the china teapot on the bar counter for staff tips.

We didn’t eat on this occasion, but the menu was extensive and divided in to sections such as Brunch, Paninis, Tapas, Sharing, Burgers and Mains. On the whole these were a step up from your normal pub grub with options such as Hand Picked Crab, Thai Beef Salad and a Beetroot Arancini, whatever that is, with most dishes somewhere in the £10 - £12 range.

The solitary real ale on tap was Ale Rider from the Twisted brewery, although there was also a second pump that appeared to have run out and there was also their own keg Cruiser. Cider’s were Stowford Press and Orchard Pig Reveller.

Blackthorn _ left this review about The Den

One of the many bars in Corn Street to change it’s name every few months, this has previously been known as 31 Corn Street, The Frog & Toad and The Den among others. It’s a cavernous pub, with a very high ceiling and quite open. The walls are all a plain sandy stone, similar to Bath stone, and there are some very substantial stone pillars as well, some with quite ornate carvings on. The roof is also very impressive, having a number of glass domes, lots of intricate gold leaf and carved figures.

The first thing you see when you go in is an old red telephone box just inside the door, but other than that it’s a fairly empty space with some faux leather bench seating curving along the right hand side and a few high tables and stools in the middle. There is some more seating at the rear arranged in to pods, and on a mezzanine level floor is their “VIP Area”. Flooring is mostly parquet wood and at the rear this had blue up lighters recessed in to it. Elsewhere are some tiles. There is a long bar counter on the left with some heavy framed silver mirrors behind it.

It was very quiet on a recent Thursday evening visit, in fact there was nobody else in there so we were outnumbered by the bar staff. If that’s typical then clearly it’s not going to last long in it’s present guise either. The food menu appeared to consist of sharing platters, nachos, fries and burgers with most of the mains being around the £8 - £10 mark. A DJ booth was towards the back corner, although it was not in use when we were there. Perhaps it gets livelier later on or at weekends.

Unfortunately there were no ales on tap at all, real or otherwise, whilst the solitary cider was Thatcher’s Gold. All in all, it’s unlikely to appeal to many of the regulars on this site, but if you’re interested in architecture, it might be worth popping in just to have a look at the impressive roof.
