Blackthorn _ left this review about The Grapes

A traditional pub just off Bath’s main shopping street, that in spite of this seems to be bypassed by the hordes of tourists even on a busy Saturday afternoon, and was populated by a collection of locals who mostly seemed to know each other. Predominantly the clientele seemed to be “old boys” although there were a few others characters as well.

The interior is somewhat down at heel and quite traditional, with black beams on the ceiling, mostly carpeting on the floor with a little wood around the bar area, and the paintwork was a mixture of cream, salmon, mustard and burgundy. A section of exposed stone wall on the left appeared to contain the remnants of an old fire-place, with just part of the original mantelpiece being visible in amongst the stonework. Sport seems to feature predominantly here, and I counted no less than four plasma screens as well as an old TV dotted around what is a fairly small pub. Rugby appears to be the main theme here, and there were numerous notices displaying the month’s matches that would be screened. On previous occasions it’s been quite packed when walking past, but this time it was rather quiet. Perhaps there were no major fixtures on at that time.

The menu proclaimed that they did “The best food in town” but with prices for most of the main courses appearing to be somewhere in the £3 - £5 price bracket, I’m inclined to treat that with a degree of scepticism. Choice wise, it looked to be extensive and was divided in to sections such as Pub favourites, Grills, Burgers, Wraps, etc. Tables were a little squashed in to the point that it was actually quite difficult to get in and out many of the chairs due to adjacent chairs and tables being in the way.

Beers on tap were an unusual choice with Stonehenge Autumn Envy, Okells Aile and Inveralmond’s Lia Fail. The ciders were Blackthorn and Strongbow.
