Blackthorn _ left this review about The Grapes

Recently re-opened after being closed for a number of years, this is much improved from it’s previous incarnation when it was looking a little down at heel and clearly past it’s best.

Internally it’s one long, open plan room with a temporary seating area in the closed off road outside and a courtyard garden at the rear, although we did not investigate this. Flooring is all some type of wood, with smooth planks at the front and some more elaborate parquet style at the rear, and there were more dark wooden boards cladding the wall at the rear giving something of a rustic feel. This was added to by some chunky, roughly sawn wooden benches, whilst further seating was proved by what looked to be an old bus seat as well as more regular chairs and stools at the bar. Some colourful artwork was on the walls. Lighting was mostly exposed filament bulbs with some industrial style steel conduit around the walls and ceiling.

Beers on tap were Yeovil Ale’s Summerset and Box Steam’s Tunnel Vision, whilst the ciders were well represented with Harry’s Mango & Lime, Iford and Honey’s Midford. If gin is more your thing, there was a good selection of unusual choices, which the friendly barmaid happily went through with Mrs B who ended up with a marmalade one which was pronounced very nice. Overall, I really liked it in here and thought it a great improvement.

Now reopened a few months ago after a two year closure, It felt a little more modern bar than traditional pub to me. The ninth pub of my day in Bath so at this stage my notes were somewhat vague. there are four handpumps, I dis-remember the beers but there couldn't have been anything that particularly jumped out at me as I went keg, Bristol Beer Factory Milk Stout which was very good. There was a good buzz about the pub and certainly worth calling in.
