Bath time (part 2)

After a wonderful Saturday we started our Sunday with my all-time favourite meal – brunch. We decided to go to the Wild Cafe.

I ordered my brunch staple, eggs benedict (delicious).

And Alex went for the Full English (which had the delightful addition of black pudding).

Nice and full, we were ready for another day of exploring the city. Sadly the weather had other ideas. It literally rained ALL DAY.  We decided to escape the weather by ducking into Colonna & Smalls for a coffee (tea for me!).

Just like Alex, these guys take their coffee VERY seriously.

I take my tea very seriously too. Although I do add two sugars to EVERY cup.

Despite the horrendous weather, we bravely window shopped. I even managed to buy two Christmas presents – win. We spent a large amount of time in Alex’s favourite shop. Simply called Kitchens, this place stocks everything you could ever need for your kitchen. They even had an avocado slicer!

The rain was unrelenting, so we threw in the (damp) towel and headed to Bath’s newest (and only) craft beer venue, the Bath Brew House.

We grabbed a comfy bench and settled down with a game of Junior Scrabble.

Whilst I sipped on a warming glass of red, Alex decided to try a trio of ales, including their house brew, Gladiator (which went down a treat!).

Then we settled down for some hearty grub. Alex had roast beef and Yorkshire puds.

And I was virtuous (sort of) and had the chopped salad. This was one of the best salads I’ve ever had, made even more delicious by the amazingly thick honey dressing. Any salad involving halloumi is a winner in my eyes.

After dinner, we returned to our game of Junior Scrabble, which was getting pretty intense. It was very close, but sadly I was defeated.

Sadly it was almost time to catch our train back to London. We paid a visit to Waitrose to pick up some dinner and train snacks, then had a mad dash to get to the station on time (I almost died of running). We travelled back to London amid the faint aroma of Camembert (poor choice, in hindsight), reminiscing on our fantastic weekend.

Thank you Bath, as always, you didn’t disappoint. Although the weather could have been better. Please remedy that next year.
