Flavour

Our Head Chef, Steve Derry has run the Brasserie kitchen for over 14 years. Working closely with Bath’s suppliers, Steve and his team produce our popular Sunday Roast lunch.

Sunday Roast: Beef & Chicken

Regarded as the Rolls Royce choice of the Sunday Toast, our Topside packs fantastic flavour and is our most popular Sunday Roast lunch meat. Sweet and tender, the beef cut is well seasoned with salt and pepper, garlic and rested briefly before being served alongside our Yorkshire pudding and Sunday Roast vegetables. Our Sunday Roast Chicken breast is seasoned lightly with lemon juice, salt and pepper and white wine before being seared on our grill and then cooked through in the oven. Perfect with our seasonal vegetables our Sunday Roast chicken is very popular through the summer months.


Sunday Roast Sides & Seasonal Vegetables

We take roast potatoes very seriously - often the make or break of a Sunday Roast our chefs expertly prepare our potatoes with seasoning, oil and herbs - but lightly enough not to draw attention away from the roast chicken or roast beef. Our carrots are honey glazed and packed with flavour from their thyme, garlic and salt and pepper seasoning.

A huge thank you to our customers who recommended us for these prestigious awards.

February also saw a new partnership for Bath Pizza Co with local Olympian, Ben Fletcher, a partnership that would see the launch of a charity campaign with Bath Mind later in the year.

We also added a fantastic beer to the Brasserie bar: Brooklyn Lager. The American Amber Lager picked up Gold at the 2018 World Beer Cup and is going down very well.

Bath Business Awards Finalist

Bath Business Awards Finalist

Andrew Peters, Green Park Brasserie

Andrew Peters, Green Park Brasserie

Green Park Brasserie Owner, Andrew Peters announced as “Business Person/ Entrepreneur of the Year” finalist at Bath Business Awards 2018.

We’re delighted that owner, Andrew has been recognised for his work in Bath.

Now in their 7th year, the Bath Chronicle Business Awards celebrate business success across the city and surrounding areas. Andrew has been shortlisted alongside 3 others in the city and was surprised to make the finals.

Andrew said: “It’s an honour to be shortlisted for the awards. We feel we’ve been part of a positive few years for the city on our side of town as Bath has grown. Of course, a lot has changed since I first took on the business in 1992 - the city has developed, dining preferences shifted - and the nature of our business has had to adapt with it. As a Bathonian, it' will be wonderful to celebrate with many other Bath businesses at the awards evening.

The Brasserie has become known for its quality food, regular live music and unique setting in the old train station at Green Park, Bath. Over the years the business has picked up glowing reviews and comments from the likes of The Guardian, AOL Travel, Culture Trip and others.

With a unique venue and menu offering, the Brasserie has become a favourite independent restaurant for Bath locals and visitors alike, with a real focus on local produce.

Andrew added: “We’re still proud to support Bath farmers and producers, sourcing some fantastic food and drink from the area, especially the Bath Farmers’ Market (the UK’s very first) which is right on our doorstep every Saturday.”

We’ve continued to grow and taken on new parts of the business with Bath Function Rooms and Bath Pizza Co in recent years too. We’re looking forward to the awards evening next month and celebrating the wonderful businesses in Bath.

Andrew is shortlisted along with David Waldren (The Cake Architect), Victoria Heath (Morgan Maskall Ltd) and Chris Butt (Cognisess). Good luck to all involved with the awards evening!

The people behind the produce

We’re exploring the farm yards and cheese dairies that shape our menus.  We recently met up with Hugh and Celia Gay at Newton Farm, just 3 miles from the Brasserie kitchen.

The South Devons herd at Newton Farm, Bath

Hugh is the 3rd generation of the family to farm at Newton St Loe. Tenants of the Duchy of Cornwall, they farm a beef suckler herd of Pedigree South Devons, Aberdeen Angus and Hereford cattle.

Hugh gets up close and personal with Dave

We’ve been buying cuts of fillet, rump and sirloin steak as well as bacon (for our Brasserie Burger) from Hugh and Celia since 2012 - now some of our most popular menu choices.

The farm is a traditional mixed farm, with cattle, sheep, pigs, grain and lots of luscious grass. Our livestock have the luxury of living outside on our lush pastures during the spring, summer and autumn.
— Hugh Gay, Farmer & Owner, Newton Farm
The Green Park Brasserie team at Newton Farm, Bath

The Green Park Brasserie team at Newton Farm, Bath

The Newton Farm livestock have the luxury of living outside where Hugh and Celia breed their own calves who then stay with their mothers for 8-9 months and live on the farm all of their lives. The pasture is in the Higher Level Stewardship scheme, which means no chemical fertilisers or pesticides can be used. The land is full of planted fields with British wild flowers and over 200 trees.

It’s fantastic for us to see exactly where we’re buying from - especially for our chefs. We’ve bought locally since we opened in 1992 and pride ourselves on our food, based on the quality of our local producers and the skill of our chefs.

Supported local projects. We're pleased to be at the heart of Green Park on the west side of Bath city centre.

Green Park Station then and now

A thriving hub of independent traders, market stall holders and artisan products, Green Park Station is now home to Bath's indie community. We recently stumbled upon some old images of the former railway station during its in-between years, from its decommission in the late 1960s and it the redevelopment in the 1980's.

'Bath Green Park' Station was originally known as Queen Square - the square still some 500 metres from the station. Green Park Station was opened in 1870 and acted as the terminus of Midland Railway's Mangotsfield and Bath Branch Line.

Architect John Holloway Sanders designed the station buildings which have since been renovated after the station was decommissioned and the last passenger train left Green Park in 1966 following the Beeching Report.

With the last goods train leaving the station in 1971 it wasn't until the 1980s when the space was redeveloped and Sainburys Green Park store opened in December 1982.

11 things to do when visiting Bath

Visiting Bath: 11 'must do' places & activities

Bath is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the UK and Europe. While there are hundreds of guides to visiting Bath, we've compiled our guide with 11 of the 'must do' places to see and activities to do in Bath. 

visit-bath-green-park-brasserie

1. Bath Skyline

Bath's skyline trail is one of the most best ways to take in the city. Not only does the walk take in the beauty of Bath from different angles, it also gives visitors a perspective and appreciation for the size and geography of the city. The 10km route can be picked up and multiple points from Bath city centre. Our favourite point would be the view across the city centre from Bathwick Fields halfway up Bathwick Hill. 

Screen Shot 2017-01-21 at 15.09.05.png

2. Bath Rugby at The Rec

Rugby in Bath is like sport in no other city. With a rugby ground slap bang in the heart of the city with views back across to Bath Abbey and the city, the atmosphere in Bath town centre is unlike no other on match day. The Recreation Ground is nestled against the River Avon with views stretching up to the green hills that create the valley of the city centre. Possibly the most picturesque sports ground in the world, soak up the atmosphere of a match at the Rec, before soaking up a few drinks in one of Bath's pubs and bars. 

bath-abbey-tower-tour-bath-visit.jpeg

3. Bath Abbey Tower Tour

If you're not a fan of heights you might be better off enjoying the Abbey interior, however, the Bath Abbey Tower Tour offers outstanding panoramic views across Bath city centre. Make sure you bring your camera! 

visit-bath-royal-crescent-green-park-brasserie

4. Georgian Architecture Tour: Royal Crescent & Circus

Guide yourself slightly out of Bath's shopping streets from the top of Milsom Street and onto Gay Street. From here you'll join the Circus, one of Bath's architectural gems. After taking in the 360 degree triumph of John Wood (both Senior and Junior) head onto Brock Street (first left off the Circus). 250 yards along here and you'll join the world famous Royal Crescent, however,  before hand enjoy the eclectic independent shops and galleries along Margaret's Buildings - especially Bath Old Books shop at the top end of the street. From here you can walk along to the Royal Crescent and take in another of Bath's best know architectures. The green space between the Crescent and Royal Avenue is a fantastic spot in the summer months for picnics, ball games and taking in the views.

5. Spa Time: Bath Thermae Spa & The Roman Baths

The poster girl of many billboards and advertising spreads for Bath, the Bath Thermae Spa (below and lead image) is relatively new to the city, compared to the Roman Baths (above) whose hot water's have been bubbling away for thousands of years.

bath-thermae-spa-visit-bath-guide

Page lead image: Photo Philip Edwards / Bath Thermae Spa. Above image: Photo: Matt Cardy / Bath Thermae Spa

Bath Thermae Spa opened their doors in 2006 and have become one of the top attractions in Bath. Taking in views of Bath Abbey and the surrounding cityscape, the roof top pool is the headline act at Bath Thermae Spa. The Spa also has different spa pools including the open air roof top pool and Minerva Baths, as well as the Aroma Steam Rooms and additional treatments available to visitors. 

visit-bath-prior-park-green-park-brasserie.jpeg

6. Prior Park, National Trust

Slopping gardens, soaring views and a Palladien architecture masterclass, Prior Park is a Bath visitor spot not to miss. Run and managed by the National Trust, the grounds are accessible from the city centre if you're not afraid of a bit of a climb. The grounds are nestled between the steeping Ralph Allen Drive and Widcombe hill side, so the site is no flat to explore. However the tea room and Palladien bridge and ponds are on the flat for those accessing the site from the lower entrance. Prior Park Landscape Gardens link up with the Bath Skyline walk so you can build this into your trail.

bath-farmers-market-green-park-visit-bath

7. Bath Farmers' Market

Hosted in the artisan Green Park Station, the Bath Farmers' Market runs every Saturday from 8am - 1.30pm. Farmers, cheese makers, bread bakers, local cider makers and free from cake bakers all attend this incredibly popular local farmers' market. You'll also find local venison steaks, local apple juice, local butchers and vegetable farmers all pitching up. 

farmers-market-visit-bath
farmers-market-in-bath-visit-bath

Our Farmers' Breakfast is available on Saturdays with fresh produce sourced from the market that very morning. If you're not into sausage, bacon and eggs, then our Farmers' Market wood fired pizzas from our sister business Bath Pizza Company might take your fancy.

bath-canal-routes-visit-bath.jpeg

8. Bath's Canals and Waterways

Bath's most undersold asset, the canals that link the Bath to the hamlets, villages and towns that surround it are ideal for walkers, bikers and those with access to kayaks or barges.

Picking up the canal from Widcombe (a stones thrown from Bath Spa Railway Station) the 3 mile canal stretch to Bathampton to take in the fields and village surroundings as you leave the city is one not to miss - especially in the summer months. The George at Bathampton is the perfect incentive to get on the canal path. Cold ciders on the canal banks at the picturesque bridge at Bathampton is right up there with the more high profile Bath "must do's". Bath Canal is also accessible from Sydney Gardens behind the Holbourne Museum on Great Pulteney Street.

bath-weird-green-park-brasserie.jpeg

9. Parade Gardens & Bath Weir on the River Avon

The entrance to Parade Gardens can be found just off Orange Grove next to Bath Abbey - opposite the Garfunkel's restaurant. Another fantastic summer location for sunbathing, playing in the gardens and live music on the bandstand, Parade Gardens also has great views at water level looking up to the weir and Pulteney Bridge. Small entrance fee for non-residents.

10. Bath's Hidden Squares and Cobbled Streets

Only five to ten minutes from the busy shopping streets of Bath town centre are a collection of hidden squares and streets. Home to many local residents and some holiday apartments (get your hands on one if you can) these quiet yet central parts of Bath are worth exploring for their architecture and some with antique shops. 

Places to explore - 5 to 10 mins walk from Bath city centre:  

•  St James' Square, St James' Wine Vaults

•  Margaret's Buildings, Catherine Place, Rivers Street & Rivers Street Mews

•  Russell Street & Circus Place

•  Queen Square (more central and often with events and markets)

If you're feeling a little more adventurous - 15 mins walk from Bath city centre:

•  Lansdown Crescent, Somerset Crescent

•  Cavendish Road, Cavendish Crescent

Norfolk Crescent, Great Stanhope Street

11. Horse Racing at Bath Racecourse, Lansdown

With a newly built roof terrace boasting impressive views of the course, horse racing in Bath at Lansdown is a wonderful afternoon out just ten minutes drive from Bath city centre. Packed with local ciders and ales racing outside of the city makes for a welcome break from the business of the city centre on weekends. Mid week meets for a more low key affair are certainly worth a visit.
