The Abbey Hotel - Bath
The Abbey Hotel, is independently owned by Ian and Christa Taylor who purchased the property in early 2012.

Food is an important part of the Abbey Hotel experience, The Allium Brasserie is headed up by Chef Patron, Chris Staines one of the UK’s most acclaimed Chef’s. Chris held a Michelin Star for several years whilst heading up Foliage at the Mandarin Oriental and has really made his mark on the South West restaurant scene in the short time he has been in Bath.
The Allium is a relaxed restaurant with a lively ambience, Chris simply loves to create really good food from the best local, seasonal ingredients and has the happy attitude that you are just as welcome if you are lingering over one course as you are if you are indulging in the full gastronomic experience. It’s just about savouring the experience of good food and wine and enjoying the moment.
Allium also happens to have one of the best Terrace areas in the city, open from Spring to late Autumn this is the place to people watch and absorb the ambience of this wonderful city.
The ArtBar and Lounge has become the hub of the hotel, serving morning coffee and croissants, light lunches and stunning afternoon teas, it shares the relaxed vibe of Allium and is a popular meeting point. In the evening our resident mixologist Andrew Fisher changes the dynamics creating a lively bar area serving an exceptional range of spirits and cocktails, he loves to chat and share his knowledge of drinks and is always happy to create something new.
