Brigit's Bakery: Bath Bakery Afternoon Tea

Are you planning a trip to Bath this spring or summer? As the weather gets nicer and the days get longer, why not take the opportunity to visit the amazing city of Bath? Whether you go for the day or make it a weekend trip, once you’ve stepped back in time and visited the Roman Baths, the Royal Crescent, The Circus, and the Jane Austen Centre, you’ve got to add a stop to our B Bakery’s Tea Room in Bath. Take a leisurely walk along Pulteney Bridge, and you can’t miss the relaxing sanctuary that is our Brigit’s Bakery, with its fabulous terrace overlooking the River Avon. Come for breakfast, lunch, or afternoon tea, and our beautiful tea room (and the amazing food we serve) won’t disappoint you!

What is the B Bakery tea room in Bath like? 

Brigit’s Bakery opened its door to serve afternoon tea in Bath a couple of years ago (in the summer of 2017) after seven successful years in Covent Garden, London. In Bath, you’ll find the B Bakery tea room on the side of Pulteney Bridge, overlooking the water and river. It’s a beautiful spot to relax and enjoy a sumptuous afternoon tea (with a French twist) as you take in the stunning scenery. Come on a sunny day, and you can sip your tea outdoors on the terrace – pure bliss. But don’t worry, if it’s still a bit chilly, you’ll still be able to enjoy the spectacular views from inside the bakery, thanks to its elegant arched windows.

Inside, our beautiful tea room boasts stunning wooden flooring throughout and modern spotlights on the ceiling that helps us achieve a modern and contemporary look while giving you a cosy and welcoming feel. Our tailor-made, French-inspired feminine illustrations decorate and embellish all the walls and turn our bakery into a real treat for the eyes. We serve our tea (and sugar) in mismatched, pretty China which gives the place a touch of character and quirkiness that we’re extremely proud of and we know you won’t find anywhere else. We also have comfy benches with more mismatched cushions to help you relax and feel at home.
