Customer review:-

As a lost tourist in May/2017, I found myself at the Bath Ale House in my time of need. The lovely lady with a warm smile behind the counter assured me that I was where I was supposed to be and helped me calm my nerves with a lovely glass of the local ale from the basement. My visit was short, but still long enough to take in a bit of the friendly atmosphere. I hope to see you again.  Thank you. Cynthia Gray USA  10/10
