Budget Bites in Bath!

City breaks are one of the best ways to spend a weekend- but can also be one of the most expensive! Between travel, accommodation and and attraction costs, it can quickly equate to an eye-watering bill- but I'm here to help you save some pennies (or pounds) in your next trip to the beautiful city of Bath.

Bath is a hugely popular city break destination in the South West of England, with over 348,000 visitors throughout the year, making it the 11th most visited town or city in the UK! With it's gorgeous Georgian architecture, rich historic roots and infamous natural hot spa, it's no wonder crowds flock to the city- but the popularity has made prices within the city rise.

So if you have spent all your allocated funds on coffee at the numerous independent cafes, a personalised tour of the Gothic Bath Abbey or a romantic dip in the Thermae spa, here are some super cheap (but still delicious restaurants) to check out!


Chaiwalla is the only West Country Indian to be voted one of the Top 5 Vegan Curry Houses in the UK by Vegan Life Magazine, and it's easy to see why. Keep your eyes peeled, as the little establishment is easily missed, tucked away behind a little green door just off Kingsmead Square. It's take out only, so grab your delicious food and head to the Abbey Courtyard for dinner with a view!
