Bath Ales to open its largest pub to date in Bath

Brewer Bath Ales is set to open its largest pub, and its 11th overall, in central Bath.

The 5,000sq ft venue next to Bath Spa train station is double the size of any of the South-west brewer's other pubs.

The company plans to open the venue as Graze Bar, Brewery and Chophouse, before Christmas. It is the third Graze venue to have been opened by the company - the other two are in Bristol and Cirencester.

Robin Couling, Bath Ales' retail director, said: "This is a really exciting development for us. The existing Graze locations in Bristol and Cirencester have been fantastically well received and with a central location attracting both visitors and residents we are confident that Graze will be a welcome addition to the city of Bath."

The newest site is part of a new food quarter as part of the final phase of a £360m shopping centre development being built around the arches of the 19th century railway station.

Bath Ales' new bar and restaurant will take up the entire first floor and has two large outside areas for alfresco dining. When opened there will be capacity for about 140 diners.

In addition it will have a large open plan kitchen, a meat hanging room and a small micro-brewery producing specialist craft beers.
