The Ivy Collection is delighted to announce the opening of The Ivy Bath Brasserie in Autumn 2017. Located within the heart of the World Heritage City of Bath, the restaurant will offer sophisticated and friendly all-day dining to both residents and visitors alike. Situated on popular Milsom Street, The Ivy Bath Brasserie will be within close proximity to many of the city’s most famous destinations and iconic landmarks including the Roman Baths, Bath Abbey, The Assembly Rooms and Bath Rugby Club.
The Ivy Bath Brasserie follows the opening of sister-restaurant, The Ivy Clifton Brasserie (Bristol), and will be a new addition to The Ivy Collection. The Ivy Collection is a group of neighbourhood restaurants, brasseries and cafés established in London, originating with the iconic Ivy, West Street 100 years ago, and offers accessible, all-day dining in a relaxed, local setting.
In the beautiful Georgian building, previously occupied by Natwest, The Ivy Bath Brasserie will retain the striking high ceilings and original features of the old banking hall that spans across two floors. With a bar situated on each floor and interiors designed by Martin Brudnizki Design Studio, the restaurant will offer guests the opportunity to initially dine in the ground floor brasserie, with the first floor brasserie and the al fresco terrace opening spring next year.
Open seven days a week, The Ivy Bath Brasserie will feature an all-encompassing menu, serving modern British classics from dawn until dusk, including breakfast, elevenses, weekend brunch, lunch, afternoon tea, light snacks, dinner and cocktails taken from a bespoke drinks menu. The kitchen will be overseen by Executive Chef Sean Burbidge, whilst the restaurant’s menu will incorporate a selection of Ivy classics, including shepherd’s pie, eggs Benedict and the iconic chocolate bomb with hot salted caramel sauce.
The Ivy Bath Brasserie will be accessible and relaxed, holding back a proportion of tables for walk-ins, allowing locals and vistors to drop in throughout the day. Whether visiting for a leisurely breakfast, working lunch, cocktails with friends, or a three-course dinner, The Ivy Bath Brasserie adds to the charm of the already iconic city of Bath.

I am a big believer in nurturing and cultivating young talent and enthusiasm in the hospitality industry. I often take on apprentice chefs in my brigade, and work hard with them to progress and develop them as young chefs, to help them to build a successful career for the future. I am always striving to achieve more, and although I have already had a very successful career I still look to push myself and my loyal brigade further to reach our fullest potential.
In 2012 my passion for Fine Dining saw me move back to the luxury hotel market when I became Head Chef at Ston Easton Park, a luxury hotel in Somerset. I am working hard, along with the team at Ston Easton, to regain the coverted 3rd AA Rosette, with the last two AA inspections generating extremely positive results the 3rd rosette should hopefully become a reality in the not too distant future.

Martin Blake of Homewood Park has scooped Best Chef at the Somerset Life Awards 2014.
Somerset hosts an abundance of excellent eateries. If you are familiar with the area this will come as no surprise; bordering places like Devon, Gloucestershire and Bristol, all well known as havens for food lovers, Somerset more than manages to compete. The result of this is a competitive market and yearly award ceremony hosted by Somerset Life magazine, championing and highlighting the industry offerings of the area.
With a number of great contenders in each category, Homewood Park found themselves competing for two awards: Best Chef and Best Restaurant. The competition was tight with a number of great chefs, such as Brett Sutton at The White Post and Kaan Atasoy at The Globe Milverton, but Martin Blake of Homewood Park really stood out.
“ I wasn't expecting to win the award so was a bit lost for words when I made my little speech. So proud to win especially as I'm a Somerset boy! I owe it to everyone who has supported me throughout my career and to the kitchen team who deserve it as much as me and also to our lovely hotel guests that have supported us and voted our restaurant and myself to pick up an award at this event.”
- Martin Blake
Somerset boy Blake, now 25, gained experience as a Chef de Partie and has previously worked for The Bath Priory, returning to Homewood Park 18 months ago. This experience helped established his career and he’s received some great assistance under Homewood Park’s Head Chef, Wojciech Nawalka.
The Coconut Parfait is Blake’s current favourite on the menu, as he believes it has real “wow factor and beauty, with the flavours and textures all complementing each other a dream”. Blake was also especially complimentary about the guests at Homewood, in addition to all the other staff members.
We wish Blake the best of luck for his next ceremony - he’s up for South West Chef of the Year, held in Exeter in October.
