Our Favourite Haunts: Bath
In 2016, G&G HQ upped sticks and moved from West London to the beautiful city of Bath. This was followed by the opening of our first store outside London in Bath’s vibrant artisan quarter on Walcot Street. If you’re planning a trip West, Bath is a great place to visit and is brimming with independent and interior shops. Our lovely team in store and at G&G HQ have shared their favourite local haunts…
A short drive outside the city centre, Castle Farm is a firm G&G favourite. Run by a delightful husband and wife duo, the café and restaurant are set on an organic farm a stone’s throw from Midford Castle. Serving seasonal food often grown in their own garden, the pizzas are a must-have when visiting. Their weekly supper clubs are also one of the best in the city, but it books up quickly so be sure to plan your visit in advance.
An independent bookshop not far from Walcot Street, Toppings & Co carries a versatile selection of reads including exclusive first editions and signed copies of many of its books. The perfect visiting spot for any avid reader, we recommend planning your visit around one of their many literary events and evenings, especially if your favourite author is in town.

Our newest neighbour on Walcot Street, quality food is as the core of Landrace Bakery. Specialising in the craft of bread from UK grown and stoneground grain, this is the place to visit for ‘best bacon sandwich’ in Bath, and they also offer great cinnamon buns for those with a sweet tooth!
Located in the bustling Kingsmead Square, Grace & Ted is a vintage boutique run by a mother-daughter duo. If you’re planning an afternoon of shopping, Grace & Ted perfectly offsets the mundane high street and is truly an Aladdin’s Cave of one-off second-hand affordable luxury fashion and accessories.

No trip to Bath is complete without stopping by one of Boston Tea Party’s cafés. A fuss-free good food café with ethical values at its core, it has a ‘make things better’ attitude and was the first café to ban single-use coffee cups. Our favourite outpost is their bright and airy space on Alfred Street, we recommend visiting bright and early before the hubbub of café goers flock in for the day. Click here to plan your visit.
