Dinners & Receptions at the Roman Baths & Pump Room

The iconic and award-winning Roman Baths and Pump Room is the perfect venue for drinks receptions and dinners.

At the heart of the World Heritage city of Bath, the Roman Baths & Pump Room have always been at the social heart of the city, and continue to be a centre of hospitality and entertainment. If you are looking to wow your guests, choosing this venue is a sure bet. History, atmosphere and the great service we offer ensure that events here are memorable and rewarding.  There are different areas within the building that can be used independently or the whole complex can be hired.

At the Roman Baths and Pump Room we have contracted caterers, Searcys. They are also resident at the Gherkin London, Blenheim Palace and St Pancras International Station. Their innovative and varied catering concepts, along with fresh food and great ingredients are the perfect complement to our stunning venues.

Roman Baths

Up to 300 guests for a drinks reception
Available from 7pm, from September to June
From £1050 inc. VAT

After the visitor attraction closes; the Roman Baths become a tranquil and otherworldly location for drinks and canapés. Your guests can socialise and relax beside the Great Bath, standing on the ancient paving and absorbing the history of this vast ruin. Although outdoors, the venue is sheltered from the elements, and in winter the steam from the thermal waters is at its most spectacular. The Roman Baths may be hired for stand-alone drinks receptions, or prior to a dinner or party in the Pump Room, Terrace or Reception Hall.
