Sadly, in-line with new Government guidelines, we will be closed from (and including) Thursday 31st December

National Lockdown

It is with great sadness, that in full compliance with Government legistion to reduce the spread of Covid-19, we will be closed from (and including) Thursday 31st December. We will remain closed until we hear otherwise. The Government is reviewing the situation every 2 weeks.

Since re-opening in July we have complied with all Government trading guidelines and as a result have provided a safe environment for both our staff and customers. Rest assured that when we are allowed to re-open that we will continue to ensure that The Charlcombe Inn remains a safe environment for all of us. We will continue with our rigorous cleaning regimes, we will continue to observe hand washing protocols, we will continue to use table ordering and/or our online ordering system, we will continue to take payment by card whenever possible, we will continue to provide table service only, we will continue to take contact details for track and trace and we will continue to use solid screens to protect customers and to separate tables.

We look forward to welcoming you back soon.  Your continued support means so much to us!

Thank you and stay safe.

The team at The Charlcombe Inn


keeping you safe…

Welcome to the Charlcombe Inn

The Charlcombe Inn (formerly The Blathwayt Arms) is a prominent and well known country free house close to Bath with easy road access, ample parking and a large garden overlooking Bath racecourse.

We recently completed an extensive development of our pub which aside from improving the pub and gardens included the addition of ten high quality en-suite guest bedrooms, eight in our stable annexe and two above the pub.  Whilst we will continue to serve great food and an interesting range of drinks the addition of guest bedrooms led us to the decision to rename our business the Charlcombe Inn.  We are proud to be the only pub in the Parish of Charlcombe and have felt for some time that our Parish deserved its own pub.  We are very excited about this project which has been many years in the planning and which will add enormously to our wonderful pub.


We offer an interesting selection of pub classics and an exciting range of specials with all food cooked fresh using locally sourced ingredients. Real ales are always on tap along with an interesting wine list, a selection of premium spirits and great range of alcohol-free drinks.

With the addition of the guest bedrooms we are now open for breakfast and will remain open all day.

Open daily, we also serve coffee and cake in the morning and afternoon. This is a popular spot for walkers and naturally, well-behaved dogs are welcome.

We look forward to welcoming you soon!
Nick, Jo and the Charlcombe Inn Team

To supplement all this is a daily specials board for sharing dishes and rarer treats, depending on what seasonal fare the Head Chef has been able to find. There is also a gluten free menu and a chlildren’s menu.

You can also buy Charlcombe Inn gift cards, a great way to spoil a friend or loved-one. Available in a range of denominations depending on your budget.

Made my father's birthday lunch a real treat

“A really enjoyable experience all round. Good strong Covid measures in place but not in an overwhelming and in-your-face way. Nice menu of lunch options and all the food was very good without exception. Dad’s steak looked immense. I loved my tandoori meal. Beer well kept and tasty. Décor very nice without being ostentatious, so you felt comfortable. One section allowed dogs, so we could bring ours and we met several others. But what made it was the staff. Attentive without being always present, happy to give us some time before we ordered, smiling and chatty throughout. When they found it was Dad’s birthday they wrote “Happy Birthday” in chocolate sauce on his pudding plate. Little touches like that which will ensure we return.”

Fabulous Eat Out to Help Out Monday evening dinner!

“The menu is interesting and unique; every dish we had was beautifully prepared and delicious. Try the Whisky cured Salmon and Watercress, Beetroot and red onion bhaji, Salmon fish cakes, Baileys Choc cheese cake or Sticky toffee pudding! A short but good wine menu. A great evening, also a discovery as we don’t usually go but will be going back.”

Great service and food

“We were very impressed by how well thought out the Covid precautions were in this pub. We were met with a very warm welcome, although we had not booked, and had arrived on a Saturday evening with our dog. We had had a busy day trading at the Antiques Fair at the racecourse, and had popped down for a refreshing drink, but were impressed enough to order dinner. We were shown to a quiet table, our order was taken in good time and water was offered for our dog. Food, drink and service were all very good – we will return next time we are at the Racecourse!”

Friendly and yummy food

“Gorgeous pub and restaurant. We were away with our pooches so had to take them with us. This pub couldn’t have welcomed us and them more. The service was fab and staff warm. The food was amazing as well! Thank you.”

Excellent meal

“Great meal for four adults. Had the fish and chips OMG amazing. Nice environment to eat.”
