Built in the 1790s, with its glittering chandeliers and ornate spa fountain, The Pump Room provides the perfect ambience for special occasions. Menus have been created by Searcys Executive Chef Mark Pearson, utilising the best of seasonal British ingredients in the West Country.

    Dedicated to sustainability, all Searcys menus at both the Assembly Rooms and The Pump Room champion the finest producers from Bath and the surrounding area, including Bakers of Bath, Pensworth Dairies and Bath’s family butcher, Bartlett & Sons. All jams are produced by family–run food producer The Cherry Tree, from Dorset, while the coffee is hand-roasted by Extract Coffee Roasters in Bristol, who source the beans directly from an organic cooperative of farmers in Peru and a pioneering family-run estate in Colombia.

    About The Pump Rooms:

    The Grand Pump Room was built in the early 1790s, and soon became the destination for high society to meet and ‘take the waters’ from the hot springs while enjoying lavish entertainment. Famous authors such as Jane Austen mentioned it in her novels Northanger Abbey and Persuasion, as where “every creature in Bath was to be seen…”. And Mary Shelley wrote the iconic Frankenstein while staying in lodgings next door. Over 200 years later, most of the neo-classical style and Georgian features remain unchanged – creating the perfect ambience in which to enjoy the quintessentially English custom of afternoon tea.
