Our wine shop in Bath is the perfect environment to find, try and buy wine. Our bistro next door serves over thirty wines by the glass, along with selected artisan cheese, charcuterie and Michelin bib-gourmand winning small plates.

Our charming Bath Bistro is a relaxed dining environment perfect for long lunches, sumptuous suppers and the chance to enjoy fantastic wines from our shop. In the summer diners have the opportunity to sample British cheese and charcuterie on our sun filled terrace, overlooking the honey-coloured Bath stone buildings. Chef James Harris and his team create inspired small plates utilising the endless bounty of surrounding Somerset produce. Bar snacks are also available throughout the day, the perfect accompaniment to any glass.

“Ever imagined living another life? it's all too easy when you take refuge in Bath's, grindingly pretty, Beckford Bottle Shop. God, but it's civilised. It's somewhere that you can quiet all the bad thoughts, one well-chosen glass at a time” - Jay Rayner, The Guardian. Feb 2022

Sample food and wine menu


Award winning small plates can be enjoyed at our Bottle Shop along world-class wines, including our very own Claret. Our wine is sourced from all over by the discerning palettes of our teams from award-winning vineyards. We also stock a wide range of spirits from distillers far and wide, alongside bottled cider and craft ale from surrounding brewers.

“Is it a wine shop? Is it a restaurant? Well both! Fantastic seasonal small plates complimented by a selection of wines laid out rather like a library. Some very good bottles available to drink in, with a modest £15 corkage and they will give a discount on wines you take away.” - Guest Review

Our Wine

As an independent wine merchant we seek to source our wines from a wide range of importers as well as directly from the vineyards both within the UK and overseas. This approach allows us the flexibility to list a range that encompasses both known classics as well as exciting new discoveries.
