As I promised yesterday in my post about the Roman Baths in Bath, today I’m sharing photos from the Pump Room where we ordered a full tea for a late lunch. The tour of the Roman Baths finishes in the Pump Room. The Pump Room, now a restaurant, was featured in Persuasion and Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen (not to mention countless Regency novels). Travel websites and books recommend the traditional English tea at the Pump Room — a historic setting, a good spread, and cheaper than taking tea in London.
The famous Beau Nash presides over the Pump Room, even now.
The Georgian architecture provides the perfect ambiance for tea.
