Built in 1856, The Bath Hotel at the corner of The Parade and Queen Street offers not only pub food but a variety of dishes that draw from various cuisines. Specials are available for those who desire a bit of variety.

One of the dishes that draw from international cuisine, the Chicken Larb Salad had enough chicken to make eating the dish a satisfying experience. The iceberg lettuce and Asian salad were crisp and fresh. Mint leaves added a refreshing flavour, and a crunchy element was provided by crushed peanuts and fried shallots. While the salad included siracha sauce, it was not too hot.

The hotel’s take on Meat Lovers Pizza, their Barossa Meats Pizza had bacon that had a delectable smoky taste, and a hint of spiciness provided by chorizo. Strips of chicken added a meaty texture and the crust was of the thin variety with a taste that indicated the pizza was baked in a wood-fried oven. Rather than wedges, the pizza was cut into squares.

The beef patty in the Beef Burger was juicy with a nice degree of charred flavour. The tangy pickles complemented the beef patty nicely and a crunchy element was provided by onion rings. Completing the burger was bacon and enough Kewpie mayonnaise to ensure the burger was not dry. Served with the burger were fluffy chips fried to golden brown. We were able to request for the cheese to be served on the side.

A unique aspect of the Hot Pizza was the use of n’djua, an Italian soft pork sausage, which gave the dish a distinctive spicy taste. Extra heat was provided by chilli and pepperoni. Confit garlic imparted a garlicky flavour to the pizza. In addition to salty olives, basil leaves were scattered over the pizza to add its characteristic herby flavour.

Their Chicken Wings were of a large size with flesh easy to eat off the bones. The spiciness of the Franks hot sauce coating them is suitable for most tastes. The sauce had a background sour taste. Aioli was served with the wings to soothe the spiciness of the hot sauce.

There were sufficient salad greens in the Garden Salad to make eating the dish a satisfying experience. A change of texture was provided by red onions, cucumber and cherry tomatoes. The dressing gave the salad a tangy flavour and olives added a salty element. Like the Beef Burger, we were able to have the feta cheese served on the side.

The decor of the hotel gave it a cosy feel and there is a good amount of seating space. Some of the special deals are $15 Taco Tuesdays and $17 Schnitzel Thursdays.
