Last Saturday Mark and I went to the theatre! We got vouchers from Mum & Dad for Christmas and booked to see And Then There Were None at the Theatre Royal in Bath. It was a glorious sunny day and as we were going to the matinee performance, we got to Bath just after lunch and made our leisurely way to the theatre by way of Flan O’Brien’s fine drinking establishment. The play itself was excellent. Neither of us had been to see a straight play before (having seen pantomime, musicals and Bryher’s musical performance) and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.
Afterwards we were planning to go for a meal but had no fixed idea about where we might end up. Avoiding the crowds we walked up the back streets, past the gin bar, past the Raven and up towards the Salamander. Then we spotted the Firehouse Rotisserie. It wasn’t too busy and the menu looked nice so we went in. We sat in the window, funnily enough on the table next to one of the actors from the play we had just watched (Colin Buchanan of Dalziel & Pascoe fame). The service was excellent and we were soon furnished with Prosecco (me) and Peroni (Mark). Despite a tempting array of Rotisserie & Grill options, we both opted for brick-fired pizza. I had the Prosciutto, Mozzarella & Rocket and Mark went for Spicy Barbecue Chicken, Roasted Peppers, Shaved Red Onion, Smoked Cheddar and Coriander but without the Coriander. We ordered a side of sweet potato fries.
The food was swiftly produced and Oh.My.Word it was bloody gorgeous! The dough was soft and pillowy without being too much or too heavy. The toppings were delicious. The fries were spectacularly crispy – much better than I’ve ever managed. The portions didn’t look huge but I didn’t manage to finish mine.
It was an excellent experience and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it as a venue. I’ll definitely go here again.
