The Great Bath Taste Trail designed to entice us all
The Great Bath Feast wants to put the city's food businesses on the map with the Great Bath Taste Trail.
The trail takes food lovers around 23 delicatessens, restaurants and cafes, from The Fudge Factory and the Tasting Room to the Marlborough Tavern, where they can call in for free samples.
Cheese lovers will not want to miss a chance to visit The Fine Cheese Company in Walcot Street with its 150 different varieties of cheese on offer.
The cheesemonger, which has been in the city for more than 20 years, is an Aladdin's cave for any cheese connoisseur.

Owner Ann-Marie Dyas said: "The nice thing about this sort of shop is anyone can come in, from people who just like a bit of cheddar to someone catering for a party – whatever their cheese needs, we want people to feel welcome."
As well as being part of the Taste Trail, the firm is also organising a cheese festival to be held in Milsom Place on Saturday, October 27.
Ms Dyas said British cheese had a lot to offer and the festival would be a great showcase for local producers.
She said: "Real cheese is homemade and uses the best milk from the farm and doesn't sacrifice quality for profit."
Also on the Taste Trail is Chandos Deli on George Street run by Henry Hunton.
To celebrate its use of local producers the deli has arranged that throughout October different suppliers will host tasting sessions including Hobbs House Bakery, Bath Soft Cheese and Bath Ales.
Mr Hunton, who has run the deli for 11 years, said the Great Bath Feast was an excellent opportunity for the city to show what it has to offer.
He said: "I think it's got real potential to be something quite spectacular.
"For years there was nowhere to get a good cup of coffee but now there are lots of places and that's good because everyone steps up their game.
"People are a lot more discerning these days – they know what they like and it keeps us on our toes."
