Comptoir Libanais is one of the best places to eat in SouthGate, serving up bold and beautiful flavours from the Middle East. Often cited as one of the world's healthiest cuisines and with plenty of vegetarian options, Lebanese dishes typically use an abundance of fresh fruit and vegetables as well as herbs, lemon juice and spices rather than heavy sauces. The Comptoir Libanais menu stays true to this tradition, with a mix of mezze, salads, dips, soup and warm wraps as well as a selection of pastries and freshly prepared breads.

 

5. Sample the menu at Giraffe

If you’ve missed movie mate dates, it’s time to head to the Bath Tivoli cinema to catch the latest releases. Recently voted one of the most beautiful cinemas in the world by TimeOut magazine, Tivoli is a new cinema concept offering super-luxurious extra-wide sofas and four small, intimate screens. It’s the perfect way for discerning film lovers to wind down and relax. There’s also the brilliant Tivoli café, serving a seasonal menu of small plates, sharing platters, gourmet burgers, and freshly prepared hand-stretched pizzas, all made with locally sourced ingredients. It’s always best to book tickets in advance to avoid disappointment.

Our stores are open until 6 pm Friday-Wednesday and until 7 pm on Thursdays, and our cinema, restaurants and bars are open late, however, we’d always recommend checking with them directly before setting off to be sure.

There are some big summer releases this year including Top Gun Maverick, Jurassic World and Thor: Love and Thunder.
