Today’s the day. We’re doing it.
WE’RE LAUNCHING IN BATH.
If you’re lucky enough to walk past Green Park Station around 2pm, you may well see us enthusiastically handing out flyers and screaming the words ‘FREE PIZZA’.
Yup, you heard right. As we’re so damn excited for launch day – we’re teaming up with Pizza Bike and offering you lucky people (with the CityMunch app of course) a slice of free pizza to celebrate. So don’t be shy. Come on down and grab a slice of the action. Here’s the Facebook event to prove we’re not lying.
So we’re launching in Bath. So what?
We’re on a mission to repeat the success we’ve had in London and Bristol, and become the must-have app for Bath foodies wanting to explore their local independent restaurant scene without breaking the bank.
We feel yourJu pain. We know how damn right expensive eating out is these days. But fear not lovely people of Bath, with CityMunch you’ll be able to get exclusive discount vouchers straight to your phone, at the tap of a button.
What makes this possible is the real-time nature of our offers. Ever walked past a restaurant and thought – “jeez, that looks pretty dead”? Yep, we all have. No restaurant is ever as full as it would like to be all the time. But with CityMunch, restaurateurs can publish offers for times that suit them, keeping kitchens buzzing and helping reduce food waste. So not only will you be saving cash, you’ll be helping out your local restaurants owners. Win, win (they might even fist pump you).
In the words of our founder Rob – “The food scene in Bath is something we can really support. In an industry where national chains still dominate, we’re putting cutting edge tech in the hands of local independents and giving foodies the chance to try new places out without worrying about their wallets.” Word.
Without further ado – here’s the lowdown on some of the awesome restaurants we’re launching with.
Newly opened, family-run Piattino is a real Italian gem. Think pasta, pizza and all that good stuff. Piattino are proud supporters of independent suppliers and all of their produce is local, free range and organically sourced. Plus they’re a wine bar and jazz club – how cool.
These guys know how it’s done. No one’s going to say no to an artisan pizza and plate of BBQ wings, washed down with a great beer, a cider or a cocktail (or all three). The decor’s pretty edgy too – think boardsports, cycling and street art. Sweet.
A must visit for anyone living or visiting Bath. JC’s know how to do street food. They serve a mix of rotisserie chicken, pork belly, sourdough wraps, salads and experimental rice dishes. Tasty stuff.
A happy marriage of feel-good food with edgy, design-inspired interiors. These guys do chicken, and they do it good. Choose from their dedicated ‘Wing Shack’, range of ‘Dirty Buns and Sliders’ or go for a good old fashioned burger, wrap or sandwich. Or if you’re ravenous – get a whole bird down you. They’ve also got an absurdly good cocktail menu.
Cafe au Lait
For all you brunch fiends out there. Rumour has it, they do a pretty good ‘avocado toast’ (but make sure you add bacon). Plus they’re not just a brunch spot. They also serve lunch and dinner alongside cocktails, draught local beer and wine. Is there anything they can’t do? Doesn’t look like it.
Who doesn’t love a bit of Thai? Charm’s menu takes you on a whistle-stop tour of the East, from Bangkok. Their food is packed full of fresh herbs, roots and dried and toasted spices. Prepare yourself for bold flavours and tingling taste buds. They can also whip you up an Asian inspired cocktail. Win.
Pies & Puds
Whether it’s Steak & Ale, Roasted Vegetable, Sticky Toffee or Spotted Dick, a good old traditional pie or pudding is quite simply, Britain on a plate. They bake their pies daily, using only the finest locally sourced ingredients. We’ve got a good filling about these guys…
They call themselves the smallest pizzeria in the world. Cute. You may also have seen them peddling their pizza all around Bath from their base in Green Park station. Now that’s dedication. These guys may be small – but they certainly don’t hold back on flavour, quality or freshness, only using locally sourced and organic ingredients. Time to get Dominoes off speed dial.
As you can probably tell, we’ve got a bit of a soft spot for Italian restaurants. Ponte Vecchio have got your carb cravings covered with fresh pizza and pasta. Or if it happens to be leg day – they’ve got some pretty succulent steaks too. Their restaurant is located in one of Bath’s most scenic dining spots – right next to Pulteney Bridge and the river Avon. So if you’ve got a Tinder date coming up – you know what to do. Reserve that voucher.
A newly opened coffee shop in the heart of Bath. With the brightest blue exterior imaginable – you certainly can’t miss it. Pop down for a tasty lunch or a coffee and big slab of homemade cake. Perfect.
Creative Slider Company
As a pop-up, these guys have an ever changing menu, depending on their location and the night. Each menu can consist of classic combinations, quirky inventions or just God damn out of the ordinary madness. What is guaranteed though, is that the produce will be fresh, the food will be plentiful and and the fun will be next level. Make sure you check them out.
That’s the wall of fame for now.
But if you’ve got other ideas for who you’d like to see on the app, make sure to send us some restaurant recommendations through the app. We’ll reward you in MunchCoins (aka, extra money off your food!). Get on it.
Over ‘n’ out for now – until we take over another city.
