Bath gets ready to welcome back The Huntsman pub into its drinking fold.

The historic building – in front of Ralph Allen’s classic townhouse – was once a Georgian Coffee House. Along with the Crystal Palace on Abbey Green – recently refurbished – and The Boater just off Laura Place – the pub has been bought by Fuller’s  Brewery.

It’s a Grade ll listed building with the oldest shop-front in the city – dating back to 1680.
