Hi there! I'm Georgie...
a Bath based food and lifestyle blogger.
Bath reminds me of a mini London... We have a fantastic and diverse foodie scene here. Where do I start? For a British classic, and the best fish 'n' chips you will find in any city, pop into The Scallop Shell. Or, try a traditional Sunday roast (fit for Kings) over at The Chequers. Enjoy an authentic slice of Indian street food from Chai Walla. Or, for an Italian favourite, head to the Bath Pizza Co. Catch up over coffee at Hunter & Sons and enjoy sipping the many single estate loose-leaf teas from Comins Tea House. These are of course, just a handful of the many wonderful establishments that I would recommend visiting in our gloriously golden city!
From food to lifestyle... Bath is home to one of the greatest historic sites in Northern Europe, the Roman Baths. Set in spectacular rolling countryside, we have picturesque walking spots; Bath Skyline Walk and Victoria Park, to name but a few! You'll definitely shop 'til you drop thanks to Bath's fabulous retail scene!
I was once a Londoner, living in Putney and working in the city. However, my fiancé Scott and I relocated to Bath in 2013 for a healthy dose of countryside living. In October 2015, after several years of trying to find my feet in a job I truly enjoyed, I decided to bite the bullet and set up The Bathonian. I have always loved creative writing and my trusty camera has never been far from my side. Setting up this blog has therefore been the most fulfilling, exciting adventure! It has given me the excuse to pour out my thoughts and opinions on paper, and enabled me the opportunity to meet like-minded people in Bath and beyond. My aim is to write on a weekly basis, so if you like what you see, I hope you'll stop by again and enjoy having a read of a blog post or two :)
I use a Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 camera to take my photos when travelling. It's a brilliant, discreet, pocket sized camera that takes sharp, crystal clear close ups and enables you to use a range of digital filter effects. However, when I'm taking photos of home cooked recipes, I use a Canon EOS 600D SLR. It's larger and slightly more cumbersome to hold, but equally great at taking photos. Both are exceptionally good cameras in my opinion, and I'd highly recommend purchasing one if you're new to blogging like me.
All reviews and opinions on The Bathonian are my own. All the photographs you see have been taken on my cameras unless otherwise stated (I will make it clear if images have been copied from websites that are not my own, or I have gained permission to take photos on premises that are not my own). My 'Wishlist' draws inspiration from other online websites. As such, those images have been copied and pasted onto The Bathonian. Some of the recipes are either copied directly from online recipes and/or cookbooks or modified by me in some way. I will state clearly in the blog posts where these sources come from and how I have gone about adapting a recipe. Please be aware that I will make it clear if a post has been sponsored.
I hope my blog inspires you to visit Bath. You can follow me on my travels around the city, and those further afield, on social media too.
Please do get in touch if you have any work opportunities you would like to discuss with me. Many thanks!
