Robun is a celebration of authentic Japanese food and drink, specialising in a modern take on Yakiniku – the art of grilling meat, seafood and vegetables over a traditional charcoal fire. The menu also incorporates sushi and sashimi, tempura, gyoza and bao buns, all served alongside an unparalleled list of sake, Japanese whisky and cocktails. The restaurant is a tribute to Japanese author, Kanagaki Robun, who wrote the seminal book, Seiyo ryoritso in 1872. The book took inspiration from Western barbecue and introduced the concept of Yakiniku to Japan. For something special, Robun’s Afternoon Tea swaps sandwiches for sushi and scones for bao buns. This beautifully presented Afternoon Tea features some of the standout dishes from Robun’s menu, alongside sweet treats like Miso Cake, traditional Japanese teas and the option of sparkling wine. Upstairs at Robun, a private dining room and bar is set to host celebrations, events and meetings. The space can accommodate 40 seated or 50 standing guests, with set menus available for parties of eight or more. Set in the heart of Bath, Robun offers an informal yet refined environment to share freshly prepared sharing plates and pairings.
