Good re­views can’t save shop

Bath Chronicle - - NEWS -

An ex­per­i­ment to branch out a sausage restau­rant has ul­ti­mately proved un­suc­cess­ful af­ter a Bath food joint closed down. Bris­tol’s suc­cess­ful up­mar­ket bangers and mash restau­rant and bar, The Clifton Sausage, opened a new branch along The Paragon in Oc­to­ber 2016 - re­plac­ing the old Cow­shed eatery. The Clifton Sausage, in Clifton Vil­lage, has gone from strength to strength since it opened back in 2002, so ex­pand­ing its em­pire to nearby Bath seemed like a good move. But, it proved not to be for the city cen­tre’s Clifton Sausage, as it closed its doors for good on Satur­day. It pub­lished the fol­low­ing state­ment on the restau­rant’s Face­book page: “Thank you for all of your sup­port but our doors will be clos­ing in Bath at the end of play, Satur­day, Oc­to­ber 6. Any ques­tions or queries call us on 0117 973 1192. See you in Bris­tol or at the Rec for rugby.” Bath res­i­dents would be for­given for be­ing sur­prised at this news, con­sid­er­ing its re­views on Tripad­vi­sor. Out of 179 re­views, it boasts a rat­ing of 4.5 out of five. The menu fea­tured at least six va­ri­eties of sausage ev­ery day, in­clud­ing veg­e­tar­ian. It is be­lieved an In­dian restau­rant will take its place and move into the Grade II listed Geor­gian build­ing.
