I have lost count of the number of times we have dined here over the last 8 years or so, it seems to be more an institution than a dining hall, I say dining as it used to be a university cafeteria or refractory is the better term. Hey ho what days they must have been. Well to start with... More

This was our second visit to B&Bs and in fairness only came about because we had forgotten the first one. We arrived without booking at 9.10pm on a Saturday night, were shown to a table, given menus and told we had to order straight away because the kitchen was about to shut. The menu says tapas is available from 6.45pm... More

Went for a Sunday lunch here as part of a family birthday, and it was beautiful. The staff were polite and attentive, and the food was cooked beautifully, between us we had all different types of meat and none could be faulted, nor could the abundance of accompaniments, such as roast carrots, parsnip crisps, cauliflower cheese, Yorkshire pudding and mixed...

We visited here for a Sunday roast which had promised to be the best Sunday roast in Bristol. Having tried to book on numerous occasions with no luck I was excited when we were able to get a table .... I quickly regretted our choice of venue. Staff were on the whole helpful and friendly, if a little inexperienced -... More

Just had a lovely Sunday lunch although I must say it wasn't amazing. Staff are super friendly and informative. Sunday lunch is served in a novel way on one large board for the table to share. Beef wasn't overly tasty, although generous number of slices. Lamb a little fatty. Veg was abundant but parsnips undercooked. All in all a good... More

We took advantage of sunny winter day and sat outside. The restaurant has what is probably the best spot for sun on Whiteladies Rd without being right on the road. We had the 3-course set menu for £10 and we were stuffed! The food was good and we will definitely be back to try the tapas menu.

This place was recommended by staff at the Cowshed nearby, who were fully booked for lunch today. As it turns out we were very lucky to get a table here and we so glad that we did - definitely the best roast dinner we’ve ever had. The local organic meats (we had beef and pork) were unbelievably tasty and tender,... More
