Visited here with family. Need to book a table at the weekend as its very busy. The food was delicious. Very tasty, and full of flavours! The lamb for the main was one of the best courses of the night. We could not find a fault with any of the food. The tomato and mozzarella starter was lovely and light.... More

The food here is amazing. Love their dinner deals and roasts. One of the best restaurants in Bristol. I need to go back again soon.

Great lunchtime deal - 3 courses for £10 with lots of Gluten Free choice. Staff very friendly and attentive, and small area out the front so you can sit outside in the warm weather. Will go back.

I feel kind of bad leaving a poor review since the serving staff were all so nice, but it's not a place I'll be visiting again because of the sheer number of issues and the quality of the food. The starters were decent - we had the garlic mushrooms on brioche and the mozzarella/tomato salad. Then the wait began... it... More

Called in with family on a recent visit to Clifton and had the set lunchtime menu. Have to say I was very impressed. The food was lovely and tasty and the staff friendly and attentive. As it was the set menu, obviously the portions were small, but it gave a good idea of the variety and quality of the meals... More

As a group of 6 without a booking on a Sat eve we were really welcomed at the townhouse without any issues. The food, service and ambience were all fantastic! We would highly recommend it.

Well priced food. Sometimes this means too many guests and the staff get a little disorganised (bringing your starters twice etc) but they are quick to apologise for any errors and we're not stuck up enough to mind! Great value for money too. Thanks

We thought it would be nice to have lunch out today and saw the set menu board outside the Townhouse £10 for three courses. Lots of choices including good range of veggie dishes and gluten free options. We took our seats outside and watched the theatre that is Whiteladies Rd. Our food was absolutely delicious and the service was fast... More

We stumbled on the Townhouse quite by accident as we were specifically heading for somewhere else that Sunday lunchtime. However, on passing by the wonderful aromas of roast dinner drew us in from the street and we were not disappointed. The restaurant is simply decorated and gives air to a relaxed dining atmosphere. Plenty of loud chatter and varied conversations... More

You can't beat 3 course for £18 or £10 before 7pm! The hangar steak with skinny chips were lovely. I guess the only downer was the very limited desert menu?
