This is a small and cosy restaurant with a surprisingly wide menu and really fantastic food. How one chef could turn out so many dishes was beyond us. The wine list was so unusual, widely sourced and both our choices were excellent. We loved the...More

We came here for lunch on Saturday as we were having a day out in Bristol, but had previously picked it out from Tripadvisor. We weren't disappointed. The food was really delicious; my crab on toast was a triumph and my husband declared his squid...More
