Overall excellent food: the 8 course mid-week tasting menu (plus amuse-bouche and petits fours) was well balanced and served at the right pace. I quite liked the fact that we had different people serving (and explaining) each dish rather then the same individual. There were...More

Bulrush is a class above the rest in Bristol. Experimental flavours and techniques make it an experience like no other. The tasting menu is changed frequently and attention to detail on every dish is insane. Worth a trip, even if you’re not from Bristol!

We came here for a lovely dinner. My friend went for the “meat/fish” tasting menu and I went for the “veggie” option. They both have the same price tag (c. £55 for nine delicious courses, one appetiser and another extra after the two desserts) which...More

We had the tasting menu of about twelve course with a flight of wines. The quality of the food and service is excellent and the dishes are imaginative. It is a small restaurant so essential to book.

It was nearly 18 months since we’d last visited and we wondered whether we’d done the right thing introducing our foodie friends (including restaurant blogger PoshNosh) to Bulrush. We needn’t have been worried - the tasting menu was excellent, a great set of interesting dishes,...More

Regrettably only the tasting menu is offered on Saturdays. We went with this but found the fools although nicely presented not terribly enjoyable. We wouldn’t recommend the tasting menu.

Hi. Sorry but I don't know for sure. The restaurant offers a tasting menu so you eat what the chef chooses and I suspect it is not halal food. Maybe phone the restaurant and ask directly?

Hi, I think they have, as we don't drink so we didn't pay much notice on it. Call or email them, they are very nice and easy going. Enjoy your evening.
