Source is well located in St Nicholas Market, there are tables outside and you can book tables inside. There is an excellent range of produce available on the menu and the food is well prepared, served with a flourish and a smile. We particularly wanted oysters which they had, they were well shucked (few fragments of shell) and beautifully presented on a bed of ice. For a main course we both had the sole which was perfectly cooked but it was served on chard when on the menu it said 'a bed of spinach'; the chard was rather too strong and earthy for the sole. This change was not passed on to us when we ordered and even though we told the waitress about the change there was no apology. The mussels and chilli worked well with the fish. It was a good dish but it could/should have been outstanding.
There is a well selected range of beers, wines and soft drinks and an outstanding list of puddings. The coffee is excellent.

Great place for a leisurely brunch. Laid back atmosphere, friendly staff, locally sourced and home cooked food. The freshly made brioche is melt in the mouth. The deli is also worth a look for good quality ingredients. You'll pay a little more, but supermarket deli's don't come close

loved a spacious seat in one of Bristol's St Nicholas market alleys - lots of life to watch. The fish soup and burger were tasty enough and the chips crisp enough to make me forget my diet and the less than spotless table and slightly greasy-spoon sachets of sauces.

I am told the cold Aubergine and Tomato soup and cheese board were also delicious. But, given the quality of the food, what was most delicious was the price - £28.50 for that lot (OK, we drank only tap water). When in Bristol we would definitely go again, and again.

Had lunch yesterday with two friends and we all had the same Hereford, 28 dry aged sirloin steak sourced from their inhouse butcher and a stunning bit of beef it was! Only minus point was no sauce bearnaise but the peppercorn sauce was very goid. Enjoyed a lovely bottle of Cote Roannaise red which is something you rarely see outside of Roanne in France and a superb alternative to Beaujolais.

Fantastic Farm to Table business. The best breakfast I have had in years. Each item was perfectly cooked and well presented. Wish we could have tried the lunch or dinner as I'm sure it would be fantastic
