Dine at the best restaurants in Bristol


Bristol is home to three Michelin starred venues, three of the UK's top restaurants and many other award-winning dining experiences.

A veritable microcosm of the world, Bristol has been shaped by people from everywhere who have brought their customs, culture and cuisine to the city. 

As well as having a wide range of world cuisine, plus some top notch traditional English food, Bristol is home to some of the best restaurant in the country including three Michelin-starred venues.

The Pony and Trap – a 200-year-old country inn in the pretty village of Chew Magna, is one of the most exciting places to visit in the South West. Then Casamia on Bristol Harbourside offers a seasonal dining experience – both the tasting menus and the décor of the restaurant change throughout the year. Finally, Wilks, in Redland, is a vibrant restaurant offering modern European dishes and owner of the third Michelin star.

Aside from these, Bristol’s streets are bursting with award-winning gastro pubs and cafes as well as some of the best restaurants in the country – everything from the conventional to the eccentric in locations that vary from everyday to remarkable. One of our best restaurants, for example, is the Lido in Clifton which overlooks a 19th-century swimming pool, while another is the Glassboat, sitting pretty on the Floating Harbour.
