River Cottage Canteen Bristol offers its guests delicious, unique food in a wonderfully restored Grade II listed 19th Century church building in the Clifton area of Bristol.

With freshly prepared seasonal, local, organic and wild food, on an ever evolving menu, guests can enjoy a taste of River Cottage, served in the relaxed ambience of the restaurant.

During the day River Cottage Canteen has a laidback, family friendly vibe, with a dedicated children’s menu for younger members of the group plus the option to eat half portions of most things on the menu for the more adventurous eaters. During the evening, the restaurant comes alive with events, comedy nights and much more. The stunning à la carte menu is offset with a fantastic selection of locally sourced drinks.

The bar is the perfect place to catch up with friends; enjoy a delicious assortment of cakes and bar snacks, fresh juices and coffee all day or visit in the evening for fortnightly live music, seasonal cocktails and a chance to unwind.

A Private Dining Room is also available for special celebrations or private events and is free of charge for groups of 10 or more people all dining off the main menu – a fabulous space, with your own personal server.
