Owner's description

The Granary, a new all-day dining restaurant, opens its doors in one of the city's most iconic landmarks. The Granary is not just a restaurant; it's a celebration of history, architecture, and modern British cuisine that champions sustainability, seasonality, provenance and locally sourced ingredients.

Today, this historic venue is reborn as The Granary, an all-day dining restaurant that pays homage to its past while embracing the present which seamlessly bridges history and innovation offering a modern British menu that revolves around seasonal and sustainable ingredients with flavours inspired by the Byzantine trade routes. It's a place where the elegance of architecture, the art of cooking, and the warmth of human connections converge to create a unique and inviting experience.

Whether it's breakfast with freshly baked milk buns, hearty steak & eggs or small plates & seasonal mains cooked over the open fire, the goal is simple: each bite should envelop you in a comforting embrace that bring a smile to your face.

Another exciting development in the journey is the re-opening of “The Granary Club”, a cocktail bar and live entertainment space that honours its original legacy. This promises to be a place for Bristolians and visitors alike to relive old memories and make new ones. This iconic venue is also where British comedy's best known scene for Only Fools & Horses was filmed of Del Boy falling thru the bar.
