Harden's says

The website says "Fire. Meat. Music." And that's exactly what Pasture does - chef patron Sam Elliot takes local ingredients, including 35-day dry-aged beef, and cooks them over flames. And there's a late night bar which showcases local band and DJs.

This “wonderful steakhouse (which also does an exceptional Sunday lunch)” was opened by former Jamie Oliver chef-director Sam Elliott three years ago in a spruced-up Victorian warehouse, opposite St Mary Redcliffe church, and serves impressive cuts of West Country beef displayed in chiller cabinets, alongside vegetables and fruit from is own farm. It’s already made a big impact on the local dining scene, and has spawned a spinoff in Cardiff.

‘Fire, meat, music’ is the mantra at this atmospheric converted warehouse in Redcliffe, dedicated to cooking over fire, complete with open kitchen and meat hanging in chiller cabinets. One of the hottest places in town right now, according to the locals – “the food is simple but very tasty, and the team really care”.

On the Redcliffe site that was formerly Byzantium (RIP), chef/patron Sam Elliot’s early 2018 newcomer opened too late to inspire any survey feedback. With its in-house butcher and emphasis on fire-based grills, early social media and press reports suggest that especially if you are a meat-lover, you should definitely give it a whirl.

For 31 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).

"One of the best ribeye steaks that I have had. The vegetarian dish was excellent too according to a guest. But note that this is a steak restaurant : excellent steaks, but few other dishes. "
