“An excellent small independent restaurant in an increasingly trendy part of Bristol” (Southville), which rose to success under former owners Sam Leech & Beccy Massy; now run by (FOH) Tom Masters, who imparts a “lovely warm welcoming feel to the place”, it “offers a varied, innovative, largely vegetarian menu” and the former small plates ethos has remained intact.

Sam Leach & Beccy Massy turned this ex-office in Southville into one of the city’s best-loved small plates spots – only to sell up in summer 2018 to focus on cider-making. Having reopened in August under new boss Tom Masters, its sharing ethos remains intact, but we’ve removed the rating for the time being.

After honing their talents in some of Bristol and London’s top gastro-spots (St John, 40 Maltby Street) Sam Leach & Beccy Massy are now racking up praise for their own “fantastic neighbourhood restaurant”, in Southville; the “exquisite” small plates – many of the ingredients sourced from their own field on the outskirts of town – are a “total bargain” and “well worth more than one visit”.

Sam Leach & Beccy Massy, “who served their apprenticeships at many of Bristol’s top restaurants”, continue to win praise for their white-walled Southville venture, serving “exotic” small plates featuring “fascinating combinations of local ingredients”. However, “more in the way of sound absorption” would go down well with some reporters.
