Chef-owner George Livesey’s “very adventurous tasting menus” – full of “unusual ingredients and foraged items” – have made this modest-looking, former greengrocers a top star of the Bristol dining scene. Some reporters reckon it’s “a bit of a Marmite restaurant – love it or hate it”, but all are converted by the time they leave, and if some dishes “don’t look appealing on the menu or on the black plates, they certainly taste good”. Service is “friendly and well-informed”, and there’s an “interesting, mainly organic wine list”.
“Ssssh... don’t tell anyone!”. George Livesey and Katherine Craughwell’s “real Bristolian gem” occupies a “simple and unpretentious setting” (formerly a greengrocers) which “belies the sophistication of its cooking”: “exquisitely beautiful dishes” – a “clever, tasty blend of familiar ingredients mixed with foraged products” – at “astonishing value” prices; “super helpful staff” too, “all with no pretension”.
“The latest reincarnation of this Kingsdown perennial” (an ex-greengrocer’s that housed stalwarts Bistro 21 and Juniper) is a hit; George Livesey and Katherine Craughwell deliver “really top-class food” that “blends modern British and interesting Japanese and foraging influences” – and it’s “amazing value” too.
This “wonderful new locally sourced restaurant taking over from Juniper has made an impressive start”. In a white-painted brick former grocery shop, George Livesey and Katherine Craughwell deliver a daring and mostly incredibly accomplished collection of eclectic dishes.
