A “Bristol classic” – founded in 1976 and forerunner of the city’s booming small independents gastro scene – this charmingly boho Montpelier spot is back on top form under the ownership of local mover-and-shaker Connie Coombes. It’s “the absolute epitome of a neighbourhood bistro – Alice Waters (of iconic Chez Panisse in California) would feel immensely at home”.

The latest, four-year-old incarnation of this Montpelier veteran – once a greengrocer’s, but a well-known, shabby-chic Bristol haunt since the ’70s – “offers small, well-flavoured plates” but as big a draw is the “very well chosen wine list including some gems by the glass”.

“A local gem”; this beloved Montpelier veteran – once a greengrocer’s, but operating (under several owners) as a ramshackle haunt since the ’70s – is on sparkling form currently, serving up “a short menu” of “reliably superb” and “vibrant” small plates prepared by an ex-Moro chef. A jovial sibling, Bellita, arrived in Cotham Hill in 2015.
