Harden's says

This small, independent bistro in Redlands is gathering a loyal following, thanks to its seasonal menus (with many of the ingredients gathered, grown or hunted by the owners) and biodynamic wine selection.

“The most innovative, original and seasonal food in Bristol at the moment” is the claim made by fans of Jan Ostle and Mary Wilson’s Redlands bistro – “a very small place” offering a “reassuringly limited choice of very well-sourced dishes (magnolia blossom and mackerel a surprise and a success) with service that’s charming, enthusiastic and helpful”. At the end of October 2019, the couple announced a further step towards hyper-locality, with new menus incorporating ever-more produce from their own expanding farm.

“Remarkably original, with wonderful fresh ingredients” – Jan & Mary Ostle’s Redlands bistro is yet another stellar independent on the Bristol gastro scene. “The food produced here in the tiny little kitchen is a revelation” – there’s a “short menu of three starters, three mains, three desserts that seem to change on a daily basis”, based around “taking something simple and giving it a twist, to create some exquisite dishes”.

“Holding its own on a street shared with two Michelin winners” – Jan and Mary Ostle’s “tiny” independent bistro in Redlands “contrives to be busy in this suburban area even on a weekday lunchtime”. The draw – “exceptional food from the freshest ingredients” (many gathered, grown or hunted by the owners) from a focussed menu and service that’s “so friendly”.

"Selfishly I don’t want to let too many people know about this gem but.... The menu is changing constantly with a suitably limited number of options offering great choices or the exceptional tasting menu (complete with option for great wine matching). As my good friend put it, the meal was excellent but the passion shown by the owners and staff made it a most memorable experience. Flavours are sublime and suitably subtle. Can’t wait to get back to Bristol! "
