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.

“Unbelievable value for the most sensational food produced in a minuscule kitchen”, agree fans of Jan Ostle & Mary Wilson’s hyper-local Redland bistro. “Three cheers for this welcoming local”, with “very friendly, efficient, knowledgeable service in simple surroundings”. The kitchen relies on “home-grown veg and local suppliers to produce the most brilliant mixture of innovative dishes, textures and tastes, all presented on interesting china and put together in a relaxed but oh-so-professional manner”.

“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”.

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).
