D&D London to open a big budget German-inspired restaurant in Bristol

D&D London has announced a new Bristol restaurant called Klosterhaus, which will open on October 2.

The restaurant has been developed within the landmark 18th century grade 1 listed Quakers Friars building, a short walk from Cabot Circus, and the food will pay homage to the classic dining scene of grand mittel-European cafes.

The menu was developed by executive head chef Bjoern Wassmuth (from D&D London’s German Gymnasium) and head chef Rhys Grayson. Producers include Meat Box, Coombeshead Farm Bakery, and Wing of St. Mawes.

Dishes will include soused herring with herring caviar, sweet mustard, potato and apple salad; authentic German chicken and veal schnitzels; and slow roast duck with potato dumplings and braised red cabbage.

Wines will be largely European and, in typical D&D style, the drinks list will be heavy on the cocktails.

Des Gunewardena, chairman of the group, said: “Quaker Friars is an absolute gem of a building and I hope that Klosterhaus will bring it to life. Bristol has a very exciting foodie scene and I hope that we can contribute to and become part of it.

“We are very pleased to be working again with Hammerson and are very supportive and enthusiastic about their plans for the overall development of Quakers Friars.”

Said Robert Hobbs, from Cabot Circus in Bristol: “We’re delighted to welcome D&D’s new restaurant and bar, Klosterhaus, to Cabot Circus and the City of Bristol.

“Klosterhaus, will open Friday 2nd October in the beautiful listed Friary building in Quakers Friars, which has been sympathetically restored inside to create a stunning new dining and bar experience in the heart of the city. It will definitely be the place to get those perfect Instagram shots.

“As well as a new dining experience for the city, the menu at Klosterhaus looks incredible; serving locally sourced produce which I am sure will go down well in our foodie city. We’re extremely pleased to be able to bring yet another premium brand to Cabot Circus and the city this year.”
