Bristol is a haven for foodies, boasting an array of restaurants serving up cuisine from all over the world, and Salt And Pepper is the place to go to feast on authentic Polish dishes. Featuring a trendy setting with exposed brick walls and industrial-chic decor, the restaurant appeals to the city’s hip crowd as well as to Polish expats looking for a little piece of home. Located on Lawrence Hill, Salt And Pepper is known to get busy. Avoid disappointment by booking in advance!
Polish cuisine is known for its hearty dishes, and at Salt And Pepper on Bristol’s Lawrence Hill you’ll find soul-soothing stews, homemade dumplings and other authentic Polish dishes, cooked just how your Polish mama would make. Begin with a comforting bowl of homemade sour rye soup or some chicken & beef noodle broth before moving on to your main course – you’ll be able to choose from an array of different types of dumplings to spicy beef goulash and chicken kiev. Salt And Pepper’s menu takes in all of the Polish classics, and for this reason the restaurant is a huge hit with Polish emigres.
We recommend trying the pork knuckle cooked with beer, horseradish and mustard followed by some of Salt And Pepper’s homemade apple pie with vanilla ice cream. Tucked away over on Lawrence Hill, a short walk from Temple Meads Railway Station, Salt And Pepper draws in diners from all over Bristol on Tuesdays through to Sundays. Be sure of snagging a seat at this charming restaurant by making a reservation beforehand.
I enjoyed the food, the portions were very big. I could actually share my dinner with another person. The atmosphere was ok. The place seems a bit too small ,but overall I would recommend the restaurant.
The food was wonderful and the portion is quite big. We ordered one share dish and in the end we have to pack some of them home since we were all so full.
The restaurant was great. Very friendly atmosphere, good service, great food! Looking forward to being able to visit again soon. The only constructive criticism I would give is to have more polish beer on offer!
