I brought my Mum to the Ashville for tea. We could not fault anything. The food we had a rump steak and a fillet steak was the best we have had. Would recommend anyone to visit and see for themselves. The place is laid out lovely. Time between courses was just right. Staff very nice. Will be trying Sunday lunch next..Debbie

We went on a Friday night and wondered how noisy this place would be, it was fine in the main part as there was a noisy group in the other section. The food was really good, we were not told was what not available so I couldn't have my original starter but the alternative soup was really nice as was the chicken burger. Others had the mussels, the Camembert, and the fish and chips which were all really nice. We will be recommending to friends and will be back again soon.

The Ashville is an excellent local pub with fantastic food and a really cosy atmosphere. Staff are always polite and welcoming - it's our favourite place for Sunday lunch. They have a great range of drinks, particularly ciders!

Stayed at The ASHVILLE overnight as we were going to a production at The Tobacco Factory. Great accommodation, arrived an hour and a quarter late due to Friday night traffic. Ashville had retained our dinner table for us, prompt and friendly service despite our lateness and only having 45mins to eat and get to the theatre. Delicious menu food excellent attentive and helpful. Nothing too much trouble thoroughly recommend it.

We went for Sunday lunch which we and our friends have enjoyed on several occasions; what makes this a good option for us is the excellent vegetarian roast dinner which is a rare find. Sadly I am all too used to being given the 'reheated lasagne' whilst heaped bowls of vegetables are given the meat eaters roasts! Incidentally, my meat eating friends rate it too.

Had a very pleasant evening at The Ashville. The food was excellent. Would have given 6 but service was a little slow - it was a quiet night in January so not many staff. Definitely will return.

This was our first time ever eating at the Ashville and we had one of the most tastiest meal we've probably ever had!. We could not fault it. The steaks were cooked to perfection and the recommended wine went down nicely!. We will definitely be back again soon. The staff were lovely too. Highly recommended.

The Rump Steak was gorgeous and one of our group had the Rack of Ribs which he failed to eat and had a doggy bag! He commented that they were delicious. Real Ale to wash the the meals down. EXCELLENT. Will return in the near future👌

My friends and I had a lovely meal, in delightful surroundings and made even more enjoyable by the waitress remembering us from our last visit on New Years Eve! Always a good touch. Will return when next in Bristol.

We had a lovely pre-theatre meal at the Asheville. Wait staff/bar staff were very nice and friendly. Seems to be popular as all the tables were booked so booking is perhaps recommended. Food was excellent, would go again.

Fab food, warm welcome and good service. The range of food was extensive and very interesting. Prices were reasonable. Lucky people who live near by. Not everyone is fortunate to have a gastro pub on their doorstep.

Possibly the crispiest batter I've ever had!!! Absolutely delicious food and service! Outstanding thank you! We will most definitely return to this fabulous eatery! The lady behind the bar was so helpful, and polite and smiley! Great!
