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👌

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.

Excellent service, food was good, Staff very friendly and helpful, nothing too much trouble. Good range of real ales and a good night had. Only downside was an extremely loud group of people which marred the evening - couldn't hear our own conversation.

Excellent Sunday lunch, we had beef, lamb and pork. Beef was medium rare which was superb. The land lady let us eat early. Super experience. Recommended for rugby or football people going to Ashton gate

Perfect food. Perfect service. Will Defoe be returning. This is a little hidden gem. Trouble is if it gets too busy won't be able to get a table so.....will have to make a permanent reservation.

The food was great but service not so hot. Took a long time for food to arrive, one order was wrong, had to ask twice for condiments and had to go and ask for desert menu. Overcharged on the bill then on rectifying the bill still overcharged. Food really was lovely though.

I think I must have read the website wrongly as I was expecting to be offered either steak or vegetarian and we clearly had a lunch-time menu. However, it was very nice, particularly the salad and the service was good.

Most enjoyable meal and attentive staff. To improve a little somewhere to hang cats would be good and a wider selection of wine would be appreciated by myself, however, none of this detracts from my recommendation as a good restaurant.
