We booked a table to celebrate by brother in law's birthday. This was our first visit and we were pleasantly surprised with great food, excellent service and friendly welcoming atmosphere. We would definitely recommend this place and look forward to our next visit.

Best steak we’ve had and we love steak so do look for the best steak restaurants any time we eat out. Atmosphere is a little dull, nothing in the walls or any theme but will come back again when back in Bristol.

Fantastic service and fantastic atmosphere. Had a lovely evening with my family and will definitely return. The food was delicious. We went for the whole three courses and left happily satisfied.

This was without doubt the best steak I've had in this country for many years. The interior of The Ashville was well laid out, fresh and clean. A menu choice and specials board to please all customers. The staff were attentive, friendly and helpful. Looking at the number of guests I'd advise booking.

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.
