So, maybe you’ve heard this before, but – this restaurant really is unique in Bristol. This elegant Totterdown venue (accessed from Windsor Terrace) boasts a dining hall styled on a Regency-era grand hall and a gorgeous private room recalling the libraries and drawing rooms of royal palaces. The historical accuracy also pertains to the food, which – with the help of leading food historians – is as close a representation of how the British well-to-do have eaten over the centuries as you’ll find. It’s also delicious, from 16th-century brawn (corned pig’s head pickled in beer and willow branch) to salt marsh lamb stuffed with crab and asparagus ice cream with garlic grass.
