Brilliant Sunday roast. Thank you.
Very good service on arrival and at our table Food was superb!
Fantastic roast dinner. I had the pork husband the veggie. He did comment that his main dish was ‘just a pile of vegetables but tasty’ and he would have preferred an en croute or something.
You are my favourite venue
I didn't think much of the house red. Plus our waitress got the order wrong and forgot to take the Friends discount off despite being shown the card. Worth noting but it will not deter us from coming again.The food is good and service quick.
We had a lovely meal. The lamb and mint kofta were full of flavour. The setting is simply unmatched and the service prompt and pleasant. Followed by 2 hours of rumbustious comedy and you have a perfect evening.
A truly excellent Sunday lunch in a unique atmosphere.
Best Roasts ever- particularly rated the vegetarian sunday roast- twas delicious, thanks
Had a birthday cream tea which was very tasty The service was amazing Thank you everybody
Excellent food, in amazing surroundings
Helpful and accommodating staff
Excellent service from our waiter Aidan & his colleagues.
Ran out of salad by 12.45pm. Should have more in busy periods for lunch as the main courses are a lot bigger and expensive
Staff were really great under pressure and noise of kids in the area. Well handled. Food delicious and timely.
My friend was very disappointed with the vegetarian option and we were both disappointed with the desert menu. We both would have liked a white meat option on the menu. Service was slow getting my initial drink and when asking for a red wine, I was not given a choice. Also getting the bill was very slow. Could do better 1766.
Fantastic food and excellent service, thanks!
A bit chilly on Friday evening
We were running late but were welcomed warmly by excellent staff which took our stress levels down instantly. Delicious food in a lovely relaxed setting.

Smell of urine kept drifting down to our terrace table from a relatively nearby toilet
Hi Nicola, I'm really sorry to hear this, obviously this would not be pleasant while you are trying to enjoy your meal! I hope this doesn't stop you from visiting again, please let us know and we will make sure you are nowhere near the toilets! Best wishes, 1766 Bar & Kitchen

We had the most delicious Roast dinner on Sunday, thank you! The vegetarian option was so tasty, and my partner really enjoyed his lamb. Afterwards we had the chocolate mousse and the pineapple with blackened coconut ice cream, both REALLY good. The waiter was really lovely too, such excellent and friendly service. It’s the nicest Sunday roast we’ve had in Bristol, compliments to the chef and to the staff.
