The food on the taster menu was delicious. The restaurant was just lacking a bit of atmosphere and a couple of courses took quite a while to come out.

Loved it! Tasting menu was fantastic. Lots of clean flavours and interesting twists. Surprised I'd not heard more about you sooner but I'll certainly tell everyone I meet to get there now!

Interesting, innovative food. Staff made us feel very welcome and bent over backwards to make sure we liked the food, even offering to substitute one dish for another. Great service, obviously attentive to what is or isn't being eaten, fun and different evening out.

Great dinner, first 2 courses brilliant. Couldn't taste any elderflower with asparagus, watercress didn't really come through with scallop dish, felt the octopus suffered from a little freezer burn, consomme delicious, cinnamon a little too strong in lamb faggot. Strawberry dish STUNNING, pine needles a revelation, a tiny bit disappointed to have honeycomb on both deserts. Parsnip sponge and chocolate completely brilliant. Perfect seasoning, cooking and beautiful presentation. So I'm being super picky, because it was a fantastic meal, excellent wine and great value.

One of the best meals we have ever eaten. My husband raved about his octopus carpaccio and the amuse bouche were exceptional. And we felt as though we were visiting friends. Thanks for a truly great evening. We will definitely be back!

We were at the Bulrush restaurant for lunch to celebrate our daughters birthday and it was just perfect. The food was incredible starting with savoury canapes at the bar to the main lunch which was absolutely delicious. The restaurant has a wonderful relaxing atmosphere. We will definitely be visiting again. jude kinnaird

We ate from the tasting menu which was superb and very good value. Some of the best food we've ever eaten and we've eaten in a few Michelin star places now. The two desserts we had (Pine yoghurt followed by chocolate delice with parsnip sponge) were my favourite part of the menu. The wine and cocktails we had were also great! Thank you for such a lovely evening.

We had a brilliant time and thoroughly enjoyed the interesting tasting menu which showcases and champions some underappreciated local ingredients. The parsnip sponge was a complete winner and we're very much looking forward to another visit very soon. Many thanks, Hannah

We had a great time. Brilliant food, knowledgeable waiting staff and a great atmosphere. Perhaps a bit more of a wait between certain courses than we'd have liked but definitely worth the wait and it didn't take away from the overall experience at all!

We had dinner here on Saturday night for my birthday and the whole experience was fantastic. I loved the fact that it was a small, privately owned restaurant. Tastefully decorated, upstairs and downstairs dining areas and a bar area. The staff were welcoming, friendly knowledgable and the food was amazingly presented and completely delicious. Everything fresh tasting and so delicately seasoned. We had a pescatarian and a vegan in our booking and they were happy to tailor the tasting menu to our needs. I've found a favourite restaurant and we are most definitely coming back again and again. Bullrush thank you so much for a special birthday dining experience.

Stunning food that is well thought out and perfectly executed. Was a pure joy to eat here, and it's leaped straight into being one of my favourite restaurants in Bristol. You can feel that the chefs have put their hearts into the plates. Glad we did the tasting menu. Standout dishes were the asparagus and elderflower vinegar hollandaise, lamb dish, yogurt dessert. Can't wait to go again soon!

Please refer to my Tripadvidor review for full feedback but this was an excellent lunch with excellent food and service and I am sure, given time and if they maintain their current standards they will earn a much coveted star.
