About Buttermilk and Maple

Welcome to
Buttermilk & Maple
________________________________________
Buttermilk and Maple is located on the famous Welsh Back waterfront, close to the historical Bristol Bridge that gave life to the city.

For centuries the bridge was the only crossing of the Avon for miles around. As Bristol spread to the southern bank of the river, the bridge joined the two halves of the city. A Georgian bridge toll caused outrage and led to Bristol’s bloodiest riot.

Relax history is the past! Buttermilk and Maple is the perfect place to meet with colleagues, catch-up with friends, share precious moments with family or just to be on your own chilling out, we have free Wi-Fi and plenty of power sockets near tables to keep you connected all day.

We serve great food from an early buffet breakfast, trendy brunch, light lunch… or not, afternoon tea and dinner that you can enjoy in a very laid back atmosphere. Don’t forget to order the pancakes!

Our team will also be delighted to guide you on a journey through our bar discovering wines, craft beers, gins, whiskeys and other spirits which combined together will create our fantastic Welsh Back themed cocktails .

We also have meeting rooms and a mezzanine for special events.

Just pop in, contact us …… and follow us on social media to keep in touch and see what’s happening every day!!!

Staff kept getting orders wrong and seemed a bit hungover. Food was underwhelming. Not likely to come back again

Service was terrible. So so slow considering the restaurant was nearly empty and because of this we missed our next reservation for cocktails which put a dampened on the hen evening. Food nothing to rave about. Will not be returning. Sort it out guys!

Waitress was clearly new, seemed confused by having to seat us and take orders. The venue itself is delightful.

The process of booking online was great, but the experience at the restaurant was disappointing. Our food took more than an hour to come, and my meal was missing, and it took another 30mins for mine to come, therefore the rest of our party had eaten all their food by the time mine arrived, which is not exactly ideal when you go out for a meal with friends. During this mistake, no one apologised about me not having a meal, or me having to eat alone when the food did arrive, not to mention that the quality of the food was dissapointing when it did arrive, instead of avocado mash, I got plain avocado slices on toast and my eggs were undercooked. Not only I received no apology for having to watch wveryone eat, waiting for a meal that wasn’t even worth the wait, it was supposed to be taken off the bill, and instead we were actually charged 3 extra meals. We understand that mistakes happen, but the attitude of the staff and the service did not make up for these mistakes. They made the whole experience worse. No way I would reccommend to anyone, nor go there again.

Made a reservation online and then rang a few days later to change the time and confirm it. When we arrived there was no record of our reservation. Service was really slow, the cocktails had so much ice it tasted like water not worth £10 a glass, mine and my partners food came out separately with quite a time difference in between when his did arrive items were missing which we had to ask for twice. The girl did apoligise for the slow service and said it was a very busy evening for them there was only about 8 tables in there with the most guest being table of 3. Quite disappointed and probably won't return.

Waiting staff stood around not paying attention to customers even though quiet. Couldn’t remember even what the names of our coffees were. Food was bland and mostly flavourless, with vinegary hollandaise. Good variety for choice though and drinks were acceptable.

Waited 40mins for abit of breakfast. The full breakfast wasn't the best especially for a 10 pounds. I'd save your money and go elsewhere.

After several good conversations over phone and email, we were very disappointed with our experience here in the end. We had come to Bristol for the weekend and had chosen Buttermilk and Maple over a very broad option of excellent brunch places. Online it looked exactly like what we were hoping for. In reality not at all. The atmosphere was more bar like rather than cosy Cafe. We were asked to pre order our meals but we still had to wait 1 hour before our food arrived! So it was no longer breakfast but lunch time and safe to say we were starving! I ordered the veggie breakfast and I actually couldn't eat the veggies as they were not close to cooked. The drinks order took an age before they all arrived (I think some were actually forgotten). And finally we had several extra meals added to the bill that were not ours to pay for. Disappointed

My friends and I only ate here. The service was pleasurable and enjoyable. The food was also well portioned and tasty. However, I felt that the location being attached to the hotel was unfortunate as the atmosphere felt 'hotelly'. I also think it might have been affected by the dark lighting, particularly in the booths on the far side. As well as being dark, the fixed table lights are too big if you're trying to have a sociable time. I would like to go again. I have heard good reviews about the cocktails!

The chicken burger was fantastic. The tapas dishes weren't as good and lacked flavour; the portions were massive but I'd have happily traded some of the size for taste. The cocktails were good and great value and the service was excellent.

Loved everything about the place. Most importantly was the start of their liquor licence always good to know where to go early for the perfect G&T. Great food, had the pancakes with maple syrup. lovely booths to sit in or open tables. Had a lovely time. Will definitely go again and going to take my sister next time for an irish coffee before shopping.

The staff were great and the food was lovely. It would be good to see some more interesting vegetarian options in future, but the quinoa burger was delicious. Thanks for a great evening.
