About No Man's Grace
No Man’s Grace on Chandos Road, Cotham is a restaurant & bar co-founded by John Watson and Julu Irvine whose shared passions for food and drink is reflected in the simple elegance of the small plates and the concise but unusual choices of wines, cocktails and bottled beers. In the restaurant we provide fine dining in an informal context; the team here provide a laid back, communal style of eating coupled with easygoing service in a familiar environment.
Sunday lunch superb, beef cooked to perfection, probably the tastiest Sunday lunch we have had in a very long time. Service as usual excellent
Staff were really friendly and smiley. Atmosphere was lovely. Food was well cooked and good value. Would highly recommend, thank you for a great evening.
Food was absolutely delightful. Would say that the menu was a bit limited on a Sunday, but the quality of the food made up for this. The only thing was we arrived at 2:30 and all of the roast beef had sold out which was a bit disappointing given it was one of 4 options. I think there were some staffing difficulties, as when we arrived, our table hadn’t been reserved, and we were asked if three of us could sit on a table barely big enough for 2 and were crammed into a corner! The service was then very slow, presumably to prioritise the few larger tables eating at the same time. Then our bill came and it was asking for over double the price of our food, we then asked to rectify it and it came back wrong again! When we eventually got it correct, a service charge had been added at the bottom which we asked not to pay given that we had been largely ignored all lunch time! I have been here before and it was all delightful, so I’m sure it was a one-off for No-Mans Grace, so hopefully it will be better if we return on another occasion, given how wonderful the food is.
Thanks for the great meal!
The haggis was absolutely delicious. The only criticism re the food is that the “cranachan”, while nice, bore no resemblance to cranachan and was more like posh rhubarb and custard.
Hi, glad you enjoyed most of the Burns Night tasting menu. A cranachan is simply cream (makes up around 90% of our custard), raspberries (we swapped for Rhubarb) and oats (we had oat biscuit crumbled on top). Not sure that "bore no resemblance" is really accurate.
Delicious food, excellent service and a really nice touch of cake and Sauternes as it was my wife’s birthday. Very quiet as a late Jan Friday lunch but would definitely recommend.
The best roast potatoes in Bristol (or the world). Everything else is great too - but the roast potatoes are to die for.
Laid back, friendly attentive staff, incredible food and lovely ambiance.
Food and drinks were excellent. However we thought the service could have been a lot better. May be it was one of the busiest time and day but still. One of our guest’s desert was forgotten. It came on reminding and the team checking with us again what the order was and when the two of us already finished! The team straight away mentioned they won’t charge for it which was a reasonable gesture however when the bill came they again mentioned the late desert hasn’t been charged but it was! When we checked with one of the team member the answer we got was ‘the service charge is discretionary’! Nothing to do with what we were asking! That showed the service was rushed and there was a lack of attention! They realised they had made a mistake only two of us had ordered 3 course meals and one of us 2 course. They thought all three of us ordered 3 course meals and hence they charged us 2 three course and 1 two course thinking they’ve compensated for the late desert. They corrected the bill at the end. We did pay the full discretionary service charge inspite of it at least the team had good intentions but I would have expected overall a lot better service. A small observation was that one of the main course plate was chipped. The restaurant is small and cosy. On arrival we were given a table right next to the entrance which wasn’t ideal but they made an arrangement where 3 of us sat on 2 seater table still opposite the entrance but a slightly better position. I noticed they offered the other table two their next 2 guests which they declined too and chose some other table. That table remained empty during 2 hours that clearly showed that position is not suitable. Next time if I decide to visit, I may choose a quieter day of the week for better service and request a table in the far end of the room as where we were was getting chilly every time the guests came and left as it was close to the entrance.
Great restaurant, excellent food and service in a relaxed environment.
We quite enjoyed our meal and service.
The guineafowl, shrimp, chicken liver, mash and cod were all superb! The food always amazes us and always go away wanting to come back. Thank you for such great hospitality yet again.
The food was outstanding and the surprising combinations were delicious - who knew you could have sweet potato cheesecake! Oh and the mashed potato is insanely good.
The partridge was the reason we made the booking. It was not on offer but the cod was delicious. The starter was chicken livers and celeriac veluta which again were a dish we would happilly eat again. We shared pudding with shortbread which was great. The only slight disappointment was the bread which was not as nice as previously. I rarely recommend a restaurant but if asked, I would certainly do so.
Coped very well with our food intolerances. Well presented good food. Service was informal and friendly but a little slow on a busy evening.
We are both experienced and fussy diners. Unable to find fault. Excellent value for money. Brilliant.
Fantastic food, service and atmosphere. Will be recommending to everyone. Thank you for a lovely evening!
Really great Christmas meal for foodies. Wines were stunning!
Really lovely meal and wine. Thank you all
Amazing food with friendly & efficient service. Average decor. Could do with a heavy curtain to stop cold air coming in via the main door every time it's opened (a lot). And maybe a more curated music selection would help the atmos a lot.
Everything was fantastic.
What a great party night - Sicilian food and wine - fantastic!
Do not think twice about going for dinner - Definitely go ! They have nailed the balance between fine food and relaxed atmosphere.
Myself and my husband had a very relaxed and enjoyable lunch time meal. The service was quick but enough time to allow us to enjoy a few hours away from everything. The food was delicious and we would definitely recommend No Man's Grace and return again soon. Thank you very much.
