Even though we were SO late (yeah thanks Bristol traffic), Root kept the table for us, we’re so blooming friendly and the food was as amazing as I remember it!

We were wowed right from The moment we came through the door! Your friendly staff catered for us even though we were running late. Great drinks selection, fully enjoyed my negroni! Menu was incredible,especially with vegan options. Was really cool to have the open kitchen as well and to be able to chat to all the chefs. Flavours were incredible. I’d been looking forward to coming for ages, you guys exceeded my expectations I and I’m now recommending you to everyone! The cherry on top was you guys putting a candle in my sisters pudding even though we didn’t ask you too. She felt very special. Thank you.

Excellent food, would definitely recommend sitting at the bar as you get a more "chef's table" experience.

Lovely smiling waitress, Georgie. Excellent food and drink, but it was the atmosphere which I most enjoyed. Perfect balence between professional and relaxed, a tricky thing to get right so well done.

We love Root! One thing is that when i got confirmation of my booking, it came through as Chicken Shed. Whilst i know that's what the container used to be, some will not and may get confused. Lyndsay

Some of the most surpising/delicious food I've had - really interesting combinations. And the best fried chicken ever, and I've had a lot...

Cooking of the highest standard - the people in the kitchen really know what they are doing! Only marked down atmosphere slightly because the seating is not massively comfortable and the restaurant was pretty smoky - better extractor fans needed perhaps! I guess to be expected given that we're in a shipping container..? Overall though, excellent meal.

Tremendously inventive dishes prepared by visibly committed and enthusiastic staff and served by equally enthusiastic waiting staff. Can’t fault this place, it’s brilliant.
