As a vegetarian of 20 years it's an absolute pleasure to discover Root. The create combinations of flavours and textures was delightful! We ordered almost everything bon the menu (table of 6) and there wasn't 1 dish I didn't like. Doughnut for desert was out of this world!! Will be back!

Can't wait to return. The food was excellent and I could have eaten everything on the menu. The chicory, roscof onions and mussels were the highlights. I've already recommended you to all my friends.

The food was tasty and the service was good. It wasn't a stand out 5 stars in anything but service. But 4 stars is very respectable in my eyes

This is the second time I have been to Root, but on this occasion it was as part of a work outing with my team who are based around the UK. We are a mixed bunch of carnivores, vegetarians and those who are a bit fussy, but each and every one of us thought the food, service, value and atmosphere was of exceptional quality. It was so good we were all talking about it in our meeting the next day and could quite easily have eaten it all again for brunch! A couple of non-Bristolians were shocked that they were in a shipping container as it doesn't feel that way when you are inside. Thanks so much to the whole team as you can see its a labour of love for all of them. It shows in every dish and interaction of the evening. Thank you!

This was our first time eating at Root & we will definitely be back. The food was delicious; a great mix of vegetable and fish small plates. Every one perfectly executed & full of flavour. The service was timely, informative and personable. All this was achieved in a relatively small space; a sign of great team work. Thanks. We can’t wait to eat at Root again. Honestly!

Root consistently provides the highest quality food, one of the very best restaurants in Bristol. Vegetables are transformed into the stars on the plate, always delicious often surprising. Just brilliant!

What a great place for a birthday lunch! We were horribly late but the staff were just lovely about it and the gorgeous food flowed quickly and without fuss. We will definitely be coming again and I have already recommended it to others.

Absolutely delicious and very interesting food. One of us is vegan and the other is vegetarian, and we felt we had an excellent selection from which to choose.
