About The Ethicurean

Welcome to The Ethicurean Restaurant, Bristol. Here we invite you to slow down a little, to share our passion for delicious food at a more gentle pace. Take time to explore our Victorian Walled Garden or just watch the world go by. Reflect, reconnect, be curious and creative. Or simply sit back, take a breath and indulge your senses.

Naturally curious and guided by the seasons, we offer an ever-changing menu that draws on the freshest ingredients, with most of our vegetables and salads coming from our walled garden. Our meat and fish are sourced locally from producers who lead the way in sustainable practices, and to add a little magic, we forage, ferment, cure and pickle to ensure ultimate deliciousness in every mouthful.

Always experimenting, always creating, we pour as much care and attention into our drinks as we do our restaurant dishes. Our bar is alive with experimentation and invention. You’ll discover gut-friendly favourites such as kombuchas, kvass and kefir, while our shrubs made from live mother cider-vinegar are always on the brew.

If we can tempt you away from sobriety, our cocktails are the stuff of legends, while our seasonally inspired wine list showcases the wonders of natural, low-intervention wines.

Beautiful setting bought to even greater heights by a stunning Array of drinks both alcoholic and non perfectly accompany a gastronomic flight of fancy. If this is scarcity then bring it on!

The staff were exceptionally helpful and friendly, even giving us a lift home when there were no taxis available. The food was varied, tasty and innovative!

One of my dishes was experimental but disappointing (the tacos). Seemingly simple construction for a £13 starter, but with overpowering flavours. A good lunch, but overshadowed by Coombeshead Farm the following day!

Really well crafted dishes, deep savoury flavours lifted by some ingenious twists. And a glazed carrot which belied its modest description... Excellent pre dinner drinks too.

The Ethicurean was recommended & I can see why. My family and I included my three year old grandson and we were all perfectly catered for, including a gluten free diet. A tranquil, calm atmosphere, attentive & caring staff, delightful views and a wonderful food and drink experience for us all, thank you.

Eating at The Ethicurean was a fantastic culinary journey. The calm and casual atmosphere was relaxing and the staff were attentive but not intrusive. each dish was unique and distinguishable, hoping to return at a different time of year

Overall an amazing lunch. The beetroot starter in particular was sublime. Only gripe was that my main course (venison) was pretty cold (we were in a bit of a hurry so I didn’t send it back). Will be returning

As anticipated, we thoroughly enjoyed our meal. The children, aged 5 and 2, particularly liked the crispy rabbit and octopus. Being able to run around the garden between courses was a great advantage. The staff and fellow customers were very tolerant of our exuberant children.

I love it here so much so took my family here to celebration my graduation. Everything was great apart from the really slow service. I think it must have been 45 mins between our starters and main, and it wasn't even busy. Nevertheless I loved my experience, and I will be coming back!

We had a great 60th birthday celebration. Two comments: iIs it possible that access may be limited for the less able bodied ? Plus I did intend to inform the staff, but there was a terrible smell in the ladies- emanating I think, from the washing machine.

Absolutely gorgeous meal, knowledgeable and welcoming staff. A shame the weather was so terrible as we would have liked to have a proper walk around the beautiful gardens. Will be back!
