About The Ethicurean
We are connected to nature.
The Ethicurean restaurant, bar and kitchen focus on ingredients from the fields, forests, orchards, lakes & seas that surround our walled garden.
We offer an a la carte menu during lunch service. In the evening, we offer a set five-course menu with snacks & confectionary, priced at £59 per head. We also offer a 3 course option from the set menu, which is priced at £45 per head.
We shun industrially produced ingredients and rely on age old methods of preservation & fermentation to produce live and health giving food and drink often from within metres of the walls.
Culturally rich, lead by the seasons & tied to nature.
"The Ethicurean restaurant is set in the enchanting Barley Wood Walled Garden, a perfectly restored Victorian kitchen garden, bursting with fertile life. But far from your usual garden cafe fare, gardener Mark Cox sends his produce to the restaurant in the delightfully scuffed former glasshouse to be made by the team into some of the most delicious, innovative, vegetable-focused cuisine in the land."
-Marina O’Loughlin’s 2nd favourite restaurant in the UK.

We love coming here. The food, the place and its atmosphere delights all your senses. It is magical whatever time of year. The Ethicurean never disappoints.
Love the way the menu changes, no two visits have ever been the same. Always worth visiting what ever the weather & time of year, I like the way I’m taken back to my childhood regarding the kitchen garden, my dad would of loved it here.
We visited for the first time to celebrate my husbands birthday with 2 friends. We all greatly enjoyed our dining experience. We were not rushed, the setting was lovely, excellent food and friendly efficient service.
Absolutely delicious meal with great service.
Great food great service
Had a wonderful evening with delicious food. Highly recommend.
Our second visit and not the last! The food is prepared with great care and skill; there are lots of tastes and textures to savour. It’s a great place to eat and has it’s own character and style.
Another excellent experience, thankyou
It was my wife's 40th birthday, called the day before to ask for a nice spot to sit, which we had. However even with a 40th ballon no one gave any birthday wishes or made the meal special. We were just another customer paying a lot of money.
Superb Did not fail to deliver - excellent food and great service.
Met an old friend for lunch. Place is a little difficult to find. Car park is 150 yards from the restaurant (or, as the sign said, restuarant 😊) with a walk up a slope, difficult for some. Nice old green house converted to restaurant has a lovely view, and is pretty laid back. Staff friendly but not intrusive. OK cured salmon but the celeriac and other elements didn't seem quite balanced Beautifully cooked piece of hake, with mushrooms. Excellent roast potato side. OK Cortese half bottle served in carafe. £84 plus tip for 2.
Always a treat to come here. The inspired seasonal recipes are very much appreciated. Such a beautiful relaxed setting and great to see all those vegetables growing and on our way to our plates!
Fantastic food, great service, quite expensive compared to other similar establishments in the Bristol area but worth it for a special occasion type of meal. Marked down one star on atmosphere due to a noisy fellow diner and children running around during an evening meal but I guess these factors are not the fault of the restaurant specifically, though they could have been minimised/politely dealt with by the staff. Don't believe the ResDiary online booking system - told us it was fully booked for approx the next fortnight. Phoned up on the off-chance and there were plenty off free tables when we wanted. On the night the place was only half full! Overall though, very much looking forward to going back.....
Attentive staff provided a chair with arms as requested for my 86 year old mother. They were helpful and super good to her. The food was outstanding. We all had a fantastic experience.
Service wasn’t quite as good as usual
A gem of a place
First time and we loved it. We will definitely come back. Thank you
Once again I am delighted with the food, english wine , the room, the views and the friendly service. I will be back soon!
Lovely setting and an interesting menu
I enjoyed my visit to the Ethicurean so much, a secluded gem tucked away in an autumn fruiting walled garden. Clean fresh food - a delight! I will be returning...
Really enjoyed everything.
Truly superb in all aspects! Food, drink, service and setting were just sublime. Can’t wait to return, especially to try the cider 😀
Very limited lunch menu
Lovely staff, and ate the best Welsh rarebit ever!
