About The Old Market Assembly
The Old Market Assembly is first and foremost a place for people to meet. Our aim is to create an environment where culture, food, drink, music and events connect people from all walks of life.
Given our proud link with the LGBTQ+ scene we were the first venue in Bristol to sign up for the ‘Zero Tolerance’ campaign committing to provide a safe respectful space for anyone and everyone.
Keeping things accessible is important. We are here for everyone and that means ensuring everyone can come. Affordable quality is at the heart of everything we do.
We are a triple bottom line business, putting equal emphasis on people, planet and profit. As proud members of the Sustainable Restaurant Association we are accountable to making this a reality. We are simply trying to be a positive force in all the things we love most and we welcome feedback as to how we might improve.
We use the Snug as a meeting room for our Bristol Amblers Walking for Health planning meetings and it works brilliantly - just the right size for up to about 10 people. Good coffee and excellent service. We will be back!
Brilliant food. Excellent staff who were friendly and efficient
I love the place, the atmosphere, the food, everything. Only minor issue was the wait time at the bar, but no big deal!
The sharing plates, whilst good we’re seriously overpriced. A small bowl of coleslaw or of potatoes for £8.00!! Really?... Lovely staff and great atmosphere.
We arrived early and as a table became available we were smoothly fitted in
Delicious food, every single dish; quick friendly service at the bar & table; good atmosphere and an amazing gig.
Service was great - really friendly and welcoming as was the atmosphere generally. The food was lovely - freshly cooked, beautiful flavours. Our only gripe was the mackerel dish we ordered consisted of one very small fillet - enough for three mouthfuls each. But, that said, they were three really tasty mouthfuls! We will definitely be back.
The sound check from the band rather dominated the early part of the evening. We arrived early for our table planning a quiet drink before eating but conversation was impossible. However we now know not to arrive before 5.30!
We had a lovely evening and the food was delicious.
We liked the starters, but found the pizzas rather bland and too sweet.
Lovely atmosphere and lovely staff - especially our smiley spanish waitress!
Such a good atmosphere I absolutely love it. Good food and special diets catered for.
Great roast and cheap!
My reservation was not booked when I got to the restaurant. Food was great though.
The staff were very helpful and accommodating. Will book again :D The food was good too.
Everything else was nice but I was quite disappointed there was no vegetarian or vegan option left when we ordered at 5pm, 2 hours before the roast stops being served
Lovely friendly venue with a great atmosphere. We were there for Sunday lunch...food was a little slow arriving but well worth the wait.
Great food and great service - thank you! Enjoyed a brilliant show after a fab meal.
Theatre space was fairly basic and seating not that comfortable. They had run out of most of the food by the time we arrived (6 pm) We weren't allowed to sit in the seating we wanted as it had reserved signs across the row, which were removed after the performance had started.
Went to old market assembly today after hearing a lot of good things. Firstly we were hit by the overpowering stench of smoke which actually got to the point where my daughters eyes were running and she was complaining. I was disappointed by the fact there was not a chicken option on the menu and little options for children. However I ordered the pork belly and cauliflower cheese at an extra four pound. The food came within a reasonable amount of time however was luke warm, and the cauliflower extremely dry bland and really disappointing. I have no problem paying for a meal I enjoy but £17 for stinking clothes, and a mediocre meal is not the best
Great food and ideal for work do's and large parties
One of the best roasts in Bristol! Prompt service. Enthusiastic staff, great menu selection and drink selection.
Too noisy a venue for food...tiny menu but very tasty fish dish. Wouldnt recommend cheese tom pizza as didnt tast v.authentic with basil not oregano. Lovely staff but maybe overworked or understaffed. Wud like a tip jar to leave something for staff as they work really hard in challenging nouisy environment and deserve recognition for this from clientele. 🤗
Great food ... great service ...unpretentious and utterly delicious!
