Bristol is home to one Michelin-starred restaurant and several more that have been awarded a Bib Gourmand, Green Star or Michelin Plate. Here's the full list of restaurants that have been given an award in the city...

The Michelin Plate

This distinction is given to restaurants singled out in the Michelin Guide for particularly 'Good Cooking' in their area. The current restaurants listed are:

  • Adelina Yard
  • Casa
  • Chef's Table 
  • The Clifton
  • littlefrench
  • Little Hollows
  • Paco Tapas
  • The Pony Chew Valley 

Bib Gourmand

This Michelin accolade goes to restaurants which provide "exceptionally good food at moderate prices". Bristol had six Bib Gourmand for the 2024 edition of the guide.

The Blaise Inn

A cosy pub in leafy Henbury, just a stone's throw from the scenic Blaise Estate and Blaise Hamlet, The Blaise Inn is at the pinnacle of gastropub dining in Bristol.

The Michelin Guide says: 'This simply decorated village inn serves good value, traditional British dishes cooked with a skilful, modern approach – make sure you save room for dessert! As well as quality ales and a well-chosen wine list, you'll find a pleasant rear courtyard in which to enjoy them.'


A compact 14-cover restaurant located on the top floor of Cargo 1, which is popular with locals and critics alike. Cargo is a collection of converted shipping containers in Bristol's trendy Wapping Wharf development, overlooking the harbour.

The Michelin Guide says: 'Dishes are rustic, assured and flavour-packed; for the tasting menu, book the 4-seater kitchen counter. The panna cotta is a must!'

The Clifton

This paired-back gastropub in Clifton Village offers locally-inspired and rustic British cooking in a relaxed setting.

The Michelin Guide says: 'The menu includes both small plates and larger sharing options – like braised short rib or Cull Yaw shepherd’s pie – which are generous in both size and flavour. Well-priced wines and local ales are on hand for extra refreshment, and midweek sees a particularly good value lunch menu.'


Situated on the bustling North Street in Bedminster, COR is a relaxed restaurant with a menu which takes its influences from across Europe, especially the Mediterranean.

The Michelin Guide says: 'Its look is somewhere between a Mediterranean restaurant and a tapas bar, with some counter dining and shelves bursting with cookery books and wine but, more importantly, it’s imbued with an air of contagious positivity and is a perfect fit for this buzzy neighbourhood. Dishes like hake with mussels or Tropea onion with hazelnut beurre noisette really hit the spot – and the charcuterie and cheeses are also good.'

A charming restaurant in the heart of the city, Marmo offers a range of lip-smacking small plates alongside an impressive wine selection.

The Michelin Guide says: 'The rustic look is a perfect fit for this on-trend osteria-cum-wine-bar, where Cosmo Sterck prepares a concise menu of flavour-packed Italian dishes in the open kitchen.'


Located next door to Box-E, it really goes to show the standard of dining available in Wapping Wharf. Veggies are the star of the show here, with a couple of delicious meatier dishes too - the problem will be deciding which dishes to order...

The Michelin Guide says: 'This busy, welcoming little restaurant occupies five first floor shipping containers on the old wharf. Produce from small local suppliers is used in simple yet flavour-packed small plates formed around vegetables. They have a modern, sometimes intriguing style and inventive touches.'

Michelin Green Star

The green star is given to restaurants who demonstrate a strong commitment to sustainability.


A cosy neighbourhood bistro in Redland, Wilsons has been a much-loved part of Bristol's food scene since it opened in 2016.

The Michelin Guide says: 'Wilsons is one of those appealing neighbourhood places that works in pure harmony, with everyone from the chefs to the service team sharing the same ethos. Sustainability leads the way, with generously proportioned, highly seasonal cooking showcasing ingredients from their smallholding.'

Michelin Star


The latest of Bristol's restaurants to receive a coveted Michelin star, Bulrush has been making waves in the city for its dazzling dishes ever since it opened in the leafy suburb of Kingsdown in late 2015.

The Michelin Guide says: 'At first glance it might appear quite modest but this sweet neighbourhood restaurant comes with an appealingly relaxed and cosy feel, helped along by an amiable team. It’s set over two floors; ask to stay downstairs to soak up the atmosphere from the on-view kitchen.

Top-notch seasonal ingredients are either foraged or organic, and preserving and pickling play a key role on the imaginative, well-balanced and deftly prepared tasting menu. Combinations are original and provide plenty of contrasts and flavours are clear and natural.

The chefs often join the serving team in delivering a dish or two to the table and you can feel their innate pride. The astutely chosen wine flight creates the perfect partnership.'
