Add Colonnade to your Itinerary

Colonnade bar


Colonnade is an exciting new eatery on Bristol’s ever-evolving restaurant scene, offering a fresh take on modern European cuisine.

Set behind the breathtaking Bristol Byzantine colonnades, this respectfully refurbished design poses an incredible new space for you to enjoy, be it for a lively dining experience, or a pre or post show drink at the bar.

The team will do everything in their power to accommodate your needs from dietary requirements to special bookings, and speedy seatings to accommodate show times.

The food is consciously ethical, focussed on hyper-local, seasonal, sustainable sourcing that celebrates the bounty of incredible farmers and producers in the area. The menu is low-carbon impact with over half of our choices being plant-based. All fish is highly responsibly sourced, and you can expect the best in holistically reared, organic meat, from pasture-fed, free roaming animals.

Expect a selection of small and large plates, ideal both to share and enjoy individually. The restaurant also offers a speedy set menu for lunch and pre/post-show dining, plus a weekend brunch menu.

Children are well taken care of with a colourful menu of classics, packed with seasonal nutrients and fun indulgence.

The drinks menu offers great local, classic and naturally produced wines, in-house cocktails, and a showcase of local breweries and distilleries.

While booking for dining is encouraged for busier times, there will always be a selection of tables for walk-ins, so come and try this season’s delicious offering for yourself.
