COR has many meanings. It originates however from the Latin word ‘heart’. And at the heart of COR, is their desire to bring together their love of hospitality in a friendly and welcoming place that is inclusive to all. ​

That’s why everyone is welcome at COR, whether for a small bite with a friend, or yourself, a light lunch with colleagues or a special occasion with the family. There is a reservation system, but walk-ins and spontaneity are always encouraged. ​

The food and drink at COR are influenced by the team's love of the Mediterranean. The menu plays to chef/owner Mark’s fine dining training, yet also incorporates the more fun, sharing style food they love and that Mark has been working with over the last 6 years. It's a small menu that is seasonally updated and will be created with the aim of reducing waste and surplus in the kitchen with creativity from the team shown on the menus. ​

All diets and allergens can be catered for, including vegetarian, vegan and gluten free.

All babies, kids and dogs are welcome. Food/bottle warming, highchairs, buggy parking available. Baby changing facilities in toilets.

About COR

COR is a family run business brought to you by husband and wife team Karen and Mark Chapman, who met working in hospitality in Sydney (many years ago!), before moving to Bristol and setting up life together!

Mark leads the restaurant, bringing over 16 years’ of experience in the industry together in COR, his first own business. ​

After 4 years of formal training, Mark worked in world class 6 star resorts, ‘hat’ restaurants in Sydney, the Michelin star Bath Priory Hotel and, over the last 6 years, as Executive Chef of Bravas, Gambas, Cargo Cantina and Masa + Mezcal. In the last 3 years, Mark has exclusively managed Gambas tapas bar and restaurant, which was awarded a Michelin plate in 2021 and 2022 under Mark’s leadership.

All of these experiences have shaped and influenced COR so far and Mark has no intention to stop learning and growing now. Alongside Mark is a brilliant and passionate team who are already helping to grow and make COR.


Restaurant is accessible via the front entrance. Toilets are accessible with a neighbour restaurant 200m up the road. Ramp/level access throughout. Accessible parking is available on street and neighbouring streets. Menus available in large print format. Assistance dogs welcome.


All dogs are welcome at COR. COR is a family, neighbourhood restaurant and dogs are always welcome


Sustainability and farm to table is very important to the team. This is not limited to the produce they use. They passionately believe in investing in people and their community. That is why COR offers apprenticeships through Bristol City and Weston colleges.

The people behind COR have worked with the Bristol Food Union, Square Food Foundation, the Mazi Project, Caring in Bristol and with West of England Combined Authority (WECA) on various projects to promote the hospitality industry, support those in need and use food as a means to empower young people in Bristol.

They will be looking for ways to continue and grow these relationships with COR. If you have an idea how they can work with the community please get in touch!
