Small plates at The Granary


The Granary, an all-day dining restaurant, has opened its doors in the heart of Bristol, promising a culinary experience that fuses rich history with innovative, locally-sourced cuisine. Situated in a historic Byzantine landmark, The Granary is poised to become a staple for residents, office workers, creatives, and visitors seeking an exceptional dining experience.

Inspired by Byzantine trade routes, The menu places a strong emphasis on ingredients and provenance that aims to seamlessly blend tradition and innovation in its culinary offerings.

The star ingredients are grains, meat, and vegetables, prepared to perfection on an open fire and a revolving flatbread stone oven. The menu takes diners on a tantalizing journey, offering small plates like white fish tempura, blackened courgette, and cider-brined boneless chicken. For heartier options, seasonal mains cooked over fire include Lamb Kofta and Grilled XXL Tiger Prawns. They also serve vibrant salads and signature desserts, such as Harveys Bristol cream trifle and slow-cooked pineapple with coconut and kafir sorbet to round off the culinary experience.

The commitment to sourcing locally is evident throughout The Granary's offerings. Grains come from Shipton Mill, day boat fish from Wing of St Mawes, meat from Story Farms, and vegetables from Degusta. Milk is sourced from Bruton Dairy, showcasing a true celebration of the region's bounty.

To complement the dining experience, The Granary offers a selection of beverages, including freshly ground coffee from Wogan, pressed Somerset apple juice, smoothies, Counter Culture Kombucha, Lost and Grounded beers, Branch cider, and spirits from Bristol Distilling Company. This dedication to local sourcing extends to the drink menu, aligning with The Granary's overall commitment to supporting local independent businesses.

The Granary's interior design reflects a commitment to community and history. Upcycling historical elements, including a 100-year-old butcher's block, seamlessly blends the building's Byzantine history and architecture with a contemporary and warm feel.

The Granary Club

In addition to its dining offerings, The Granary has an exciting announcement—the upcoming opening of The Granary Club. Serving as a cocktail bar and live music space, The Granary Club pays homage to the original Granary club and Bristol's rich cultural history.

The Granary stands out as a unique all-day dining destination in Bristol, combining historical significance with a contemporary culinary vision. From its carefully curated menu to its commitment to local sourcing and community collaboration, The Granary promises a memorable and immersive dining experience for locals and visitors alike.

Whether it’s for a coffee, cocktails, breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner, The Granary is not just a restaurant; it's a celebration of Bristol's rich history, local talent, and a place to create memories.
