4. Lido Spa - unique to the Lido and are the same products you will find in their showers and massage rooms.
Each week has a different offering. Order by midday on Thursday to collect from the Lido between 3pm and 5pm on either Friday or Saturday.
The Lido is a uniquely Bristolian experience: a 21st century take on a Victorian institution. The restaurant sits in the old viewing gallery, with a wonderful vista of the pool, which is dramatically lit at night. The Lido menu is updated daily and takes inspiration from Middle Eastern and Mediterranean cuisine. The chef uses only the best local, seasonal produce, some of which is grown in The Lido’s own kitchen garden in Pill and the wood-fired oven gives a distinct, subtly smoky style, as food critic Jay Rayner concurs below.
“Here, on a menu which takes much of its inspiration from southern Europe, and many of its ingredients from its own kitchen garden, wood roasting is reserved for quail and venison, fish and potatoes, and that marvellous bread. Flavours are big and the essentials carefully managed. They make very fine pasta, for example, of the soft, silky, egg-yellow type, used here in ravioli of venison. The meat is long-braised to a tangle of glossy fibres, the pockets dressed with soft cubes of roasted pumpkin and an artery-hounding sage butter. Discs of more pumpkin turn up deep fried, drizzled with a slick of honey and with crumbly lumps of a mild goat's cheese, the whole sprinkled with oregano. It is a very simple, very effective plateful.” Jay Rayner, The Observer.
The poolside bar serves some of the best cakes and pastries in Bristol, all home baked by our craft baker, alongside loose leaf teas and freshly roasted coffee. If you’re after a quick bite downstairs, tapas and light meals are served from 12pm until 10pm, and in the summer, you can take advantage of the outside sun terrace, whilst watching the swimmers plough their lengths!
