About

The Milk Thistle has reopened, complete with a new outdoor space. You can make a table booking here.

They are currently running a reduced menu due to COVID-19, however in true Milk Thistle fashion they are still making awesome drinks!

A venue for the discerning drinker. The Milk Thistle is the big brother of Bristol’s hippest prohibition bar, Hyde & Co. Housed over four floors in one of the finest historic buildings in the city, The Milk Thistle incorporates a cocktail bar, lounge & private function rooms. Bookings are encouraged for groups over 8 persons.
