Roast Dinner


The Old Market Assembly on West Street, is a venue like no other. Set over two floors in a beautiful building that was once home to a bank, the ornate domed ceiling and large front windows bring in lots of bright, natural light. A wood burning stove keeps things toasty in the winter, and during the summer months the fantastic roof terrace offers an awesome sunset view over Bristol. And it isn’t only the building that is like no other...

Awarded the highest rating from the Sustainable Restaurant Association, The Old Market Assembly is proud to offer a seasonal and sustainable flexitarian lunch and dinner menu showcasing local supplier produce with creative, flavourful dishes, loads of vegan and vegetarian options, and a nutritious, tasty kids menu.

Also home to the Wardrobe Theatre, a 100 seat studio theatre for comedy, drama and subversive theatre, chose a pre-theatre sitting giving you plenty of time to enjoy delicious, freshly prepared food before a performance. 

The Old Market Assembly also boasts an enviable drinks list including locally distilled gins and vodkas, great Bristol brewed beers and ciders, and a wine list made up of responsibly sourced natural and biodynamic wines. The perfect place to grab yourself an after-work drink, or soak up the Sunday atmosphere with the ever popular roast dinners served from midday until 7.30pm every week. 

At the weekend it’s PARTY TIME! Every Saturday from 10pm, Assembly Nights brings the biggest, brightest and best entertainment to the brand new-stage. From the ridiculous to the sublime via local Bristol bands, touring acts, cabaret, drag and performance, Saturdays are a big ball of inclusive party fun!
