Gastro Pub
Panoramic sea views on Kemptown seafront. This owner run bistro pub offers home cooked food and wonderful Sunday lunches. Friendly, informal service in a beautiful historic building located midway between the pier and the marina. The Bristol is a sophisticated venue that welcomes well behaved dogs and children aged 12 and over for lunch. The evenings are reserved for the grown ups. Formerly The Bristol Hotel, our art deco bar still retains it's classic ambience to make the most of the sea views and offers guests something that little bit special.

    Had forgotten how nice the Bristol is. A friend of ours dropped in and we went for an impromptu dinner, with two ( well behaved) dogs. Where to go ??! Great relaxed evening, nice food.

    The Bristol Bar Sunday Roast 9.5/10 *disclaimer - I know the owners. This was the best roast we’ve had in a while. Two lamb shanks. Meat just fell off the bone. Crunch to the roasties. Lovely veg, with the added bonus of a bowl of cauliflower broccoli cheese. Really nice bottle of wine and great service. Couldn’t fault any of it really - if gravy was a bit thicker it would have been a 10. Definitely going back for more.

    As always the Bristol never disappoints- always great quality food along with a good wine list and attentive staff. All topped off by the wonderful views of the sea - just perfect in every way.

    Really gone downhill in quality but remains expensive. Inedible dry chicken and ”wild mushroom” seems to be synonymous with tinned mushroom...
