We went to the cloak and dagger for my girlfriends birthday and we were incredibly impressed with everything from the service we received to the incredible quality of the food! When the bill came we couldn’t believe the good value we’d received, food that good usually does not come at that price, very impressed.
Great service as always. The courtyard sheltered us from the elements. Thanks!
Good but nothing to write home about
Lovely everything despite the rain. Excellent asparagus with a smile!
Tasty food, great service, good value for money. Lovely outside courtyard
The setting and atmosphere was nice but the food was very poor given the cost. £9.50 for a slice of tough sourdough with scrambled eggs, and two very thin rashers of bacon. Staff were nice but food does not make up for it.
Beautiful evening amazing food and drinks, we’ll be back
Love this place! I went for the first time last weekend. It was the first time going out for food after lockdown and it didn’t disappoint! We sat in the little courtyard out the back and it’s super cute and comfortable. We had brunch and the eggs Benedict and florentine were amazing! Better than I’ve had in high star hotels! Highly recommend. Also the staff were really lovely, welcoming and accommodating. I felt very safe with the Covid regulations. I’ll definitely be going back ASAP!
Amazing Sunday Roast, both vegetarian and meat options
Nice little gem in the heart of Stokes Croft. Food was delicious.
Really cool venue lively so staff great food thank for a amazing night x
Gorgeous roast with perfect veggies to go with it including cauliflower cheese without having to order it as a side 10/10
We loved the food here! Very creative and diverse. Would absolutely go back again.
Having recently started to open on a Friday afternoon for lunch I highly recommend. Good to support a local business who does exceptional food in such a lovely quirky environment! x
Great food and service.
The roast dinner was one of the more expensive roasts but very nice and flavoursome
The place was under construction so very noisy as music was put on loud to compensate. Menu was via a website but no signal downstairs so had to look on waiter's phone which felt awkward and pressured us into a decision. We visited for Sunday lunch and the food was lovely although was disappointed the vegan option didn't come with the same trimmings, especially as I am not actually vegan just didn't want the meat options. No gravy either. That said, the atmosphere was quite buzzing even for a Sunday afternoon and the food was tasty. Nice enough place, but probably wouldn't rush back.
Best food I've had in Bristol in 20 years. Genuinely! And no, I don't know the people who run it. Just great food!
2 staff members seemed rude, the drink we had was not very good. One staff made up for the rest.
The Sunday lunch menu was outstanding and genuinely one of (if not) the best I’ve ever had. Staff really friendly, nice relaxed atmosphere and will definitely be going back. Would highly recommend.
Good COVID processes. Service was really attentive and really lovely Sunday lunch. Quality of food was surprising
Amazing food!!! Had the beef short rib, it fell apart and all the sides was just as nice
You must try the trout starter and also the beetroot! Winners for us!
Great food and excellent service. Waiters were very attentive and helpful. Food was delicious! Can't wait to go back!
Get this food at these prices while you can! This chef is going places. Fine dining and creative and tasty food at very reasonable prices.
We had every nibble, and every small plate (and virtually every cocktail!) -nothing but praise for this place. Great service, Covid restrictions not too restricting-it almost felt like a normal night out. The food was magnificent really tasty loads of interesting flavours, cocktails delish, and waiters’ didn’t hang around bringing us new ones. Thanks guys for a memorable night out.
Really impressed. Loved the decor. The table plan completely adheres to social distancing. Food delicious. Already planning our next evening there
The food was amazing, had a very good roast. Not your average flavours - in a good way
Great food as always!!
This place is amazing, the love that goes in to this food is incredible. I had the beef rib roast and in was probably the best roast dinner I have eaten! I will definitely be back to sample some other dishes. my husbands pork was also amazing.
First class food. Loved it! Great vegetarian options too
Excellent food -best Sunday lunch I’ve ever had! Will be returning 😋
We thought my partner couldn’t have a starter as they all had gluten in them. However the chef made the effort to come out and talk to us to see if he could provide something else. He gave my partner a fantastic sushi dish especially for him. What fantastic service, they really went out of their way. The roast was also fantastic!
So pleased we chose to eat at Cloak and Dagger. The food was very impressive, we enjoyed every single dish. It's clear a lot of thought went in to the menu and is the product of a true food lover. Highly recommend!
Really delicious food and excellent service. Will be returning!
I ordered what I thought might be a simple burger, but it was packed with deliciousness. Lots of rich flavour and texture and beautifully presented. Also - Pickled chips! Might be one of the best ideas ever.
Discovered during eat out to help out via recommendation of a friend and was not disappointed! Super chill vibe, beautiful food clearly made with passion and friendly, informal service.
What can I say. I think this is one of the best meals for taste I've had in Bristol (I converted from huge meat eater to vegan!) But also, my friend said the same and he was a huge fan of the pickled chicken starter (best fried chicken in Bristol hands down). The service was impeccable. Never awkward. Friendly. Personable. Happy people. Started with an off menu cocktail downstairs and the bill came to a very reasonable price with 3 drinks. Considering it was eat out to help out, £42 bill so in normal circumstances,. £62 for a 3 course meal and 3 drinks for 2. Great for a date or if you just want some great food. Will defo go back
Quirky setting, food is focused around vegan food service was fantastic
Great place, completely not what I expected. Well thought out menu and delicious as well.
Quirky place to eat with beautifully presented dishes, great value for money and really tasty.
