“Fun Atmosphere, Great Staff”
Reviewed 29 October 2012

We came to Bristolbar for nightcaps after dinner and loved the staff! It is a British Bar and they are very big on gin. Most of the staff spoke English, so there was no language barrier. The decor is dark and romantic and would probably be great for a date. They had a pub-like menu, with hints of Spanish cuisine. They also passed around appetizers samples which was a nice touch.

“A bit disappointing”
Reviewed 22 September 2012

We went to this restaurant at 8:30 on a midweek night and were the only 2 diners, although there were a few people drinking. The service when we arrived was attentive, as you'd expect being the only 2 diners, however, once our feed had been served there was no-one to be seen, the only way you get get another drink, dessert or the bill was to go and look for someone at the bar.

Having said that, the quality of the food which is mainly English Fayre was good, the ostrich burger is well worth a try, but don't have the curry unless you like super bland (I don't think there was any spice in at all).

Needless to say we didn't have another drink - we went elsewhere!

“The place for gins”
Reviewed 13 July 2012

Perfect place for a gin and tonic with friends. Did not try the food, just went for a drink after dinner.
Large gin and tonics for a few euros, nice and comfortable sofa seats.
Love the "end your gin and start to sin" motto.

“Friendly and stylish bar with great gin selection”
Reviewed 11 January 2012

I didn't eat here, only drank, but the gin is great! Very friendly staff, comfortable and stylish bar, and the choices of gin, plus the presentation was brilliant. A perfect place for a quiet drink to relax, especially for Bristolians who are a little home sick.
