  4. Top 5 Bristol New Restaurant Openings

With many restaurants sadly becoming terminal victims of the Covid closures, new openings feel more important than ever; rejuvenating the city's food scene and infusing it with much-needed energy and vitality. Here are 5 new Bristol restaurants that we’ve got our eyes on...

Pony Bistro

Local Michelin-star chef Josh Eggleton is ready for a change. Enter Pony Bistro which has opened on Bristol's buzzy North Street in a warehouse building next-door to brewery Bristol Beer Factory. Serving up British bistro classics with a modern edge, the quality of the cookery is superb. Expect local ingredients from the nearby Chew Valley with a new contender for Bristol's best Sunday roast... 

Where? 291 North Street, Bristol BS3 1JP.

Bank Bristol

BANK Bristol is a new eatery that spans the three categories of modern millennial dining; speciality coffee, seasonal cooking and special cocktails. Created by coffee professional 27-year-old Dan O'Regan (UK Barista Championship finalist) Dan has created something new in Totterdown with ingredients sourced properly and cooked at their best.

Where? 107 Wells Road, Bristol.


Opening on the former site of much-loved food hall Source Food, FoodieVietnam is a new Vietnamese restaurant that is now welcoming guests inside for the first time. Set in the wildly popular St Nicholas Market, the venue is run by catering old hand Dung Nguyen who previously managed a Chinese restaurant in Clifton. See you in there for some hot Pho next time it rains...

Where? 1,2 and 3, Exchange Ave, Bristol, BS1 1JW.


Namak is an exciting new Indian dining restaurant openeded by Bristol chef Harris Massey (who previously worked at Dishoom) situated in St Werburghs, Bristol. With a focus on delivering high-quality Indian food to East Bristol (something we've been desiring for a while now) you can expect sizzling curries and a rotation of chef specials that are as colourful as they are tasty. 

Where? 98 Mina Road, Bristol, BS2 9XW.

Tomo No Ramen

With a current menu built around the flavours of miso ramen, Tomo No Ramen has joined the ranks of excellent Japanese food fare. Veterans of the pop-up restaurant game (in Bristol's Old Market), Tomo No Ramen have finally got their own place on West Street which is one of the city's oldest roads. The results so far seem to be excellent. 

Where? 55 West Street, Bristol, BS2 0BZ.
