Make trying new food places your New Year’s resolution for 2024, as Bristol is offering plenty of them this year, 11 new eateries to be precise! We hope you’re hungry…read on to find out what might become your new favourite places to eat and drink in the city.

1B Pitville ii 
So you may already know about 1B Pitville on Cotham Hill…well, they have a best kept (or not) secret. They are introducing a second venue, and if the original is anything to go by, we cannot wait! We’re keeping our eyes and ears peeled as to which neighbourhood they will be residing in.

Having had a few setbacks, it is rumoured that 2024 is the year BoxHall on Welsh Back opens. We’re intrigued and excited to experience the “brand-new premium food and beverage concept” it promises to be. 

This one has already arrived in the city, no need to wait! Located on Colston Street in the beautiful Bristol Beacon, the fresh new, sustainable-forward restaurant provides a fresh take on modern European cuisine. Expect stunning interiors and artisanal local produce.

The Colosseum

One of Bristol’s most distinctive pubs in Redcliffe is staying as a pub, with its new owners pledging to turn it into a “vibrant and vibey” late-night watering hole.

Condesa on Whiteladies Road brings vibrant Mexican flavours and decor from owners Kieran and Imogen Waite, also responsible for Bravas, Gambas, and Cargo Cantina – so you know it’s going to be good. 

Island Poké
Bristol’s first location of the poke chain Island Poké will debut on the Clifton Triangle in a former Subway. They boast creating Europe’s original vegan poke bowl and collaborations with other restaurants like Rosa’s Thai, which we mention later on…

Left Handed Giant bar
In 2023, the Left Handed Giant team successfully relaunched Renato’s on King Street. Looking ahead to 2024, they have ambitious plans to open a new bar within the Carriageworks on Stokes Croft, with the exciting possibility of Pizza Is Lovely once again partnering with them, to provide the ultimate dining experience.

Fast forward to February 24…as we see the opening of Mangosteen. Taking over the former Pasta Loco on Cotham Hill, they are promising Thai tapas, Thai cocktails and vinyl in the cosy, atmospheric venue.

Prime by Pasture
Situated in the long-awaited Redcliff Quarter development, Prime by Pasture is a project from the creators of Pasture. This establishment, set in a generously sized and luxuriously designed corner site, will feature a butchery, deli, cookery school, and a burger joint.

Restore is set to manage the café at Future Leap on Gloucester Road. This expanding enterprise has established its presence at the Harbour Inlet, College Green, and Whiteladies Road, showcasing a steadfast dedication to sustainability.

Rosa’s Thai
Nestled within a former post office on Baldwin Street, Rosa’s Thai is set to mark the inaugural entry of a nationwide brand in Bristol, emerging from “a family of culinary enthusiasts committed to presenting perfected Thai dishes.”
