Named after the year the very first Vegetarian Society was formed, 1847 Bristol is a fabulous upmarket vegetarian restaurant. Owner Damien Davenport, a vegetarian himself, wanted to create a vegetarian restaurant that really stood out, where a modern take on classic dishes was showcased whilst championing local suppliers and local produce at the same time. He certainly achieved his vision and is now proud to boast four outlets across the UK with more certain to open soon. 1847 Bristol is centrally located within the city, sitting just minutes from the main shops, theatres and hotels as well as a short walk from Bristol’s beautiful waterfront.
There is plenty to get excited about with 1847’s cleverly created menu. Anyone who believes that vegetarian food lacks flavour and taste is proved sorely wrong with a set of mouth-watering dishes that are so good even the most avid carnivore would find it hard to refuse them. Starters of goats cheese balls with black olives, apples, celery and Melba toast or spring puff pastry pie with smoked cheddar, marrow, beetroot, spring greens and cress and marjoram pesto really hit the spot whilst ingenious main courses include the brilliant “fish and chips” featuring cider battered halloumi with hand cut chips, lemon curd and mint and basil crushed peas and a delicious celeriac and potato bake gratin with Berkswell cheese, spring onions, roasted radish and carrots.
A simple décor of on trend white washed exposed brick walls and black tables and chairs leaves the way for the food to take centre stage, just as it should. Davenport has turned vegetarian dining on its head with the superb 1847 restaurant concept and the city of Bristol is proud to play host to one.
