The Spotted Cow is situated on North Street in the heart of Southville and Bedminster.

The pub has a rich heritage dating back to Bedminster’s agricultural past and has stood for over 200 years. We aim to provide a quality community pub serving up great food, drinks, and music.

The pub also benefits from a large walled garden to the rear which is a great suntrap and a perfect oasis to escape from the city.

Thanks to the lovely wood burner in winter and our spacious garden we like to say we have a country pub feel in the city.

Back in 2008 when we took over the pub we enlisted some help from our friends ‘Milo Design’ to refit the pub and they have created a warm, comfortable space with their unique touch, mixing both modern and traditional together perfectly.

  • The menu makes for interesting reading, not least because the Cow have extended their 'local, sustainable, ethical' food-sourcing policy to include 'grown on the premises', with a roof garden providing many of the vegetables and herbs used in the kitchen.

  • Great for social drinks. Sat indoors on a Saturday evening which was set up well for social distancing. There was a good drinks selection, and food quality. Efficient and friendly staff and service.

  • Well it's great to get back in the Spotted Cow with their gorgeous Sunday lunch. The pork belly was stunning and the gravy was to die for! Great food, super friendly service and felt very comfortable in these strange times.

  • The Spotted Cow has been one such haunt of mine, and it has been for most of the seven years I’ve lived in Bristol. It’s remained a constant on ever-evolving North Street, seeing neighbouring businesses come and go, and the food and drink offering flourish. It’s actually been there, in the same guise and ownership, for over a decade. Come the summer, the large garden will come into its own, too – locals flock here at the first sign of sun to work on those vitamin D levels. A proper crowd-pleaser.

  • This spacious downtown gastropub oozes unpretentious sophistication, from the candle-lit minimalism of the decor to the chilled Sunday jazz DJ sets. Food is also a big deal here. You'll find classic pub grub brilliantly reinvented with locally sourced and organic ingredients whenever possible.

    The Guardian
  • The Spotted Cow was one of the first pubs in Bristol to place an emphasis on locally sourced and organic produce... North Street has come a long way over the years and The Spotted Cow has had a hand to play in its resurgence.
