Here at The Spotted Cow, we have a kitchen with principles based on solid British cooking. We pride ourselves on our good reputation and hope that the enthusiasm of the team shines through in our menus.

Head Chef Iain Webb has based the ethos of the kitchen on good ingredients sourced from the best local suppliers used to create interesting dishes based on classic recipes. We are strong believers in Nose to Tail cooking and we are also big seafood fans and make the most of our regular deliveries fresh from Devon and Cornwall.

Best Pub Winner - Bristol Lifestyle Awards

Our menu changes daily and this reflects the seasonal ingredients available and also the fact that we have daily deliveries from our local suppliers. Fresh vegetables from Somerset farms, meat from Ruby & White and Origin Butchers plus bread baked right here on North Street from Mark's Bread.

No pub would be complete without a good Sunday Roast and our Sunday Roasts are legendary. We have meat, vegetarian, vegan, and also a fish option every week.

Recently we built our own roof garden. The garden now supplies the kitchen with many of its ingredients from fresh herbs to aubergines and plump tomatoes.

  • 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.

  • Service was so welcoming and friendly and we were very confident in all of the safety measures put in place. The decor is very classy and relaxing with beautiful flowers adding to the atmosphere. All of us loved the food and felt that even without the Tories subsidising it is great value for outstanding British food. Make sure you book as this pub is so popular and deservedly so- just go!

  • Some gastropubs are, truth to tell, wannabe restaurants that feel fairly uncomfortable places to pop in to for a pint. Other places are cheerfully unpromising pubs that provide amazing food.

  • 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.

  • 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.
