The Star and Dove
Comprised of two halves; a dog friendly, classic British pub on one side, and a relaxed, comfortable restaurant on the other. We proudly offer an authentic modern British menu, a hand-selected wine list, Cask Ales and three open hearths.
Our menu is perfect for sharing with family and friends, and we take great pride in the fact our produce is meticulously sourced from Bristol and the surrounding countryside.
If you have any questions please don't hesitate in giving us a call, we're all very happy to help.

As always in the Star and Dove - incredible food and impeccable service. So glad it’s reopened for food again!
Outstanding food. Will definitely be going back
However the restaurant was very cold
The food is outstanding and the service is always very good. This wasn’t our first visit, we love this place. Hats off to the chief. It’s a must try for food in Bristol.
Food was incredible and the service was great. Can't wait to go back !
The Star & Dove was absolutely outstanding. The standard of food was amazing. Service was friendly and efficient. The excellent online reviews are well deserved, I only wished we lived in Bristol to visit frequently. Good luck in the strange times. Sharon & Stewart Roberts
Delicious food, great team and atmosphere. A must for Sunday lunch in Bristol.
The best roast I've had in a long time - lovely pub, great staff and good drink selection. I'll definitely be back soon. Thank you :)
In our opinion it qualified as a bonafide Gastro pub! A title that is often used these days to mean a pub that does anything other than ready meals. But this is a dinning experience in a pub. Really enjoyable.
Lovely food as always, good service, highly recommend a visit
Although the food is high in price (£8-12 per starter; £20-26 per main), the food is of high quality, delicious and beautifully presented. Do note that you need to order at least one side to share between two.
As always, absolutely delicious. It’s so good I Overindulged so had to nap when I got home.
Thank you Sara, Looking forward to seeing you both again soon!
One of the most amazing meals I’ve had this year. The fish soup was great and the steak - outstanding, melting in your mouth. Friendly stuff makes the venue even more perfect :)
Firstly the food was excellent. Beautiful fresh sourdough bread and our Hanger Steak and Duck were beautifully cooked.
The pricing was in line with the quality of the cooking so absolutely no complaints there.
The service was very pleasant but just way to slow for us. While I appreciate not being rushed, two hours for a main course and one dessert with up to half an hour after ordering each time for any food to arrive was disappointing. I have no idea how you'd get three courses ordered served and finished before closing if you booked a table after 7:30
Hi Stuart, Thank you for taking your time to write your review. It's highly appreciated. I'd like to apologise personally for the wait times you experienced on the Saturday evening you visited us. It was due to my own personal error we had overbooked and it really isn't a true reflection of our normal evening service. We're chuffed you enjoyed the food so much and we hope to see you again soon! Many thanks, Tom
We visited for our Wedding anniversary... was blown away by the quality of the food. Everything was delicious and beautiful! meticulous and stunning presentation!
It is a little on the pricey side but totally worth it. And excellent spot for a special occasion.
Best roast I have had in Bristol. Staff were pleasant and food was of the highest quality
Superb food, great service. We’ll be going back. Highly recommended.
Fantastic Sunday lunch, the Yorkshire puddings were massive, everything on my plate was delicious 😊 excellent friendly service. Loved it ❤️
Thank you, Sharron! Really kind words and we're thrilled you loved it.
I have dined in almost every restaurant in Bristol opened over the past decade - this has to be the most pleasant surprise of them all. Highly recommended.
Wow, such high praise! Thank you so much Rich. Team S&D
Well sourced fresh food with light and creative flavour combinations.
Attentive polite service.
Thank You Katy! It's so kind of you to leave such lovely review, we're thrilled you enjoyed your visit.
Cosy and nice atmosphere, delicious food and great menu including veggie and vegan options. Would recommend.

Thank you Julie!
Amazing food and a lovely atmosphere and staff. We will definitely be going back, fantastic quality for a very reasonable price.
Thanks Chloe! So glad you enjoyed your visit!
Excellent restaurant all round. Delicious and high-quality food, wonderful service and lovely ambience with the restaurant separate from the bar. I'll definitely return!
Thank you so much for taking the time to send us a review! We really appreciate your kind words and support, The Star and Dove.
The best roast I have ever had in Bristol. The team were so welcoming, the whole place felt extremely clean which is important right now of course! But the food was outstanding, I almost don't want to recommend it because I would still like to be able to get a table.
Best roast in Bristol I've had so far, and I have tried many. Friendly staff, cozy atmosphere.
Went for a Sunday dinner, wow...it was amazing!
We went opening weekend and it was fantastic, so we decided to go back again and it was even better!
Our dogs were extremely welcome as well.
The staff were very friendly and the service was great.
Would definitely recommend:-)
Outstanding food and service. Great to see this pub given a new lease of life. Now one of the very best places to eat in the area.
