I have had dinner here before which was good but I normally come here for a drink first of all this place has I belive the biggest range of whiskies in Bristol plus a formidable range of all over spirits. If you are in the mood for a serious whisky or rum drinking session this place is for you. I... More

We were a party of 6 and we each had a Sunday roast. We all agreed that it was the best roast we had ever had. Being a vegetarian myself I am used to a very boring and dry nut roast, but their lentil and bean loaf was amazing! The roast potatoes and Yorkshire puddings are to die for! We... More

We hadn't looked up the new menu before coming but I'd said to my partner on our way there that all I needed was a good gin and tonic after the day I'd had to be happy. We were seated downstairs, given the menu and found that my wish had more than come true! 5 courses all gin inspired! Wonderful... More

What a great place to find when you are feeling hungry and in need of refreshments. Great all day breakfast and huge fish cakes, one with chips is more then enough. All beers and ciders bottled so make a choice and drink it slow in front of the huge open fire. Well worth a visit. Thank you

Had Christmas lunch here with seven friends. Five course lunch for £35 per head was pretty good value, but beer is expensive. Food was good, if a tad cold. However the booking was poorly managed, they didn't answer the phone or respond to emails. In the end I had to pop in to finalise the numbers and pay the deposit.... More

Having booked a table and advised it is only held for ten minutes we arrived early to be on the safe side. We were not allowed in as it was before 12.00 so we waited outside (good job it wasn't raining as my husband has his foot in plaster!) We asked for a different table as the one allocated was...

Being an old Bristolian, I remember the rummer as an old drinking den, spit & sawdust, sort of place. How times have changed, the restaurant now is a mix of old world Georgian with a modern urban twist ! On the strength of it, doesn't seem good bed fellows, but it works. The young front of house staff, very friendly,... More

Five of us booked a Sunday Lunchtime table at the Rummer Hotel. It was a cold day and there was a log fire in the corner of the large dining room but no tables close to it when we arrived. Whilst the service was good I didn't over-rate the food. I chose belly pork which would have been better served... More

My daughter and I enjoyed a great Sunday lunch at this restaurant, but had to make a booking deposit of £10 to secure our table. As this was unusual for me, I forgot to check that the amount had been discounted from the bill when I paid with cash! Since then I have phoned and sent emails to the Rummer,... More

Suzi, Thanks for taking the time to review us on this website. We have a system that requires a £5 deposit per head on all bookings, due to the popularity of our Sunday Roasts. It is usually deducted from your bill, and is not a booking fee. It appears that your waiter did not make the deduction, and we have... More

Popped in for nibbles at lunchtime. Roaring fire and friendly attentive waitress. Had a bit of a long wait for food, but when it arrived nice selection of cheese and charcuterie platter and scrumptious bowl of crunchy home made chips. Wonderful choice of speciality drinks, would definitely recommend it.

Thanks for the review, and sorry if the food took a little too long. As with every place, busy periods can slow things down a little sometimes. We hope to welcome you again soon. More

Description
Tucked away in All Saints Lane in Bristol is the much-loved dining institution, The Rummer Hotel. This gorgeous, classic restaurant and cocktail bar is set inside a Grade II listed building, and with its forest green leather sofas, oversized open fire and historic cellar bar and dining room - the Hotel has a relaxed and welcoming home-away-from-home vibe. Perfect for weddings, group get-togethers and intimate dinner parties, The Rummer Hotel is independently run and the menu, created by a reknowned Head Chef, is filled with contemporary British dishes. The restaurant is popular on weekdays for brunch (don't miss the kedgeree or the The Rummer all-day breakfast) as well as providing a relaxed, sophisticated atmosphere for fine-dining in the evenings. A mind blowing array of fine spirits, and cocktail bartenders who know how to mix them, make The Rummer Hotel's cocktail bar one of the great classic bars, and a destination for cocktail lovers the world over.
