The Cowshed

The Cowshed was opened in 2009 by Adam Denton, who sought to create a restaurant in his hometown of Bristol that offered to combine an informal setting with an emphasis on quality, local produce. The commitment and dedication to sourcing the best possible produce, while supporting West Country farmers and producers, is vital to the Cowshed as without them the restaurant wouldn't be what it is today. Our events team will bring The Cowshed to you in the form of a delicious and fresh BBQ, featuring some of our favourites – R&W beef burgers, handmade Cumberland sausages and juicy Ruby Red steak sandwiches.

NYC Eats

Native New Yorker Josh Carson, serves New York inspired street food that reminds him of home. After moving to the UK with his British wife, Josh couldn’t find a Philly Cheesesteak or the right kind of street dog. A move to
Bristol with its vibrant food scene prompted the idea of simply doing it himself, and so NYC-eats was born. Stop by for the ‘Coney Island’ hotdogs and Philly Cheesesteaks, or to try a chilli-cheese dog or a ‘Brooklyn’ – with sauerkraut and Reuben sauce. Using local producers and suppliers is something we’ve prioritised and it’s great to feel part of a growing food community.
