SUSTAINABle Food in interesting spaces... EAT and drink IN proper BRISTOL FASHION.
Co-founded in 2012 by Michelin star chef Josh Eggleton and local farmer Luke Hasell, we're proud to source produce from local, ethical producers as part of our ‘Field to Fork’ ethos. Josh and his chefs work with local suppliers and foster a direct trade with producers of the best ingredients from around Bristol, Bath, Chew Valley and the surrounding area.
We like to keep our food chains short, our produce local and our menus
rather flippin' tasty.
Our cafe and bar... in a Mongolian Yurt! Get that festival feeling all year round down in Temple Meads.
our small plate restaurant that gives vegetables star billing and serves meat on the side.
Through our flagship festival, Eat Drink Bristol Fashion was borne out of a desire to celebrate the very best of the Bristol food scene. We not only showcased the glut of great restaurants and chefs in the area, but also the wealth of local producers and suppliers. We grew the business with a strong 'field to fork' ethos - working as closely as possible with producers in Bristol and Somerset. Some of our ingredients were grown in Bristol itself and travel only 1 mile to reach us!
Alongside supporting local food systems we wanted to look the other ways we operated to make our venues operate as sustainably as possible. We reviewed our resource use, our full supply chain and also how we could have a positive impact on our local community and staff team. Sustainability is a journey and we're always taking steps to improve.
Our venues Yurt Lush and root do their bit. yurt lush is proud to sport the three star Sustainable Restaurant Association rating and root was opened with the sra's backing - an organisation that supports over 6000 food service sites in achieving tangible and measurable change. At Yurt Lush we want to promote the importance of sustainability in the industry and achieving the SRA's three stars puts us in the top 81% of sustainable restaurants in the South West.
Amelia Twine, one of the original Eat Drink Bristol Fashion founding four, is a trustee of the SRA. She works alongside foodie greats such as Prue Leith and Raymond Blanc
We're proud to say:
~ we support the local economy by accepting the Bristol Pound in all our venues

With humble beginnings on a farm just south of Bristol, Eat Drink Bristol Fashion began as a one-off secret Sunday lunch event organised by the Pony AND Trap, Tipi Events and the Community Farm. 400 Sunday roasts later, Josh Eggleton and Luke Hasell soon became soething much bigger. Adopted as part of Bristol's Placemaking initiative, Eat Drink Bristol Fashion made its debut in Bristol's Queen square as a pop-up festival showcasing the best of bristol's restaurant scene. attracting over 10,000 visitors in 2012, the festival grew over the next four years and permanent venues next to follow in yurt luch and root.
