Root awarded a Bib Gourmand in the Michelin Guide 2018

The whole team at Eat Drink Bristol Fashion were delighted by the news that Root has been awarded a Bib Gourmand by Michelin, a year after opening.

Founded in the summer of 2017 by Michelin starred chef Josh Eggleton, Amelia Twine and the Eat Drink Bristol Fashion team; Root is an innovative vegetable-centric hub with head chef Rob Howell at the helm, former head chef at The Pony & Trap, and Meg Oakley as General Manager.

Supported by the Sustainable Restaurant Association (SRA), Root’s menu boasts stellar seasonal small plates which are primarily vegetarian, with meat and fish on the side. Located at the heart of Bristol’s Wapping Wharf, Root’s ethos reflects Josh and his team’s philosophy of eating more vegetables and less meat and promoting that fact through demonstrating what can be achieved with great British vegetables. Future plans for Root include a monthly Sunday roast menu and a chef’s kitchen menu.

Josh comments; “I couldn’t be more pleased, we’ve been open for just one year and what a turnaround from the Chicken Shed. This award has reaffirmed what a great decision it was to open Root and it’s all down to Rob and Meg, Root is their restaurant and they have both worked incredibly hard, I couldn’t be more proud of them and the team.”

Yurt Lush to go fully reusable

Yurt Lush is very happy to say it will be free of single use coffee cups in the coming weeks.

Thanks to the team over at Ecoffee cups, we have a range of reusable cups on sale in house meaning there is no excuse for single use!

So if you bring your own cup along we'll give you a lovely little discount, or better yet, buy one of our cups in the Yurt and the first one is on us.

As we all know, we need to all do our own little bit to reduce single use plastic, and while this wil only make a little dent, it's a contribution we're proud to make.
