Pub, bar, dining rooms, hidden oasis, The Grace is your friendly neighbourhood boozer at the heart of the Bishopston community in North Bristol.

There's also a menu of freshly made tapas dishes and small plates, homemade bar snacks. And a great Sunday lunch. Hope to see you soon. xx

The team behind The Grace is Zazu's Kitchen, an independent, Bristol-based company with a sister restaurant just up the Gloucester Rd, one in in North St, Bedminster and the Greenbank community pub in Easton.
Zazus Kitchen is about people, food and being a friendly face at the heart of the neighbourhood.
We work with great chefs, buy the best produce locally and select great local, national and international drinks.
We see our job as providing a pleasing local place to meet, socialise, eat, drink, debate, sit peacefully with a good book, send an email, catch up with friends, feed the kids or enjoy a great cup of coffee or glass of wine in the garden sun and just be...
As a free house, we are able to offer a wide range of real ales, craft beers and great ciders.
The wine list is pretty good too.
Coffee by local roasting gods at 'Extract Roasters' in St Werburghs.
