Chef and co-founder John Watson uses well-sourced, local ingredients to create small plates where traditional British and French food is represented in a contemporary style. Our food is designed to be shared enabling you to try as few or as many dishes as you like. Inspired by Thomas Keller’s philosophy of diminishing returns, we believe that the first few mouthfuls of a dish are the most important; our small plates let you sample a wide range of flavours in one visit, without losing the excitement of that first bite.

*** Wednesday and Thursday eve: 2 plates £15 or 3 plates £20***

***Check our Set Lunch Menu available on Friday and Saturday lunchtimes***



Co-founder Julu Irvine, has hand picked a small and varied wine list from a range of producers both young and old from around the globe. The list is unusual, exciting and uniquely chosen for No Man’s Grace; as well as the standard wines we have an extensive list of dessert wines served by the glass. With a high emphasis on food and wine matching there are a variety of wines here that complement our daily menu, and always someone on hand to answer questions or make recommendations.



No Man’s Grace pays homage to the pudding by introducing a dessert bar to the city of Bristol. So if you fancy popping out for a little something sweet, come and check out our ever-changing dessert menu, served til late. Each dessert is expertly paired with a dessert wine and a matching cocktail and the bar is specifically designed to be large enough and high enough to eat at comfortably. Whether you want to pull up a stool or enjoy a sweet fix on our covered terrace, when it comes to desserts, we have got it covered.
