25 West Street, Old Market, Bristol BS2 0DF
We’re a restaurant serving nutritious, locally sourced affordable food. We’re the new home of the Wardrobe Theatre. We’re a bakery serving freshly baked bread and cakes to eat in or take away. We’re a stage hosting local and touring bands (always free to see). We’re a bar serving local beers, ales and spirits. We’re a cafe offering the finest coffees, teas, herbals and chai’s.
At The Old Market Assembly the menu is designed with people and planet in mind. We are quietly encouraging people to eat responsibly whilst not being fundamentalist or denying deliciousness. With two thirds of the main dishes vegan and vegetarian we consider meat to be a treat and welcome all flexitarians, pescatarians and die-hard meat eaters to unite alongside despisers of nuts and the fighters for gluten freedom.
If you have a penchant for coffee we have just got our hands on what is apparently the best coffee machine in the world—the world! You’ll find our caffeine captain, Charlie, behind the bar and ready to rustle up the frothiest cappuccinos and the creamiest lattes whether you choose cow, soya or almond milk.
We are a flexitarian restaurant and will always include vegan and vegetarian dishes. We’re 100% independent. We’re whatever you want us to be – an office, a cafe, a meeting room, a den, an escape or just a place to let loose.

The Hope & Anchor is run by Peter Gibbs and his team who also run the gorgeous Volunteer Tavern near Cabot Circus shopping centre in Bristol. Similar to the Volunteer Tavern they serve the same high standard of craft beers. You’ll find many of the vegan friendly local beers from Arbor and Wiper & True, plus ones from further afar too. Catering for all tastes and budgets, there are always vegetarian, vegan and gluten free options. Olly (BVBG)

To continue the theme of central based bars opening up new locations around Bristol is Nettle & Rye just a short walk from the Clifton Downs. Having created a reputation for quality products and traditional values at their sister pub, The Famous Royal Navy Volunteer, they’ve continued their ethos to the new Clifton venue. At the Nettle & Rye they have a passion for championing UK only craft beers. The staff are equally as friendly and passionate and will be happy to guide you with your choices. The range of beers will vary from local heroes such as Moor, Arbor and Wiper & True to the likes of The Kernel and Beavertown. Olly (BVBG)

WE ARE VERY SAD TO ANNOUNCE
It is with a very heavy heart that I have to announce the imminent closure of the Adam and Eve. We have had some real issues over the last couple of months trying to keep the building and the equipment operating, which has cost us large unforeseen chunks of money. While we are hugely passionate about what we are doing in the Eve, there is only so long we can sustain spending such large amounts of cash on a building that is not ours and fixing equipment that is causing us to lose money on a week by week basis.
The support we have had in the Eve over the last 3 months has been nothing short of spectacular. We can’t thank everyone who has came down and used the place enough. The events have sold out, and the feedback we’ve had to the food has been amazing. We hope that this is not the end to what we are trying to achieve, just an interlude until we find a new premises. In the meantime, our head chef Lisa will be heading to Small Bar to take on a role there. So expect the vegan offering there to increase!
Our last day trading will be Sunday 3rd April.
Thanks again for all your support folks.

Located a short walk from Temple Meads station and Moor Beer Co. is the traditional looking Barley Mow. The interior may be small, but the beer range offered is far beyond limited. Nearly 18 taps are split between cask and keg beers with the details of each displayed on blackboards near the bar. On cask the veganfriendly offering will often be from Moor. However the keg listing is far greater with all the usual vegan friendly Bristol breweries featuring, in addition to some breweries from further afield including Liverpool’s outstanding Mad Hatter Brewing Company. The Barley Mow also provide a vegan option on their food menu varying from falafel burgers to vegan cottage pie. It’s in the perfect location for weary travellers. Olly (BVBG)

New Bristol Brewery is a small, but daring, brewery located slap bang in the middle of Bristol. Owned and operated by us, husband and wife team, Noel and Maria.
New Bristol Brewery is our attempt to bring people together over great beer. We believe that beer should be as delicious as it is refined, approachable and of course fun. We believe independent beer is not just an industry, it is a family, a community and a revolution. Together we brew, bottle, clean, sell and deliver everything – we love what we do and we love the support we get from our beloved city!
We brew all our beers in small batches, one beer at a time, as it is our goal to keep your taste buds intrigued by constantly producing different flavours. To us making the same beers all the time would be boring and are constantly experimenting with different hops, barrels and yeasts. We take risks and explore the progression of traditional styles to create increasingly forward thinking, great tasting beers.
I would say about 80% of them are vegan friendly.
Unit 9 Wadehurst Industrial Estate, St Philips Road, St Philips, Bristol BS2 0JE
In 2014, a man named Rich Poole walked into Small Bar, Bristol, and handed some beer over to Bruce Gray and Jack Granger. This began a brewing journey that started on a 200L kit through the back of that same bar, before developing into a cuckoo brewery operation known as Left Handed Giant.
We brewed for the first time on our brand new kit at our St Philips brewery last week, and it seemed only fitting that the first brew would be Dream House.
Our new brewery and tap room are finally ready! Come join us this weekend to check out what we’ve been up to and drink some beer in a great, socially distant environment. We’ve got the team from Yalla serving up vegan and vegetarian shawarma throughout our opening times.

We have evolved into one of the most innovative, creative Craft Breweries in the West. We may have expanded but are ethos remains the same….to bring fresh natural hand crafted beers to a wider market and promote local sustainable business. We remain truly independent whilst fighting the sanitising effect of big breweries, corporate investment and the institutionalising of craft beer.
Our unique experimental style delivers an innovative range of Craft Beer that pushes the boundaries of convention. We showcase the World’s finest hops and source seasonal ingredients to elevate the flavour profiles. The beer is produced naturally with no additives, filtering or finings so it’s suitable for vegans. Our ethos remains the same….to bring fresh, natural hand-crafted beers to a wider market and to promote beer as more inclusive product to match with food.

Arbor Ales are another Bristol favourite with a wide range of beer styles of consistent quality. Notable beers to look out for include Smokescreen, their robust smoked porter, in addition to their creative Freestyle Fridays range. All their kegs and bottles are free from isinglass plus any dark beers on casks are also suitable. Again, as with others, watch out for their Milk Stout. They are fairly ubiquitous throughout the city and a good location to find them is at No. 1 Harbourside which offers excellent vegan dishes and a range of their bottles to choose from. Olly (BVBG)

In 2015 we built our own brewery in St Werburghs, Bristol. Our drive since then has been towards refinement, constantly reviewing our recipes and processes.
Whilst our apparatus may have become more sophisticated, our thirst for experimentation and enjoying our craft remains the driving force behind Wiper and True. We want to take the art of brewing and seek extraordinary places.
You’ll find our beer at destinations across the country and further afield. We hope you enjoy the drinking as much as we did the brewing.
We use the finest ingredients possible and avoid any unnecessary chemicals or processing aids. We do not pasteurize, filter or clear our beers with synthesised chemicals. Where specified our beers are vegan and vegetarian friendly. Please check the label.
