St. James Barton Roundabout, Bristol BS1 3LY


It’s been a tough few weeks since Simon and Miriam’s blog posts hit the local headlines.  In spite of widespread support, very little has changed. From next week Bearritos and Bearpit Social will cease trading (24th Feb). This is in response to the unsafe environment for staff and the general public, including an upturn in personal targeted attacks. We’re committed to the space and may be back one day, but not for a while

It’s a Mexican cantina on a vintage double decker bus in the Bearpit, Bristol. A bus? It’s a 1979 Bristol VR double decker that has been craned into it’s new permanent spot inside the Bearpit. As the name suggests it was built in Bristol and was rescued from a local bus graveyard & renovated. Upstairs is for dining, downstairs is the kitchen.

Tacos, burritos, tortas, salsas, quesadillas, chilaquiles, huevos rancheros, molletes…. we want to bring you the freshest original Mexican street food the like of which we experienced on our travels. There are plenty of vegetarian and vegan options on our original and ever-changing menu and our meat will always be ethically sourced.
