The Canteen

The Canteen, Hamilton House, 80 Stokes Croft, Bristol BS1 3QY


Our aim is to keep all our food seasonal and as local as possible and The Canteen has had vegan dishes on the menu since day on. Our sourcing policy means that the produce available to us changes throughout the year. In turn, this means that all our plant-based dishes are exciting, fresh and full of timely goodness!

The Canteen opened its doors in August 2009 to serve and provide for the people of Hamilton House, Stokes Croft, Bristol and beyond. At first a café, a bar, a restaurant and a music venue, the Canteen has become a melting pot, a meeting place and a place for people.

We take deliciousness seriously and aspire to the Slow Food philosophy of “good, clean and fair” – food that’s delicious, with no nasties and a fair price to producers.

Our constantly evolving menu includes a range of vegetarian, gluten free and vegan options. We’ve been awarded the Sustainable Restaurant Association’s highest rating of three stars in recognition of our sourcing policy, our responsible waste disposal, our commitment to our staff and being an active member of the community.
