I recently visited and enjoyed the most succulent roast beef. The food and wine was fantastic, albeit a little pricey, but I would definitely go back again.

This venue was chosen by our son for Sunday lunch as he had been once before for a friend's birthday meal. He fancied a roast dinner. Generally the premises have a rustic feel. We agree with other comments made regarding the lighting or rather lack...More

Sad times. The Star & Dove used to be my go-to pub in the area for friendly, chilled out drinks (and great bar snacks) at any time of year. Sure, the drinks weren't cheap, but they were always good, especially the wine – an extensive,...More

Been coming here for 6 years and have to say it's on the decline quite rapidly. Management change takes away the last possible reason to overcharge so criminally for the drinks. We miss the old managers and their charm and knowledge of food and drink....More

On the corner of St Lukes Road sits The Star and Dove – a smart, welcoming pub and a favourite among Bristol’s young and trendy locals. Downstairs, there are two separate bar areas where you can lounge around on comfy sofas; while upstairs in the restaurant, the parquet floors, royal blue walls and huge windows create a bright and airy space. There are separate menus too, with the bar menu offering classic pub grub and the restaurant menu serving up top-class European cuisine. As if that wasn’t enough, the kitchen produces a seasonal tasting menu on the first Thursday of every month. There’s a great outside space, a concise wine list and a good selection of draught lagers – what more could you ask for?
