Review on The Townhouse Bar & Restaurant

Nick Armitage made a bold choice when he decided to move into the defunct Dog & Duck pub next to the old Whiteladies Road cinema. He set about re-inventing the place as a contemporary café/bar/restaurant, and looked to pull in a discerning crowd of diners and drinkers. It soon became one of Bristol's best restaurants. After five years Nick, now working with his partner Vanessa, moved the restaurant across the street to 85 Whiteladies Road (formerly the site of Quartier Vert) to create the TownHouse bar & Restaurant (previously known as The Picture House East). With a bigger kitchen, extra seating, and a large, sunny terrace, it is the place to eat on Whiteladies Road.

    Very poor service

    Very very slow to give us our first drinks. (40 minutes) We waited for well over an hour for food and that was mediocre.
    Staff were rude and did not seem bothered about how we felt. To add insult they offered us one soft drink off the bill.
