Bristol’s new River Cottage Canteen is now officially open to the public. A stunningly converted Grade 2 listed building on Whiteladies Road, near Blackboy Hill.
The chain was originally established in Axminster, by Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall. His River Cottage TV series, on Channel 4, captured the Nation’s interest in food provenance and sustainable living.
Ensuring the restaurant opened on time was in no small part down to the many companies involved in the renovation of St John’s Hall. Connected Light are happy to be counted amongst them along with long term partner Simple Simon Design.
“It’s really exciting to see the regeneration of St John’s Hall,” said Simon Jones of Bristol’s Simple Simon Design. “It’s about making the most of what’s on your doorstep, which is very River Cottage.”
Following the renovation diners can enjoy the new wood-fired oven and a view of this fantastic timber framed ceiling. Connected Light were able to provide the state of the art, efficient LED strip and track lighting along with an integrated emergency system. This aided River Cottage to continue their theme of sustainability to the building itself and not just the food.
River Cottage Canteen offers a combination of freshly prepared seasonal, local, organic and wild food, on a daily changing menu, in the beautifully lit ambience of the restaurant.
You can book at the restaurant online here or call to book your reservation 0117 973 2458.
