One of the Best Restaurants in Clifton
The award-winning Square Kitchen is regarded by many as one of the best restaurants in Clifton as well as the wider Bristol area: serving forward thinking, delicious food and offering first class service in stylish surroundings, The Square Kitchen delivers on every level.

Head Chef Kyle Jordaan and his team develop their menus to reflect the changing seasons. They focus on using local Westcountry produce to create excellent British and European cuisine. Mark Taylor, of the Bristol Post, was not wrong when he described the latest menu as “seasonal ingredients treated with respect”.

The Square Kitchen is available for private dining upon request. Simply contact us to find out more. During the summer months, alfresco dining is also available on our beautiful Terrace. We are among the only restaurants in Clifton to offer an exclusive, peaceful outdoor space in the city centre.

We are also pleased to introduce our fantastic dining offers and discounts – another reason to make us the top of your list of Bristol restaurants to try next.
