Grab a fork and tuck into the summer menu in Chophouse Restaurant

If you’re a foodie, then you need to check out the Summer Menu in Chophouse Restaurant in Future Inn Bristol. Even though Chophouse Restaurant is the home of steaks, chops and ribs, a lot of consideration has been taken to cater for all diets including vegan and gluten-free. All of the mouth-watering dishes are made on-site using local, fresh ingredients.

The elegant restaurant is a cosy but bright space filled with comfortable booths and stylish furniture. It has gained an excellent reputation as a perfect setting for a family celebration, a catch up with friends, client meeting or an intimate dinner for two. 

Put some colour and flavour on your plate

The brand-new brunch menu has traditional breakfast items, as well as healthy options, including the signature poached eggs and avocado, served on white or brown toast (v). One of the lighter bites on the lunch menu is the vibrant the superfood salad (v) (vg) (gf) which comes with broad beans, pomegranate, seeds, kale, avocado, julienne carrot, roast butternut squash, toasted pumpkin seeds and lemon dressing.  If you’re after something heartier choose fish and chips. It is a sustainable pollock battered in Butcombe beer and served with thick-cut chips, mushy peas and tartar sauce.

After a more relaxed daytime menu, things move up a notch in the evenings. Some of the notable new dishes include Piri Piri char-grilled half a chicken with southern slaw, chunky chips and chipotle mayonnaise.  A whole roasted seabass (gf) with garlic, rosemary and olive crushed new potatoes.  Or vegan linguine (v) (vg) (gf) with cherry tomato, avocado, chilli, lime and courgette ribbons.

All of this is alongside the grills menu which includes some of the nation’s favourite steak cuts including Rib Eye, New York Strip, Rump and a Fillet. All steaks are served with a grilled mushroom, roast tomato, watercress, onion rings and thick-cut chips and your choice of sauce; blue cheese, peppercorn, BBQ, mushroom or a minted jus.

Make sure you save room for dessert
