Wilks Restaurant - Redland, Bristol



The cooking at wilks restaurant is light and modern with an emphasis on clean flavours and seasonal ingredients. We focus on produce of extraordinary freshness and quality with vegetables, fruits, herbs, cereals and aromatic spices playing key roles.

Inspired by our experiences and travels, our cooking style unites creative interpretations of classical flavour combinations with traditional and modern cooking techniques.

In keeping with many people’s desire for a healthier lifestyle, butter and cream are used sparingly ensuring that dishes are light and full of natural flavour.

Menus feature products that are traceable and homemade and wherever possible we use wild foods from the UK, in particular the West Country.

It is with regret that we must now take credit card details of customers when they book with us. We have resisted this move for several years.

Unfortunately a small independent business like ours cannot afford to support those who do not show up for their reservations.

A sad case of the few spoiling it for the many. We are sorry for any inconvenience that this may cause you.
