The food and drink offering of Redfield and St George has come a long way in recent years, with a number of cracking new bars and restaurants opening within the BS5 postcode.
Poco Deli, The Red Church and Pipal Leaf are just some of the new businesses that have joined Church Road, adding to the choice for local residents while attracting visitors from all over the city.
And there could be another new arrival in the not-too-distant future, from the team behind one of the road’s longest running cafes.
The owner of Bonnie’s has applied for a premises licence to open a new Mediterranean restaurant in the former taxi rank which neighbours his existing café.
If Suat Tezgel’s plans are approved, his new restaurant would have space for 45 diners inside and a further 15 in a garden area to the rear of the property.
The new Mediterranean eatery is set to open at 166A Church Road, in the unit formerly home to A 2 b Taxis, but a launch date is not yet known. Bristol Live has approached Mr Tezgel for comment.
Bonnie’s, which has been a mainstay on Church Road for over a decade, is regularly praised for its “cheap and tasty food” and “excellent” service.
Residents in St George and Redfield will no doubt be keeping their fingers crossed that the same can be said of its sister site.
A 2 B Taxis closed its Church Road office in March, but the company is still active.
