Popular Bishopston pub, The Grace, has a new extension which has enhanced both the look and customer experience of the inside and outside space.

Owner James Savage said: “We decided to enlarge the pub because we have the luxury of the big garden. We’ve built a lovely little extension and that’s given us 24 more covers inside - about a third more tables for dining.

“It allows for a bigger separation between diners and drinkers, particularly on busy Friday and Saturday nights. We’ve implemented a new wine list, which has been very well received and added a couple of obvious standards onto the bar, such as Guinness and Amstel.”

The pub’s high quality food and drink is well recognised in Bristol - The Grace is a finalist in the Best Pub section of the 2017 Bristol Life awards. As well as serving a popular Sunday lunch, the pub has a small plates menu, designed so that it can be changed frequently, allowing the chefs to utilise the very best of local produce when it's at it's best. 

The new extension can be booked for drinking or dining. Overall the improvements have cost in the region of £30,000 and make The Grace look extra special.

The garden has been made prettier by creating outside booths, all lit up by fairy lights, and enhanced by planters. The smoking shelter has been moved to one side of the pub and is not now connected to the entrance of the pub at all. 

James Savage added: “We pride ourselves on service, being the locals' local.  The garden is a peaceful, blissful oasis, fifteen yards and a million miles away from the ever busy Gloucester Road. There are many independent business on the Gloucester Road and we're proud to be one of them. We are Bristol owned and Bristol bred. We live, sleep and serve here.”
