A Bristol restaurant has re-entered the National Restaurant Awards, making it the only establishment in the city to make the prestigious Top 100.

Wilson’s on Chandos Road in Redland appears at number 55 in the awards, which were announced last night (June 12) at a ceremony held at The Hurlingham Club in London.

The Estrella Damm National Restaurant Awards is Restaurant magazine’s annual countdown of the top 100 restaurants in the UK as voted for by the UK’s leading chefs, restaurateurs and food writers.

Wilson’s, which has held a Michelin Green Star since 2022, is a 24-cover restaurant run by partners Mary Wilson and Jan Ostle.

Their weekly changing set menu is informed entirely by the harvest from their own market garden in Barrow Gurney, producing innovative, flavour-forward dishes that have delighted guests and critics since opening in 2016.

A six-course tasting menu is offered alongside a good value ‘menu du jour’ (the latter costs £25 including a glass of wine).

In 2022, the pair launched a bakery two doors from their restaurant. Wilson’s Bread Shop serves up home-baked breads, patisseries and desserts, hot drinks and surplus fruit and vegetables from the restaurant’s market garden.
