The restaurant at Quakers Friars in Cabot Circus opened in 2020

One of Bristol’s largest restaurants has closed suddenly. Klosterhaus in Quakers Friars was part of the London-based D&D hospitality group and one of the most popular restaurants in the Cabot Circus area.

The restaurant, housed in a former 18th Century meeting house linked to a medieval Dominican friary, opened in October 2020. The site was previously occupied by celebrity chef Raymond Blanc’s French brasserie.

A message posted on the Klosterhaus website reads: ‘Please note that Klosterhaus has now closed, however we would be delighted to welcome you at one of our sister restaurants. Thank you for your support and we look forward to seeing you soon’.

The restaurant is thought to have closed after its New Year’s Eve celebrations although the website had already been advertising its new menu dishes for January and its winter cocktail menu.

In a statement, D&D London said the closure was down to the ‘challenging’ trading conditions due to rising utility, food and beverage costs as well as the ‘unstable labour market’.
