St George's Church is a former church in Great George Street, off Park Street, on the lower slopes of Brandon Hill in Bristol, England. Since 1999 it has been used as a music venue known as St George's Bristol. It was built in the 1820s by Sir Robert Smirke. It is a Grade II* listed building.
St George's was built for use as a church in the Clifton area of Bristol, England, between 1821 and 1823 by the architect Sir Robert Smirke, who designed it in the Greek Revival style. It was a "Waterloo church", the only one in Bristol to receive government money from the first grant under the Church Building Act of 1818.
It has been designated by English Heritage as a grade II* listed building.
In 1999, the church underwent extensive renovations to make it suitable for use as a full-time concert venue and it re-opened that October under the name by which it is now known, St George's Bristol.

  • Spotlessly clean, new decor, wonderful loos, & no loud club music being played when one is trying to enjoy a conversation. Just popped in with a friend for a cuppa & a really nice one it was. None of this tea with a hint of dried oregano leaves steeped in water drained from mount Vesuvius. Will definitely be going again.
  • Not sure about the music venue but the restaurant is a very enjoyable experience. Lovely setting modern but light and interesting. Food is incredible and affordable. Can't wait to eat there again!
