St George's Bristol Reviews
Saw Lady Grantham herself (Elizabeth McGovern) with her band Sadie and the Hotheads a few years back at this gorgeous venue. Great acoustics, lovely hall, all lovingly kept in top shape. more »
St Georges is a gem on the Bristol musical scene. A converted Regency church it is now a leading concert hall. Good acoustics , reasonable parking and food and drink on site more »
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!
