Bristol Old Vic to open restaurant

Located within Coopers’ Hall, the new restaurant will host a pop up food series starting July 20.

Pizzarova and Grano Kitchen will take over the kitchens in Coopers’ Hall as part of the ‘Bristol Old Vic Presents’ food series. 

Pizzarova is known for its handmade sourdough pizzas around the city and will join forces with Grano Kitchen, a Bristol institution known for serving homemade Italian food.

Jack Lander, Pizzarova’s Managing Director, said: “Bristol Old Vic is a true icon of the city. We’re incredibly excited to get the chance to take over the kitchens with Alberto and the team at Grano Kitchen to help welcome back guests to this amazing setting and beautiful new dining room.

“We’ll be featuring a menu of light salads and pizzas - including our brand-new chorizo and hot honey pizza - using some amazing produce from local suppliers, on our handmade sourdough. We will be creating a one-off fresh, simple and honest menu that’s fitting with the amazing heritage, not to mention the incredible setting, of Bristol Old Vic.”

The two will come together as ‘Bristol Old Vic Presents… Pizzarova x Grano Kitchen’, to create Mediterranean-inspired food for the summer. The menu will contain everything from pizzas and pastas, burrata, arancini and Caprese salad, to tiramisu, panna cotta and a host of delectable Italian ice creams.

Alberto Noriega, Grano Kitchen’s Director said: “We are so looking forward to bringing our Italian dishes to the beautiful and iconic space that is the Bristol Old Vic, and can’t wait to reveal our full menu, created in partnership with our friends at Pizzarova.”

The new restaurant has been partly put together by theatre designer Ti Green, in order to provide ‘the perfect show-stopping service’ she is after, within its beautiful surroundings.

Charlotte Geeves, Bristol Old Vic’s Executive Director, said: “After the challenges of the past year we really wanted to bring something special to Bristol. With our new “Bristol Old Vic Presents” food series we’re bringing a fresh new concept to the city and helping shine the spotlight on some of our favourite Bristol food destinations in the beautiful surroundings of our theatre. Because the spirit of collaboration is what Bristol’s all about!”
