Restaurant Review – Beerd at Colston Hall, Bristol

Last week, Ian and I went to watch Romesh Ranganathan’s stand-up show at Colston Hall in Bristol. We both went straight from work and due to Friday night traffic, didn’t leave ourselves long to grab a bite to eat before the gig. Luckily, we had a recommendation to try Beerd which is located in the venue and specialises in two of our favourite things – craft beer and pizza.

It is quite a small space but we managed to find a table to peruse the beer menu. There is an impressive selection here, all available in half, two-third and pint measures. I had a can of Session IPA from Fourpure Brewing Company which was a lovely, hoppy beer.


Our food arrived in about 20 minutes and I was more than ready to tuck in. I ordered from the specials menu and had a calzone filled with ham, mushroom and ricotta. It came with a salad which was both underdressed and full of onion so I left most of it. The calzone however was delicious…like a beautiful, Italian pasty!


We ordered a side of hot wings to share which were very tasty although should have come with a side of blue cheese sauce like they do in America (sidenote: I plan on ordering a portion of hot wings every day we are in the States later this month!)


Ian ordered a really good pizza which came with beef brisket, Bath Gem ale chipotle sauce and pickles. Now, I am a big pickle fan but have never had it on pizza and I have to say it worked really well with the BBQ-style toppings.


I would definitely go back to Beerd next time we go to a comedy or music show in Bristol. The menu is simple but really good, especially if you are a beer or pizza fan.

I have landed my dream job as a primary school teacher and I can’t think of anything else I would rather be doing. I am a self-confessed foodie and I love to cook, bake, and eat out as much as possible. Here are some things I love: My friends and family, travelling, fresh flowers, good books, having breakfast on my balcony, horror films, Christmas, tea, Las Vegas, lie-ins, red wine, Liverpool FC, music, sausage dogs, Spain, rare steak, fashion, cheese, American TV series and camping. And here are my pet hates: People dressed as animals, whistling, being rushed, being made to wait, girls who act stupid to impress a man, spiders, sunburn and rocket (it comes with EVERYTHING!)
