COMMUNITY PUB / GOOD FOOD / SPECIALIST ALES

Hope to see you soon. xx

Check out our programme of daily events. Its little wonder the Western Daily Press recently named us

about us
Who we are, what we are and why we're here

Zazu’s Kitchen is a small Bristol-based company with currently two restaurants in Bristol. The Greenbank is our first pub venture.

Our co-founder Toby likes to tell people, about the origins of our name,: “ A Zazu is an exotic bird which is the first up and last to bed… a bit like us.”.

It’s not actually true. He made it up.

It is an African bird. - a fairly plain one, sadly - and we have no idea about its habits. But Toby’s little jest does sum us up..

Zazus Kitchen is about people, food and neighbourhood. And an all-day service..

We chose to open in Easton because the Greenbank perfectly fits our values and aspirations: an iconic building in the heart of a strong, supportive local community.

We see our job as providing a great local place to meet, socialise, eat, drink, debate, sit peacefully with a good book, send an email, catch up with friends or enjoy a great cup of coffee or glass of wine in the courtyard sun and just be…. All day long.

We began life as a small outpost in a strong, neighbourhood community, Stokes Croft, on the corner of Jamaica St, Bristol. We’ve since moved on but our roots remain the same.

Being a part of a local community is a key to who we are.

drink
FROM REAL ALES TO FINE WINE AND EVERYTHING IN BETWEEN

As a free house, we are able to offer a wide range of real ales, craft beers and great ciders. With such a wide variety on offer, the only characteristic they all share is quality.

The wine list is pretty good too, encompassing rich winter reds to celebratory champers - a tipple for every occasion.

And from toasting to roasting, we're really making a stir with our coffee, supplied by local caffeine artisans 'Extract Roasters' in St Werburghs.

food
SIMPLE, FRESH AND GOOD VALUE

From cakes and a coffee to quality bar snacks and our range of gastro pizzas and bowls.

All made by our staff fresh, on site.

And the Sunday lunches are a must ! No, really...

Much of what we buy is sourced locally. All of our pizzas are stone baked using flour from Shipton Mill, in the Cotswolds. We are proud of our other wonderful suppliers too, who include, in no particular order: Chefs Deli, French Garden, Ruby and White, Powells of Olveston, Wings of St Mawes, The Bristol Sweet Mart and Chaudhrys Mega Mart

Beyond Rivers
Friday 27 May at 8pm
