Hope to see you soon. xx

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.

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... Please give us a ring to check on roast availability, pre-booking a table is strongly recommended.

Much of what we buy is sourced locally. Our meat is ethically sourced and has lived a happy life, and we also cater for vegetarians and vegans on all areas of our menus. 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

Eko Collective: Femme De Musique #8
Wednesday 28 September at 8pm
We are very excited to be returning to Greenbank for a soul-tastic evening with SAMANTHA LINDO and WITH NELL & I hosted by THE EKO TRIO.

SAMANTHA LINDO - Bringing together a refreshing fusion of soul, folk, tribal percussion and harmony, with a voice with a depth and intensity that cuts straight to the core, Samantha Lindo's music is not easily box-able.

Her band are made up of 'The Homegrown Collective', a community of Bristol based musicians she founded, who collaborate to perform, write and record each other's music and she also leads 'Girls, Girls, Girls', a London based female-led music night working with women artists around the country to support Orchid, a charity that campaigns to put a global end to female genital cutting.

Website - Soundcloud

WITH NELL & I -Bristol duo Nell & Harry, perform homemade songs from the heart. Expect enchanting harmonies, catchy melodies and surprising harmonic twists.

Fronted by Soulstress Nell Hubbard and supported by the funky guitar playing of Harry Avis, With Nell & I take inspiration from Chic and Prince presenting a brilliant coming together of folk-rootsiness and soul sensibility in their music.

Facebook - Soundcloud

The Eko Trio will be interspersing the night with their self-penned quirky numbers and rearranged classics, influenced by traditional and vintage acapella singing. You may have seen them at the Greenbank on their first UK tour last year, but once is never enough, these girls are full of surprises. Check out their music video here.

£5 on the door. Arrive early to baggsy your seat.

This night is put on in association with The World is Listening, a network and forum which represents women in the music industry.

Love from Eko Collective x

Sling Library
Thursday 29 September at 12pm - 2pm
Bristol Sling Library exists to help parents to find the best sling or carrier for them and their child. Good quality comfortable slings can be expensive and we would like to help families to have an easy way to try before they buy. There is no sling or carrier that is the best for everyone and what suits you will depend on your size and shape and situation. We aim to have a wide range of carriers that you can come and try and then hire for a short period to see if they suit your needs.
