Foodie Review: Cosy Club, Bristol

Back at it again with another foodie review to sink your teeth in to and today I'm sharing another favourite. A few months ago, myself and Jack went to Bristol to celebrate my best friend's birthday. Stopping off for dinner at Cosy Club one evening and amazed by their decor, I just had to share it. Here's my review...

Once a former banking hall, church and theater, Cosy Club is located in the heart of Bristol's historic Corn Street. As a Grade II listed Neo-Palladian style building, as you walk in, it's hard not to be impressed by the marble flooring, stone work and pretty amazing domed roof. With stag heads, palms and staff dressed in vintage style, it offers a fun and nostalgic atmosphere. But enough about the decor - what about the food? The menu makes for a pretty extensive selection of tapas and comfort foods such as burgers, sandwiches and fried chicken. As well this, they also serve a selection of vegan and gluten free dishes...

Being a busy Saturday night, we did wait quite a while for all of our food to arrive but this was understandable and totally worth it. As a table of 10+ people, I didn't get a chance to photograph any other plates but I opted for the Lobster and King Prawn Broiche served with Bloody Mary mayonnaise and fries. I'll be honest that I was expecting there to be a lot less lobster and so I was really pleased with what arrived. The burger also came with a king prawn on top which I thought was a nice touch.

Given the prices on the menu, I assumed it would be more like an actual sandwich or much smaller so I was pleasantly surprised when it turned out to be such a filling plate. One thing I will say, however, is that it was an entirely cold dish which had quite obviously had been kept in a fringe before serving. Unfortunately, it probably would have been best served hot and perhaps with a toast bun. The fries however were spot on and overall, I really enjoyed my meal - even more so the prices! I always forget how much cheaper it is to eat outside of London.

Overall, I absolutely loved Cosy Club and can't wait to visit again next time I'm in Bristol. The staff were super friendly and the atmosphere of the place is excellent - totally unlike anywhere I've ever visited in London. The menu itself features an extensive range of amazing comfort foods (big and small) and for the price, I certainly can't complain. I also think that it makes for an awesome spot even if you're just looking for somewhere cool to lounge and drink cocktails. 

So that's it for another (short but sweet) foodie review - have you ever been to Cosy Club? What are some of your favourite places to eat in Bristol? As always, I love reading your comments so please do leave me lots of lovely ones down below.

Until next time fellow foodies,



  1. Good review! I'm from Leeds and they're opening a Cosy Club branch here, I'll have to keep an eye out for this burger, looks delicious!

    1. Aw that's awesome - I love that they all have different fun themes so would be cool to see what that one is like. Hope you love it :) xx

  2. Very cool, Sophie! I had to google Bloody Mary Mayonaise :)

    Oh, I have a question. I was discussing burgers with someone and I was saying that the last time I went to McDonald's, I felt the meat was overprocessed. Is that the case for the McDonald's in the UK? I actually have recently become a fan of the Whopper with cheese from Burger King in the US because the tomatoes and lettuce seem fresh. I looked on yelp however in the UK where I've seen a bunch of negative reviews about the cleanliness of the seating. So I guess the Burger Kings are not as well maintained in the UK as in the US?

    But this Cosy Club atmosphere looks absolutely top notch!

    1. I think it would depend on which one you go to? But I wouldn't be surprised given they're fast food restaurants. I haven't been to Burger King in years - I much prefer McDonalds personally

  3. Fab photos as bloody always! The interior of Cosy Club looks so awesome, whilst lobster isn't my thing it sounds like there'd be plenty for me to choose from, might have to check this out on my next visit x

    1. Yay! Thanks hun. Yeah there's loads - they have vegan options too! They do amazing tapas too which I'd recommend :) xx

  4. Wow Sophie this place looks very 'posh'. I'm surprised that the prices are so reasonable given the location. I particularly like the stags heads and plants. I don't think I've ever tried lobster but I would love to. Another excellent food review! Would you recommend visiting Bristol if I were to be in the UK?

    1. Ha yeah I think because it's in a cool location it looks quite fancy but it was really chill and good prices :) This definitely didn't taste like proper lobster but would so recommend trying it if you get a chance. I LOVE lobster. I think Bristol is a great place to visit for tourists although its very far from London so depends what sort of things you're hoping to see. Definitely worth a trip though. Hope you're well Ashley :) xx

  5. I am so much excited after reading your food. Your delicious food is very much innovative and much helpful for any learner as well as for person. Top Vouchers Code
