The Grove, Bristol, Bristol, BS1 4RB
This contemporary-style restaurant, in the unlikely place as a former police station, is decorated with glass, wood and steel, and right on the waters edge.

On the ground floor, is a café/tapas bar - open throughout the day. Upstairs is an informal, but serious, dining room with good river views.

Upstairs, the kitchen offers the likes of ' Cauliflower and Smoked Garlic Soup with Parsley Cream'; 'Chicken Liver and Foie Gras Parfait, Mulled Wine Jelly and Toast'; 'Carpaccio of Venison Fillet with Rocket and Truffle Oil' and 'Gratin of Crab, with Girolle Mushrooms 'Thermidor' and Gruyere' as starters.

Perhaps 'Roast Rib of Beef, glazed Root Vegetables and Port Jus'; 'Fillet of Sea Bass with Fennel Confit, Olives, Tomatoes and Vanilla Vinaigrette' or 'Risotto of Pumpkin, Chestnuts and Sage' among the mains.

Finish with the likes of 'Rich Chocolate and Griottine Cherry Tart with Chantilly Cream'; 'Poached Pears in Red Wine with Bay Leaf Ice Cream'; or English Farmhouse Cheese. If the weather's good, try to book a balcony table.
