Set within the elegant Hilton Bristol hotel, Brunel’s Hat offers classic and contemporary British cuisine. As well as paying homage to Britain’s most famous engineer, the decor features a replica of London Olympic flame, and cosy green velvet booths.

The assorted Brunel’s Hat menu showcases well-executed, locally sourced ingredients, evident in dishes such as Wiltshire rosary goat’s cheese, beetroot and rocket salad and honey and pepper-marinated duck breast. Chef’s choice of round steak of Scottish salmon fillet and chicken Wellington with pâté and mushroom stuffing are other popular dishes.

The grill selection presents an 8oz gammon steak, Bolton Abbey lamb rump, sirloin or rib-eye steaks served with a choice of sauces. Indulgent desserts at Brunel's Hat in Bristol include strawberry Eton mess and chef’s choice of steamed chocolate pudding.

Close to the Bristol City Centre, Brunel's Hat @ Hilton Bristol is within a 5-minute drive from Bristol Filton Airport and The Bristol Golf Course.

    Didn't like the fact that there was a wedding party going on at the same time. I should have been told as my 84 year old mother does not enjoy the noise of large crowds. I felt the waitress did her best to cope but poor mum first had no milk then discovered she had the wrong tea. What was suppose to be a lovely reunion with my sister from America with her, my mum and myself, turned out to be a bit of a fiasco really. Not as enjoyable as it could have been. The food provided was all very enjoyable.

    I booked afternoon tea for my father's 90th birthday. All the staff were very polite and helpful nothing to much trouble. Hotel very clean. The actual tea was very good overall but felt that it would have been better if you were given a choice of sandwich fillings (my father is very much a plain eater). Cakes were yummy!!!

    It was amazing. Was treated like a celebritie. Food was lovely. Champagne was bubbly and I had green tea with fresh lemon. My partner has a cappuccino. It was so relaxing I will definitely be coming back.

    Lovely restaurant which was surprisingly empty considering the time of year. Possibly road closure in the area has affected business?
    Menu prices quite reasonable considering the standard of food and presentation.
    Very good food (the lamb rump and braised beef were very tender, tasty and nicely presented) and excellent service. Unfortunately, the lamb meal served was not hot.
    This was replaced, not charged for and a free glass of wine provided.
    The standard of food and service means I will definitely go there again.

    Lovely, I did leave a review the other week, ref the sandwiches being slightly "clumpy", I don't know if in response to my comment, but they much better this time

    ALL Staff are ALWAYS courteous, friendly and helpful nothing is too much trouble. We had an afternoon tea style lunch with sandwiches and cakes and they changed the menu to suit our dietary needs with no fuss. Fresh & good quality for the price. The only negative is the awful roadworks causing heavy traffic (due to lane closure) and diversions so took a little longer than necessary to get there. On a good note the car park had no barrier or parking fee

    1st of all the tea was served in the hotel lobby, not the Brunel's Hat restaurant, this was not an issue. The service was fine, but I felt a few little touches missing, the sandwiches lacked any "zing" they were served on ordinary white or brown bread noting special, could well of been a supermarkets own brand bread, and were rather "clumpy" still had the crusts on, I could of made better at home even in a rush. The small tart & scone were very nice, there was plenty jam & cream (always a let down if not enough cream) I would take away one of the rounds of sandwiches and add another small cake, Cannot comment on the restaurant as not served there, I would however still recommend the afternoon tea to a friend, but not at full price
