There were 6 of us - all of whom had dined there before but not together. We all felt that our meal was one of the best we had had at the Willy Wicket. This was a small reunion and we have decided to repeat the experience at the same venue in 4 months

A former dairy farm, The Willy Wicket serves quintessentially British food from an extensive menu, and enjoys a grassy beer garden framed by the pub’s red-brick exterior. Based in Bristol, the dining room features roaring open fires, black oak beam ceilings and squashy leather sofas.

Hearty Sunday roasts and trusty British dishes head The Willy Wicket menu, and a range just for kids offers mini versions of pub favourites. Signature Vintage pies designed by celebrity chef James Martin offer fillings like beef & merlot with buttered peas, while the ‘Vintage classics’ menu includes lemon & garlic-roasted chicken with seasoned chips.

Paying homage to the Great British pub, the Vintage Inn bar stock includes cask-conditioned beers, real ales and a meticulously compiled wine list. Thirst-quenching offerings include seasonal non-alcoholic cocktails and freshly-pressed juices, and rich coffee is brewed freshly throughout the day.

Surrounded by rolling countryside, The Willy Wicket in Downend boasts many rambling walks and idyllic beauty spots, while The Kendleshire Golf Club is just a 4-minute drive away.

    We booked Sunday lunch for my Wife's Birthday,We prefer to take are meals in the day this time of years, getting older not so good turning out in the cold at night.
    It was cold but a pleasant day,we thoroughly enjoyed are meal.
    We have also taken advantage of the vouchers when available.
    We have tried the Fox's Den it is not a patch on your Restaurant.Which is closer to home.

    My first visit here to meet friends. Over all it was a very pleasant experience. Friendly staff and the service was quick. Lets hope that you open a restaurant closer to home as I had a 50 minute drive to get to the Willy Wicket but it was worth the journey.
