I Love Bristol | Flour And Ash Restaurant Review

Flour and Ash pizza restaurant review Bristol

Flour and Ash pizza restaurant review Bristol
Flour And Ash, a pizza and ice cream restaurant ideally situated where Bristol's famous Gloucester Road meets Cheltenham Road, is a firm family favourite of ours so I just knew that this had to be the next stop on my culinary tour of Bristol. In fact, we like it so much that since I took the first batch of photos for this blog restaurant review, I have been again! I tried a different (and much better pizza) the second time this month so I am going to talk about both experiences in this one post.

Just by looking at the menu, you can tell that this is no ordinary pizza restaurant. Flour And Ash certainly experiment with their pizza toppings and as their menu changes regularly, there will never be a lack new flavour combinations. On my first trip to Flour And Ash this month, I went for the Marinated Aubergine, with mozzarella, basil and ricotta, which admittedly is not the most adventurous choice but I just love ricotta on pizza.

The pizza as a whole, was delicious. Flour And Ash pizzas unusually have a sourdough base, which makes the dough super spongey and light and the whole pizza experience just quite different. Due to my personal taste of not liking vinegar, I was a bit disappointed with my choice of Marinated Aubergine. I know, I should have asked the waiter what the aubergine was marinated in so that is my fault and not a reflection on the pizza itself. If you love vinegar and aubergine then this pizza is for you! Luckily the ricotta was lovely and creamy so that made up for it.

Round two at Flour And Ash was the highly rated taste experience that I had been yearning for, made all the more lovely by the company of two of my favourite girls. This time I got what my sister had ordered on our previous visit - Severn Project Kale, with buffalo mozzarella, garlic semi-dried tomatoes, ewe's curd and extra tomato sauce (because a pizza really is not right without it). I was extremely impressed with this pizza. The chewy and bitter kale was the perfect contrast to the creamy ewe's curd and sweet tomatoes and I would definitely order this again!

Finally, you simply cannot go to Flour And Ash without sampling one of their divine homemade ice creams. Once again, the selection does change and the flavours vary from classics such as chocolate or rum and raisin to bizarre combinations such as lavender and honey or basil! After my disappointing Marinated Aubergine pizza, I played it safe and ordered chocolate. Flour And Ash chocolate ice cream is certainly no ordinary chocolate ice cream - it is indescribably on par with the best chocolate ice cream I have ever had (the other one being at The Lido Restaurant in Bristol). As a big golden syrup fan, I just had to try their ice cream in this flavour that my mum had ordered. While feeling refreshing, you could also taste the thickness and smoothness of the golden syrup come through the ice cream - it was just excellent!

I would certainly recommend Flour And Ash if you fancy a good old fashioned pizza and ice cream binge. There is something for everyone - a simple margarita pizza and chocolate ice for you play-it-safes (Lewis I'm looking at you) or some unusual taste combinations for those of you that like to be taken out of your comfort zones. 

If you would like to got to Flour And Ash, call ahead because it gets booked up quickly, even during the week!

Yes, it's all delicious fare. They have even opened another bigger Flour & Ash restaurant in Westbury on Trym. There they serve the same award winning combination of pizza & ice cream, but are expanding the range of the menu.

Well if you are ever in Bristol - you will know where to go! :)

Yes I have heard about the new restaurant! The one on Cheltenham Road is more convenient for me but I may need to venture over to Westbury on Trym if there's a bigger menu! :)
