Bristol’s famous Lido is one of the oldest-surviving outdoor pools in the UK. Open all year round, the Lido, which dates back to 1849, re-opened its doors in 2008 after lying in disrepair for two decades. The Lido is a contemporary venue with an award-winning restaurant, which has capacity for 100 people for dinner or 150 for a drinks reception. The venue also has a private tea room overlooking the pool (it can accommodate up to 24 people), and a pool-side terrace for up to 50 standing.
Head chef, Freddy Bird, has developed the menu as a unique take on Moorish and Mediterranean cooking with a strong focus on provenance. Primarily cooked over fire and in wood ovens, it’s truly characterful cookery… relaxed, unpretentious and designed for sharing – put simply, it’s food cooked to make people happy.
