At The Clifton Sausage, the aim is to show that when British food is done well, it can compete with the best food in the world for taste and satisfaction. The restaurant is situated in the heart of beautiful Clifton Village and is just a stone’s throw away from the world-famous Clifton Suspension Bridge. This family-owned independent business offers comfort and a touch of class, exemplified by the decor as well as the food and service. The Clifton Sausage is a child-friendly family restaurant with baby-changing facilities, highchairs and a children’s menu. The lovely team even allows well-behaved dogs in the restaurant, so you can bring your four-legged friends along with you. Of the many varieties of sausages on offer, at least six (including the homemade vegetarian option) usually appear on the menu at one time. They are all served with either mash or champ (mash with chopped spring onion) and onion gravy. Flavours include classic Gloucester Old Spot pork, lamb with mint and apricot, beef and Butcombe ale, and at Christmas time, reindeer and cranberry sausages make a special appearance. Sausage tasting plates and toad in the hole also feature on the enticing menu. As well as delicious sausages, the restaurant also offers a range of classic British dishes that are sure to tempt even the most discerning of visitors, such as roast rump of Wiltshire lamb, fresh Cornish seafood and a fantastic sticky toffee pudding for dessert. The Sunday roast menu at The Clifton Sausage is just plain scrumptious, with mouth-watering Wiltshire roast beef and Old Spot pork belly served with roast potatoes, vegetables, Yorkshire puddings and lashings of gravy. The full menu of tasty sausages is also available on Sundays. After a stroll around the village, perusing the boutique shops and taking in stunning views, why not pop into The Clifton Sausage for a drink and a delicious meal?
