Grillstock – Clifton
Pubs and Bars with Restaurants
Grillstock’s first permanent smokehouse, located on the Clifton Triangle, is now a well-known low-and-slow barbeque staple in Bristol. The venue has posters and images from its annual barbecue and music festival adorning the walls, and a soundtrack of Delta blues playing loudly to set the scene for their truly authentic Southern barbecue.
Grillstock is all about authentic, unhurried wood-smoked meat – that’s why all of the barbecue meat is freshly smoked on-site for up to 18 hours resulting in perfectly tender, melt-in-your-mouth meat. You can look forward to all the barbecue classics, including ribs, brisket, chicken and pulled pork, as well as burgers, rolls and an impressive range of fixings to go with the barbecue. If you’re really hungry why not try the lockjaw burger, which features two 5oz burgers, pulled pork, beef brisket with melted cheese and pickles? Wash it all down with a Grillstock Pale Ale, a brew concocted as the ideal barbecue accompaniment.
For those looking for a challenge, take on the Grand Champion plate, piled high with pulled pork, sliced brisket, half a chicken, full rack of baby back ribs and Texas smoked sausage plus mac ‘n’ cheese, chilli cheese fries, house pickles and slaw. If you manage to eat it all in one hour you’ll get to take home barbecue sauce and a Grand Champion t-shirt.
