While we normally focus our attentions on glamping yurts, there is a popular eatery, housed in a yurt in Bristol that we love with a charming name that can only really be said in a true Bristolian accent – Yurt Lush. In case you were panicking that they weren’t in the same place you last saw them, we can confirm they have recently relocated to another spot in the South West city.
Now in its new home in Clock Tower Yard, due to its owners taking a break from their Eat Drink Bristol Fashion festival for 2016, the emphasis has now shifted from the festival to Yurt Lush, meaning the new venue will play host to an exciting schedule. Visitors can look forward to music gigs, guest chef nights, as well as a range of other mouth-watering events being lined up.
Amelia Twine, Eat Drink Bristol Fashion managing director, said: “We are really pleased Yurt Lush has such a fantastic new home, right behind a historic archway in the centre of Bristol. We’ll be returning with longer opening hours, a bigger breakfast menu and an extra yurt to accommodate more parties and celebrations.
“After four brilliant years, we’re giving our festival a break so we can establish Yurt Lush at its new home in Temple Meads and as ever, we’ve got a few exciting ideas up our sleeve.”
Take a visit to the city’s Temple Meads Station, escape the chain eateries, and enjoy the tasty lunch menu, served daily. Alternatively, you can head on down to try the Yurt Lush Sunday lunch, which will be making a much-anticipated comeback.
Chef Josh Eggleton, Eat Drink Bristol Fashion director, added: “Yurt Lush is all about establishing Eat Drink Bristol Fashion as the Bristol hub of fresh sustainable food. We’ll be right next to some great businesses like the Boxworks, Harts Bakery and the Invisible Circus so the location feels like a great fit for our yurts.”
