In Downend, an outer suburb of Bristol, The Willy Wicket provides a charming pub experience for those in search of a hearty meal and golden pint of cask ale.

Just off the A432, this Vintage Inns restaurant serves food every day of the week, starting with a great fixed price lunch menu in the day, and a main menu served all day long, with a hearty roast available on Sundays and a seasonal set menu.

Inviting you with a warm embrace, The Willy Wicket has a cosy atmosphere adorned with Chesterfield leather armchairs, rustic wooden pillars, and chequered furnishings. A snug and welcoming environment is paired well with the restaurant’s pub-style dishes, that lie at the very heart of British dining.

Begin your meal with baked scallops and king prawns in a creamy garlic and cheese sauce, or some sticky crispy chicken bites in a chipotle chilli jam, before transitioning to the main course, where a good selection of options awaits. Choose from the duo of lamb - a tender rump served medium alongside a hearty shepherd's pie, an oyster mushroom burger or light chicken Caesar salad. If you’ve left room for dessert, there’s plenty to choose from, including a raspberry Eton mess and sticky toffee pudding with lashings of hot, creamy custard.

You’ll find a healthily stocked bar, with plenty of comfy chairs to kick back and relax in. Why not try a local hand-pulled ale or cider, or an exotic Cuban Mai Tai. If you prefer something non-alcoholic, there’s a good list of softs and mocktails, including the zesty Amalfi Spritz. If you’re popping in for a pint with some colleagues after work or enjoying a family meal on a sunny summer’s day, you may like to enjoy The Willy Wicket’s pub garden, where four legged friends are welcome.
