‘If you’re looking to soak away your troubles whilst sipping sangria, this is an absolute must-visit’


Food & Wine (USA)

“No place, however, quite sums up Bristol’s sunny personality like The Lido, a Victorian-era swimming club that’s been beautifully restored” :


Telegraph 2015

“The Lido is a friendly and easy restaurant: the food has brio, from a chef who knows what he’s up to.”, August 2017

“A positively chic hang-out, with a restaurant and spa giving it more the feel of a luxury hotel than your average council pool.”


Khoollect July 2017

“It’s a place that could easily be mistaken for the Italian Riveria rather than a courtyard in Clifton.”


Evening Standard, November 2016

“A local hotspot, the Lido is a tranquil retreat close to the city’s friendly suburb, Clifton. Make sure you have a hearty meal in the exceptional restaurant which looks out onto the swimming pool and Victorian architecture.”
