Why we love it

1766 serves up fantastic flavours set against the backdrop of the oldest continuously working theatre in the English-speaking world. The iconic theatre – Bristol Old Vic – has recently undergone a massive refurbishment of its front of house, revealing the original theatre façade which dates back to 1766. This beautiful backdrop is now home to 1766 bar and kitchen, where head chef Coco Barone is leading the culinary way with style. Coco's Italian roots certainly show, with her dedication to seasonal, local produce, and cooking which simply brings out the flavour of key elements of the dish.


Their counter deliciously displays speciality cakes from local Ahh Toots Bakery
Their classic breakfasts are winners - we love their 'Hail Halloumi' and 'The Full O'Toole'
The perfect place for pre or post theatre foodie goodness

Decent salad box which is a rare thing in the centre of Bristol.


Always a different selection of interesting salads and the sausage rolls are decent.


Beautiful venue, nice staff and good service.


Really beautiful place to enjoy an after work drink, even if you’re not headed to the theatre!


Really tasty light lunch that fills you up. Always quick service would deffo recommend


Great salad boxes. It’s difficult to get a substantial salad in the centre but this one does the job.
