Fishers

Bristol | Clifton | | 26/03/2017

Tucked away in the heart of Clifton Village in Bristol, Fishers offers an accomplished dining experience, combining locally and sustainably sourced fish with exciting foreign cooking styles.

Stepping into this little seafood restaurant in Clifton, you are greeted by a nautical themed interior and friendly, attentive waiting staff. Warm, cosy and full of charm, Fishers offers the kind of intimacy you only expect at a local neighbourhood eatery. However, here, the food does all the talking.

For a business that prides itself on using seasonal fish, the variety is incredible. Just one look at the menu takes you to a world of fishy goodness. From whole baked seabass with chilli, coriander and lime dressing to haddock fish and chips in beer batter with mushy peas and tartare sauce, the current menu at Fishers is studded with exotic jewels alongside good old Blighty classics. It is a menu that has obviously been designed with a “something-for-everyone” ideology.

But the variety does not stop here. Owing to a sustainable ethos, all the seafood at Fishers (yes, all of it), is sourced locally. At Fishers, this is not seen as a nuisance, but as an opportunity; each seasonal menu showcasing the best the South Coast has to offer at that time of the year. The fish is all exceedingly fresh and you can really taste it.

My last visit was a New Year’s Eve treat and the 2016-17 winter menu featured baked skate wing (a personal favourite) with a Mediterranean style salsa. The tangy saltiness of the capers complimented the perfectly cooked fish beautifully. At Fishers, they seriously know what they’re doing!

A main will set you back in the region of £15, but you do get what you are paying for. If you are looking for somewhere in Bristol to celebrate a special occasion or fancy treating yourself, Fishers is perfect. Also, for any culinary whizzes looking to cook with local, quality seafood, the Fishers online shop should certainly not be missed.
