More about The Willy Wicket

A former dairy farm, The Willy Wicket serves quintessentially British food from an extensive menu, and enjoys a grassy beer garden framed by the pub’s red-brick exterior. Based in Bristol, the dining room features roaring open fires, black oak beam ceilings and squashy leather sofas.

Hearty Sunday roasts and trusty British dishes head The Willy Wicket menu, and a range just for kids offers mini versions of pub favourites. Signature Vintage pies designed by celebrity chef James Martin offer fillings like beef & merlot with buttered peas, while the ‘Vintage classics’ menu includes lemon & garlic-roasted chicken with seasoned chips.

Paying homage to the Great British pub, the Vintage Inn bar stock includes cask-conditioned beers, real ales and a meticulously compiled wine list. Thirst-quenching offerings include seasonal non-alcoholic cocktails and freshly-pressed juices, and rich coffee is brewed freshly throughout the day.

Surrounded by rolling countryside, The Willy Wicket in Downend boasts many rambling walks and idyllic beauty spots, while The Kendleshire Golf Club is just a 4-minute drive away.

My first visit here to meet friends. Over all it was a very pleasant experience. Friendly staff and the service was quick. Lets hope that you open a restaurant closer to home as I had a 50 minute drive to get to the Willy Wicket but it was worth the journey.

Having visited your premises on about half a dozen occasions we took 2 friends with us yesterday as one friend is disabled and felt your premises being on the level was easy for her to gain access and move around inside, which proved fine. Were a little disappointed to find the restaurant to the left when you enter the main door was shut off and we were put right along the far end where it felt a little crowded and not very spacious for our friend to move with her walking aid.
We took advantage of the 2 courses for £8.50 which we felt was a good deal - and must say the staff were very friendly and attentive.
