The Star and Dove has reopened and is being run by Chris and Mel Lippett, in partnership with Chris’s brother Steven. Chris worked at the pub ten years ago before marrying his Australian wife and emigrating. The couple returned to Bristol last year and said: “We want to take the pub back to being a community pub that’s also family-friendly.”
The Star and Dove has a more contemporary style and serves beers, ciders and cocktails. Later this month British dishes will be served in the downstairs restaurant – including beef and ale pie, faggots and mash, and gammon, duck egg and chips. A children’s menu will also be available.
A new function room will be located upstairs.
