4 out of 5 stars

Brunch or lunch is served in unusual surrounds at this yurt-style restaurant, headed up by a Michelin-starred chef. Stop by on Sunday for a great roast

Yurt Lush embodies a little bit of Bristol in everything it does: a tongue-in-cheek name that nods to it's Brizzle heritage; a bit of world culture (without the hemp and poi stylings of other establishments) in a Mongolian yurt; a Michelin-starred chef in director Josh Eggleton, and a kind of friendly aplomb that some will tell you is a special Bristolian trait.

The menu is split into brunch and lunch. The full English (£7.95) is, pound for pound, one of Bristol's best fry ups, featuring sausage, bacon, house beans (absolutely blinding), tomato, mushrooms, toast, fried egg and crisp homemade hash browns. Don’t expect shrinking, water filled bacon or spongey sausages, either – it’s all sustainably sourced, high-quality stuff.

Front of house is held by the lovely Shona and her team, and lunch brings about a bit more of the haute cuisine the Eat Drink Bristol Fashion team are known for. Plump for the Bristol Beer Factory beef stew with lovely, doughy dumplings and chargrilled greens (£7.50) and you are in for a treat. Comforting, tasty, rich and a decent portion with the blackened greens cutting through the velvety, boozy gravy.

If you find yourself in the vicinity on a Sunday, experience a roast courtesy of the Story Organic and Community Farm for a decent £12.50 – the cauliflower cheese alone is worth the dosh. Yurt Lush succeeds in affordable, fantastic nosh in a unique setting. Not many can make that claim.

Yurt Lush is a an interesting place; traditional fare served in perhaps the most untraditional setting you could think of.

On Sundays they only serve roasts and we had a choice of pork, beef or nut roast so went for the first two. There are children's portions available too.

We received a deep friend salmon ball with wasabi coleslaw as an amuse Bush which was very nice.

The roast was top notch too. Huge yorkies sat atop a generous portion of meat, potatoes and cabbage which came with a side of cheesy broccoli.

It's a unique dining experience, not just because of the yurt itself but because the toilets are in a storage container opposite the restaurant which was a first for me.

For £40 for 2 roasts plus drinks, I think it's well worth the visit.

NB, I have been into the yurt in winter for a coffee and it was COLD. So as winter approaches you may want to wrap up.
