We’ve been wowed by Grillstocks BBQ fare at their annual events in Bristol before so were excited to see that they were to be the newest addition to St Nicolas Market Glass Arcade, replacing the Trethowan’s Dairy stall.
One week in and the menu is simple but effective. A choice of ribs or hickory pulled pork both served with slaw. I opted for the pork bap. Flavour was good and the meat moist without being greasy. The slaw was refreshing and chunky, adding that all important crunch. (I hate sloppy slaw – nothing worse!). I topped mine off with some spicy barbeque sauce. Not too spicy but just enough flavour to pull everything together.
A satisfying lunch and something different to the other fare on offer in St Nicks. At £4.00 a sandwich its not super-cheap however considering they use local meat and produce it is good value. My only negative point was that they didn’t accept my newly purchased Bristol Pounds – that said, they’ve assured me that this is on the to-do list and that they should be accepting £B1s shortly!
