Two of Bristol’s much-loved restaurants have been forced to suddenly close this evening.
Michelin-starred Bulrush announced to its Twitter followers this evening that the venue was shutting unexpectedly.
Based in Cotham Road South, Bulrush offers foodies the chance to sample some of the most delicious dishes in the country. It offers an 8-course Tasting Menu & À La Carte on Tuesday to Thursday evenings & Thursday to Saturday lunch for £50 and a 9-course Tasting Menu on Friday & Saturday evenings for £55.
Bulrush was recently named one of the top 100 restaurants in the UK. It is a Michelin Star restaurant in Cotham and it is owned by Chef George Livesey.
It was confirmed earlier this evening that the popular spot will not be serving diners due to a power cut.
They tweeted: “We’ve had a building wide power cut this evening and have unfortunately had to close. Sincere apologies to those affected and we’ll be back up and running tomorrow by lunch.”
On the other side of the city, The Boardroom, based in St Nicholas Street, has also closed its doors.
The Boardroom is owned by The Way Out West Pub Company and offers chocolates and cheeses, paired with a variety of ales, wines, beers, whiskies, gins, ciders, and rums.
Outside of the building, a yellow sign says the eatery and bar was closed for maintenance.
It said: “Temporarily closed for maintenance. Back again soon.”
