GrillStock BBQ Joint

I love going on little foodie adventures with my family, and they just about suffer my passion for good food. We just had a little trip up to Bristol, to visit GrillStocks new BBQ Joint, in St Nicholas’ Market.

Not often venturing into the Big Smoke, it has been quite a while since I’d been to St Nicholas’ Market, so was pleasantly surprised to see what a bustling foodie mecca it had become with lots of tempting options, but seeing as I had dragged my family up for this, we had to go for BBQ. We opted for a Pulled Pork Bap (£4) and a ‘Holy Moly’ Special (£12) to share between 4 of us.

The pulled pork bap with slaw was juicy and smoky, and my kids enjoyed it immensely having been raised on good BBQ. The ‘Holy Moly’ Special consisted of a pulled pork roll, a rack of baby back ribs, some burnt end beans, it was only later that I realised it should have come with extra slaw and some pickles, but was nonetheless very good, I probably would have liked the sauce for the beans a bit thicker and richer as it has soaked up into the bottom of the roll making it very soggy, the ribs were fantastic, smoky and spicy.

Seating is the only real issue here, and we visited at a busy time, it’s difficult hanging around for an empty table with a couple of hungry little foodies, but as we left the tables had all been freed up.

  1. I lived in Bristol between 1997 and 2000 and St. Nicholas Market was very good then – I’m glad to hear it’s still thriving. That’s great looking BBQ too 🙂
