Slowly out of lockdown

Many pubs and restaurants will open for socially-distanced customers on 4th July. Here are details of the plans of pubs and restaurants around Bathurst Basin.

The Louisana

During the lockdown period the Lousiana had been offering a takeaway Sunday Roast service. Residents who lived locally could bring their own plates which saved on packaging waste. All ingredients were locally sourced. The pub has recently started offering sourdough pizzas. Customers can order and either collect them or have them delivered in the Redcliffe, Southville and Bedminster areas. We understand that from 4th July the Lousiana will be doing table service and plan to open their ‘secret garden’. 

The Ostrich

Andrew Clarke, the General Manager of the Ostrich, tells us that they plan to reopen on 8th July. Andrew promises that the inn will return

with some exciting new additions and a range of health and safety and social distancing measures in place to keep our customers and team safe. Our new Top Deck indoor bar and restaurant space is stocked up and ready for table-service reservations, while outside our new Keg & Coupler bar and Portside BBQ area is ready to rock and roll, serving delicious street food, Butcombe beer, cider and wine to the masses. We’ve also added two pagoda shelters for rainy days and extended toilet facilities.

Our outside space is ‘first come, first served’ table service only, with customers now able to order via the new Butcombe Order & Pay app. To comply with social distancing guidelines, our inside ground floor bar will be used for drinks dispense only, and is not available for bookings or walk-ins.

Casamia and Paco Tapas

Casamia’s first service will be on 5th August, then Wednesday to Saturday with no planned closures until Christmas. They are also planning a single Sunday afternoon service each month. The restaurant will open with just six tables and a maximum of eighteen covers. Intriguingly they are promising to extend their menu to around twenty courses. 

Paco Tapas plan to open a week earlier, from Tuesday 28th July.
