about us

Established in 1997, riverstation has always been at the forefront of the Bristol food scene.


Under the direction of our Head Chef, Toru Yanada, it remains innovative and committed to the ideals of its foundation. Throughout its existence riverstation has been enthusiastic about getting the best out of local produce. We have cultivated a network of suppliers who feel the same way as we do and who provide us with the best the seasons have to offer. We change the restaurant menus daily to ensure that we are sourcing the best ingredients and we believe that this shows on the plate.

The origins of the restaurant reach back to the founding of Bell’s Diner in the 1970s by John Payne and ShirleyAnne Bell. Pioneering the use of local produce this small restaurant was a great success, offering unpretentiously good food in comfortable surroundings. The restaurant was joined by Peter Taylor in the mid 1980s, bringing an interest in wine and a keen palate to the kitchen. A desire to create a more modern restaurant in a central location led to the discovery of Bristol’s former River Police Station. This building provided an ideal site for an ambitious new dining location on the waterfront. riverstation opened its doors in December 1997, winning instant acclaim for its light, modern design.

The restaurant is still independently owned by John Payne and ShirleyAnne Bell. Peter Taylor has since moved on to run Auberge de Chassignolles in rural France.

suppliers


We care a lot about food. We take a great deal of pride in the ingredients we use and how we prepare and cook them. We source our ingredients and suppliers carefully. From the organic Shipton Mill flour we use in our bread to the free-range eggs we use in our ice cream. We smoke our own fish, we churn our own butter and we make our own chutney and jams.

Below are some of our suppliers that help us make the food + drink at riverstation as good as it is:
