2016 Best English Restaurant, Best Independant Restaurant & Best Restaurant and the Food Made Good sustainable restaurant awards!
Since its birth in 2004 Poco has toured the uk’s best festivals, preparing mountainous feasts for hungry revellers. Our charcoal grilled fish, meats and wraps bursting with colourful superfood salads have become legendary with festival goer and crew alike.
In Autumn of 2011 the we took a step further and set up our first cafe in bricks and mortar, at the heart of an area as vibrant and full of flavour as our food- Bristols Stokes Croft. This thriving community and hotbed of creativity has welcomed us with open arms and given us the perfect home to lay down our roots which have now grown East to our sister restaurant on Hackneys Broadway Market.
Tom Hunt, Jen Best and Ben Pryor opened up shop on the corner of Jamaica Street and brought together a devotion to seasonality, locality, great food and atmosphere with a core passion for sustainability which has seen them gain widespread acclaim and numerous awards for both their ethical practise as well as the quality of their food.
Tom, Executive Chef of Poco, is also founder of Forgotten Feast, a Social Enterprise working on projects throughout the UK to revive our cooking heritage and help reduce food waste.
