Heaven’s a Spitfire

Woodsmoke. Barbeque. Meat. The smells that hit you as you walk into Spitfire BBQ are incredible. I visited the restaurant on Bristol’s harbourside for lunch today and was not disappointed!

The lunch menu is incredibly good value at £6.95 for a substantial main course and a soft drink. There is a good selection of options too; pulled pork bun, bbq rib ends, smoky chicken wrap and more. All come with chunky chips or salad too. The lunch menu’s not on their website, but you’ll have to take my word for it!


Today I went for the beef jaffle. “Jaffle? What is that?” I hear you cry! Well it’s a South African toastie made on the BBQ. Sandwiched between two rounds of crispy bread was a delicious mince beef and vegetable filling. It wasn’t spicy but was full of flavour and the beef was cooked to perfection. Spitfire have a few different sauces on the table, and the 10/10 hotness-rated one was a perfect accompaniment to my jaffle.

My colleagues mostly tried the pulled pork bap and were suitably impressed. Everything is cooked in an open plan kitchen where you can see hunks of meat going into the smoky BBQs in the middle. I can’t wait to go back and have the full menu. I feel a rack of ribs calling!
