Pass the Serrano!

With three established sites in Wales, siblings Tom, Owen and Natalie Morgan are bringing their modern Spanish dining concept back to their roots in Bristol.

There will be a bar menu of purely Spanish drinks, including unfamiliar sherries and wines from all corners of Spain. Meanwhile, the bill of fare promises much more than just patatas bravas: although we don't have menu specifics for the new site just yet, Bar 44 is known for its seasonal selection of tapas dishes.

Some of the plates available at existing locations include, jamón Serrano, scallop and cuttlefish empanada, and confit duck and morcilla burgers with piquillo ketchup.

The new restaurant is in Clifton Village, having taken over the building previously occupied by pizza restaurant Wildwood.

“We all spent our formative years here in Bristol and have always wanted to bring our version of modern Spanish hospitality to the city,' says Tom. "I’m so excited about the space we have inherited. After a complete redesign, we will open in July and I can already picture a busy, bustling tapas bar which will hopefully become a real hub of the community.”

Bar 44 is set to open in mid-July, follow @Bar44Bristol on Twitter to keep up with updates on the new restaurant.
