“Bristol’s only Salt Beef Bar –

and it’s truly wonderful”

Mark Taylor, Bristol Post


The Pickled Brisket is Bristol’s only salt beef bar. Our multi-award winning sandwiches have been a regular on the Bristol street food scene for the past few years. We are now doing our beefy-thing from a container at Cargo 2, at Wapping Wharf.

Our Food

We cure locally sourced beef farmed on the Somerset Levels and serve it on bread from a local family bakery. We even have our own mustard produced here in Bristol by Gingerbeard’s Preserves. Each sandwich is carved to order to provide a hot salt beef sandwich that would be fit to grace the plate of any New York deli. We serve a variety of different hot salt beef treats including our famed Reuben with blow torched Swiss Cheese.We also do a veggie version, breadless boxes and smoked salmon from The Valley Smokehouse.


Bristol’s only salt beef bar is now at Unit 3, Cargo 2 at Wapping Wharf.  Serving out of a container nestled amongst other great independents, The Pickled Brisket is open Tuesday to Sunday from 12 noon until late. We offer lunch time deals and office catering for nearby businesses. For enquiries please email
