Your Reception Venue

Racks knows how to throw a party and whatever ambiance you wish to create, from DJ’s to live bands, we can offer you a Wedding Reception you will not forget. Although not licensed to host your ceremony, Racks Bar and Kitchen is a stylish and modern alternative to traditional wedding receptions, offering a range of versatile and unique spaces, a sun-kissed outdoor terrace, along with three great wedding packages Racks is able to cater to your every need on your special day.


The Playroom is our Private Function area which can host up to 80 people and is a self-contained area with its own bar and toilet facilities. In keeping within its roots as the wine cellars of Bristol’s bottle merchants the Playroom is a homely, rustic space. With its historic brickwork, antique tin walls and vintage lighting, the playroom is the perfect location to leave a lasting impression on all your guests. For those larger celebrations, up to 120 people, we also offer an additional room with adjoining alcoves. The Speakeasy is a cosy space with chunky wood and cushioned bench seating. The adjoining alcoves are the ideal place, full of character, to enjoy a more romantic and intimate moment, a location extremely difficult to forget.


If you envision your wedding reception al fresco we offer a large, versatile outdoor terrace perfect for Wedding Reception BBQs in the summer or hog-roasts in the winter months.

During the colder period the terrace is transformed into a covered, fully heated retreat creating a warm and cosy ambiance.


Allow us to provide you with a delicious and unforgettable dining experience, you and your guests will be spoiled with flavour and we’ll ensure everything is taken care of. We feel it is our duty to make the most of the fantastic ingredients on our doorstep – where possible sourcing locally from the West Country.

Our relationship with local butchers, greengrocers, bakers and fishmongers ensures we have the finest produce around.


With a large dance floor and perfect space for a live band or DJ, Racks offers a faultless location for you to enjoy your first dance as a married couple, along with enough space for you and all your guests to enjoy your evening celebrations.
