Salt & Malt, Cargo 2


It’s about time we had a fish and chip shop on the harbourside…and it’s now becoming a reality! On June 15th, chef Josh Eggleton will be opening his Bristol branch of Salt & Malt, following in the footsteps of his restaurant, takeaway and tearoom based on Chew Valley Lake.

The Chew Valley restaurant first opened in 2014, becoming known for its gluten-free fish and chips and its amazing views (read our review here). At the Wapping Wharf restaurant, gluten-free recipes will still be at the heart of the menu. All ingredients will be sourced from sustainable South West sauces, with every single item on the menu made fresh each day on-site, including their popular chip shop curry sauce.

Speaking about the opening, Josh Eggleton explains, “Fish and chips is one of those classic British dishes that when done right, really takes some beating. My first proper job was in a chip shop, so this is something that I’ve loved for a long time. Ever since we opened Salt & Malt on Chew Valley Lake, we’ve had our eye on opening a second in a waterside location in Bristol but this depended on having the perfect spot. Cargo 2 puts us in great company with some of the most exciting independent businesses in the city. There’s something special about eating fish and chips by the water that just makes the experience that much better.”

The new restaurant will have seats for 24 people, as well as a takeaway counter. It will be open for lunch and dinner, serving gluten-free fish and chips, fishcakes, scampi, South West sausages, simple veggie dishes and daily specials that are based on fresh catches from the south coast.
