Standing proudly on Hill Road near Clevedon’s graceful Victorian pier (worth a sunset visit), Murrays food emporium is dedicated to the best produce that Britain and Italy have to offer. Restaurant, delicatessen and Italian wine shop in one, it's as much a community hub as a foodie destination. The restaurant's seasonal menu is crammed with fresh ingredients, and outdoor dining happens in the stylish new Enoteca space.
John’s Italian roots shine through in his friendly conversation and in the authentic selection of cured meats, anchovies, oils and balsamic vinegars. The handmade pasta uses Italian flour - try the pappardelle with beef shin or the amaretti and squash-stuffed ravioli. The Parma ham and cremini mushroom lasagne has a loyal local following and the capellini with fennel and Cornish crab is an unexpected treat. Murrays' hummus and bread recipes remain close-guarded family secrets, so don't even ask!
Parking can be a little tight so not one for a whistlestop.
