Over the past four years, Craig Summers and Giles Coram have put this modest Stokes Croft restaurant on Bristol’s culinary map, despite being closed for a large chunk of that time due to pandemic lockdowns and restrictions. Originally part of Tucketts Buildings, this site next to the newly redeveloped Carriageworks was once a Victorian grocery and provisions store. The building was divided up in the 1920s and number 108a, where Caper and Cure is now, was a chemists - you can still spot the original mosaic-tiled signage on the floor by the front door. Before taking on this site, Coram and Summers were working at the much-missed Wallfish Bistro in Clifton Village. Summers is head chef and Coram - a professional actor by trade - runs the front-of-house with considerable charm and ease. During lockdowns last year, the duo had time to give the restaurant and its basement dining room a gentle makeover and it’s looking a lot cosier and sharper than before. One wall has a hand drawn map of Europe with pointers to many of the places where the restaurant’s wine and ingredients are sourced. There’s also a new board listing the day’s specials and wines of the week by the glass or bottle. The printed menu is concise with five starters and mains, plus a handful of ‘snacks’ such as roasted Valencian almonds and chorizo and Cheddar beignets, all priced between £2.50 and £4. As with Wallfish Bistro, fish and seafood is a strength of the kitchen here and our starters lived up to that reputation. Carefully cooked and impressively tender Cornish squid (£10) was teamed with spicy venison chorizo, chickpeas with a decent bite, black cabbage and a punchy salsa. The monkfish tail main course at Caper and Cure Super-fresh Devon crab piled onto thick sourdough toast (£9.50) only needed some peppery Dorset watercress and a wedge of lemon for accompaniment. I also went down the fish route for a main course of monkfish tail with brown shrimps, capers, radishes, herbs and purple sprouting broccoli (£23). The pearly white monkfish was firm, meaty and sweet, with the salty shrimps and capers countering the herby butter sauce. Razor-thin slices of radish and al dente purple sprouting broccoli completed a deeply satisfying dish of perfect poise. Middle White pork belly (£17) that was more meat than fat (not always a given with this cut) boasted a depth of flavour that only comes from pigs that have enjoyed their lives rather than spending their time in packed sheds awaiting the inevitable. The pork was served with creamy black beans, bitter cavolo nero, sweet and earthy Delica pumpkin and romesco. No visit to Caper and Cure would be complete without a portion of truffle chips (£3.50) which have achieved something akin to legendary status. Fat, fluffy and grease-free, they only have a hint of truffle oil about them but it’s the all-important crunch that elevates them to the highest order. There simply isn’t a better chip in Bristol. The 'legendary' truffle chips served at Stokes Croft restaurant Caper and Cure To finish, a comically wobbly wildflower honey pannacotta (£6) had a discreet sweetness and the delicate saffron-poached pears and crushed pistachios were equally restrained. It was a faultless meal and up there with the best I’ve had in Bristol all year. Confident cooking of carefully sourced ingredients served with charm - and the best chips you’ll find anywhere in the city. What’s not to love about Caper and Cure?
