The Pony and Trap in Chew Magna, Somerset, has announced it is to launch a second location in South Bristol.

The Michelin-starred gastropub, which is owned and operated by brother and sister duo Josh and Holly Eggleton, will open its new site on North Street in Bristol's Bedminster district. 

News of the second site was announced on the pub's Instagram​ last week, although details about when it will launch remain under wraps.

The post said: "We are opening a second restaurant in South Bristol!

"Details coming soon..."

The Eggleton's took over the running of the 200-year-old Pony and Trap pub back in 2006, serving a daily-changing menu of ingredient-led dishes.

It earned a Michelin star in 2010, which it continues to hold.

As well as being chef-patron at The Pony and Trap, Josh runs award-winning fish and chip restaurant Salt and Malt and the vegetable-centric Root at the Cargo development in Wapping Wharf; The Kensington Arms in Redland; and Yurt Lush in Redcliffe.

In July this year following the lifting of nationwide Coronavirus lockdown restrictions he also joined forces with other Bristol-based chefs and restaurateurs to launch Breaking Bread​, a pop-up restaurant space at the bottom of Clifton Downs that was created to give a boost to the city’s hospitality sector.
