This pub has an impressive four-year waiting list for its Sunday roasts.

The Bank Tavern in Bristol city center has had to stop accepting new bookings to clear a backlog caused by the Covid-19 pandemic.

It became popular for Sunday lunch when host Sam Gregory said “we made a giant stick for our backs” because of its popularity, BristolLive Report.

Sam says he must turn off the pub’s online reservation system now to respect all tables that have been booked since the beginning of Covid and throughout the various lockdowns and restrictions.

He said he currently only has tables and chairs booked for January 2020 because the pub always has a long waiting list.

Sam said: “It had to be on a waiting list for four years until the pandemic hit but as we have a huge amount of reservations for people who can’t eat here due to Covid or lockdown we decided to intend to honor all reservations.

“We actually shut down the booking system so you can’t book online and if we receive any cancellation notices we simply re-inform the people in the logs from two years prior to. We’re currently January 2020 so it will take some time to complete all bookings.

“A lot of the boards out of the two were booked easily, but larger boards of eight or ten were a bit more difficult to fit.”

Sam said to speed up the reset, the pub now opens an extra Wednesday sitting on Sunday, from 5pm to 7pm.

He said the pub was still “out of sight” from time to time even after emailing and phone calls reminded him.

Sam recommends that people still go to the pub on Sunday in case a table is available at the last minute.

“We always tell people if you’re in town, keep your head in the door because sometimes there’s a table if we’re absent. It’s always worth checking out as a precaution,” he said.

Sam says it is “consistency” that has led to the continued success of the pub’s Sunday roasts as well as the attention to detail.

He adds: “We stick with the same meats year-round but add seasonal alternatives like lamb and venison, but our appetizers and desserts change weekly.

“A lot of Sunday workplaces only release reservations for three-month positions and if we had known we were going to be that popular we would have done it but that’s a problem. good to have!”
