It’s already one of Madrid’s favourite watering holes and restaurants, but now Bristol Bar (www.bristolbar.es) has added to its allure with the addition of Chicken Masala Tikka to its already very British menu. This popular curry dish is eaten by most people in the UK at least once a week, and now visitors to Bristol Bar can enjoy it as part of the very British experience that the restaurant offers.

The trendy gathering point for Spaniards and expats in Calle Admirante 20 also has one of the best gin selections in town. In the front bar, there are no less than 60 gin labels to choose from including the simply delicious Ish which is served with a sprig of parsley. Let owner and gin expert Elle Baker guide you in your choice. There’s a lively crowd there most nights and it’s the perfect place to relax with friends or make new ones.

Moving past the bar you’ll find the restaurant with walls painted in charcoal grey and chairs in crimson. Photos of Winston Churchill hang proudly on the walls making for a stylish place to dine on real British cuisine. The menu offers excellent choices such as vegetable quiche, roast beef with Yorkshire pudding and gravy or the ‘must try’ steak and Guinness pie. All these dishes are cooked to absolute perfection. Now adding to the experience is Britain’s favourite, adopted dish – Chicken Masala Tikka – a delightful mix of chicken chunks cooked in a spicy tomato and yogurt sauce and topped with fresh coriander.
