New pizzeria opens in Keynsham


The brand-new pizzeria will open in Keynsham's new Chocolate Quarter

A new all-day restaurant specialising in authentic wood-fired pizzas, quality coffee and local produce will open next month (November) in Keynsham, on the outskirts of Bristol.

The new restaurant called B Block will open on Monday 6 November in the highly anticipated new Chocolate Quarter, currently being developed on the site of the former Frys, and subsequently Cadbury’s, chocolate factory.

The restaurant will open for breakfast and lunch on Monday 6 and Tuesday 7 November and open for dinner service as well from Wednesday 8 November.

The name and style of the restaurant highlights the building’s heritage. Housed within one of the original factory buildings, the 60-cover restaurant is styled with bespoke furniture, salvaged light fittings, iron work and reclaimed decorative items to create a stripped back industrial feel.

B Block seamlessly transforms from a coffee spot serving breakfast and authentic pizzas by day to a stylish restaurant by night, offering customers everything from a power breakfast, leisurely lunch, coffee and cake to evening dinner and drinks.

Open from 7.30am until 9.30pm daily, B Block is led by chefs Adrian Kirikmaa and Ben Sacree (ex-Flour and Ash head chef). Breakfast includes top quality coffee – supplied by Bristol coffee merchant Brian Wogan – freshly-made smoothies, pastries and bread whilst the lunch menu features a variety of authentic wood-fired pizzas, salads, flat breads and paninis. Come dinner expect a selection of starters alongside locally sourced, seasonal meat, fish and vegetarian dishes. In the evening an array of quality wines, gins, local ciders and craft beers are also available.   

Adrian and Ben have worked with renowned Bristol chef Josh Eggleton to create the concept for B Block and define the offering. 

B Block is located in the new Chocolate Quarter, a £60 million redevelopment of Keynsham’s former chocolate factory site by St Monica Trust. The development will provide a new community hub for Keynsham offering new restaurants, a swimming pool, gym and spa and a wealth of family activities for residents and visitors to the area to enjoy in addition to the luxury retirement apartments and care home that will be a core part of the development. 

B Block is located within an 8 minute walk of Keynsham High Street. There is a bus stop located outside of B Block and a train station within a 5 minute walk of The Chocolate Quarter.
