Rob Howell, Root

Friday Chef Demo / Kitchen DiscoCooking Demo stage

Head Chef of Root, Rob’s vegetable led menu has been gaining attention since the opening and was awarded a Bib-Gourmand in 2018.

The restaurant is housed in shipping containers, harbour-side in Bristol’s Wapping Wharf. He opened Root alongside Josh Eggleton and, our very own, Luke Hasell in 2017 and runs it with his wife, Megan, covering front of house.

Rob works with fantastic local ingredients to create simple, honest and produce-driven food. He considers his location in Bristol to be a real advantage, affording him access to exciting produce from the surrounding countryside. Working alongside a hard-working and passionate team, he ensures that Root’s food offering stays waveringly fresh, sustainable and, ultimately, delicious.
