The Hort’s Story

Siblings Richard, Annie and Bessie Hort came from a long line of caterers, their mother and maternal grandmother had run eating houses, while their father, William Hort, had been Bristol’s chief rates collector. They grew up in the family business, the Exchange Dining Rooms in Wine Street – the most fashionable restaurant in Bristol, where the first cocktails ever to be mixed in the city are said to have been made here. The restaurant moved to its present Broad Street site (now, Hort’s Townhouse) in 1922 with signature dishes including oyster soup and Dover sole.
