Acclaimed ‘beer & Indian’ restaurant planning Bold Street opening

An acclaimed ‘beer & Indian’ restaurant recommended in the 2017 Michelin Guide is planning to open on Bold Street.

Bundobust, which has branches in Leeds and Manchester, serves up meat-free grub inspired by Indian street food alongside a range of craft beers.

According to a licensing application submitted to Liverpool City Council, Bundobust is seeking position to operate a restaurant at 21 Bold Street.

The building is currently occupied by a Greggs. It’s understood the application refers to the upper levels of the building and, as such, will not affect the bakery.

Bundobust was formed originally formed in Leeds when Bradford’s craft beer bar ‘The Sparrow’ and Indian restaurant ‘Prashad’ united.

Starting life as a pop-up, Bundobust opened its first permanent eatery in July 2014 on Mill Hill in Leeds.

According to its website, Bundobust is inspired by the “vibrant and varied street foods of India” and offers a “roster of the most exciting craft beers from both local and international breweries to drink alongside”.

December 2016 saw the ‘beer & Indian’ venue open its doors on Piccadilly in Manchester.

A Greggs spokesperson told Your Move: “We have no plans to close our Bold Street shop. We will be continuing to serve our customers their favourite products throughout the day.”

Your Move has approached Bundobust for comment.
