Josh Eggleton to open second Salt & Malt in Bristol

Michelin-starred chef Josh Eggleton of the Pony & Trap, Chew Magna, is to open a second Salt & Malt at Wapping Wharf's Cargo 2 in Bristol next year.

The first shipping containers for the second phase of Cargo are due to arrive on site today (14 December), adjacent to Cargo 1, where Eggleton's Chicken Shed and 2013 MasterChef finalist Larkin Cen's Woky Ko are already open.

Cargo 2, part of Bristol's first retail yard made of converted shipping containers, will be home to businesses including Gambas, the Athenian, Pizzarova and Tare restaurant.

Salt & Malt will serve its signature gluten-free fish and chips, as well as holding pop-up events and tasting menus, and will have an outdoor terrace with views of the Matthew and Bristol's Floating Harbour.

Eggleton said: "We've been thinking about a second Salt & Malt for a while now, but it was all about the right location. It was always important that any other Salt & Malt locations would be by the water, it needed to have that waterfront, and community vibe and Cargo 2 is the perfect spot for that."

Cargo 2 will have 49 containers, and is due to open in early 2017.
