It is already being hotly tipped to become one of the most popular in Bristol.
A spokesman said it will offer “a combination of freshly prepared seasonal, local, organic and wild food, on a daily changing menu”.
The original River Cottage Canteen in Devon has won a host of awards and is seen as one of the best restaurants in the South West by critics.
The team behind the new branch has signed a 15-year lease on the 4,000 square foot building in Whiteladies Road and the conversion has been designed and overseen by Bristol-based agency Simple Simon.
A restaurant spokesman said that 90 per cent of the restaurant’s produce will be coming from within a 50 mile radius of the canteen.
Suppliers include the Community Farm in Chew Magna who will supply vegetables and Sunseed Organics based behind Temple Meads in Bristol.
The Canteen's organic cattle and poultry will come from a variety of sources. Story Farm in Compton Martin, Chew Valley, Stream Farm in Bridgewater, which has a co-operative of farmers working the land as well as Sheepdrove, who have their shop just over the road from Bristol Canteen.
Development chef Andrew Green said: "As the canteen opens, more and more small growers, breeders and producers will be discovered - hidden gems in amongst the wealth of Bristol countryside.
“We never rest on our laurels and our door is always open to new suppliers that meet our ethos.”
