What is The Restaurant That Makes Mistakes?
The Restaurant That Makes Mistakes is a Channel 4 documentary that follows a restaurant in Bristol that is entirely staffed by people with dementia.
Over four episodes and five weeks of running the restaurant, the aim is to change how we perceive those living – and particularly those working – with dementia.
The pop-up restaurant is overseen by famous Bristolian chef Josh Eggleton.
Can you visit the restaurant?
The restaurant that featured in the show is a pop-up in The Station Kitchen, Bristol.
Although the restaurant used for filming is real, The Restaurant That Makes Mistakes project lasted for just five-weeks and concluded on December 12th, 2018.

Who is Josh Eggleton?
Josh is the product of a 2003 Gordan Ramsay scholarship and also appeared on BBC2’s Great British Menu in 2016.
He now owns his own Michelin-starred gastropub in Chew Valley, nine miles from the Bristol city centre in North Somerset.
The 35-year-old turned down hosts of celebrity chef callings to follow his dream and launch his own restaurant, which he now runs with sister Holly.
It’s a mix of gastropub food and local farmers popping in for a pint, with a relaxed atmosphere and everything from portions of thick chips to three-course meals on the menu.
Josh now has six restaurants to his name, including Salt and Malt in Wapping Wharf, Bristol harbour.
Is Josh on social media?
Expect plenty of food envy if you follow him, though!
