Jerk Chicken, Bristol & Beyond

The Jerk King team of 12 are looking forward to a full-on year of festivals, corporate and private events, sporting events, Birthdays, hen, and stag dos, as well as our permanent spots at Malcolm X Community Centre, every Friday, and at the Memorial Stadium for all Bristol Rovers home matches – wander up Gloucester Rd and you can smell the delicious, mouth-watering Jamaican food cooking from there.
Every dish is cooked from scratch on-site and we’ve recent additions to our menu including loaded fries to the delight of our customers – check out the pics in our gallery. For the best jerk chicken in Bristol, catch us at an event near you or come along to Malcolm X every Friday or one of Bristol Rovers home games.
Our reward scheme was incredibly successful, when it ran, buy 4 Jerk King meals and get a 5th for free – over 100 free meals given!
Established in 2014, Jerk King found its wings in no time catering at St Pauls Carnival and The Ship Inn where demand was phenomenal, over 170 covers. When it comes to jerk chicken, Jerk King stands far above the competition, we say it’s Bristol’s best and so do our customers. I must thank, in no uncertain terms, my father and grandmother who taught me to cook and are my inspiration for Jerk King. My father, apart from being an Olympic weightlifter in his younger days, had Jamaican restaurants on Stokes Croft and Union St, in the late ’80s, called Quisine. This has all helped to make this company, along with strength and determination, probably the #1 pop-up supplier of Jamaican jerk in the UK today.

Girlfriend & I got 4 portions of jerk chicken. With salad. Absolutely lovely and would recommend anyone to stop and get food from this place. The homemade sauce which accompanied the jerk chicken was spot on. 10/10 keep up the good cooking skills and look forward to seeing you guys in the near future at your next pop up location.

Great food, great customer service! Ashley went out of his way to make the day work for us even though he had another party on and the food went down very well, nothing left over!

Jerk King catered for my son's party. The jerk chicken was just perfect. Everyone enjoyed the food and had nothing but positive things to say. There was so much chicken for the price we paid that we even got to take some home after the party. I highly recommend Jerk King.

The best food around, when someone suggested Ash/Jerk King to me for our hen weekend I had to get in touch and oh, how glad I did. The Jerk chicken, steamed fish, rice and peas, macaroni pie and sauce were to die for, and we highly recommend Jerk King for any event! Thanks a million, Ash.

We had a family party tonight for a 60th birthday and hiring Jerk King was the best move we made! The food was amazing! Everyone absolutely loved the food! It’s the best jerk we’ve had and so tasty! Ashley brought great vibes and just added a great touch to a very perfect evening and without a doubt would highly recommend ! Thank you Ashley, outstanding!

I would just like to say that I've eaten a lot of chicken in my time, but yours was by far the best thing that's entered my mouth, absolutely unreal, and that sauce - oh, that sauce! (I've just had some more for breakfast), thank you and keep up the good work!
