Arnolfini – extended cafe hours

THE SUN HAS GOT HIS HAT ON! HIP HIP HIP HOORAY…..Which means the majority of Bristol will be congregating outside Arnolfini, legs a dangling over the water, grabbing the last of those rays with a cider in hand. To add to this joy, Arnolfini are now extending their kitchen hours on Thursday, Friday and Saturday…

Escape Hunt Bristol: We came out as warriors!

Now, how do you talk about an experience where most of it needs to be kept a secret? Tricky, but I shall try my best to tell you as much as I can about one of Bristol’s newest escape room experiences – maybe with a few hints and tips along the way (got out with…

Happy Bird: launch of new seasonal specials

I absolutely adore the Bristol food scene. Not just for the passionate and inventive people serving such scrummy and exciting food around our gorgeous city, but also for the masses of food lovers who make time to shout about that fab food we have and support the local independents. This was the joyful combo at Happy…

Strawberry Thief: More than just a Belgian Beer Bar

Tucked away in the heart of Bristol’s Old City is the particularly cosy Strawberry Thief bar. The gorgeous William Morris wallpaper (the inspiration for its name), plants and tiled floors, provide a creative and quirky space that celebrates the Independents that surround it. The Strawberry Thief are renowned for their craft beer. With over 75…

The Cauldron Restaurant: A roast to rave about

I have regular realisations that I may be a little too obsessed with food. A recent example? When speaking to a friend about her upcoming wedding plans, my life update was “I went for a really good roast at The Cauldron Restaurant last Sunday!” Let’s not think too much about my life choices… Anyway, I…

Ceres Coffee: now open for dinner!

The place that serves up one of Bristol’s most loved brunches (the sweetcorn fritters and pancake stack dishes are a must try!) is now open for dinner, and it’s lush! Ceres Coffee, the gorgeous Melbourne style cafe in Stokes Croft, offers a three-course menu based on seasonal, local produce. The menu is small: three starters,…

Hobbies: Exploring creativity around Bristol

I have come to the conclusion that I may have acquired too many hobbies. Alongside work, my productivity nemesis – box-sets and social media – and the amount of time that food takes up my thoughts and life, I have developed a love for lots of creative activities that I need to work out a…

Tsukemono: a pop up of pickled things

The fab Japanese Soul food from Tsukemono first came to my attention at a recent yoga brunch, where we were spoilt with mass sharing dishes of tofu, Japanese gravalax and their signature colourful pickled things (Tsukemono translates into “pickled things”. Cute!) I was immediately in love with their experimental approach to Japanese food. The main takeaway from the brunch was however that…

Southside Bar: launch of a new small plates menu

Southside Bar After a stressful and grizzly afternoon tackling a busy town on the weekend (not quite sure what I was thinking there) I popped into the lovely Southside Bar on my way home. Having previously only ventured there for drinks – the outside decking is the perfect spot to catch the last of the…

Yoga Brunch Club: combining my love of food and yoga

If there is one event that epitomises some of my favourite things, it’s a yoga brunch club! The only exercise that I have ever managed to stick to (and saviour of my sanity), combined with my favourite meal of the day and the opportunity to meet lovely people. And when you host it in a gorgeous setting…

Totterdown: Holding onto the community spirit

Yesterday I did what I do best: I pottered about! 🙂 Whilst this grizzly weather makes me impulsively what to hibernate away under the duvet with a box set, I do sometimes get enough energy and motivation to leave the house, other than a dog walk! My mission was to borrow a hula hoop to…
