Espensen Spirit: learning to infuse some tasty gin

I recently had the absolute pleasure of attending a gin/vodka infusion workshop at the beautiful Bristol Spirit. Having purchased a workshop as a present to my mum last year (where they caused a raucous but had the BEST time) I was jealous and could not wait to try it out for myself. Who are they?…

Heartfelt Vintage – Vegan afternoon tea

I use the words fabulous and fab A LOT. Probably (definitely) too much… But there are some experiences that warrant the use of the word. Having spent a truly scrumptious and indulgent afternoon in the delightful surroundings of Heartfelt Vintage, I have found said fabulous experience! Surrounded by their beautiful collection of vintage fashion, bridal wear…

Thali: Alternative Festive Feast

Christmas dinner is a pretty big deal – I probably get far too excited about it if I am honest. It’s my absolute favourite meal of the year, right from the ribs starter (mother goose is threatening to remove this tradition so I’m continuously campaigning to keep it) heaps of roast potatoes, to the post…

Suncraft: Tasty food for the soul

As the weather turns grizzly, part of you may be craving all the stodge (if you’re like me, it will be mostly potato based) but your body is likely in most need of all the healthy stuff to help your body ward off the inevitable lurgy trying to attack from every corner. A few years…

A Fair Shot: make your office lunch more exciting

Most of us have been there…the  dreaded meeting that runs over lunchtime. There are promises of food (unless your company is mean!), but the usual affair of sad sandwiches and trays of crisps is little in the way of compensation for spending your lunch hour locked in a meeting room. A Fair Shot catering are…

1766 Bar and Kitchen

If there is one thing that will get me out and about on a rainy day, it’s the promise of scrummy food! A few weeks ago I ventured out on a grizzly Saturday to check out what’s been going on behind the scaffolding in the newly refurbished Bristol Old Vic. And it was worth getting…

Miller Green: First Supper Club

There is something particularly lovely about a supper club. One big table of people brought together by their love of food. A delicious menu made with obvious love and passion. A delightful evening of varying conversations with new and interesting people. The randomness when you actually find yourself sitting opposite someone who works in the…

Abergavenny Food Festival: The perfect foodie and boozy weekend!

Abergavenny Food Festival is a weekend-long celebration of local produce. A fab excuse to eat and drink, meet lovely people passionate about food and dance amongst the ruins of a castle… Dreamy! My recipe for a perfect weekend. 🙂 With our wristbands on (bought in advance so they were slightly cheaper) we had access to the…

Bristol Food Tour – East to West Tour

Anyone else feel like they can never keep up with Bristol’s continuously fabulous food scene? Well there is one way to efficiently tick off a few of our wonderful independents in one fell swoop… The Bristol Food Tour. I had the absolute pleasure of trying out the new East to West tour with some fellow…

Felson’s Cocktail Lounge and Stick Bar – getting sporty(ish)

I was met with a lot of confused looks when the story of my bank holiday weekend included playing pool. I tend to avoid anything remotely related to sport – and have been mostly successful in avoiding since childhood. Alcohol does however seem to bring out some secret skills – Beer pong in particular brings…

Dine With I – the roast edition

If you’re not heading to your mum’s for Sunday roast, where should you go? Perhaps somewhere you would least expect… Frankie Loves Ava on Wells Road houses an abundance of upcycled furniture and unique gifts. It’s a treasure trove that you can get lost in for a while. Hidden downstairs though is a cosy and…

Honest Burgers: MEAT & POTATOES

Honest Burgers have arrived in Bristol and are making efforts to make some Bristolian friends. Lovely! With over 20 sites and their own butchers, they have come a long way from their Brixton beginnings where they used to cycle an eight mile round trip to get the perfect beef. They have however kept their honest…
