Harveys Cellars: Tapas with a creole twist…

Tapas and small dishes are taking over in a big way at the moment. No longer shall we be satisfied with just one choice of meal. No no. We would like our choices to be small, varied and plentiful pretty please with sugar on top. For an indecisive Pisces like me (for anyone about to rant about…

Brewdog: Learning about beer…

Located just around the corner from work (Queen Square is dangerous for the amount of nearby temptations) Brewdog has become a little bit of a regular haunt.  It’s also a big fav of my surprisingly beer-loving flatmate, so when news came of their beer tasting evenings with meat and cheese platter it was the perfect pressie for her…

Milk Thistle: A venue for the discerning drinker…

As a belated celebration of a lovely friend of mine I have finally sampled the deliciousness that is the Milk Thistle – which I am sure will now become a bit of a favourite haunt for me. The ‘big brother’ of Hyde & Co in Berkley Square, this bar of four floors on the centre…

The Apple: Ciderrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr…

For all fellow cider lovers (is it not a prerequisite for anyone from the South West?) you must have visited The Apple on the Welshback. Surely? If not go. Go now! Half boat/half cider bar, The Apple is far too temptingly close to my place of work. Selling a vast array of ciders (and other…

Browns: My ever-faithful…

I’m sure everyone has a place where they inevitably end up going if they do not have any new plans. For me, this is Browns. Sat most conveniently on the triangle, the spectacular steps entice me up most summer evenings to grab a quick drink (most likely ending up as a full evening event) on…

Give me More(ish)….

It takes me out of the safety net of Clifton but it’s so lovely it is worth it. Head on to Chandos Road (Redland) and you find a delightful little place called Moreish. This originally became a place for brunch as a close friend has a hatred for eggs (I know – it’s odd) and…

The Lanes: A dancefloor, a bar….and bowling lanes?

Yes the title is correct. After hearing a lot about The Lanes in the centre, last night I finally got the opportunity to properly experience it. AND I LOVED IT. Now it should be noted I was in a certain state of merriment after an early night of comedy with my very entertaining work colleagues,…

The Botanist: Reminiscing about Summer….

I am of course not discounting this place from a winter visit, however this year my summer was all about frequenting The Botanist. Some of you who have not visited Bristol for a while may have known this place as Ha! Ha! Bar. Things have changed. With light walls, strategic flower placement and quirky named…

Goldbrick House: My second living room…

For any of the many walking commuters that, like me, struggle up and down Park Street every day to work you must understand my constant temptation into the embellished wonderland of Goldbrick House. With the beautiful wallpaper, a collection of random pictures scattered around the walls and, of course, the gold ceiling, I can easily…

The Urban Wood: Somewhat hidden – worth seeking out…

I am currently trawling through my eating memories to build up a few posts and could not continue without talking about a favourite little restaurant/bar of mine – The Urban Wood (some may it as the previously names Wild Wood). Set slightly out of the way of the usual Bristol haunts on Colston Street, I…
