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…

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…

An Ode To Wings Diner

I have a problem…it’s accidental fried chicken I’m at Small Bar for a drink and those cravings kick in. Juicy double-fried chicken for the perfect crunch You haven’t lived until you’ve had Wings Diner for lunch. Wings, burgers or jackfruit might be what you feel But I need me a two-piece ten pound meal deal….

Thatchers Cider: Food and Cider matching at Pasture

I have a confession to make…even though I am a born and bred Bristolian, I am much more likely to be found with a glass of wine or gin in my hand than a cider.  I was all ready to start thinking differently about this apple based beverage though when invited to a food and…

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…

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,…

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…

Root: Celebrating the mighty vegetable

We live in a time when change is constant. People change locations, diet plans, jobs. I have therefore stayed in my job for a relatively long time. The reason? The people! I am lucky to work with some incredibly talented, inspirational people including some pretty fabulous women. I have met a lot of my favourite…
