Searching For Food & Drink...
You won't need to spend long in Bristol before you experience exceptionally good, hearty, local food and drink. Yes, you will find the all the family-favourite/orientated, high street classics (Cabot Circus or Millenium Square is a good starting point) but Bristol is fiercely proud of its independent restaurants, bars and cafes that serve the finest local produce.
You will be spoilt for choice when it comes to finding somewhere to re-energise as you explore Bristol. From the conventional to the eccentric, from rustic to award winning, we know you will find something to tantalise those taste buds. We challenge you to walk around St Nicholas Market without being tempted by the delicious street food smells wafting through the alleyways.
Bristol's eclectic mix of cultures are reflected in the food choices in the different quarters of the city. Head to St Mark's Road in Easton for rustic Middle Eastern and Asian cuisine, to Clifton for true British quality or Park Street and the Triangle for some of the best burgers in the land.
Welsh back is buzzing day and night as people gather to enjoy locally-produced beer and cider on a boat in the harbour or cross into King Street to join the conversation outside on the cobbled stones to a background of jazz music.
Bristolians are also deeply passionate about food and drink. Come and join us at one of the many food events throughout the year and experience for yourself what makes Bristol sizzle.
