Bristol's vibrant food & drink scene has something to offer any taste or mood; whether it's locally-made cider and pies from the market, a Michelin-starred dinner in a cosy pub, or Indian snacks in a converted shipping container at the Wapping Wharf.

Together with UWE Bristol we've developed a 360 video to give you a taste of what you can expect from eating out in Bristol. Take a look around the bars, restaurants and cafes that make Bristol so special - and prepare to feel hungry!

Fancy a lunch with a view? Then the Café at Clifton Observatory is the place to go, where you can enjoy your sandwich with a picture-perfect view over Brunel’s famous Clifton Suspension Bridge.

For a cosy yet lively atmosphere head to Mud Dock for lunch, or the cool, urban oasis of Lido Bristol - a restaurant tucked between Georgian terraces overlooking an outdoor heated pool.
