The OFM 50 Everything we love in the world of food right now

Bristol’s drinks scene is big. We have craft beer, micro-distilleries and a lot of cider. The Observer Food Magazine gave a shout out to Bristol’s wine and cocktail bars for being the home of some award winning Bristolians.

From mushy peas to exotic quinoa, UK shoppers are full of beans… and pulses

The British Dal Festival, running from the 19th – 25th March around Bristol, has been circled on our calendar for a while now and it seems The Guardian are excited about it too! They’ve written an article dedicated to the upcoming festivities that will pay homage to the magic and variety of the humble split pea.

Acclaimed food critic Jay Rayner recorded a video in collaboration with The Guild Of Fine Food about why Bristol’s food scene stands out. Our independent culture means smaller restaurants thrive here and there’s always something new to try.

The World’s Best Cities 2018

Best Cities included Bristol in the World’s Best Cities 2018. Bristol is fiercely independent and proud of it, and Best Cities made sure to mention our diversity in culture, politics, music and art when ranking us as one of the top 100 cities.

48 Hours in: Bristol

A weekend is never long enough in Bristol and the folks over at Weekendr agree! Their reporter spent 48 hours in the city, beginning at the creative epicentre that is Stokes Croft and taking a stroll through Clifton Village up towards the Clifton Suspension Bridge. They spent two nights at Brooks Guesthouse, perfectly located by St Nicks Market, which included one night in a caravan on the roof of the building!

A Taste of Bristol: Eat Walk Talk Bristol Food Tours

If you’re coming to Bristol to eat, why not try going on one of the EatWalkTalk Bristol Food Tours? Passion for Hospitality talks us through the tour she went on through the city, which focuses on the best of Bristol’s food scene. Beginning at Hart’s Bakery underneath Temple Meads train station, they worked their way through the array of food on offer at CARGO in Wapping Wharf, up Park Street, back down to St Nicks Market and finally finished their tour at Belgian beer bar The Strawberry Thief. Sounds like the ideal day to us!
