This week's #FoodFriday comes from Bristol-dweller Claire Greville, a freelance social media manager, family blogger at This City Mum and mum to two energetic kids. Here are her favourite places to eat out in the city:

The Pickle Café at Underfall Yard

This is my favourite place to stop and sit for a break whilst walking around the Harbourside. They make a great hot chocolate and their carrot cake is to die for! The views of the harbour from the outside tables are stunning too.

Boston Tea Party

BTP is a long-standing family favourite and my go-to place for a great veggie breakfast or brunch. My current top choice is the Cheddar & Jalapeno Cornbread, and I think my kids are addicted to the white chocolate milkshakes there!

Souk Kitchen

This busy restaurant is a consistent favourite on North Street. It serves a fantastic vegetarian mezze, and the flavours really have to be tasted to be believed. I’m definitely due another visit very soon.

Under the Stars

When you live in Bristol it’s almost compulsory to eat on a boat, and this one is a gem. It’s got such a cosy, welcoming feel to it, and sharing their veggie tapas dishes whilst overlooking the harbour is one of my favourite lunchtime dates.

Eat a Pitta

I love good falafel and hummus, and these guys make some of the best in the city, right in the heart of St Nick’s Market. Don’t be put off by the lunchtime queues – it’s totally worth the wait and you’ll end up with one of the biggest and best pitta breads you’ve ever eaten.

Coronation Curry House

The best Indian restaurant in the south of the city in my opinion (and I’ve tried a few!) Crispy poppadoms, tasty naan bread, and a great choice of vegetarian curries mean this is a regular weekend haunt.
