This week's #FoodFriday features fan-tache-tic foodie favourites from a man with one of the city's most famous beards, Jimmy Ladgrove.

You can see Jimmy shave off his epic beard for charity at the Movember Charity Quiz on Sunday 25th November.

King Street Brew House

Being a craft beer lover, KSBH has been my favourite place to drink and hangout since it opened back in 2016. Home to a microbrewery, 80% of the vast beer selection is brewed on site. On the street level you can watch the sun set over the gorgeous cobblestones of  historic King Street. I’d recommend a pint of White Trash IPA.

Prince Street Social

For delicious food and drinks served in a modern, stylish and dog-friendly venue, look no further than PSS. Situated next to Bristols’s vibrant harbourside, PSS has a great range of cocktails with a 241 happy hour. I’d recommend their brunch, go bottomless if that's your thing.

Chilli Daddy

A favourite of mine since relocating to Bristol 4 years ago. For delicious & reasonably priced street style Spicy Sichuan food look no further. With 4 restaurants in the city you’re sure to find a chilli daddy near you. I recommend the Paojiao Fish Hotpot & Rice meal. You choose your spice between 1-5 with 5 bringing you tears of joy. Go for level 5 if you dare.

The Green Man

If craft beer isn’t your thing, look no further than my local, The Green Man. With a variety of 40 gins on offer and a great selection of rotating guest ales, The Green Man, tucked away in cosy Clifton has a friendly welcoming vibe with a lot of charm. I’d go for a Gin and Elderflower tonic. 

The Bank Tavern

Tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the city centre is The Bank Tavern, where it has stood since the 1800’s. Although it was recently crowned Bristol’s best Sunday lunch at The Bristol Good Food Awards 2018, it prides itself on not taking itself too seriously. I like their selection of ciders and outdoor area. 

The Old Bookshop

One of the first bars I went to in Bristol amd it was love at first sight. An old favourite of mine, it's home to some of the most intimate gigs you’ll find in Bristol. Full of character and great service. I’d recommend a Sunday sesh here.
