Father's Day 2019 is on Sunday 16th June, and we've got plenty of suggestions for ways to treat your dad, from days out to free beer!

Days out

Dads get free entry and a free lunch at Berkeley Castle on Father's Day! Not only is this magnificent castle and gardens a great spot for a family day trip, but his majesty Henry VIII & his six wives have also been invited to make sure your Dad gets the welcome he deserves!

If you have the whole family in tow, dads get in for £1 this Father’s Day at Avon Valley Wildlife & Adventure Park when accompanying a full paying child - that includes Grandads and Great Grandads so bring them all along! Noah's Ark Zoo Farm are also offering a free bacon bap included with their entry plus the the opportunity to feed the Giraffes.

For the sports fans, Ashton Gate Stadium are offering a drink on arrival, two-course carvery and stadium tour for all guests on Father's Day - booking is essential.

Adrenaline junkie dads can head to The Grand Pier at Weston-Super-Mare on Father’s Day to show off their driving skills on the indoor Go-Kart track and get free entry when accompanied by one paying child or adult.

Or if you think he's earned a night off, treat your dad to a night of comedy from Nish Kumar, Laura Lexx, Kiri Pritchard-McLean, Mark Olver and lots more!

Or maybe your dad wants to learn something new? How about a chocolate making class at The Chocolate Tart, where he can create some chocolate delights to enjoy later at home! 

Food and drink

Prince Street Social are celebrating Father's Day with a twist on the classic afternoon treat: Crafternoon Tea! Instead of cucumber sandwiches and mini cakes, you can expect hearty sausage rolls, scotch eggs and stout cake alongside locally brewed beer from Moor Beer. They'll even give you some to take away!

If you're looking for an extra special treat, visit Riverstation's Pontoon bar as they team up with Moor Beer from 2-4pm on Father's Day. You'll get a pint of Moor Beer on arrival to enjoy with a selection of bar snacks such as pork pies, homemade scotch eggs. At £20 per person, this will be a real treat, plus you'll get a little gift for your dad to take home.  

Citywide food festival Bristol Food Connections has a range of events going on throughout Father's Day, including a samosa masterclass, Malaysian afternoon tea, a cider orchard tour, whisky tasting and a South American fiesta, through to a huge food market, foodie talks and free cookery demos at Colston Hall. 

For nautically-minded dads, you can enjoy a relaxing Fish & Chip dinner on The Matthew as she sails around Bristol's historic harbour, or book a Sunday Riverside Roast trip to Beese's Riverside Bar with Bristol Ferry.

Many restaurants are also running a special Father's Day menu, including Browns,who are offering the choice of a chateaubriand to share for £49.95, a 12oz porterhouse steak, or a traditional Sunday roast. You can also book on to special three-course Sunday lunches at the beautiful Thornbury CastleThe Shelburne Restaurant at Bowood Hotel, The Square Kitchen and Chophouse Bar & Restaurant.

Or if you're not in the mood for a roast, head to The Coconut Tree on Father’s Day where anytime from midday until 9pm your dad can choose any 3 dishes from the menu for free, or Las Iguanas in Cribbs Causeway or Harbourside, where dads get a free bottle of beer with any main!

Gifts

Want to put a smile on your dad's face with a thoughtful gift?

Gift cards are available for many Bristol attractions, including Aerospace Bristol who offer the option to make it extra special by including a special card of Concorde Alpha Foxtrot over Clifton Suspension Bridge on her last ever flight when you select home delivery. Order by 6th June to ensure delivery by 16th June.

Bristol Hoppers are offering 10% off all gift vouchers until 16th June, so that dad can choose which all-inclusive craft beer tour he prefers. There's also 10% off all of June's sociable group tours, so if you know when dad's free you can book him straight onto a tour. 

Still not sure what to get him? Take a look at the Bristol-themed gifts in our online shop, from historic books to prints of local artwork.
