The Hatchet Inn

I am always at The Hatchet – it’s my all-time favourite pub in Bristol, which also happens to be the oldest in the city. I love the history, the Tudor-style building, the music and the awesome beer garden.

The Clockwork Rose

One of the coolest and quirkiest cocktail bars in the city centre, serving up spectacular drink creations. The bar has a range of unusual hats for you to try on, getting you to embrace the steampunk theme.

Caribbean Croft

Come here for the incredible wholesome Caribbean cuisine, served up in massive portions at reasonable prices with a lively atmosphere. I always leave so satisfied!

Spitfire BBQ

Spitfire serves the tastiest meat dishes, from spitfire BBQ chicken to unbelievably massive pork belly ribs. The restaurant is situated on the picturesque harbourside with lots of outdoor seating.

La Campagnuola

I adore this family-run romantic Italian on Zetland Road, where they use fresh ingredients to create authentic Sicilian cuisine. The food is delicious, and the pizzas are huge.


Without a doubt the best burger I’ve ever had was at Squeezed. The restaurant in Wapping Wharf might be tiny but is sure to leave a lasting impression.
