Papadeli Cookery School: Review

I was very excited to receive an email last week, inviting me to join a cookery lesson at the newly opened Cookery School at Alma Road’s Papadeli. My class was with Papa himself, who was to spend the evening teaching me and four others how to make a range of salads and casseroles… Subscribe to […]

The Mall, Clifton Village: Food Review

Signing up to mailing lists is definitely the way forward. Last week saw an email from The Mall pub in Clifton winging its way over, announcing that they were offering a limited number of complimentary meals for two. Why? Well, they’ve recently relaunched their menu and want customer feedback. It would have been rude not […]

Brace & Browns, Whiteladies Road: Review

So…after weeks of teasing, the kitchen at Brace & Browns Bar & Kitchen at 43 Whiteladies Road is finally open! The small regular menu, well-priced specials list and apparently great Sunday roasts are incentive enough to head over there…but if you’re planning a visit, I’d definitely recommend that you try the tapas menu… Subscribe to Bristol Bites […]


The Devilled Egg Kitchen Academy: Review

Another meal out for me a few weeks back…but one with a bit of a difference. I entered a mailing list competition from The Devilled Egg Kitchen Academy, and was very surprised to find out that I’d won! The prize? A free cookery class with Barbora, where I and six others were taught how to […]


Local Spotlight: Winstones Ice Cream (and Ben’s new book!)

Although they may not be based in Bristol (they’re actually just outside Stroud), family-run Winstones Ice Cream are the subject of this latest Local Spotlight post. Their products *are* stocked in Bristol, as you’ll find out later on, but it’s the ethos and history of the company that appeal to me. I had a chat […]

Caffe Sazz, North Street: Review

As Turkish is one of my favourite types of cuisine, and with the restaurant already having been recommended to me, buying a voucher for North Street’s Caffe Sazz when the voucher appeared on Groupon was a no-brainer. “A thirteen-dish mezze taster menu for two plus two cocktails or soft drinks, Turkish dessert and coffee or […]

Kiln Restaurant @ Ramada Bristol City Hotel: Review

Trying to balance an attempt at budgeting with a desire to eat out at places that I’ve not yet tried is proving to be tricky. Luckily, however, sites such as Vouchercloud are at hand to make nights out cheaper! After spotting a “2 for 1 on mains” voucher the other night, we decided to try […]


Byzantium, Bristol: Review

Another of my Living Social vouchers used up last weekend, this time at Byzantium, opposite St Mary Redcliffe Church. I’d heard mixed reviews of the place, from “it used to be great 10 years ago” to “we had a great Christmas party there”, so I was keen to try it out for myself… Subscribe to […]

Chin! Chin! Bar & Kitchen: Review

Wednesday nights, for me and an ever-increasing group of friends, are pub quiz nights at The Scotchman And His Pack on St Michaels Hill. The starting time of 8.45pm means plenty of time to grab a quick bite to eat pre-quiz, and this week we opted to head up the hill to the Chin! Chin! […]


The Botanist, Clifton: Review

When The Botanist’s website appeared a few months back, offering free menu tastings pre-launch, I (plus a lot of friends and people I’m following on Twitter!) jumped at the chance! With a very comprehensive menu and a lot of self-promotion on Twitter, we were keen to see what the place was like… Subscribe to Bristol […]
