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 […]

Bar Humbug, Whiteladies Road: Review

After an early evening visit to Whitelock and Grace for cocktails last weekend, a friend and I were on the lookout for a quick, cheap and tasty meal before meeting friends in town. A wander down Whiteladies Road led us to Bar Humbug, where the offer of a main course for £6 (plus outdoor seating […]

The Runcible Spoon, Stokes Croft, Bristol: Review

Friday night saw the launch of another new restaurant in Bristol: Stokes Croft’s The Runcible Spoon. Situated on the old Cafe Kino site on Ninetree Hill, the restaurant aims to serve “affordable, high quality Modern British food”. We headed down there on opening night to check it out… Subscribe to Bristol Bites by Email  

Marco Pierre White Steakhouse: Review

A company away day at the Doubletree Hilton a few weeks back proved to be the perfect opportunity to sample the Marco Pierre White Steakhouse situated inside the hotel. With a group of around 30 people dining together you’re never going to come to a consensus about the evening, but I think the general feeling […]


The Burger Joint, Cotham Hill: Review

Another meal out with a fantastic voucher from Groupon: 2 burgers and 2 sides at Cotham Hill’s The Burger Joint for only £6.75 (RRP £15). I’d heard that the venue was pretty small (and the voucher wasn’t available on takeaway) so I phoned ahead to check the least busy times….and we ended up heading up […]
