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 […]

“Underwhelmed” is the word that I think many of our table of 6 would use to describe our experiences at the Harvey Nichols Second Floor Restaurant last night… Subscribe to Bristol Bites by Email

The Muset By Ronnie: Review

  “I thought that if I can get a business working in a relatively rural setting such as Thornbury, imagine what we can do in a thriving city hub like Clifton”, says ex-Anton Mosimann chef Ron Faulkner. Having run Ronnie’s with a great deal of success in Thornbury for the past four years, Faulkner has […]


Local Spotlight: La Dame Gateau

“I love making cupcakes as you can personalise each one to suit the client”, says Erica O’Connor of La Dame Gâteau Limited, when asked which product she enjoys baking the most. And the love that goes into the cupcakes and other products made by this relatively new company is clear… Subscribe to Bristol Bites by Email […]

Goldbrick House, Park Street: Review

I’ve been in Bristol since August 2009, and every working day since then, I’ve passed Goldbrick House on my way to and from work. Despite that – and despite several recommendations – I still hadn’t made it in for food (but have visited for drinks) until last week, when a friend booked us in for […]

The Sportsman, Seasalter, Whitstable

“Whitstable?”, I hear you ask. “Isn’t that in Kent? What’s a Bristol blogger doing writing about a restaurant in KENT?” The answer’s simple. It’s the best dining out experience I’ve ever had, and I can’t think of a single thing to criticise. The trip came about after chatting to a fellow food blogger, who had […]

Bell’s Diner, Montpelier – Review

“Inventive cooking at full throttle” is how the 2011 Good Food Guide describes Chris Wicks’ Bell’s Diner, and a “highly idiosyncratic restaurant”. The word “idiosyncratic”, on reflection, sums up the evening perfectly for me… Subscribe to Bristol Bites by Email
