The Urban Wood: Review

A new choice of venue for this week’s pre-pub quiz meal, this time bar and restaurant The Urban Wood on Colston Street. Formerly known as The Wild Wood, this two room venue saw a change of name at the back end of 2010. ‘We are completely independent, stock interesting beers & wines, make tasty traditional […]

Racks Bar & Kitchen: Review

I’ve been meaning to try the food at Racks Bar & Kitchen for a while – partly because the pies have been recommended to me by a few people, and partly because I’ve had some lovely chats with them via Twitter. Even better, there’s an offer on Vouchercloud for 2 for 1 main courses (cheapest […]

Robin Hood’s Retreat: Review

The realisation dawned on me that I still had a Travelzoo voucher from March for the Robin Hood’s Retreat on a Monday afternoon, when I wasn’t particularly looking forward to a it’s-nearly-payday-but-not-quite meal of soup or pasta. Cue a 5pm phone call to the pub, the securing of a table for two and the agreement […]

Tampopo: Review

Looking for somewhere to get a cheap bite to eat before our Friday night visit to the Bristol Cider House, we remembered the voucher that we had for 40% off main courses at Tampopo in Cabot Circus (you can print off a copy here) and decided to take advantage of the fact that it was […]

La Riva Italian Restaurant & Bar: Review

Another Italian restaurant for Park Street has sprung up in July 2011, only a stone’s throw away from the neighbouring ASK, Vincenzo’s and Jamie’s Italian. With a previous successful restaurant in Clacton-on-Sea, Essex, the owners of La Riva have now transferred their attention to Bristol, and we decided to head down to take advantage to […]

Namaste Nepal: Review

Another newish venue for us this week, this time Namaste Nepal – a new Nepalese and Indian restaurant on Frogmore Street. We’d already eyed up the menu online and had some chats with the very friendly Sunny via Twitter, so we were pretty optimistic about our meal… Subscribe to Bristol Bites by Email  


No. 1 Harbourside: Review

A Monday lunchtime catch up with the lovely Erica from La Dame Gateau called for a venue that was close to the bottom of Park Street…damn the constraints of one hour lunch breaks! The decision was easy in the end: I’d heard great things about No. 1 Harbourside but hadn’t yet eaten there. This was […]

Thai Edge, Broad Quay: Review

Courteous service, lovely food, a great atmosphere and an absolute bargain of an early evening menu.

Bauhinia, Clifton Village: Review

When tasked with looking for a cheapish, relaxed restaurant in Clifton to catch up with a friend over an early evening weekday dinner, Bauhinia seemed like a good option. There were three key reasons for the choice: it had been recommended by friends and colleagues, it’s somewhere I’d not been before, and it offers an […]

Berwick Lodge: Review

When I first moved to Bristol, there were three restaurants in the city that I was told that I must visit. With Bell’s Diner and Casamia both ticked off my list, six of us finally got round to booking ourselves in for dinner at Berwick Lodge, using Living Social vouchers for the eight course tasting […]
