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 […]

Adventures with black garlic…

Those of you who watch Masterchef may have seen contestant Tim cooking a dish involving black garlic at New York restaurant wd-50 in the second stage of the competition’s finals. After posting a link to an article about the arrival of black garlic in the UK a few months back, the PR agency for Black […]


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! […]


Hooters, Bristol: Review

Opinions of Hooters tend to fall pretty much into four categories. “It’s degrading to women”. “It’s tacky”. “The food’s awful”. “It’s over-priced”. To be honest, I’d be inclined to agree with most of those – but can still see the appeal of the place for certain situations… Subscribe to Bristol Bites by Email  

Jamie’s Italian, Bristol: Review

Multiple birthdays within the space of two weeks for our team at work meant a celebratory lunch last Friday, and a chance, finally, to sample the much-talked about Jamie’s Italian for the first time. After reading both positive and negative reviews from other diners, I wasn’t quite sure what to expect – but our meal […]
