10 Best Places to Eat in Bristol


Bristol is full of places to eat and drink – from independent cafes to swanky cocktail bars to vegan burger bars to waterside eateries – the city has something for pretty much everyone.

Having lived in Bristol my whole life, I have a good idea of where’s best to grab a bite to eat . So, I’ve put together a list of some of my fave places…


Flour & Ash

By far my absolute fave place to eat in Bristol!!! The pizzas are to die for…

The sourdoughs pizza are made to order in a wood fired oven and wow – they just taste amazing. You can choose from a list of pizzas topped with seasonal ingredients and make sure to try the truffle Parmesan polenta chips.

Where is it?

Gloucester Road, just after The Arches



Koocha is a little vegan deli at the bottom of a residential street just off Gloucester Road.

Choose between either a load of delish vegan sharing plates – Persian style. Or, if you fancy a larger dish then make sure to give their dirty fries ago!

Where is it?

Zetland Road – just off of Gloucester Road



Tucked away in a little pedestrianised street in Clifton Village, Saffron dishes up some lovely Mediterranean tapas, a selection of sandwiches and a load of brunchy dishes.

This place is such a nice spot to visit when the sun is shining, as you can sit out in the street.

Souk Kitchen

Another one of my absolute faves – Souk Kitchen is a chilled out restaurant serving up Eastern Mediterranean and North African dishes.

This is the perfect spot to head with a group of people and share a selection of items off the mezze menu – the flatbread and hummus is amaze. Make sure to book a table here, as it gets pretty busy on an evening.

Where is it?

There are 2 – one is just off Whiteladies Road and one is on North Street


Earth Cake

Did someone say Vegan afternoon tea?!

The afternoon tea at Earth Cake is worth trying – even if you’re not vegan (I didn’t notice the difference honestly), the food they serve up is delish!

You have to book online if you want afternoon tea, if not you can just pop in for coffee and cake.

Where is it?

North Street, Southville


The Florist

Cocktail heaven!! This is a chain, so you’ve probs heard of The Florist or The Botanist before…but I’ve added it to the list because the cocktails are lovely and the interior is beautiful.

And yes, there are neon lights – so Instagram photo ready!

Make sure to try out the hanging kebab and chips with garlic oil – yum!

Where is it?

Park Street


Salt and Malt

I had to put a fish and chip shop on here, as what better place to grab a takeaway than by the harbour.

Salt Malt is a bit more of a boujee fish and chips – you can takeaway, but if you fancy, you can also sit in.

Where is it?

Wapping Wharf – near the harbour


Mrs Potts Chocolate House

A chocolate lovers paradise…Serving up a selection of chocolate deserts, cakes and ice cream, this cafe is ideal if you’re craving something super sweet.

There hot chocolates are lush – they melt proper thick chocolate!

Where is it?

Park Street


Little Victories

The interior of this cafe is beautiful – very instagrammable!

Head here if you’re in the mood for coffee and cake! Their cinnamon tray bake and chai lattes are lush!

Where is it?

Wapping Wharf – by the harbour


ANNA Cake Couture

This place looks super fancy and isn’t obvious that you can actually go inside and sit down – but there is actually a little cafe area out the back where you can sit and watch he cake makers.

After a day of strolling around Clifton Village, this is the ideal spot to come and grab a fancy cake and sit in the warm.

    Nice! I’ve never tried Little Victories, I’ll have to pop in for a coffee sometime 🙂. I love Pizzarova, Honest Burger, Salt and Malt for meals out! Oh and there’s a lovely little coffee spot called Blind Owl close to Temple Meads which does the BEST croissants. (Might be biased cos it’s my friend who makes the coffee there 😉).
