A week in Copenhagen

Copenhagen has always been on my list of places to go, least of all because it’s one of the most Instagrammable cities in Europe. This is always a plus point in my books, it’s sad but true. With beautiful architecture, a renowned food scene and hundreds of coffee shops dotted about the city it’s of…

Veganuary at Swoon, 31 College Green

The Intro. Since the turn of the month, the vegan life has been on the brain for a lot of people. Namely, Veganuary. For a whole month, you dedicate yourself to a plant-based diet – no meat, no dairy, no avo and eggs in the morning. It can be tough but a lot of people…

No.1 Harbourside, 1 Canon’s Road

No.1 Harbourside has always held sweet memories for me. Back when I used to catch a train from Bath every weekend to get my weekly dose of Bristol before I moved over, No.1 Harbourside was a popular go to. A great spot for meeting friends, catching up on some work or getting ma groove on…

Yakinori, 78 Park Street

We’re taking a trip to Japan this week with a blog post all about Yakinori. Sister company to Woktastic based in Birmingham, Yakinori offer a substantial menu that features pretty much every Japanese fancy you could wish for from ramen to donburi. Last week, we popped by to check them out. Yakinori is well placed…

Franco Manca, 20 Clare Street

Bristol aren’t short of pizzerias. If you start counting them up, there are quite a few. It’s not a case of quality vs quantity either – they’re all pretty decent. But do we have a pizzeria on Clare Street? No we do not. Enter Franco Manca to fill the void. With joints in London and…

Sub/Dunk, Kongs, 13-15 King Street

If you’ve been to Kongs in the last few months you may have noticed some new guys on the block, Sub/Dunk. Proper “dude food” the menu compliments Kongs pub/bar vibe perfectly. From mac & cheese balls to substantially battered rings, the menu is geared up to line your stomach for a heavy night or simply, to…

The 5 roast round up to Chrismas

You can’t do monogamy when it comes to Bristol’s food scene. It’s literally impossible. It’s like being a kid in a candy shop, wanting a little bit of everything. And why shouldn’t you? If you want to make yourself a marshmallow, skittles and double decker sandwich you do that my friend, and be merry! After…

Her Majesty’s Secret Service (HMSS),

Few can turn up their nose at a Friday pint, less so a cocktail. Yet when it comes to picking a bar, many can feel like a deer in the headlights. Why? Because there’s so much damn choice! Not that we’re complaining but it can be hard to know where to begin. Chances are if…

The Square Kitchen, 15 Berkeley Square

The Square strives to deliver first class service in a stylish setting. With a hotel shared reception and “members only” bar downstairs, The Square has an aura of exclusivity to it but they’re keen to start moving away from this perception when it comes to their restaurant area, The Square Kitchen.

Buttermilk and Maple, 5-7 Welsh Back

Buttermilk and Maple, situated below the Mercure hotel on Welsh Back, opened in August this year. Dapper and sophisticated from the offset, the decor is tasteful and put together in a way that makes every corner and crevice “Instagrammable” from the framed art on the walls to the random slogans skirting the ceilings. A large…

Miller Green,Cotham

We’re changing things up this week and steering away from the meat heavy meals with a veggie review!

The Mercure Bristol Grand Hotel, Broad Street

All too often, it can be a right pain finding your hotel, particularly if you’re in a new city. Thankfully, finding the Mercure Bristol Grand Hotel was a breeze, a fifteen minute walk away from Bristol Temple Meads station and slap bang in the heart of the city. In fact, the building itself has been…
