Bristol – Things to eat and drink!

If you didn’t know, I spent NYE in Bristol with friends and I wrote a little post on it here with all the sightseeing/activities we got up to. Now I wanted to write about some of the places we wined and dined at as Bristol has some amazing food.

For New Years Eve we went to Thali and had a feast of Indian delight. They started off as a food truck and have now branched out to several locations across the city. Surprisingly we managed to get a reservation the morning of and were pretty stoked about that. The atmosphere was great with some popular songs remixed Bollywood style in the background. We shared poppadoms with different chutneys and then I went for the Chicken Tikka grill (chicken marinated in ginger, lemons and spices) with naan, pomegranate raita, salad, mooli salad and keralan thoran (a cabbage, carrot curry). It was absolutely incredible and everyone else enjoyed their meals too! It isn’t your typical ‘British Indian’ but definitely more authentic and made with love.


This next stop was for brunch and we hit up the Boston Tea Party. Again they have several locations and felt a little ‘chainy’ but the food came highly recommended. Below you can see the mushroom and roasted tomato bap, sweetcorn hash (with poached eggs and halloumi) and the west country breakfast. Being in the UK and it being a holiday I had to go for the fry-up as it’s a staple. The roasted new potatoes were the bomb dot com and after being slightly hungover it all hit the spot. The decor is very pinterest with wooden tables and warehouse style furniture.



The last stop I’ll talk about is Poco and again another brunch option (if you’re on holiday of course you’re not going to wake up in time for breakfast). Differing to the others it’s very independent and their only location (bar touring for festivals). They are very aware of their impact on the environment and therefore source the majority of their ingredients from the UK. Most are organic and they have a board in the back featuring what farms everything was gathered from. Normally it’s a tapas cafe with lots of dishes to share but I went for the moorish scramble with chorzio, eggs, harissa beans, buttered greens and potatoes. It was possibly the most delicious meal I’ve ever had but that could be because I was absolutely starving before it came out. The service was fantastic and I can’t recommend it enough.



All of these locations are in the Strokes Croft area which has lots of art, shops and cafes. We also ate at the Bristolian and Cafe Kino, both really lovely places to check out!
