Cheap and Cheerful!


The Canteen


The Canteen offers reasonably priced food and free live music every night ranging from jazz to folk to world pop.  Mains start at £5 and also come with free tasty soup and crusty bread! What's not to love?!



Sticks and Broth


This Japanese ramen bar produces some of the best Pan-Asian cuisine in Bristol. The £6.50 Tokyo Express menu gives you the option of ramen or donburi (rice bowl) without blowing your overdraft.




This city centre cafe sells the biggest sandwiches in Bristol: by a country mile. All you need to do is choose your preferred meat and then five salads to cram into your bap. And the selection is pretty impressive; potato salad, pasta salad, sauerkraut, hard boiled eggs, and onion bhajis. Best bit is, all that food will cost you £3.80!


Best for brunch


The Bristolian


Set just off Stokes Croft, this ethically-conscious cafe offers vegan, vegetarian and free range meaty brunch. You can enjoy your healthy meal on the cafe’s sunny terrace away from the hustle of the city centre.







This Italian restaurant/cafe has won a number of awards for its fresh and delicious food. It’s situated just a stone's throw from Bristol SU on a pretty Clifton street so it's definitely a place to bring your relatives when they come to visit!








Hart’s Bakery

A well-hidden artisan bakery who make their own sourdough bread, handmade pastries and seasonal cakes right in front of you. The perfect place to stop for a quick bite if you’re on the way to Bristol Temple Meads station as you’ll find the bakery in a large Victoria railway arch just next to the station.


Restaurants for a special occasion


The Lido


The Clifton lido is one of the oldest surviving lidos in the UK. With a poolside restaurant you can easily feel like you’re eating in the Mediterranean on a summer’s day. They also offer swim and eat packages if you fancy a dip in the heated pool and hot tub.












The Ivy


Known for its glamorous West End restaurant loved by numerous celebrities- the well-known brand opened in Bristol last summer. And with mains ranging from £10-20 it’s not as pricy as you might imagine!


Bells Dinner


One of Bristol’s most iconic restaurants set in the Bohemian streets of Montpellier, this restaurant has won a host of awards for its fusion of different cuisines and use of fresh ingredients.
