Fans of street art flock to Bristol to catch the latest creations from Banksy et al. Something of an undiscovered cultural gem, there’s a lot more to the city, with restaurants in Bristol representing a stunning range of world cuisines, elegant gourmet destinations, and specialist vegetarian and organic venues.
For gourmet options in a smart yet welcoming venue make your way up the hill to The Square, which is something really unique amongst Bristol restaurants. Attached to Bristol’s only private members’ club, the Berkeley Square art hotel sits upstairs, and the art-themed decor extends downstairs to the restaurant, which features original paintings and quirky vintage items. Menus change with the season, and include an eclectic mix of British and French-inspired dishes, like risotto of girolles, chervil & crème fraiche, and Battenberg of ham hock, confit duck & foie gras, with piccalilli & apricot.
For tempting Thai flavours in an elegant waterside setting, Thai Edge is a central venue, offering fresh and delicious favourites like soups, noodles, curries and fish dishes. Thai Edge is just a hop, skip and a jump from Bristol Hippodrome theatre, and offers an affordable pre-theatre menu.
