When it comes to food, Bristol has it covered– in fact, you’re spoilt for choice. The city is a thriving hub of independent delis, grocery stores, cafés, restaurants, pubs, specialist bars and food festivals. Basically, if you are a self-confessed foodie, Bristol is the place to be.
The city was given the auspicious title of European Green Capital in 2015, an honour which recognises the dedication the city and its citizens take in achieving – and continue to achieve – a more healthy and sustainable future. This ethos is reflected in Bristol’s booming food scene, with countless eateries and drinking establishments dedicating themselves to the finest quality fresh, local and seasonal produce the South West has to offer. This philosophy is also evident in Bristol’s well-established and prosperous vegetarian and vegan food culture, with many cafés and restaurants solely devoting themselves to offering their customers local, organic and fair trade plant-based fare.
Bristol’s unique culture and identity has helped to shape the city into the major foodie destination it is today. Indeed, it is the passion and creativity of the city’s inhabitants that make Bristol a truly distinctive and joyous place to eat, drink and most importantly live.
