Local Foodie Gifts…For those who love eating out

Posted on: December 2, 2010

It’s getting ever closer to Christmas (as we’re continually being reminded) and time to start shopping for Christmas gifts for friends and family. Having moved to a city that’s so fantastic for local produce, I’m keen to use local suppliers as far as possible for gifts for those close to me that are into their food and drink.

The rather ambitious plan for Bristol Bites over the next few weeks is to post a series of suggestions of locally sourced or produced gift ideas for Bristol foodies. I’ll be covering a different “theme” each time – hopefully at least some of the ideas will be useful!

So, to start…why not buy restaurant gift vouchers for those who love eating out? Many venues in Bristol offer gift certificates – including the following:


Aqua Restaurant – Italian with branches on Welsh Back and Whiteladies Road:


Quarter Jacks at the Aztec Hotel – local and seasonal produce at the Aztec Hotel, Aztec West:


Fishers Restaurant – Seafood restaurant in the heart of Clifton Village:


Casamia – Bristol’s only Michelin-starred restaurant, and winner of Ramsay’s Best Restaurant:


The Olive Shed – A flavour of the Mediterranean on the Floating Harbour, Princes Wharf:


Lido, Glassboat and Spyglass – Either opt for a voucher for a specific monetary value, redeemable at any of the three venues, or choose the “Birdfood for 2” voucher at the Lido: a no-menu experience with a range of dishes brought to your table:


Marco Pierre White Steakhouse, Bar and Grill – MPW’s latest venture at what used to be called Cadbury House:


If you know of any other local restaurants offering gift vouchers that I’ve missed, do let me know and I’ll add them to the list 🙂
