It’s not every day that a new fine dining venue opens in Bristol. Restaurant Fifty opened in Clifton Village on Saturday, July 30th, promising that “with their mix of modern cooking techniques they offer the Clifton dining scene a real treat”. Seeing the sample menus on their website and learning of the in-house smoker and credentials of owners Scott and Wendy Chance and head chef Dany Lancaster prompted us to book a table for dinner for the following Tuesday night… Read the rest of this entry »


When tasked with looking for a cheapish, relaxed restaurant in Clifton to catch up with a friend over an early evening weekday dinner, Bauhinia seemed like a good option. There were three key reasons for the choice: it had been recommended by friends and colleagues, it’s somewhere I’d not been before, and it offers an early evening menu of a starter and a main (from a selection from the main menu) for £8.90 per head – including Saturdays and Sundays… Read the rest of this entry »

Pig dinners seem to be popular in Bristol at the moment! After attending the first Castellano’s All Things Pig dinner, I unfortunately wasn’t able to make the second.

I’m ashamed to admit that, despite having been in Bristol for almost two years, I’ve only recently paid my first visit to the Bristol institution that is The Thali Café. Winner of the Best Cheap Eats award in the Observer Food Monthly Awards last year, it’s a mini-chain of Indian restaurants with branches in Montpelier, Easton, Totterdown and Clifton – a friend and I headed to the Clifton Village restaurant for a review for the new food page in 247 MagazineRead the rest of this entry »

I’ve been struggling to find a decent Indian restaurant near me for a while, so when Asif from the newly opened Rupsha on Clifton Village’s Regent Street invited me to come for dinner, I wasn’t going to say no… Read the rest of this entry »

Signing up to mailing lists is definitely the way forward. Last week saw an email from The Mall pub in Clifton winging its way over, announcing that they were offering a limited number of complimentary meals for two. Why? Well, they’ve recently relaunched their menu and want customer feedback. It would have been rude not to help them out, really… Read the rest of this entry »

It’s almost time for the launch of another new restaurant in Bristol’s Clifton Village – this time a new branch of French restaurant Côte… Read the rest of this entry »
