The Real Greek Eatwalktalkbristol food tour

Thursday 25th January 2018

We don't go to chains but the chance to reminisce old times when I lived in London and was well less fiercely independent was too much to miss when The Real Greek rolled in to town this week. My Real Greek experience was always at the branch on the South Bank between Borough and Tate Modern, a regular work place or foodie pilgrimage often had me walk past chain central around the OXO tower and I would sit and pretend I was back on a Greek Isle looking out at the slightly less Azure waters of the Thames but the menu was good enough for me to transport myself away from work stress and forget it all for a few minutes. I…

The Cauldron - What's the Beef?

Thursday 11th January 2018

Our second visit to The Cauldron and after a suitably encouraging mid week lunch we stepped it up with the ultimate test for open flame cooking and went for Sunday Roast. Its probably all been said by other far more eloquent writers but if you have been under a stone somewhere then The Cauldron is an eclectic (read mad) restaurant based in darkest St Werburgh just around the corner from Biblos and Better Foods. St Werburgh is worthy of its very own review but suffice to say you see some 'interesting' things there. The restaurant itself is all about the kitchen; jammed into a back corner its pretty much pinched from any movie thats trying to depict a witches coven with pots,…

Finest Dining

Thursday 28th December 2017

Its been a long time coming but we finally visited Wilson's restaurant just before Christmas as part of our eat, drink and be merry because pretty soon we will diet month. We've had a fantastic year visiting some of the amazing restaurants in Bristol so Wilson's had some pretty stiff competition if it was going to stand up against the like of Bulrush, Box E, Casa Mia, Adelina's Yard and The Ethicurean but I'm happy to report they didn't just stand up they towered with their amazing food. We arrived along the fabled Chandos Road a little early and as we Virgo's do, so used that promptness to scope out the local area that's becoming its own little mecca for foodies with…

The Good,The Busy and The Dirty

Sunday 10th December 2017

I just checked out my twitter feed and the last three tweets in my feed involve #turbot #Iceland and #crisps. Ok, so the Iceland is promoted because if they knew me they would realise thats a promoted tweet badly spent. Still, I like to think in work and across our food tours we have a pretty wide range in the food I eat and talk about. This week as well as a mega tour for Kerry Foods (the busy) we also tried out the new residency at Kongs, Sub Dunk, where the menu centres around well Subs! Thankfully not the Subway ones of the ubiquitous sandwich chain but instead dirty subs that play on the US French Dips sandwich. If you…

Could Pickled Brisket get any better?

Saturday 25th November 2017

Our guests love the food on Wapping Wharf but its about to get even better... Flora and Robin, the husband and wife team behind The Pickled Brisket have added to their already popular salt beef menu - a classic comfort food; grilled cheese. They've always loved a good grilled cheese sandwich, enjoying it at London's Borough Market, at their street food friends stall, For Mice & Men and as a staple afternoon snack at home with their family. They wanted to create a grilled cheese menu with a difference at their container at Wapping Wharf. The benefits of having premises at Wapping Wharf include the sense of community and having so many excellent local independent suppliers and producers on their doorstop. To…

Have you visited this star restaurant?

Tuesday 21st November 2017

I've set myself a challenge across the last two months of the year to visit all of the awesome restaurants that are either new or I just haven't quite made it too in the hurley burley of daily life. Its a commitment that requires getting out and about a couple of times a week and forcing myself to eat some of the finest food in the UK. Its a tough life and don't I know it? Having visited Dela (amazing) and Jamaica Street Stores (still ironing out the kinks) in recent weeks I set my sights high with a visit to the newly awarded Michelin Star, Paco Tapas. Paco Tapas is part of the Sanchez brothers triumvirate that includes another of…

Sunday Lunch is for Sharing Dela

Sunday 5th November 2017

Dining out in Bristol is getting more and more difficult! There are simply so many amazing places to eat and drink its harder and harder to choose where to go and then just when you think you have done them all or at least created the perfect spreadsheet of reservations and bookings they go and open another one.... I'll save my review of the best 2017 openings for later in the year after all this is Bristol and with 6 weeks left of the year there are likely to be more... However, one that will surely make my list is Dela. Opened in September, Dela, is a truly brilliant neighbourhood restaurant that serves sharing boards, mains and desserts that are a real treat. …
