You’ll need to jump back in your car to get to the exquisite Ethicurean restaurant but it’s well worth it (it’ll take about 30 minutes to drive there). Set within a restored Victorian walled garden, the food is terrific and the setting idyllic. The menu changes twice a day and is full of home-grown ingredients. It’s perfect for lunch, dinner or even just coffee and cake.
If you’re looking for somewhere a little fancy, this contemporary cuisine foodhouse is just perfect (plus it has a Michelin star). Set in the Redland district of Bristol, less than a ten-minute walk from Neptune Bristol, we love it for a special occasion lunch or early evening supper. It also serves a rather exceptional Sunday roast.
We love a good pie. When it’s cold outside, a hearty and humble pie is precisely what we crave in wintery months. British brand, Pieminster, makes all of its award-winning pies in Bristol using responsibly-sourced ingredients. They have two restaurant locations in Bristol (in Stokes Croft and Broad Quay) as well as a more informal café in the glass arcade of St Nick’s Market. We highly, highly recommend the minted mushy peas.
The Stock Exchange Bakery
If you’re simply looking for coffee and cake, we suggest this new addition to Bristol’s bakery scene. Set in the Old St Nick’s area, it has large windows and lots of original features so it’s a lovely place to sit, not to mention eat and drink! If you decide to pop in to visit Neptune Bristol in the morning, they also serve delicious cinnamon buns and croissants as a late breakfast option.
