Well, we’re post-Glastonbury,we have a new mayor, and everyone is quitting everything.
But fear not, there’s plenty to keep you in good spirits throughout July – just read on!
Here are the festivals, tasty events and new openings you can look forward to in the coming weeks…(and that’s in addition to the amazingness that is Upfest coming to the city at the end of the month, and Bristol Harbour Festival!)
Well here we are in June (well, almost if you’re a keener reading this on the day I first post it – I’m off on my holidays so it’s a bit early this month!)
It’s officially half way through the year and we’re now well in to festival season; so before you become too sunburnt and dehydrated from existing solely on a diet of scrumpy and Mini Cheddars from the pub, here’s what you should be doing with the next few weeks…
This post is a little later than usual, mainly due to the amazing Food Connections stealing all of my spare time!
The festival runs until the end of Saturday 7th, so grab a programme or Food Trail guide and make the most of the last few days of food frolics.
Other than that, here’s what else you can lick your chops in anticipation of this month…
We all love a sweet treat to perk up our day, reward ourselves or just because we can’t resist the temptation of a tasty-looking brownie on a cafe counter (I am the ultimate impulse cake purchaser – stop putting them so close to the till!)
Bristol has no shortage of places that will happily send you into a euphoric sugar daze – here are my recommendations, helpfully split out by craving type; you’re welcome.
Spring has sprung! The cobbles of King St are once again flush with ruddy-cheeked and sunglasses-bedecked folk!
This month we’ve got a plethora (yes, a PLETHORA, folks) of beer festivals, dining events and workshops, and that’s before I even get started on telling you about all the things you should look forward to at Food Connections at the end of the month, phew.
Kick off your shoes and crack open a window, here’s where you should be drinking and dining this month…
The view from the soon-to-launch Brigstow Bar & Kitchen – nice eh?
Welcome to March! How excited are we all about the slow approach of spring?
I’m particularly excited about this month as we have some really great new places finally opening their doors (read on for more info) plus a plethora (yes, a plethora) of great dining events and boozy frolics for you to choose from.
Put on your cosiest socks and make sure you have a cuppa at the ready – here’s what you can look forward to this month…
Happy February – your diet ends here at The Parlour!
After a month off I’m back with a fresh list of exciting food & drink frolics to whet your appetite for February!
January was a bit of a quiet one, although I did do my first ickle interview on the telly (talking about the Bristol food scene on Made in Bristol TV), and I also found out that people prefer their bananas yellow rather than green or brown – follow me on Twitter for more insightful polls and questions.
