Bristol Food & Drink – June


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…

Exciting events

Just as one beer festival ends, so another begins – pop along to the Hope & Anchor between 2nd-6th June for their Summer Beer Fest for live music, BBQ and over 30 craft beers – it’s one of my favourite gardens in Bristol, so make sure you pay them a visit.

Fancy something a little bit stronger than beer? How about the Woods Navy Rum event at Milk Thistle on 1st June? Or if whisky is more your tipple, their sister bar Hyde & Co is doing a whisky tasting event on Thursday 2nd – both are priced at £15 and will feature a good amount of the hard stuff!

My favourite news this month is that one of my favourite supper clubs is returning! The lovely ladies from Bosh will be bringing their tasty wares to The Elephant House on Friday 3rd June – the menu looks lush and they’ve even included their famous marinated aubergine dish as a starter, woof!

Bosh are back to amuse your bouche!

Feeling even more adventurous than marinated vegetables? How about a 6 course exotic meat meal at The Rummer  on 11th June – the 6 courses will include meats such as ostrich, bison and even locust (!), all for 50 of your British Sterling.

For a more relaxing weekend treat, pop along to the next Yoga Brunch on 12th June at The Forge.

Sunday 12th June also sees the return of Make Sundays Special, where the streets around the centre of town will be closed to traffic to allow food stalls, music and frolics to take over the streets. The next events will be in local areas such as Easton, Redland, Avonmouth and Fishponds.

Finally, if you’re after a real treat this month, Saturday 18th June will see the first afternoon tea at the Historical Dining Rooms. Afternoon tea will run every Saturday between 12-3 pm, priced at £15.95 per person or £19.95 if you’d also like a glass of English fizz!
