Bristol Food & Drink – January 2017

yoga brunch

Welcome to 2017!

Just a quick January round up, seeing as we’re all broke and trying to stay indoors away from the frost (although I have to say that the pubs are no less busy – good on you, Bristol!)

Here’s a nifty summary of what you can munch and slurp your way through this month…


It’s a classy affair this month, with lots of opportunities to have an extra special January…

First up, if you want to kick start your month by being kind to your body – Yoga Brunch will be at The Forge on Sat 21st with food from ASIAPOP!

To celebrate the launch of their new bar in Whitehall, Bristol Spirit are hosting a Bowie Brunch on Sat 14th Jan, which includes 2 courses of food (chipotle shakshuka – yes please!) & 2 Espensen Spirit drinks (including their yummy blueberry gin) for £25.

Don your kilt and best mock Scottish accent – The Ox is hosting a Burns Night Dinner on Wed 25th, where you can get a 3 course feast with a flight of whisky for £30.

To finish off the month in style, Spanish Sunday returns to Pata Negra on the 29th Jan, with an unlimited cava and tapas brunch for just £22.50 – I’ve been before and it is immense, make sure you give it a go.
