Bristol Food & Drink: February 2017

Funtime coocktails at the newly-opened Bristol Spirit

Calm yourselves, in the midst of this misty and chaotic start to the year, we also have lots of exciting events to look forward to.

It’s not quite time for Cargo 2 to open, or for the spring festivals, but there’s still plenty to get giddy about. Have your calendars at the ready – it’s time to make notes for February…


If you’re looking for something special to sate your appetite this month, here are a few suggestions:

  • Three Course Toast is back at Pinkmans on Monday 6th, with treats including slow cooked beef on sourdough, and a rhubarb & custard brioche – phwoar. £25, including a welcome drink.
  • Lee Skeet Seafood are doing a one-off supper club at Wilson’s on Chandos Road on 26th Feb, featuring several courses of amazing-sounding Cornish produce, for £40 per person.
  • Matatu Kitchen are back on Friday 24th, serving a 4 course Swahili & Somali feast for £25.



They’re only around for a limited time, so catch ’em while they’re hot!

  • Wings Diner will be serving Asian fried chicken at Bagel Boy on St Nicholas St on Sunday 5th (this looked so good last time, so don’t miss out!)
  • Underdogs will be selling their yumtastic hot dogs at The Hare for one night only on Friday 3rd.
  • Los Hermanos will be cooking up a culinary storm at The Love Inn from 7th-25th.
  • Like your cod with a side of Dr Dre? Head along to Hip Hop in a Chip Shop on the 16th for one of the more bizarre parties in town.

If you’re in the wooing sort of mood, here are some of the more romantic things happening on 14th February:

Here are the new guys in town for you to pay a visit to!
