Bristol Food and Drink Experiences

Welcome to Bristol

There are a wide range of food and drink experiences for your clients in Bristol.

Food tours are available to showcase the best of Bristol and there are some fabulous beer and pub tours.  Bristol is home to more than 16 breweries, most of which are small local craft brewers, who open up their taprooms and offer brewery tours. Bristol also is the City of Cider – the award-winning Bristol Cider Shop gives tutored tasting sessions focusing on local producers.

Historic pubs dating back to the 17th century (including those featured in the novel ‘Treasure Island’) sit alongside prohibition style cocktail bars.  Gin distilleries, vineyards and 225-year-old wine cellars give the chance to tour behind the scenes and enjoy a taste, or even make your own gin.  There are plenty of cookery schools and workshops available providing opportunities to learn new skills to take home.

The restaurant scene is vibrant, with a wide range of dining options from casual dining to high end experiences. The city not only has five Michelin starred restaurants in 2019 but is home to the UK’s best burger chef. Bristol is also regarded as one of the world’s best Vegan destinations. Friendly and welcoming, many restaurants are able to manage groups with pre-booking.

Bristol is also a big festival city – a busy calendar of great food and drink events throughout the year alongside regular markets, offer a chance to meet the local producers and taste some of the UK’s best street food.
