  1. Mollie’s Diner

    A4018, Cribbs Causeway, Bristol, BS10 7TL

    Recently opened Mollie’s Diner is already catching the eye of Bristol’s foodie scene – and is the perfect place to catch up with friends. Bringing the American Dream to Bristol, this roadside spot serves incredible, instagrammable brunches, burgers, shakes and sandwiches.  Their interiors are designed by the team behind Soho House, and although the menu might make you might feel like you’re sitting inside a classic American diner, the abundance of natural light, sleek tiling and vintage inspired lighting brings a touch of elegance and class.
  2. Little French

    2 North View, Westbury Park, Bristol, BS6 7QB

    Little French is located a few miles away in Westbury Park and is well worth the journey. This cosy neighbourhood bistro is one of the most talked about restaurants in Bristol. It is the first solo project of former Clifton Lido head chef Freddie Bird, and has been named one of the UK’s best outdoor dining venues by The Daily Telegraph. We recommend checking this place out (and booking a table) if you fancy sampling their ever-changing menu of exquisite Gallic cooking, from bar snacks to hearty dishes.
  3. The Clubhouse at The Wave

    Washingpool Farm, Main Road, Easter Compton, Bristol, BS35 5RE

    The Wave goes beyond offering a fun day out of surfing for families or groups of friends. They also have a great selection of food and drinks to indulge in while you take in the incredible setting. Their food options are ever-changing, ensuring there’s plenty of variety, from vegetarian feasts to sweet treats. This summer, The Wave has teamed up with Quay Street Diner to offer healthy, hearty fast food, while a Pizza pop-up will be arriving later in the season. You’re guaranteed to find a great atmosphere, and if you close your eyes and listen to the waves, you can even pretend you’re by the coast!
