Sadly, Brislington doesn’t have much to offer in the way of good places to eat out. But the Curry House on the Bath Road (opposite ITV) is arguably the best Indian Restaurant/Takeaway in the Brislington area. The food is delicious, and very reasonably priced. The staff are very willing to help, and the atmosphere in the restaurant is very pleasant. This restaurant deserves more recognition, and I am very pleased that it is here!

Well we do have Bocabar, the best place I know of for pizza but a bit pricy. I love that we have somewhere like this within walking distance whether we just go for drinks and nibbles or pizza.

If anyone wants to have a look at the breakfast at Bocabar, there are some pictures and comments on my blog….

Check out T Cup on Sandy Park, a new coffee/bar/food place in the same vein as the Banco places. There’s also a new coffee/greasy spoon type place on Wick Road (top of Sandy Park, turn right and it’s just up on the left) that I haven’t been to but looks nice from the outside.

I would definitely recommend T Cup – a cafe in the continental style – i.e. it serves alcohol as well and is open until late at night.
It has the large door like windows at the front which open out on to the streets for warm evenings.

In addition for during the day we now have Parsons Bakery on Sandy Park which also has a small cafe seating area

Brislington is actually my new favourite place in Bristol! It’s so beautiful (if you look beyond the post war housing estates and modern industrial and retail parks!). I’m particularly thinking about the Brislington Brook which runs from Whitchurch to St Anne’s through the gorgeous but forgotten nightingale Valley and St Anne’s Woods. Interesting ecologically (otter spraint, kingfishers, dippers, deer, badgers and eels have been spotted) and historically (St Anne’s Well and the site of St Anne’s Chapel – a medieval pilgrimage site) it’s a must for walers, wildlife enthusiasts, pilgrims and anyone who wants to escape the hussle and bustle without having to drive out of town. A new project has recently been set up called Discover Brislington Brook, check out and come along to the fun day and bat walk at the Wicklea Centre on 26th October from 2 – 6:30pm.

How can you not know about Beeses Bar & Tea Gardens on the banks of the river Avon. It’s only been trading since 1846 and is a little bit of Bristol history in the Brislington/Broomhill neighbourhood.

Spice, the Indian takeaway on Broomhill Rd, serves up some of the best curry I have ever had. Mouthwatering stuff!

But I wouldn’t combine it with a visit to the pub opposite, The Good Intent. Camp out until Easter and visit Beeses instead.

How about “The Pilgrim” Hollywood road or “The Black Castle” going up market you have Arnos Manor
Hotel or The Beeches Hotel.

My favourite pub is the Kings Arms on the Bath Rd near the Murco garage. The bar staff are friendly, the punters seem nice enough too. Could do with a lick of paint but its nice enough for a pint of beer and a natter.

Wouldn’t bother with the kings arms. Bad management, mouthy punters, broken windows, feet sticking to the floor. Oh and the glasses could do with a good clean.

Get Knitted on Brislington Hill is full of lovely things and they also run workshops. Doesn’t look like much from the front, but venture inside and you’ll be glad you did (particularly if you like knitting or the idea of knitting). No beer, but there is a sofa and a kettle…

Try Bocabar, Cafe Britalia, the cafe in Arnos Vale Cemetery, Thunderbolt, Parsons Bakery on Sandy Park, Beese Tea Garden (open 29/3) and opening soon, Grounded’s newest building on Sandy Park.
