St Mark’s road and around in Easton has some of the best cheap eateries in Bristol. As well as the ever-popular Tali, (Winner Best Cheap Eat – The Observer Food Awards 2010) it has two Moroccan restaurants, more than two excellent and super-friendly fast food/kebab take-aways (the Easton take-away and Alwaha) and also Cafe Maitreya, possibly one of the best vegetarian restaurants in the country.

People from all over the world live in Easton. It has several mosques and churches as well as a Sikh temple and there is a distinct community feel with many street parties and a vibrant arts trail hosted every year.

Easton has its own art studios and recording studios; its own community centre and grocery shops, and even its own sports teams who conglomerate regularly around one of Easton’s most popular pubs, The Plough. Other popular public houses are the Sugar Loaf, (especially due to its relaxed beer garden and three pool tables) and the Greenbank, (more of a bar than a pub and its own table tennis tournament once a month).

Easton was a mining area, as much of Bristol used to be. It’s Industrial heritage also links to the nearby Greenbank Chocolate Factory, recently purchased for redeveloment into housing, art studios, cafe and cycle store. Easton is also where the famous cricketer W.G. Grace lived and worked as a doctor

Greenbank Pub is no more any people interested in making it a community pub? No idea how one goes about this but would love to have it up and running again, and not turned into Flats

Easton has a volunteer run Community Allotment. The garden is open once a week Thursdays from 11am till dusk. We open every week throughout the year regardless of the weather, except around christmas and new year.

Everyone is welcome. You don’t need any gardening experience, but you will be just as welcome if you are already a skilled gardener. We garden collaboratively with a co-ordinator who keeps an overview of what needs to be done. There is no obligation to come each week, just drop in when you feel like it.

There is a lovely shelter where we share lunch and escape the rain. At the end of the day whatever we harvest is divided. We open every Thursday whatever the weather! Its about the size of three allotments and established about 10 years ago to grow vegetables, fruit , flowers and herbs collectively and share the harvest equally.

Find your way to the garden at: eastoncommallot.wordpress.com We are down the lane between Nos: 58 and 60 on Gordon Road just off the Bristol to Bath Cycle Path.
