Bristol Cheap Eats

  • 1

Hi folks.

Coming from the States to Bristol for a conference and am looking for ideas for relatively inexpensive (under 20GPB/person including tax and tip) small group (4-8 people) dinners while there. We'll all be staying in the City Centre but I can try to pull the group to other areas of town if the food and price are worth the trip.

Many thanks for your help.

  1. I'm afraid I don't have any specific recommendations for you, but note that in the UK, tax is always included in a menu price. Tip is usually 10% - and make sure that it isnt already added as a "service charge". If it is, no further tip is needed.

    As anywhere else, city centre prices are always higher than in the suburbs so you will be limiting yourself at a food price of £18 a head. More so, if drinks are to come from this as well. Pubs and "Indian" restaurants will be a good bet - as will lower end Italian.

    "Ask" is a good national chain serving pizza & pasta. "Pizza Express" is also a national which has pretty good value.

    Hopefully, someone with local knowledge will be along in due course but, in the meantime, these websites may be of interest
