Wondering where to eat in Bristol?

Restaurants in Bristol harbourside can get pricey. You could stay in to eat. Every Almero Student Mansion property is fully fitted with a range of modern appliances, so cooking a feast from scratch has never been easier. But what about those times when you want to eat out?

Home comforts are great, but so is Bristol’s food scene. From micro-chains and St. Nicks market stalls to Clifton’s independent gastro pubs, the city has something to offer everybody.

Sample Bristol’s vibrant mix of culture and cuisine, even on a student budget.


The Canteen

Live music meets eatery, with a Banksy mural thrown in for free - it doesn’t get more Bristol than this!

Originally opened to serve Hamilton House, the Canteen focuses on fairly priced food and sustainable ethics in order to provide for locals of Stokes Croft and the surrounding areas. With vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free options, and a non-profit approach to doing business, the Canteen celebrates inclusivity at every turn.

Bagel Boy

With Bagel Boy it’s all about local produce. Coffee is roasted locally by Little and Long. Even their wine and beer is the West Country’s own, keeping everything on your doorstep. What’s more, the Guardian named them one of Bristol’s “top 10 budget eats”.

Tuck into the biggest bagels you’ll enjoy this side of the Severn, crammed full with fresh, sustainably sourced ingredients that are sure to make your mouth water and leave your belly full.




Still wondering where to eat in Bristol? The city’s maritime influences extend to its cuisine. Introducing Fishminster, offering the city’s best fish and chips at prices you’ll love.

There isn’t much more satisfying than a length of battered cod and freshly cut chips, especially when you know every fish is sustainably caught, and potatoes grown from the county’s own soil. Do Fish Friday properly this week and head down to Bedminster.




If meat, heat, and beer are your things, don’t miss Bristol’s slow smoked barbeque joint.

Grillstock is as hot and flavoursome as it sounds. Its generous menu is dripping with pork, ribs, and pops, all washed down with a range of lagers and ciders. For a belly full, take a trip to St. Nicholas Market (St. Nicks, to us) and get your fill.




No one does pies like Pieminister and you can find them right here in Bristol at both Stokes Croft and Broad Quay.

Pieminister’s much loved pies are award winning, and rightly so. With a menu as deep and rich as the pies themselves, including gluten-free, open top, and pie pot varieties, there’s the pie for everyone. For flying visits and quick fancies, they even have a cafe at St. Nicks.
