Food and drink in Bristol

Vibrant vegan scene and good value street food

Bristol’s food and drink scene is delicious, diverse and often affordable.

The affectionately known St Nick’s market is the place for street food. From Pieminister pies to pittas and Portuguese tarts you’ll find something interesting to try.

Wapping Wharf is a favourite student destination. Shipping containers converted into cafes, restaurants and delis host local and independent businesses. It’s all here – from fish and chips to plant-based burgers and sourdough pizza. Better still, you’re right by the harbourside and can grab a bench to watch the world go by while you munch.

There are loads of constantly changing meal deal offers to explore in the city and student discount memberships will take you a long way.

More student faves: Oowee vegan and the iconic Three Brothers Burgers, where you can meet up with friends or settle in with the laptop and enjoy a mid-week lunch for around £7.
