A post shared by Bristol Foodie (@bristol_foodie)

The Bristol Foodie is dedicated to discovering the best restaurants the city has to offer. What we love about this account is the more thorough process of reviewing the owner goes through. They comment on service and atmosphere (or ‘ambiance’), as well as food quality, and even feature some food snippets on their Instagram Reels and TikTok account. The Bristol Foodie occasionally runs giveaways and has created their own loyalty card scheme to encourage those who enjoy discovering the city’s local food spots to keep doing so: @foodiependentcard. This free card allows users to discover Bristol’s independent food and drink businesses, with offers and discounts for those who sign up

Wapping Wharf may already be somewhere recognisable for local Bristolians. It features a great mix of restaurants and cafes, and even some shops, all housed in cargo containers. For those who have an interest in discovering unique, independent food spots, this account is a great way of seeing what is going on in the harbourside quarter. With regular changes and new unit openings in the wharf, there is always plenty to see and taste. Some of our favourite restaurants that have a place in Wapping Wharf include Mexican restaurant Cargo Cantina (@cargocantina) and tapas bar Gambas (@gambastapasbar).

Foodstuff Bristol

A post shared by Foodstuff (@foodstuffbris)

If you are a regular consumer of takeaways, you may have already used Foodstuff. Foodstuff is a new food delivery service that launched in Bath and has recently arrived in Bristol. What sets this service apart from household names such as UberEats or Deliveroo, is the fact that it only delivers food from a select few independent restaurants. With the promise of eco-friendly delivery (riders can only use bicycles), Foodstuff seems revolutionary in the need to change our takeaway habits so that they do not contribute to the worsening climate crisis. The restaurants used by Foodstuff regularly change so it is always promising new and exciting food opportunities. Follow the account to see the changes. 

Ahh toots Cakery and Biscuiter

Ahh toots is a cakery and biscuiter that creates stunning looking sweet treats. The account features regular bakes, from elaborate celebration cakes, to seasonally filled donuts and speciality biscuits. Ahh toots provided a delivery service throughout lockdown, and you can still order your cakes online, but now also has an eat-in cafe in central Bristol, at the bottom of the Christmas Steps. By following Ahh toots on Instagram, you can keep up with the latest bakes and ensure you get your hands on them first. Be warned, their feed is very drool-worthy!

If you are a sushi fan, Seven Lucky Gods is the account to follow. With a range of Japanese cuisine, this Izakaya (an Izakaya is a Japanese bar serving small dishes, snacks and drinks) is located in one of the cargo containers in Wapping Wharf, the harbourside spot mentioned earlier in this post. The team behind Seven Lucky Gods run a number of esteemed restaurants and bars around Bristol and their great Instagram content debuts just some of the delicious dishes they have on offer.

Stokes Croft in Bristol is home to some of the city’s best food, Caribbean Croft being one of them. With authentic Caribbean dishes, this restaurant and rum bar is award-worthy; they were awarded Tripadvisor’s ‘Travelers’ Choice’ in 2021. Follow their Instagram to keep up with news and events, including hirings, and to see what they achieve in the future – it is surely going to be big!

If you are a sandwich fan, you should already be following this account. Knocking your supermarket meal deal out of the park, Sandwich Sandwich was voted the UK’s best independent sandwich retailer of 2019. With five different locations across Bristol and an ever-changing menu, it is no wonder the shop has over 26k followers on Instagram. Not only is the feed incredibly aesthetically pleasing, but the great sandwich combinations could even offer inspiration for your own packed lunch!

A post shared by BoscoPizzeria Bristol & Bath (@boscopizzeria)

Bosco Pizzeria is one of the most popular Italian restaurants in Bristol. After recently opening a new pizzeria in the neighbouring city of Bath, it is already rumoured that they are launching another one in Cheltenham in the near future. Their Instagram account showcases Bosco’s gorgeous interiors as well as its delicious food and is certainly worth a follow if you are a lover of authentic, Italian food and want to watch the restaurant continue to grow. 

Little French

Little French is a fully independent, family-owned restaurant located in the neighbourhood village of Westbury Park in Bristol. What is standout about Little French is its focus on sustainability. As a Farm-to-Table restaurant, it features local, British, seasonal produce on an ever-changing menu.  If you want to keep up with the awards Little French are winning, and the newspapers and TV programmes they are being mentioned in, we recommend following their Instagram. Their feed offers inspiration for how to run a successful restaurant that cares about where the food they serve comes from. 

Bristol Squeezed 

Have you ever heard of the National Burger Awards? Well, neither had we until we gave Bristol Squeezed a follow. As 2019 winners, owner Alex Hayes and his team make some of the best burgers in the business. With innovative flavours and a diverse menu (and even a Vegan option) you may be surprised to hear that Squeezed even offers really reasonable prices. What we especially love about this account is how it is a candid look into the Squeezed business, giving followers behind the scenes content as well as photos of giant burgers.
