After a record sell-out last year, Food Passports are back. And this time, we’ve added two more districts for you to explore. 

Bristol is home to one of the most exciting and diverse food scenes in the country, packed with top quality food outlets and independent businesses. But how can visitors and residents see it all without breaking the bank?

These three pocket-sized Food Passports act as your ticket around three gastronomic districts of Bristol:Bristol’s Independent District – includes the famous Gloucester Road, finalist of the Great British High Street 2018

All of the venues provide a vegetarian option, and many of them can also cater for vegan diets, however please check the respective business websites for more information, or make the venue aware of any dietary requirements when you arrive.

In each district, the Food Passport is your ticket to a free taster or small plate in 13-15 different venues. Discover the cafés, bars, and restaurants on your doorstop (or on the other side of the city!), and find your new favourite joint.

Valid for the full ten days of the festival, there is plenty of time to either choose one district, or collect them all! Please refer to your passport and check business opening hours before visiting.
