Bristol Food Connections is about celebrating good food and bringing people and communities together. It’s about coming together and feasting with family and friends, trying new things and supporting our local businesses and economy.
Pop-up restaurants are a prime example of everything that Bristol Food Connections stands for and unsurprisingly there are plenty popping up all over the place from 1-11 May. Here’s a taster for you, don’t forget to book soon before they all sell out!
