Gloucester Road is one of the most interesting parts of Bristol. Famed for being the UK’s longest independent high street (not sure if that’s still true), it’s home to all the cliche Bristol stuff, like Banksy artwork and old crusties not wearing shoes. Nestled in […]
Off to the exotic vistas of Bedmo today, to try Grounded‘s veggie breakfast offering. Conveniently sited opposite a massive Asda, and there’s always the possibility you’ll see a lady walking a skunk (no, really). Grounded is a chain in Bristol with a few branches dotted […]
Zut alors! Patisserie Valerie is best-known for serving delicious cakes and desserts, usually piled high with cream and chocolate. So I was surprised to see that they also do lunch, sandwiches and all-day breakfasts! We popped in to give them a try…
First impressions: good amount of toast. That pot of tea is enormous, but it was also almost £3 – to be honest, a single cup would have been fine. Beans in ramekin – never needed, just let those bad boys mingle with the rest of the breakfast. The mushrooms were pretty crap – watery and tasteless (I think they were frozen). However, the one redeeming feature of this breakfast was the “spinach and cheese frittata”, which was a bit like a cheesy, mini-omelette. Tasty, but couldn’t save this breakfast, sadly.
Too pricey, a bit meh – I give this 3 sausages out of 10.
Glastonbury, being one of the most hippy-dippy places on Planet Earth, should have a wealth of vegetarian options, so we thought we’d make a start here! We stopped at Mocha Berry during a trip to buy mead at Shieldmaiden (worth the drive, it’s lush and […]

I’ve not cooked with harissa before, and the smells of chilli, star anise and spices were so delicious. A low-effort Moroccan-style feast!
