Bristol seems to be the city that just doesn’t stop giving.   With so many restaurants upping their game, it’s hard to find the ‘spare cash’ to eat out quite as much as we’d like! Luckily for you, I’ve put together my ‘Best value for money’ restaurants. Whether you have a special occasion looming or something for your everyday delicious food, I promise there’s something for you here!

Thali Café

Address: Various locations, Bristol


If you prefer to try a selection of mini dishes that will cover more variety, then the Thali Café is for you. ‘The Thali’ is served on large silver dish with a selection of more traditional meat or veggie mini platters, chapattis, chutneys and paratha style breads.

Pizzarova started out serving pizzas from a converted Landrover, they’re now proudly nested on Gloucester road where they continue to delight with their handmade sourdough pizzas topped with fresh, seasonal ingredients of your choice. Get involved with their Free Pizza Fridays on Twitter, or pop in on a Tuesday night for £10 pizza and beer.

Fishers is your answer for a special date night without It costing an arm and a leg. While I wouldn’t call it cheap, the quality of their fresh fish, for the price you pay is fantastic value and worth every penny. Every month they also offer a special deal for the following month which is worth checking out. As well as a set menu offer and ‘Dine for £9 after 9’.

Clifton Sausage

Address: 7-9 Portland Street, Bristol BS8


Clifton Sausage is without a doubt one of my favourite restaurants in Bristol ever. The atmosphere and friendly staff are as warm and comforting as their selection of banging bangers and English classics. There’s just something very special about this place, and it won’t break the bank.

Pasta Loco

Address: Cotham Hill, Bristol BS6   T


This award-winning ‘best restaurant in Bristol’ pasta restaurant is not reflected in the price. These mouth watering pasta dishes are incredibly affordable, and the team take pride in wanting to serve delicious dishes to the masses without any pretention. Their reputation is growing and as you can imagine, tables get booked up pretty fast! Their midweek lunch deal for 3 courses for £15 is fantastically good value too.

The Ox

Address: Corn Street & Clifton 


For a perfect steak, you cannot fault The Ox on Whiteladies Road, or tucked away in their Corn Street location. They offer an amazing early evening deal at just £15 for a rump steak, fries, a choice of sauce or butter & a glass of house wine.

Eat a Pitta

Address: Various locations, Bristol 


Eat a Pitta have had such success with their stalls outside in Broadmead and in St Nicks Market that they have expanded with two falafel restaurants found on Gloucester Road and The Triangle. They serve up giant bowls of fresh salads and couscous with their insane falafels and a generous dollop of hummus, these portions are a serious financial winner and normally come in at just a fiver.

The authentic, fresh, healthy Vietnamese food at Pho won’t break your bank or your diet! I opt for a crispy, colourful chicken ‘Goi salad’ and prawn rice paper rolls – the peanut sauce is *to die for*.

Three Brothers Burgers

Address: Welsh Back, Bristol BS1


I won’t over complicate this one. If you enjoy craft beers/cider and a good US style burger, then Three Brothers is the one for you. Monday – Saturday until 5pm you can grab a burger and chips for a fiver – I challenge you to try beat that value!

The Station Kitchen

Address: Silver Street, The Station BS1


The Kitchen is a social enterprise training café run by the YMCA. They serve up wholesome tasty, healthy and hearty breakfasts and lunches, presented beautifully and made fresh daily all for a very reasonable price.
