The Bristol food and drink scene has shown remarkable resilience since the beginning of the coronavirus outbreak.
Each business has had to make its own decision as to what to do, whether that means switching from being a restaurant to a takeaway or a cafe to a delivery service.
For many it has also meant closing their doors completely following the latest government advice.
