East Bristol Bakery

East Bristol Bakery on St Mark’s Road in Easton make the best bread in Bristol, serving amazing sourdough with a gluten free option on Saturdays if you book in advance. Absolutely yummy handmade bread and cake, made with love care and best quality ingredients.”

Soul Fish

“An independent and ethical fish and chip shop, Soul Fish on Gloucester Road cook food from scratch using fresh natural ingredients. In a sea shell, de- fishous! See what I did there? The team also help some of the world’s poorest communities to feed their children and break the poverty cycle through Bristol based micro-finance charity Deki, and punters contribute to this every time they eat at Soul Fish.”
