Father's Day in BristolPosted on: 16 Jun 2017
They do a lot for us, our dads – in both keeping a roof over our heads and keeping things happy beneath it, both nurturing and nourishing us in our formative years, and, more impressively, putting up with us in our teenage ones – their work is eternally impressive. So impressive, in fact, that it seems rather reductive to label just one day in their honour annually.
But on the third Sunday in June (this Sunday) the country over, we celebrate our fathers especially for 24 hours. If you are struggling for ways in which to spend the day properly, take a look below at our handy guide to the finest Father’s Day entertainment in Bristol.
With temperatures set to soar to 28°C on Sunday, Bristol Balloons have kindly offered to whisk you up and above the scorching heat, where you can enjoy sprawling vistas of the sun-drenched city for a specially-discounted Father’s Day price. To book in for a soaring experience, head to the Bristol Balloons website.
At Aquila, the Italian restaurant in central Bristol, there is a free glass of fathers on offer for fathers dining on Sunday, which will delight dad almost as much as the discounted bill – which comes as a result of the free kids meal they are offering with their compliments. To take advantage of this deal, enter the code ‘FDAY’ in the notes when you book your meal online – you can do so here.
This Sunday The Golden Guinea is trotting out a champion deal for dads, who are invited to drink half price beers and rums between 1pm and 5pm – does anything suggest fatherly love like a discount drink? In between pints, take advantage of some of the fine food on offer and make it a true treat for the taste buds.
Serving up a footy feast for Father’s Day are the Memorial Stadium, where you can enjoy a four-course carvery dinner with a smashing view of the hallowed turf trodden by Bristol Rovers. Places cost £29.50 (half price for kids) and can be booked by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thinking outside the box this Father’s Day, you could lock up your pops (and the rest of the family) at Puzzlair, Bristol’s best real life escape games. They are offering a special discount on Sunday, spelling 15% off for parties! Click here for more.
An ardent Geordie minus the accent, Sam seemingly strove to get as far away from the Toon as possible, as soon as university beckoned. Three undergraduate years at UoB were more than ample time for Bristol (as it inevitably does) to get under his skin, and so here he remains: reporting, as Assistant Editor, on the cultural happenings which so infatuated him with the city.
