My Bristol Food - Sarah Carter

Posted on: 04 Dec 2017

In our My Bristol Food series, we talk with Bristol foodies to get their take on what makes the city's culinary scene tick and also get their recommendations. This week we spoke with Sarah Carter. 


Who are you?

My name is Sarah Carter, owner of lifestyle blog Wuthering Bites and a Freelance Marketing Manager. I’ve lived in Bristol since 2009 when I moved to go to university here, never left since!


Where are your most-visited food places in Bristol?

My place I frequent on an almost weekly basis due to my healthy pizza addiction is Pizza Workshop on North Street, they make a superb gluten free pizza and the toppings are to die for. My most-visited special occasion place is definitely the Ethicurean in Wrington, if this place closed I would be devastated! A beautiful place to just stop by and have a cuppa in the afternoon as well and look out on their expansive view of the Mendip hills.Sarah Carter | My Bristol Food | 365 BristolWhere in Bristol has the...

Best Burger

Oowee Diner (North Street). All you could ask for when you’re craving the ultimate burger and shake. The Pimento burger is my absolute fave.


Best Pub/bar

I love Christmas Steps. They offer some amazing food (always welcome to cater to allergies) and the setting is perfect throughout the winter months, cosy, buzzing and welcoming.


Best Pizza

Pizza Workshop (North Street).


Best for special occasions

Wilks  (Redland). This was a difficult one, but i have wonderful memories at Wilks that it just about swayed it for me.


Best Brunch

Spoke and Stringer - always reliable for amazing flavours and great coffee, make sure you book!My Bristol Food | Sarah Carter | 365 Bristol Best indie producer/shop/market 

Corks of North Street for my Psychopomp Gin supply; Mon Pote (North Street) for beautiful lifestyle gifts and home decor, I love Tobacco Factory Market every Sunday, and if a cheeky commute to Portishead counts, my family run a monthly artisan vintage, craft & food market - the last Sunday of every month at Court House Farm


Best Cake

Ahh Toots for their cake masterpieces and plenty of choice including Gluten Free and Vegan options.


Any other top foodie tips?
Wapping Wharf  is a great food district in Bristol, full of lunch/dinner spots - The Athenian is addictive!


If you were the Mayor of Bristol for a day what would you do?
Hurry along the Bristol Arena plans!


You’ve got 24 hours in Bristol to show some visitors around. What are you going to do? 
Start with a coffee in Wapping Wharf at Little Victories, have a nice stroll around the Harbourside (enjoy ss Great Britain, the old cranes). Get the bus or walk to Clifton for a nice tapas lunch at The Lido, before heading to Clifton Suspension Bridge for some great photos.
