Millie’s Clifton Hot Spots


“A walk down Gloucester Road allows you to sample some of the best food in Bristol, and with plenty of pubs lining the street, you have to stop for refreshments! My faves? The award-winning Bishopston Fish Bar, Bosco’s little sister, Pizzuci, and The Grace, perfect for small plates and a pint!”


The Grace is such an incredible little hidden gem in my opinion. From the street you wouldn’t think it has it’s beautiful beer garden out the back, which is a god send in the summer. There is a pub crawl up Gloucester Road, so I’ve heard, that can lead to a fun afternoon!””


“From beautiful home interior stores to specialist bookshops, Bishopston houses some of the best independent outlets in the UK. Ottowin is home to some beautiful shoes and clothes, and Wild Leaf plant shop is a must-visit for your houseplant fix. Fox and Feather is another firm favourite of mine.”
