Categories Bristol Discover Food What's on Foodie Discounts | The Bristol Food Card Author Sophie BaileyNo Comments on Foodie Discounts | The Bristol Food Card Bristol is a city with a flourishing independent food scene, and we’ve recently discovered a new way to explore it – the Food Connections Food Trail. The Trail has been carefully curated to highlight the very best of Bristol’s independent cafes, restaurants, pubs, coffee shops and retailers, and it includes everyone from Bells Diner to Pata Negra to Ruby and White. As an incentive to visit, shop and eat local and support home grown talent, the Food Trailers have introduced The Bristol Food Card; it’s a loyalty card to connect people with good food and independent local businesses during the Food Connections festival (29 April to 7 May 2016). Bristol is the first city that we’re aware of to have such a thing. For a one off purchase of £5, The Food Card unlocks exclusive offers, promotions and discounts at over 70 venues across the city. From restaurants to retailers, and diners to delicatessens there are over 90 different offers available exclusively to Food Card holders. There’s 15% off your meat shopping at Ruby & White and 5% off your groceries at Better Food Company. And, you’ll be treated to free drinks with your meals at some establishments: The Ox Bristol offer a complimentary Psychopomp Gin & Tonic with every lunchtime main meal while Poco offer a foraged spring digestif with your tapas dinner. Plus there are freebies and discounts at No 1 Harbourside, The Old Market Assembly & Spicer & Cole to name just a few. So during the nine day festival, you can nibble and sip (or gobble and slurp, if you prefer!) your way around the city. You’re sure to discover new favourites, however long you’ve lived here – in such a vibrant city that evolves constantly it’s a dead cert! Buy your Bristol Food Card and find out more here.
