Stay at one of our serviced apartments in Clifton and be just a short walk from some of our favourite places to eat, drink and shop…

When planning your trip, you will more than likely read many a rundown of the ‘great’ places to eat, drink, shop, explore in Clifton or Bristol.

Well, most of these guides are paid for and biased, whereas we simply want to tell you where is ‘genuinely’ decent.

We are avid supports of the small, independent and local businesses so we always aim to feature the ones which are worth paying a visit. But we can’t deny that there are also a handful of big boys and gorgeous girls that have something special to offer.
