Why we love it

The guys behind The Ox, the Milk Thistle and Pata Negra have turned their hands to something a little bit summery – and boy have they nailed it. Bambalan is a dreamy rooftop bar and restaurant that overlooks the heart of Bristol. Think fresh and healthy food: their dips and flatbreads are unreal – beautifully coloured smooth hummus, spiced beetroot, labneh and baba ganoush, contrasted with the flagship Rotisserie Chicken. Quality local beers and a range of soothing drinks are served, along with cocktails by the jug. This is perfect for a sunny day. Oh, and there's al-fresco table-tennis.
