Why we love it

Forget plastic trays and doleful dollops of semolina; this is not your average refectory. The Canteen opened its doors in 2009 with a "people over profit" mentality, leveraging the facilities of Hamilton House to lend a helping hand to those most in need. It's all about inclusivity and community, and their determination to do good through good food has helped spearhead the resurgence of Stokes Croft.

The Canteen is now one of Bristol's most vibrant meeting places - and rightly so. It's an egalitarian melting-pot of culture, offering something special to all-comers at all hours. Despite its burgeoning popularity, you'll still get excellent seasonal grub for comfortably under a tenner. As an evening meal, food is even served with free bread and soup to start. Free live music and enthusiastic crowds typify most evenings, and you'll always leave well-lubricated (thanks to the not-too-pricey pints, wine and spirits). Its a venue of real calibre, so – in true canteen style – there's often a queue to be found. Trust us, though, it's absolutely worth the wait.
