Why we love it

There's nothing The Social has a go at, and doesn't get right. This cafe-cum-bar is slap-bang in Stokes Croft, serves hearty food made to order, and has a wide bar filled with local ales and organic wines. The interior ticks all the boxes - homely furnishings, Chesterfield sofas and an abundance of candles - while the courtyard garden is a sheltered smoker's paradise.

Social by name and social by nature, it feels pretty much full anytime of the day, yet you can always manage to grab a table (or two!). Each weekday evening presents an offering of sorts, such as Cocktail Tuesdays and Wine Wednesdays, meaning you'll always grab a good deal - particularly when there's a Wriggle on!

Highlights

Waking up with a hangover and heading straight for a Bloody Mary
Basking in the sheltered sun-trap garden during hot sunny heatwaves
Being able to talk above the music - a rare find in Stokes Croft!

Delicious, fresh baps, a real treat for lunch but not too much that could not work in the arvo.

Food is nice and the deal is good price. The staff aren’t the friendliest but I guess that doesn’t always matter. Mixed atmosphere but a good easy place for lunch and lots of room!

Love the social, but this deal was not great - we didn’t get a side salad, veggie burger was average. No need to buy a wriggle deal really as this deal is already on every Thursday and the deals not really worth it if you’re not having an alcoholic drink. Usually love the social though - great staff, great atmosphere and generally the food is good.
