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!


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!

everything in there is great! i love it


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!


Amazing selection of vegan dishes, everything we ordered was delicious and came with complimentary foccacia and olives!


Good atmosphere, friendly staff and great food


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.
