Here at Wriggle we pride ourselves on being able to sniff out the tastiest and most delectable dishes in town.  We also like to think that we're a dab hand at discovering the very best that each independent venue we work with has to offer – we can pick out a 'signature dish' at fifty paces – and we know when it's a delicious, great value banger. And guess what our favourite thing to do is ... share all of this knowledge and insider tips with you, of course! 

We've created these spiffing foodie deals and experiences so that you can sample the absolute highlights that each establishment has to offer – the real crème de la crème. Think of these Wriggle experiences like a chef's recommendation – after all, we've devised these offerings in partnership with each venue, so they can showcase the dishes that they're the proudest of. From juicy burger date nights to Caribbean feasts, we've got everything you need for a frikkin' awesome Foodventure in Bristol.

If you're not familiar with Goi Cuon, they're bonafide Vietnamese delicacies otherwise known as Summer Rolls; think Chinese Spring Rolls that have decided to ditch the deep fat fryer and, instead, go all wholesome and healthy. They're made by packing as much crunchy veg, cool vermicelli noodles, aromatic leaves, garlic, herbs and fresh Asian staples inside an elegant film of rice paper - and, although they're appetiser-sized, the results are divine. Then, start on your Pho - a bowl of flat rice noodle broth served with beansprout, coriander, herbs and chillies and interspersed with hunks of beef chicken or tofu + mushroom (the choice is up to you).

Once upon a time there were three brothers. A rugby player, a ship broker and a cabinet maker. The three brothers loved eating meat, especially pork and would continually talk about food, have great food competitions and even fight over food. One day they were having a heated debate about their favourite roast pork and sausages yet none could agree on the best. The debate became so tense they decided to solve the problem by creating their own porky delights which would one day become the best and most delicious in the whole land and BOOM, the Jolly Hog was born. PIGSTY – their first permanent (and stylish) space – is now open in the exciting new Cargo development next to the M-Shed on Wapping Wharf, Bristol. Serving breakfast, lunch and dinner with a focus on great tasting and local produce; it's your chance to see how these folks aren't telling any porkies when it comes to cracking food.
