BEN WhITE THIS HUNGRY MEMBER OF THE MARSHFIELD BAKERY TEAM SHARES HIS FAVOURITE FOODIE HIDEOUTS...
Favourite grocery shop? Larkhall Farm Shop always has a good array of local fresh fruit and veg, as well as flowers. The service there is always with a smile, too. Best wine merchant? Tasting Room. I go quite often – in fact, far too often! There are some fantastic featured wines and spirits, and I’ve also been to a few tasting events there which are well run and really informative.
Best curry? For simple classics, Curry Mahal is my fave, to takeaway or eat in. Posh nosh? The Circus (not mega posh, but still lovely). Best atmosphere? Graze, Bath. I love this place for drinks with mates or a meal in a lively spot. Always seems to be busy, and the service is great.
Quick pint? The Rose and Crown, Larkhall. It’s literally paces from my house, and the new owners have done a great job. A quick pint often leads to more… With friends? The Beaufort. This has been a great addition to the Larkhall area. Laid back, friendly but no compromise on quality. With the family? Alice Park Café – taking the kids to the park and then enjoying a quick bite is ideal. Well located, safe and always a friendly vibe.
Breakfast? Wild Café in Bath – great vibe, especially for a Saturday brunch. Good range of breakfasts, but I tend to go for the classic full English. Alfresco feasting? Avon Gorge Hotel in Bristol: the view cannot really be bettered. Looking down the Avon at the Clifton Suspension Bridge, whilst eating and drinking, is fab! Belting burger? Three Brothers Burgers. I went there recently after work – wow. Simply great burgers, and a generally cool place.
Best brew? Boston Tea Party. I love the layout and feel in the Alfred Street site, especially. Good place for business meetings too, and I think they serve the best tea.
One to watch? Pintxo. Bath has a good tapas scene, and this could be the next great addition. Really well done food, and good range of sherry. marshfieldbakery.co.uk
