And secondly, we thought it would be a nice idea to do a bit of a blog about food this month, as you may or may not know Chandos Road is known as a bit of a “hub” for top Bristol eateries and food with some of Bristol’s most highly rated restaurants based there.
On / around Chandos Road here are some of the most stand-out independent restaurants in no particular order;
