Best Bristol Instagram Photos in October

Bristol’s best pictures on Instagram are here again. Selected by Jess and Jon of the marvelous Bristol Igers account.

1. Seamus O’Donnells by @kyology

Seamus O'Donnells

​If I’m ever in the centre of town and have some free time I love to wander around parts of the Old City, especially St. Nick’s Market. And this has been a long-held favourite view as you emerge from the market, captured beautifully by Kai. We’d suggest giving his gallery some love. ❤

2. Shooting Star by @jimcosseyphotography

A definite favourite from October but ​our repost of this amazing photo by Jim doesn’t do it justice in any way. So we demand you go & take a look at it properly on Jim’s page. Go on!

3. Sky’s On Fire by @sjtanton

​We were blessed with some incredible sunrises and sunsets during October but there was one particular evening where I’ve never witnessed a Bristol sunset quite so spectacular. On my own Cliftonwood street, neighbours were photographing it from their front gardens & bedroom windows. And on the other side of Cliftonwood, Sharon was doing the same, photographing this gorgeous shot. A #nofilter moment; it really was this beautiful.

4.  Stilts by @rachelfoxwell

​St. Vincent’s Parade alongside the start of the Portway which Rachel captured perfectly from the Leigh Woods side, making the houses appear as though they really are on stilts! The blue sky and different coloured front doors add an extra special something.


5. Sky’s On Fire Part Two by @sauntimo

​This magnificent picture taken by @sauntimo captures one of the finest sunrises Hotwells is ever likely to witness. Colourful, stunning and brimming with the wow factor.


6. Bird’s Eye View by @clarendon23pt

It’s not every day we get to feature a bird’s eye view of the Clifton Suspension Bridge but @clarendon23pt was on hand to capture this great shot featuring a menacing looking blackbird. The Autumn haze over the Avon Gorge is also something special.


7. Bridge of Light by @jame5-na5h

We love how @jame5-na5h was able to produce this wonderfully framed ground level shot of the Clifton Suspension Bridge at night. The symmetry is superb.

8.  Glimpse Of Hope by @icingling

​@icingling captured this brilliant shot of the Clifton Promenade looking particularly stunning in autumn colours. It’s one of Bristol’s most photographed sights and it’s not hard to see why judging by this great capture.

Rosa Opens in Bristol

Rosa Review

The rising chill of autumn had descended, and I was a Bristol girl in need of a stiff drink to warm my gills. Red coat on, black heels donned and a long overdue catch up with an old friend in the diary, we headed on over to the newly opened Rosa on Whiteladies Road for a night of tapas and prosecco.

Rosa has some big shoes to fill. Bristolians will remember the good old days of Rocinantes and Quartier Vert and more recently the Townhouse at this treasured venue.

Spread over two floors, with candles, old typewriters and flowers galore, this new bar-come-eatery, which promises “world inspired food to share” is romantic, cosy and stylish.

If you can’t quite justify spending money on a round-the-world plane fare, a trip to Rosa will go some way to taking you on a global foodie adventure.

Chef Tim Denny – formerly of Totterdown’s Historical Dining Rooms – is at the kitchen helm and he’s created a menu that simultaneously tantalises, impresses and surprises.

Sharing dishes include mixed bread with salt and paprika butter (£4), spiced flatbread with curried chickpeas, yoghurt and fresh lime (£5.50), steamed bao with pulled oxtail, miso mayonnaise and crispy shallots (£6 and my personal favourite), as well as burrata mozzarella with picked mooli, radish and mint salad (£6.50).

For meat lovers, there’s a sliced shoulder of Iberico pork option (£7) and a mouth-watering whole Galican beef rib (£25) cooked over hot coals and served on the bone with baby gem salad. Seafood fans can opt for hot seared salmon sashimi with sesame and soy (£7.50) or flame grilled octopus with crisp noodles and spring onions (£6.50). There’s also the classic Spanish tapas dish of patatas bravas (£5.50) up for the tasting, and its rich, spicy tomato  sauce, doesn’t disappointed.

For dessert, there’s churros with olive oil Nutella (£5.50) and BBQ salted milk ice cream with caramel coconut sponge (£6.50), among other options. What’s more there’s always a cheese of the month. Now we’re talking…

Alongside the main tapas menu, there is a fantastic value set lunch menu at £11.95 for two courses and £13.50 for three courses.

Fancy a tipple? There’s a large selection of wine available by the glass or carafe starting at £4.50 and going up to the most expensive £48 Bordeaux from Chateau Paveil de Luze. A generous cocktail selection is available, in addition to a plethora of local gins (Psychopomp), Spanish sherries, sparkling Japanese sake and beer from a range of local breweries including Wiper and True and Arbor Ales.

It’s unlikely you’ll get through the entire menu on your first visit. But don’t they say it’s always best to leave wanting more?

9 Amazing Vans Spotted In Bristol



bristol van

Top 9 Vans of Bristol

Art galleries sometimes on the move sharing the art all over the city.

1. This is either very fresh or the van is a permanent feature (look at the back wheel)

montpellier van

2. Unusually the best work on this van in Easton is on the back. Looks like an anti surveillance grannie to me. Ironically I’m watching it though

3. St Werburghs now, and it’s like a go faster type tag on the wall behind trying to photobomb this shot

4.  It’s Easton again. Not a van, an ambulance but this stick on lettering is good enough to get it an entry here. It’s taken food to the needy and it’s earnt it’s place

easton van

5. Edge of Easton by the M32 and its festival food van me thinks, looking at the mud it’s picked up on the underside. Would be nice to snap it with the pizza smoking out the unseen chimney

6. St Paul’s. This one was camouflaged for the area

7. Same artist as Pizza truck so this one must be fam

8. St Werburghs again. This one really has some landscape length to it. Who does those dinos?

9. My fave, and popular with the owner. My dog sighs did this and instead of eyes following you round the room it’s eyes following you round the city. Kobra street art to the right from Upfest and of all the shots of vans this one is the most pleasing to my eye. Deffo a Basquiat thing going on here
