Beer: brew, enjoy, empty, repeat

Beer sampler

Traditional British beer is rich and complex and it would be a shame to taste just one! The same goes for our Swiss beer. Our Beer Flight is an exciting experience for our experimental guests: top-fermented and bottom-fermented beers from Britain and Switzerland are paired with matching snacks.

English cheese


Say Cheese, please

Let’s not forget our cheese. We present a selection of the very best cheeses the UK has to offer. People here tend to be most familiar with Cheddar and Stilton from the prepacked-products fridge in the supermarket. We have made it our mission to prove that these two cheeses in particular deserve better than to end up as a filler wedged between two pale slices of toast.

It’s definitely worth setting the alarm a few minutes earlier for our breakfast. Local Swiss products sit side by side on The Bristol’s large breakfast table with specialities imported from across the English Channel. You decide whether it’s quick and efficient or something a little heartier.
