Meet the Women Running the Bristol Food Scene

Shona (previously of Yurt Lush) named her gorgeous little cafe after her niece Emmeline. Taking over the previous shop, Dutty's, that occupied the site in Stokes Croft, Shona has made Emmeline her own. With flowers, succulents and cacti for sale from The Mighty Quinn, fantastic coffee and delicious food, and the ever-lovely welcome of Shona, Emmeline is one of our favourite independents.

The Best Pubs on Bristol's Gloucester Road

Wander up Gloucester Road far enough and you'll discover The Grace: a proper little oasis of calm amidst all the hustle and bustle. Walking into The Grace feels like taking a step back in time - not in a phoney, olde-worldy, gimmicky kind of way, though.

If there's one thing that you can count on at Christmas time, it's that in most households, the board games will come out in force. There'll probably be a lot of laughs, and most definitely the odd tantrum from an overly-invested family member, too (takes one to know one...).
