Bristol

We spent Friday night in the master suite of Hotel du Vin in Bristol. Katie managed to blag it for the price of a normal room after complaining of fleas in our room last time. The huge room didn’t have fleas, however it did have a mezzanine level bathroom with two baths and a shower like Victoria Falls. All in all, the room was about the same size as our entire house.

We also went to Cafe Maitreya, voted the best vegetarian restaurant in the country by the Observer. It had quite a hippy vibe which I quite liked, but which surprised Katie. The food was surprisingly dressy given the low-fi kitchen and tasted fresh and unusual.

The more things you do in a weekend the longer it feels, so we arrived from Bristol with our stuff to see a funk band at The Yardbird. They were called The Grits and were really very good.
