Located in the heart of the city, 1847 Bristol is positioned along St Stephens Street and just minutes from the main hotels, theatres, shopping district and harbour side.

Dear Friends,

Thank you for the overwhelming show of support and help in the past months. I very much appreciate it and am very grateful and forever in your debt.

After a much needed rest and recuperation, my partner Ben and I, together with my family, and friends have been busy looking into many different options of re-opening Tiffins. To this end  I  am very grateful to  many  Tiffins friends, who have also  been busy helping us.  But alas my preferred option to reopen   Tiffins as  A Social Enterprise, is currently not possible as it needs a lot more time, effort and expertise, which at present I don’t have.

So, in the meantime  we have decided to offer Tiffins curries – frozen from our site on St Michael’s Hill, together with chutneys and kulfi (Indian ice cream). We are trying this out for three months, as this as a new concept.

Please keep checking our website and Facebook page for further updates.

Miller Green (vegan)

www.millergreen.co.uk

No more deliveries but lots of recipes After six years of delivering vegan meals to the discerning folk of Bristol, the Miller Green kitchen has closed.  It was an enormous joy and privilege running Miller Green but the time felt right to stop and other challenges were calling.

When we started in 2015, there was very little choice if you didn’t want to eat animal products and what there was wasn’t particularly inspiring.  Our aim was to show that vegan food could be delicious as well as being good for animals, health and the planet.  I hope we have achieved that.

Over the years, we worked with some wonderful colleagues and served some lovely customers – we seemed to attract the nicest people!  We learnt a lot about how to bring out the best in plant-based ingredients and we shared some of what we learnt in our cookery courses.

Of course, we’re in a very different culinary world now, particularly here in Bristol and I like to think we played our part in helping to make vegan normal! There is a wonderful choice of plant-based food out there and it is increasing rapidly. I don’t see the trend slowing down or stopping.  Even if you don’t see yourself going the full vegan, eating more vegetable and less animal makes sense in every way.

Having learnt so much, we are not going to disappear completely.  We will continue to share our knowledge and recipes through the Miller Green website. Eventually our entire repertoire – and more – will be there for the taking, along with hints and tips on getting the best out of plant-based ingredients. I also hope that we will be able to run the occasional course and supper club in the future as well. We’ll keep you posted.

Adam & Eve (closed)

7 Hope Chapel Hill, Hotwells, Bristol BS8 4ND

WE ARE VERY SAD TO ANNOUNCE

It is with a very heavy heart that I have to announce the imminent closure of the Adam and Eve. We have had some real issues over the last couple of months trying to keep the building and the equipment operating, which has cost us large unforeseen chunks of money. While we are hugely passionate about what we are doing in the Eve, there is only so long we can sustain spending such large amounts of cash on a building that is not ours and fixing equipment that is causing us to lose money on a week by week basis.

The support we have had in the Eve over the last 3 months has been nothing short of spectacular. We can’t thank everyone who has came down and used the place enough. The events have sold out, and the feedback we’ve had to the food has been amazing. We hope that this is not the end to what we are trying to achieve, just an interlude until we find a new premises. In the meantime, our head chef Lisa will be heading to Small Bar to take on a role there. So expect the vegan offering there to increase!

Our last day trading will be Sunday 3rd April.

Thanks again for all your support folks.

Dear lovely customers

It is with HUGE sadness that we have to announce that The Black Sheep Cafe will be closing its doors for the last time on Saturday the 4th of June (this coming Saturday).

This has been a very difficult decision but due to our financial situation, it has become impossible to continue.

We have done our very best to provide Gloucester Road with a vegan/vegetarian venue and have supported our fellow Gloucester Road traders when buying ingredients wherever possible. Unfortunately, our costs are simply too high and we cannot afford to continue without making sacrifices in quality or ignoring our principles of not advocating animal cruelty.

There are not enough words to say thank you…for all your support!!

It has been incredibly nice meting all of you lovely people and we can definitely say that we have made some great friends along the way.

It is not the end! We hope to do a few festivals this summer and lots more next year. We have a couple of weddings and catering events lined up and are on the lookout for more opportunities should any of you like us to help with your events.
For our last week, we have decided to go 100% vegan, to show our respect for Bristol’s vegan community, especially for those of you that come week in and week out to support us.
We would like to invite you all to a good by for now event at 17:30 on Saturday the 4th of June for a little send off.
Lots of love,

Mayte and Andy,
The Black Sheep

Hello Food Fighters! We will be holding our Last Hurrah at Drink Moor Beer on SATURDAY 22 AUGUST 2015 as part of the Bristol Eats yard party!

We’ve had such a brilliant time being The Mighty Food Fight on our food truck René, but the time has come for us to look for new things, and TMFF won’t be continuing in it’s present format after that day.

We want to say MASSIVE THANK YOU to all our lovely loyal customers and everyone who has supported us, particularly when René was poorly. You’re the best!

The Mighty Food Fight is Hannah, Isabel and René, a 1978 Citroen HY van. We met in BRISTOL through of a shared love of punk rock and vegan FOOD, we cooked a lot together and then fell in love with René. The food we make is from PLANTS, ones that are good for you and taste amazing. Eating them helps you feel MIGHTY. We love our BALLS because they are fried but packed full of healthy, flavoursome things. Our DONUTS are an icing-drenched treat to get your teeth into. We are fighting to feed YOU in the best way possible: vegan ingredients, awesome tastes, a little bit deli and lots of smiles.

 

Roll For The Soul (closed)

2 Quay Street, Bristol BS1 2JL

rfts menu

We’re sorry to say that we’ll be closing at the end of 2017 (Sat Dec 23rd). It’s still some way off at the time of writing (September), but now that the decision’s been made we want to let people know.

We have a choice about whether to renew our lease for another five years from early 2018. After looking at how likely it is that we’d be able to run a viable business throughout that time, we’ve decided: not likely enough to be worth the risk.

If we call time at the end of the year, we can go out making sure that everyone gets paid for their work, all our suppliers get paid, and we don’t leave a mess behind. We can do it with dignity and on our terms. If we commit to another five years, it may well not be so clean and tidy.

There are lots of reasons why we’ve reached this conclusion, but the simplest explanation is that it’s become more and more difficult to be profitable. We’ve looked at lots of things that we could do to make more money, or spend less. But it’s difficult to see a solution that avoids compromises we don’t want to make.

We’re so grateful for the support we’ve had over the last four years. It’s been a humbling and joyful experience to meet so many great people, to have so many people help us out, and to be part of an enormous, diverse and wonderful network of individuals and organisations who stand for something better than profit-at-all-costs. We’ll try to thank as many of you as we can in person over the coming months.

So we’ll be gone from Quay Street come Christmas. At the moment it’s our intention to continue as normal until then, but that may change as people find other work. We’ll keep you posted.

We’d really love these last few months to be fun and full of bikes, talks, workshops, music and all the other stuff that brings people together under our roof. It’s sad to be going, but it’s good to have been here, so we’d like to celebrate that. Please join in if you’d like to.

Roll for the Soul is a not-for-profit bike café, workshop and event space.  We have a cafe and workshop side by side, so you can get a good feed, a good coffee, and get your bike fixed up all at the same time.

Our light, bright, licensed cafe offers healthy, hearty vegetarian and vegan food from good sources at good prices. We’re not totally organic (although all our dairy and many of our other ingredients are) or local (although many of our suppliers are, including our good friends at East Bristol Bakery and Edible Futures, both of whom deliver by bike). But we do take pride in working with suppliers who share our values and avoiding those who don’t. The standard menu is here, but we have a range of specials every day too.
