Comments from Our Customers

3rd Party reviews are also available on all the main review websites.

“Initial impression, on entry, is that of a sophisticated food emporium that would not be out of place in Paris or Rome. The food on offer leans strongly to local produce. Value for money is outstanding and range and quality of the food is exceptional and the deli has generated a strong, local following.”

“It always makes our weekend when in Bristol. The shelves are jam packed with amazing goodies with so many local artisan small family producers being supported - so nice to see compared with supermarkets these days. And you can't leave without trying their fabulous cakes in the café and beautiful range of loose leaf teas. The staff are super friendly, even the weekend students seem to have a strong passion for what they're selling you - great place, just wish it was closer and we could visit more often! The owners clearly love this place, and so do we!”

“It's a really vibrant, nice, light and friendly place to meet people and have some food and a coffee. I've had a few meetings in there and they are very welcoming and the products they sell are very nice.”

“Great produce and lovely helpful staff.”

“Superb in every way.”

“Always something different to sample/purchase in shop. Excellent 'stop-over on the way to Devon/Cornwall' for lunches using their own ingredients. Very friendly, 'non-pushy' but enthusiastically informative staff (esp. cheeses). Between Birmingham and Brixham - there is
nothing to 'touch' them! More than well worth the short detour from the M5.”

“Personable service and a great selection of goodies!!”

“Beautiful atmosphere, friendly advice, fantastic cafe, good selection with new additions to keep me coming back. Love it”

“Friendly staff serving a delicious variety of fresh food from home-made cakes to chorizo stews.  They also stock the best chocolate in the world! Excellent range of other foodie treats range from top-notch preserves, a brilliant selection of loose spices and quality local cheese counter.”

“Great food and great service!”

“The dedication and enthusiasm of the team is great to see.”

“They provide great products, have fun tasting events which I love, and excellent staff who are very knowledgeable, nothing is too much trouble for them, and it‘s in a great location. One of the best I have visited in the UK. Can't wait to come back and visit again.”

“I love the range of foods, the passion of the owners to make it such a lovely experience. Fab place.”

“Arch House Deli, what can I say? An exquisite selection for the palate, super friendly staff, and a very well presented shop front with a comfortable eating area at the back. All in all a most pleasant experience. Well worth a visit if you are in the Bristol area.”

“Very friendly staff who take time out to talk through the finer points about the produce and are very informative. The atmosphere at the Deli is always pleasant and welcoming; with a cafe that offers a good range of dishes.”

“The combination of products is a good enough reason alone but when you add in the helpful, informed attitude of the staff it's just a great experience.”

“Arch House Deli offers a fantastic range of specialist foods and the owners really set out to provide individual service. I love the passion and knowledge that they have about all their products and their desire to find the right foods for my needs. Whether it's a hamper for a
special occasion, or that particular wine to compliment the cheese of choice, they know the choice to make. Big Up for the Arch house.”

“The Arch House deli is my favourite due to the friendly and knowledgeable staff and a wide selection. The cheese counter offers cheeses which I cannot find elsewhere.”

“Friendly staff great selection of quality food and in a nice area of Bristol. What more could you want.”

“The staff are amazing, so friendly and helpful, with a vast knowledge of their produce. They make the best coffees in town, and the array of foods on offer do not compare with anything else I have seen! The bosses are very friendly and funny, all set in a beautiful old building in a lovely part of Bristol.”

“Great staff that go beyond what 1 expect for an exceptional service, they listen to my needs and often come up with a great idea that I hadn't even thought of. Products that go beyond fresh, tasty & high quality, my taste buds feel well travelled without leaving Bristol. Funky location that is a real pleasure to frequent. Owners who are truly passionate about what they do.”

“The owners make shopping in the Arch House deli a delight, and the quality of their food is outstanding.”

“Lots of choice and fantastic quality.”

“Not only are the staff very cheerful, their knowledge and enthusiasm are second to none. They stock a good range of products, and instead of the obligatory dry brownie usually on offer to those on a gluten free diet, Arch House Deli provides fabulous slices of polenta cake in a range of flavours, such as apple and rose. They also serve rustic sandwiches (true doorstoppers!) and a wonderful deli platter, the components of which you pick and choose yourself. Truly lovely.”

“Simply the best. Good quality, wholesome food.”

“Good cheese, lovely people.”

“I just love the food!”

“Best cheeses, great service and involvement in the community!”

“Amazing produce, excellent customer care, a little treasure tucked away up in Clifton.  One of my favourite places to go and every time I go back I have to let some new person know how amazing it is!”

“Because the food is lush and fresh and ever changing although the old favourite are always there.  The staff are courteous and care about the products – if they can’t answer a question they endeavour to find out.  The decor is delightful and the café a treat.  I recommend their polenta cake – but not if there’s none left for me!”

“The best service ever, staff are friendly and knowledgeable.  Excellent!”

“A total delight.  Great, varied selection of delicious food, beautifully presented with real flair and creativity.  Terrific selection of imaginative homemade food served in a comfy café behind the deli.  Staff are always friendly and expert.  This deli has brought new life and energy to the whole area and is now a hub for the local community – without a doubt Bristol’s finest deli.  I defy anyone to walk past and not be tempted to enter into this splendid emporium where their culinary imagination is sure to be fired.  We love this place.”
