UK Deli of the Year 2011/2012 and Bristol Best Deli 2012 & 2013. We were chosen for the emphasis we place on having friendly approachable staff, our ethos on using local products, hosting regular tasting events and on stocking interesting, exciting and most importantly, tasty deli food. We also have a cafe as well as outside seating and are open 7 days a week, so next time you are in Clifton Village come along to the UK's top deli and try one of our great sandwiches or why not share a tasting platter of olives, charcuterie, artisan cheeses & breads with a glass of one of our favourite wines.

I ordered a picnic hamper from the deli for a birthday treat. The staff were very responsive and helpful, and flexible about swapping foods we couldn't eat for favourites and the result was a selection of really delicious salads, cakes and cheeses. My partner particularly likes chorizo and there were some nice touches around this theme. As a special treat... More

I live in Colombia and ordered a Bristol & Bath hamper for my daughter's birthday. The quality of the contents was a complete delight, full of new discoveries and tastes - it made my daughter's day!

We were in Bristol again this week, so decided to call in to our favourite deli. This time we had a selection of Tapas, which were delicious. The portions were as ever, a bit large, so we asked for a doggy bag which came back with beautifully wrapped items inside which we enjoyed later. Again, it was a lovely experience... More

We visited here to get lunch on a day out to Clifton. The stock of produce is fantastic and I could easily spend a lot of money here. However the primary reason to visit was lunch and it was not that great. I had a 'New Yorker' that was served on bread that was very 'Chorleywood' for my taste and... More

Recently I bought a couple of hampers from Arch House's website for a gift. When I called them a few hours later to check on delivery times, I asked David if the hamper contents could be customised, which he was very happy to help with. Not only was David very helpful with customising the hampers, he even arranged a special... More

Arch House made a wonderful, customized hamper for a friend with a new baby. They were very accommodating and responsive, and made her day!

this place is great because it has all the deli finds you hear about and need to cook with, but can never manage to locate in a big supermarket (or if you do, its of poor quality). Great location, great place.

I have always enjoyed visiting this deli. It has a good range of items which change with the seasons, including fantastic fresh bread, oils and jams (recommended!). I have also enjoyed some 'proper' sandwiches here for a lunchtime with family or friends. Do not be put off by the slightly steep price, these sandwiches are a good meal in themselves.... More

We enjoyed our visit here for a coffee late morning on a Sunday. All the other restaurants and cafes close by were busy but we were the only people there when we arrived. Pleasant service and a nice feeling about the place with free wifi. Only reason to mark it down a notch at 4 rather than 5 is it... More
