Description: 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. Gift hampers are also a speciality of the deli and are a great way to let somebody know that you're thinking of them, whatever the occasion. At Arch House Deli we have a range of gift hampers to cater for different tastes and budgets. All hampers are individually made and gift wrapped to order.

I found this place on trip advisor and wanted to give it a try. We came on a weekend away to Bristol for lunch. Amazing! We had the charcuterie and cheese platters they were outstanding. Quality produce and friendly staff 5 out of 5

I go quite regularly because it's really close. Unfortunately, I often want a sandwich but they run out of brown bread at lunchtime and other ingredients through the afternoon, so I basically don't expect to get what I want unless I'm there by mid day.

I've been living in Bristol for just a couple of months and the Arch House is becoming an addiction. A beautiful Deli in its own right, on a warm afternoon, the cakes and sandwiches produced here, as well as the coffee, are seriously top notch. Not badly priced either. Try the selection of interesting lemonade if coffee isn't your bag!

We bought our wedding cheese cake from David at the Arch House Deli. The cheese was tastier than I could possibly have imagined, every bite just yummy. And the cake looked fabulous! David and his team were delightful and friendly throughout, especially during the fun and informative taster session. To top it all the cheese cake was cheaper than anywhere... More

We asked Arch House Deli to cater for our wedding; providing 150 picnics to a farm in Wiltshire. Having made initial contact via email, Debbie and David could not have been more helpful and accommodating. They were happy to accommodate some of our stranger requests regarding exactly how we wanted things to be and worked with us to come up... More

The Arch House Deli provided a great buffet for a business event we held in Bristol. The service was faultless and the team adapted the menu to seamlessly accomodate those with special requirements. The food was excellent and plentiful - great quality, variation and value for money.

Beautiful Deli. Interesting foods, nice selection of cheeses and meats. Great for food lovers who want to pick up some nice treats & gifts for friends/family. Very busy outside no tables available. I had ordered a sandwich £3.90 not too expensive especially in Clifton Village! (you could pay the same or even more in other chain cafes near by) They... More

I have visited the cafe several times now and always find the food and shop lovely however the cafe service is usually poor. Often the tables have not been wiped down between customers and at my most recent visit the coffee spilled over onto the saucer when it was placed down onto the table with no apology or new saucer...

Great little deli, just want to eat everything in the shop! Lots of good options for foodie presents and a great, very reasonable option for lunch. The platters are great and definitely big enough to share between 2. Nice space to eat indoors and out.

Came across this by chance at lunchtime, and so glad we did. It was great to sit outside in the sun and enjoy some wonderful food. I had the New Yorker sandwich - thick slabs of bread with a large filling of pastrami, cheese and the usual. The platters looked great and the food for sale in the shop was... More
