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.

fantastic bread, beautiful ham, and cheeses to die for. nice touch having bottles of tap water available in the cafe. Savoury pies delicious. Seemed to be quite short staffed on the day we visited but worth the wait when our meals arrived. The home made breads were amazing and a fantastic array of gifts and foodstuffs available in the shop... More

Pea and spinach soup, served with herb and olive bread with butter and olive oil on a wooden plank was delicious this lunchtime. The café are is small and you use counter service when ordering. Staff are friendly and efficient. Take your wallet if shopping in the gourmet deli but you will not be disappointed.

Great lunch. All freshly prepared and appetising. Could get carried away with purchases from the deli. Looked a great place to bring young children too, with their own special sized table

Visited the deli, ordered some soup. The soup arrived with two slices of bread. The soup was very very spicy, my friend and I could not eat any of it. It made your throat tight as you swallowed it. Not at all impressed. When i spoke to the waiter, he was very off, telling me that to him it was... More

Fast becoming my new favourite addiction. The place I bring friends and family when they come to visit me. An excellent spot for lunch (choose from enormous door-stopper sandwiches, incredible soups with fresh bread or rather moreish tarts with salad) or just to grab a coffee with a friend. It's not cheap, but you get what you pay for and... More

Arrived for lunch with my friend on Sunday and managed to get a seat inside! Lovely and cosy, and the food was great, we shared an English board and an Italian board and both were fantastic value for money as well as being absolutely amazing. The green pesto was to die for! Really can't wait to go back!

Lovely coffee, lemonade, good service and a great location for a spot of people watching. Warning, it is very tempting to spend a lot of money on posh cheese before you leave!

Stumbled across this lovely little deli whilst in Bristol last week. The vast array of products available to buy was mouthwatering and when we saw the little cafe at the back, just had to go and sample the goods! My husband had home made pork pie with coleslaw and little balsamic onions which was very tasty. I had a doorstep... More

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.
