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.

Best deli in Bristol!

Fantastic food. Sometimes it is a little pressurised to get your order in but the food is really fantastic. I used to live on the square just around the corner and it was my 'go to' lunch place. I visit every time I am back in Bristol!

We called in during our "Clifton Squares" walk - which is well worth doing - free guide on the internet. Lovely setting. Soup freshly made and well served with chunks of bread and butter. Drinks well made. The deli had a lovely range of food - some of which you only see in other shops as a Christmas range.

We went for lunch inbetween Christmas and New Year, and I have to say it was one of the nicest sandwiches I've had for a very long time. The bread was freshly baked and all the ingredients of the sandwiches were top quality. The staff were also friendly .Would certainly make a special journey just for the sandwiches .

We already had a wedding cake but we also wanted a cheese wedding cake for those guests with less of a sweet tooth. The staff in the shop were extremely helpful and David at Arch House Deli worked with us to provide us with our favourite cheeses, within a budget we could afford and in a very tight timescale before...

We used Arch House to supply Christmas hampers to send to some clients. We like to support local business and Arch House put together a Hamper full of locally produced goodies for us from a wide range of carefully sourced produce. Crucially we could also personalise each one. They were very helpful, the Hampers were all sent out on time... More

We were looking for somewhere to eat late afternoon and found that many places in the area had stopped serving. We stumbled across this place which looked wonderful as a deli and found that they had a seperate dining area out the back. As there was only one other couple there and none of the staff had said anything to... More

Great first impression and it doesn't disappoint. We had an enjoyable light lunch in the cafe followed by a browse around the shop full of appealing products that you didnt think you wanted, but will not be able to resist. We bought rose and lavender water for cake making. It wasn't on the shopping list, but had to have it!... More

I visited for lunch with a work colleague in October 2015. The service received during our visit was friendly so a good start. I opted for a “Chilli Billy” sandwich (roasted red peppers, goats cheese, sweet chilli jam and rocket leaves). The size of the sandwich (as you can see from the picture) was massive! The sandwich had lovely fresh... More
