Went there for a cup of tea, we waited ages for the tea, when it arrived it was the weakest tea we had ever had, and they got the order wrong, no Earl Grey as ordered! Will not be going back. The staff didn't seem interested.

On a nice day this is the perfect place to sit outside and watch the world go by. Inside you'll find a smorgasbord of tastey delights to choose from and they have an excellent menu of teas as well as the usual lattes, cappuccinos, etc. The only thing I'd change is to have waiter service outside. It isn't a big... More

A very hot day and we discovered the Arch House Deli. The shade attracted us but the food captured us. Two New Yorker sandwiches but with ciabatta as they had ran out of the sandwich bread, turned out to be a lovely alternative. Also had stuffed vine leaves and chick pea salad. All very good and with 2 soft drinks... More

The cheese was packaged well on collection & they provided labels for each cheese to... More

I needed to pull together x90 welcome hampers for event delegates for a large client of ours for their global leadership conference. I approached the Arch House Deli with a budget and a brief of sourcing a verity locally sourced produce to put into our hampers and David could not have been more helpful. They even sent samples to our... More

I've been coming to arch house for a couple of years as the coffee is always lovely and the toast is great. Like the little cafe in back and the option to eat outside if the weather is nice. But recently, C. Village has seen an upsurge of new cafes with lovely food and now arch house has some serious... More

Organised a group of nine work colleagues to attend a popular cheese & wine evening at the Arch House Deli. Very enjoyable evening with six considered cheese and wine pairings. Would highly recommend.

From California, USA, we ordered a last minute gift hamper for our wonderful colleagues who are located in Bristol. Dave was exceptionally responsive on an overnight request and helped me to arrange two wonderful same-day deliveries (confirming even before I had eaten breakfast in CA!) My colleagues have received the baskets and have been praising their contents, so we are... More

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.
