February 10, 2022

Eating out as a student can be tricky sometimes when you’re trying to save cash for essentials. That’s why we have put together a list of restaurants running student offers in our hometown of Bristol. Leeds & Manchester students watch this space…

Baba Ganoush

If you’re in St.Pauls, it's worth giving Baba Ganoush a try, it’s a vegetarian & vegan specialist cafe that also serves organic juices. Renowned for its Jerusalem falafel mixes and wraps, you can get an entire plate here for £7.50! Another thing worth mentioning is that Baba Ganoush have been doing constant deals across their Facebook offering things like large wraps at 2.99 for anyone who likes their page & posts, so don’t sleep on these offers. Check out their page now to see what they have on.

Three Brothers Burgers

If you’re looking for something greasy round the centre it's definitely worth checking out Three Brothers Burgers. Not only do they do some of the dirtiest and fattest burgers in the city, they also have a great offer for students. Show your student card and receive a burger (meat or vegan) and a portion of skin-on fries for only a fiver!


If you’re in the mood for some pastry, don't miss out on Pieminster in Stokes Croft. It’s the home of their award-winning ethically produced pies where they also offer 2 for 1 cocktails at happy hour. There’s a great range of pies with a load of vegan options too. Their meal deal allows you to get a pie and 2 sides for just over a tenner! Pies and cocktails… What's not to love?

Al Bab Mansour

Looking for something new to try? Why not have a go at some Morrocan food from Al Bab Mansour, a small spot in St. Nicks with a beautifully decorated interior and great prices. The food comes with an arrangement of spices and they have some amazing vegetarian and vegan options too. This place is perfect for when you’re getting bored of English scran.

Pizza Bianchi

Pizza Bianchi is part of the Bianchis Group of restaurants and is based on the triangle at the top of Park street. Their menus consist of old school Italian style pizzas and authentic Italian  gelato. With a great location and vibe as well as an elegant menu it's a great place to meet up with mates or even a cheeky date. Every Monday you can take advantage of their deal of a 12” margherita pizza and an aperol spritz for only £10… But if you’re happy to splash a bit more you should definitely give their espresso martini milkshake a try!
