Having a relative in St Michael's hospital up the hill meant that Penfolds turned into an ideal place for lunch and breakfast. All of the meals we had - eggs benedict, English breakfast, bacon and egg baps and the coffee were excellent. The staff were...More

I go here most days for coffee. It’s friendly, ha a great menu and a lovely atmosphere. Their breakfasts and lunches are great, their cakes are 5* and the pricing is fair. NHS discount too! Would recommend to anyone.

Perfectly placed opposite Bristol’s main hospital, we had an hour and a half between appointments. Shuffled across the road and found an oasis of calm and brilliant food. Lots of areas yet to explore, will definitely be back for a return visit.

On our recent trip to Bristol, Penfold's Kitchen was just around the corner from our hotel, so we popped in for breakfast/brunch twice. The food, service and atmosphere is great. Thoroughly recommend if you're in the area.

Large bowls of souper soup! So big that we had them reheated as we took our time chatting! Helpful staff. Nice atmosphere. Would take friends.

Called in by chance after a visit to Bristol Hospital for a coffee. Lovely friendly place ... lovely bacon rolls. Clearly a favourite with NHS staff but recommend if you are in that part of Bristol searching for a short coffee break

Popped here for a snack as it’s near the BRI where I was visiting. It was about to close so I went for a flatbread to take away, which was good. They are open seven days a week. Friendly and efficient service and a nice...More
