The Strawberry Thief


The Strawberry Thief is an award-winning independent beer bar in Bristol's old city. Inspired by continental style bars they stock over seventy of the most famous and revered Belgian and UK craft beers and ciders, fine wines, and premium spirits. With relaxed and friendly table-service they are a special haven where life can slow down.

The food ethos is to prepare fresh dishes that match perfectly with beer, using high quality local seasonal produce from suppliers that share their passion to be a sustainable business. As an inclusive bar they welcome all with a large offering of vegan and gluten-free dishes, as well as beers.

Their home, Broad Street, was a creative hub of printmaking, a theme that inspired the decor and ambience of the bohemian surroundings. The name originates from the William Morris print that adorns the bar, once printed in the stunning Edward Everard Building directly across the street. You may well recognise the interior and the surroundings from recent filming, including the BBC drama The Trial of Christine Keeler, which featured the bar throughout as it was the set for the café in the programme.

The Strawberry Thief is available for private hire, it has seating for 70 and can be arranged in a number of ways to accommodate parties, networking events, workshops, and meetings. They can arrange all refreshments and catering requirements as well as entertainment to make sure you are entirely satisfied with the experience.
