For the love of food

This Valentine's Day, whoever you choose to celebrate with, we believe it's all about the food.

Whether you like to get dressed up and go out for dinner anywhere near Bristol, get creative in the kitchen, or order in, our expert Chef has some inspiration for you.


1. Dine in at home on February 14th


Our Head Chefs are the masters of their craft. From creating the most exquisite original dishes, to their meticulous care in perfecting every step and presenting it beautifully on a plate. Lots of people love to do just that in the kitchen at home, taking pride in every step.

A special event deserves a special menu and Valentine’s Day is no different. Here are a few of our favourite dishes to cook at home this Valentine’s Day.

--  Try out our recipe for cod cheeks, peas, seafood black pudding & prosciutto or spice things up with a healthy chicken curry recipe --

-- Get creative with our recipe for vegan wild mushroom risotto --

-- And why not have a little fun with nourishing platter ideas or perfect pancakes? --



2. Book a table in Failand (near Bristol)


If you’re looking to dine out this Valentine’s Day then a steak dinner always comes in top as the most popular choice and as a result, most Valentine’s Day set menus offer just that. Other popular favourites include fish, curry and pasta or risotto dishes.

Our Brixham crab and Atlantic prawns, lemon & dill yoghurt dressing, served with croutes is a dish that melts in the mouth!

Our delicious trio of chocolate: dark chocolate mousse, white chocolate cheesecake and milk chocolate parfait is the perfect treat to end the meal.

Then there’s the traditional Valentine’s inspired afternoon tea – here at Symonds bistro and restaurant near Bristol we are proud of our Valentine's inspired menu and can't wait for you to sample it.

3. Takeaway


Of course, we all live busy lives and not everyone loves to cook (or perhaps you spend a lot of time in the kitchen and just fancy a night off!), in which case there is no shame in treating yourself to a takeaway.

That could be one of the typical takeaway favourites… fish & chips, Chinese, Indian, Thai, fried chicken, pizza...!

Have you considered the supermarket alternatives?

Top tip: Often the supermarket ‘Meals for two’ are tastier, healthier and more affordable than the fast-food equivalent.

Try Tapas for two from Sainsbury’s or Waitrose's selection of meals for two.



Cheers to that!

Don't forget to accompany your dish with something refreshingly ice-cold.

Perhaps our pimp your prosecco tips will leave you inspired!
