I've been going here for years. One of the best delicatessens in the city - and make good snacks. It's a good place if you're looking for something a little unusual.

The deli has a small cafe with around 6 tables at the back of the shop. We had coffee (good) and cakes (average and little dry). In a location overloaded with cafes this place needs to do a little better to get my attention.

I live in Australia and needed to be able to send a food hamper to dear family friends in Bristol who had just lost their father. None of the traditional hampers on line were appropriate so I called Arch house direct and spoke to Josh. he was so amenable and we collaboratively worked out a perfect option over the phone...

This is a great deli from the friendly staff to the freshly prepared foods. If you fancy a sandwich they are huge, real door stops! I had the soup which was lovely and spicy served with three generous slices of bread. My husband had quiche and an assortment of salads. The carrot salad was delicious. Great place to stop for...

Bought in Arch House deli lunches for three events. Really complicated food requirements from different people, and they coped with that brilliantly. The food was fresh and very high standard, delivered promptly. Excellent service; the visitors were really impressed by the quality.

A beautiful deli full of yummy treats with a cute coffee shop area to match. A nice outing but very popular so choose an off peak time if possible!

Arch House Deli catered our 30th Birthday celebration at Amoeba round the corner - food was excellent especially the cheeses and everything was very easy, they helped us carry everything round!

I strongly recommend their cheese and wine evenings. I would definitely come more often for breakfast if they did hot cooked food (eggs etc.). Great sandwiches, but slightly disappointing choice of breads. Overall a cute deli/cafe.

Lunch prior to theatre with friends. A real gem this place, off the beaten track in beautiful Clifton Village. Great coffee, great lunch choice. We had pâté with 3 different types of bread, vegetarian quiche with salad, celeriac, parsnip & apple soup with crusty bread and dry cured beef sandwich packed with goodies on thick granary bread. All absolutely excellent.... 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.
