What they say about us


"Honestly cannot rate this fantastic bar highly enough, exceptional beer selection, food that puts a smile on your face and all really well paired together with a vibrant atmosphere. Happy friendly staff, attentive table service and ultimately made to feel very safe in unknown times. 10/10 can’t wait to come again.”

TripAdvisor, September 2020

"Our second visit this month. The team at the Strawberry Thief are amazing and all working really hard to see this gem of a bar through difficult times. I love being able to get delicious Belgian beers on draught, along with bottled gems that have become firm favourites. The menu is delicious, everything prepared to perfection.”

"My favourite bar in Bristol! Always a fantastic selection of craft and Belgian beer. The atmosphere is always great and the staff super friendly. Even in the current strange times we still had a fantastic visit!”

“A chill, friendly bar in the heart of Bristol that feels like you are in Ghent. Not sure how they manage that, but the beers are good, the staff friendly and helpful. It just feels like a real Belgian cafe.”
