Thanks for this SupperThyme!Thank You 40 Alfred Place – The Perfect Pop Up Venue in Bristol
In November 2012 SupperThyme Bristol launched our Pop-Up Restaurant using 40 Alfred Place. After 2 years of discussion, deliberation and distractions it took the discovery of 40 Alfred Place to give us the perfect place to start. We kept hearing about this lovely private hire venue from the many people who had visited this central venue for a Christmas Party, Pop Up Restaurant Night or Supper Club.
We checked the place out and it soon became apparent that this venue fitted the bill perfectly! Comfortably seating just shy of 40 covers over two well presented floors, meant we could serve enough covers to ensure a viable and managable night of pop up dining. Many other venues for hire in Bristol were only available for large private functions and corporate events or were by no means as accommodating to our needs.
The venue is clean and fresh with a modern yet rustic feel. If you are in need of a venue to hire in Bristol as a pop up restauranteur, private caterer or party thrower we would highly recommend 40 Alfred Place . The venue is available to hire all day as standard, allowing use of the fantastic open kitchen space to prepare and set up the tables/decorations. The kitchen is equipped with all the basics such as pots and pans, chopping boards and all the other essential preparation equipment. The tables are plain with all the necessary plates, bowls, platters and cutlery. Luxuries such a glass washer, ice machine and lots of refrigeration for drinks and storage was great! Not to mention a proper 2 Group Espresso machine (which as a trained Barista I was able to utilise)! A full itinerary was sent to us at time of hire to make it clear if we needed to get other bits in advance. The only thing we needed to bring was wine glasses, although there are plenty of other glasses behind the bar.
The venue has an alcohol licence which was also handy for us.
SupperThyme is the brainchild of Rich and Dan, two young foodies from Bristol looking to stamp their mark on the local pop up food scene. After the success of our launch night at 40 Alfred Place we hope to return for a series of Pop Up dining events in 2013 both in Kingsdown and elsewhere, We already have our next night planned in 40 Alfred Place December to run a Private Pop Up for a local company’s Christmas party. You can keep up to date with our next Pop Up’s by following SupperThymeBristol on Facebook or @supperthymechef on Twitter. If you are having an event at 40 Alfred Place or looking to hire a venue in Bristol and would like to enquire about a Private Pop Up, please contact Rich or Dan via email@example.com
We’ve got some great pop-ups and events coming up including the 4th pop-up from Tara Hofman of Tara’s Table, she’ll be hosting ‘Taramasalata’ a Greek Extravaganza on the 6th and 7th September. Tara’s wildly successful previous pop-ups at 40 Alfred Place have been Chic & Unique, the vintage styled pop-up, Tara Masala, a night of Curry Couture and ¡Tapástico! an evening of authentic Spanish tapas.
It’s the first birthday celebration event of 40AP regulars Dine With I on the 5th of September, Carlton and Tim will be throwing (obviously in a perfectly crafted and meticulous fashion) another of their incredibly popular supper club pop-ups – Happy Birthday fellas’.
Come to think of it, that sort of makes it our 1st birthday too, so happy birthday us!
Coming soon are a regular series of evenings and weekends from Guerrilla Burger with some of their Slider perfection – more details on this soon, stay tuned!
It’s Friday and the weekend shines brightly on the rapidly shortening horizon. So, how does one celebrate this in style? Why, by having brilliant bacon buns delivered to your door. Yep, that’s right; we’ll deliver breakfast baps by Bapmobile to your home or place of work.

We use local dry cure streaky bacon from the fantastic Powells of Olveston, organic eggs from The Story, amazing spanish chorizo from Valsabor. The bread is overnight white from Herbert’s – because it’s substantial yet soft.

Don’t forget, now that Mum’s Cafe is of long term residence here at 40 Alfred Place, you can now enjoy your favourite Friday bacon bunnage with the best coffee in Bristol from 8am in the comfort of our Cafe. Eat in, take away, or delivered; what more could you possibly ask for?!
I’m not a big fan of the stuff usually as I feel it to be an overpriced over-hyped palate-greaser. The Valley Smoke House smoked salmon however is a different proposition altogether. It is soft, light, delicately smoked and quite simply … utterly delicious.
We’re serving it with on sourdough toast with labneh (homemade middle eastern soft cheese) roast beetroot a few capers and fresh grated horseradish finished with a good squeeze of lemon juice, black pepper and a generous sprinkling of dill leaves.
If you are not aware of the work of Extract then may we suggest that you fill that gaping hole in your life and familiarise yourself with some of the best beans your ever likely to get your hands on.
The entrepreneurial band have been diligently beavering away perfecting their art whilst largly keeping their heads below the radar. With a steadily growing band of (fanatically) loyal customers and a handful of cafes they’ve been striving out west for several years now but the time has finally come and they are emerging from their cocoon in a blaze of glory.
Thanks for the hits guys!
