The team from Aztec Hotel & Spa joined forces with local Bristol charity Street Life on Saturday 14th September to serve a delicious meal to the homeless community in the city.

This marked the seventh time the hotel has worked with the charity since 2017 and the third time they have provided the food as well as serving the meals.

The hotel’s kitchen team prepared 180 portions of a hearty beef stew and mashed potatoes followed by a choice of either profiteroles or fresh fruit salad. While the chefs moved on to prepare dishes for the hotel’s restaurant, The Curious Kitchen, seven members of staff from across the hotel headed out with other Street Life volunteers to serve the meals to the community.

For over 20 years, Street Life has been providing hot meals, drinks, soup, cold meal packs and clothing on the streets of Bristol. Operated by City Church, the weekly community project recognises the importance of helping those in the city who do not have the same access to facilities as others. Members of the local community, businesses and schools support the charity by volunteering their Saturday evening.

The beef stew was a welcomed new dish for the charity and was incredibly well received. One recipient said: “This is the best meal I’ve ever had.”

Gareth Ireland, general manager of the Aztec Hotel & Spa, said:

“Our aim when we started working with Street Life was to build an ongoing relationship with them. They provide such an invaluable service to the city and we are honoured to be able to assist in any way we can. The team all love being involved and giving something back to help such a worthy cause. We are looking forward to being able to work with Street Life for many years to come.”

The Thwaites shire horses visit the Aztec Hotel & Spa, Bristol

A pair of shire horses visited the Aztec Hotel & Spa yesterday as part of an event to showcase the hotel’s cooperation with local suppliers.

The award-winning Thwaites Brewery shire horses were the centre of attention at the hotel in the Aztec West Business Park, where stalls from companies including Hobbs House Bakery (Chipping Sodbury) and Pieminister (Bristol) offered free samples to visitors.

The horses also visited the Lodge on the Park hotel and Starbucks coffee shop, also in Aztec West.

A spokesperson for the Aztec Hotel said:

“We’re proud to support local suppliers and work with them throughout the seasons as we develop our menus so we can showcase all that’s great about the south west.”
