The Tube Diner is a retro Airstream café based in the vibrant Paintworks creative quarter. They serve up delicious Buttermilk Pancakes, Breakfasts, Burgers, Chilli Dogs and scrumptious daily specials to hungry artists and families.
“Being a Bristol Pound Cash Point helps bring in new customers” explains Charlie, the friendly face behind Tube Diner. “It has increased footfall, especially on weekends.” They’re seeing more families and tourists through the door and enjoy the bustle of a busy weekend.
“Local families who frequent our Diner seem to be the most active users of the Bristol Pound. We feel that it’s important to support the Bristol Pound and it’s nice to be able to offer them to our customers.”
Anyone can exchange sterling for paper Bristol Pounds at the Tube Diner on the Bath Road – and Charlie’s a big fan of Bristol’s local currency.
“Bristol is a quirky, eccentric city and the Bristol Pound fits in nicely with that. We feel that Bristol Pounds work well with Bristol and its forward thinking approach.”
“We love the design of the paper £B1. The older generations refer back to the bygone era when £1 sterling notes were commonly used. It’s a great novelty!”
The Tube Diner spends Bristol Pounds by buying stock from other local business. They also reward themselves with a well-earned pint at a local bar who accepts them too!
