Meet the Cash Point: The Tube Diner

Charlie from the Tube Diner, Bristol

We met up with Charlie from Arnos Vale’s Tube Diner to find out what makes them tick and why they love being a Bristol Pound Cash Point.

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.”

Paper £B1 Bristol Pound

“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!

    Loved the food we had at the diner last year, REALLY good dogs, and awesome repport with my two toddlera.

    However, as with the bar over the road, just a bit disappointed that (especially as a cashpoint (which I think is a more involved/flagship BP retailer)) there is no TXT2PAY option. The simplicity of TXT2PAY is a close second to the localness of the currency, and non TXT2PAY when yheres a TXT2PAY id always seems a bit poor.
