We're very spoilt in Keynsham and Saltford as to the number of places we can go out to eat. If you're out and about during the day and need a pit-stop, or if you can't be bothered to cook and even the thought of making a sandwich is too much, you can find a good lunch that pretty much caters for every taste.

The five eateries below are places where I have had a good meal. Do you agree? If not, where would you recommend?

Lock keeper - Keynsham Road – has a good selection of sandwiches, such as free range Cumberland sausage, and tuna and cheddar. They also do very nice ciabattas – I had the mozzarella and basil one – yum - and there's also cooked food if you are feeling ravenous. The staff are friendly, plus you have the benefit of a river view.

Brassmill – Avon Mill Lane, Keynsham - A pleasant pub with a rustic feel and a useful place to meet friends coming in on the train. It offers a good selection of tradition pub grub, such as calamari, steak and a mixed grill. I had the chicken pie and apple crumble, both of which were very tasty. Friendly staff too.

Jolly Sailor De La Warre Ct, Saltford – I had a delicious, utterly retro scampi and chips here recently. The specials menu had a lot of fish dishes on it when I was there, while the main menu has a good choice of hearty meals, such as spag bol and leek and wild mushroom crumble. It's nice to see a decent choice for vegetarians too – most places only offer risotto, which I'm personally not a fan of. Friendly staff, and a river view too.

The Riverside Inn, The Shallows, Saltford - has both a café and a restaurant, depending on what you want to eat and what time of day it is. There's a nice mix of pizzas, gourmet salads, burgers and steaks. I'm a big fan of moules mariniere, which they serve. One very intriguing item on the menu is kabanos carbonara – a mix of pasta and Polish sausage! I must try that when I next go. Nice staff and good atmosphere.

Coffee #1, Keynsham High Street – Really delicious coffee and a good selection of sandwiches and cakes. It's a useful addition to the High Street and a good place to meet friends or flop after shopping. The coffee aroma wafting outside from the shop is a real draw. They also serve Earl Grey tea – which makes me happy, as do the smiling staff!

    Nice choices. Coffee#1 is a great place to refuel after shopping.
