Evening dining at the Glassboat

About

The Glassboat restaurant is, and always has been, that rare combination of style and substance. Its unique waterside location and elegant interior are matched, if not surpassed by the quality of the dishes created on board.

The all-day menu that has wide appeal – a mix of sophisticated bistro classics inspired by the very best of British and French dishes.

Located on the floating harbour in the heart of Bristol, Glassboat affords spectacular views of the city and harbourside, with its unique interior carefully restored to make the most of the original polished wooden decks, sculptured oak and portholes.

Glassboat is a restaurant to suit any occasion, whether it's for lunch or dinner with friends, a business breakfast or lunch, or to celebrate a special occasion, the Glassboat is a unique and versatile choice.

They are also fully licensed to host weddings and civil ceremonies and we're only five minutes’ walk from the Bristol Registry Office.

Glassboat is open seven days a week for Breakfast, Lunch, Afternoons and Dinner - see the website for full details and sample menus.
