Food & Drink On Boats in Bristol
Dine with a difference on board one of the converted boats that are moored on Bristol’s Floating Harbour. One of the most exquisite restaurants in Bristol is The Glassboat, which is a real treat on a visit to Bristol. Just a little bit further along the quayside is Three Brothers Burgers, an American dining feast with a roaring fire in the winter, outdoor seating for the summer and an ever changing craft beer and cider selection. Next door on Welsh Back is the specialist cider boat, The Apple; another vibrant outdoor venue that comes alive with outdoor drinkers.
Sample Bristol’s maritime heritage on board The Matthew, which offers a very traditional British feed of fish and chips while you sail up out of the Floating Harbour to the River Avon.
On the opposite side of the harbour from the ss Great Britain, on Hotwell Road, is The Grain Barge, a converted 1930s engineless barge run by Bristol Beer Factory. On a nice day you will find diners and drinkers on the top desk marvelling at the panoramic views of the waterways.
If you’re looking for a late night venue to dance, try The Thekla, a converted cargo ship moored on Mud Dock or head to Under the Stars for cinema nights and tapas under fairy lights.
