FiSH Bristol


FiSH has reopened, subject to government restrictions. Please check directly on their website and/or social media channels for the latest updates.

The FiSH Restaurant, housed on a well-known barge in on Bristol's Welshback, is where you can come and sit by the water for a quick bowl of deep sea mussels or indulge in a longer sitting – think cracked Dorset Crab with mayonnaise, a fillet of plaice fried in breadcrumbs with tartare sauce or a sole grilled on the bone. You will be kept well refreshed by their central beer fountain providing cold local beers and a simple, coastal inspired, fish focused wine list, which leans towards the natural side of the vine.

The boat is one whole with two functionalities – a restaurant and a takeaway with a strong focus on fish and shellfish caught in the British Isles. The FiSH Restaurant is a relaxed, fun and theatrical affair. Bright coloured benches line the water fronted windows, there is that usual restaurant humm of music and chatter, only interrupted by a smash of a mallet and a glance at a crab claw gone rouge. Bibs and mallets are on call for these welcomed messy affairs.

Fish from Devon and Cornish markets, from healthy stocks, fried simply in local beer batter and served with hand cut chips, some mashed, minted peas and tartare sauce, or house made salmon fish cake or perhaps a cone of freshly fried squid and shrimps? As with the restaurant approach, the same applies to their FiSH takeaway bar…simplicity and excellence prevails when it comes to FiSH.
