The Cottage Inn


With one of the best pub locations in Bristol, The Cottage Inn dates back to 1868 and was once used by merchants for storing Baltic timber for the growing number of businesses in the dock during that period.

Today, it’s a buzzing pub with stunning views across the harbour overlooking Clifton, and a menu offering delicious takes on pub classics with a focus on seasonal ingredients, fresh fish and seafood.

Inside, you’ll find a cosy atmosphere and beautiful interiors, with beautiful wooden flooring and comfy furnishings, and its dog-friendly throughout.

Outside, the exterior is almost entirely untouched from the mid-19th century, with a beautiful, dog-friendly, waterside beer garden.

Behind the bar, expect a wide selection of award-winning Butcombe beer and local cider, and an exciting wine and cocktail list.

Its close to popular Bristol attractions like M-Shed and the SS Great Britain, and a great stop off before Ashton Gate.
