The Wellhead Bar


The Wellhead is a unique café and cocktail bar venue located in Finzels Reach, overlooking the Floating Harbour. Previously a brewery, the Wellhead has a rich and fascinating history. It combines the old and the new with original features and historic charm of the old building and a buzzing contemporary atmosphere that complements the neighbouring bars and craft breweries. Serving hot drinks and snacks during the daytime, and classic cocktails and drinks inspired by Bristol’s rich history in the evening, the Wellhead is the perfect venue for any time of day.
