Went here for a pre theatre dinner with my partner. We had booked online before we arrived in Bristol and we were pleasantly surprised when we found it was actually a barge on the river! It is very quaint and definitely something different to your usual restaurants. We were welcomed a bit less than enthusiastically by a young gentleman but that was the only negative. The waitress that served us was very friendly and attentive. We ordered 6 tapas items and 2 drinks and the bill was £45, which wasn’t bad for the amazing quality of food we had. We had gambas, halloumi sticks, duck egg and black pudding bake, steak, crab croquettes and patatas bravas. It was all fresh and was amazing! Highly recommend this place.

Oh a sunny day... what an absolute pleasure. Being on the deck in the sunshine really was a treat. Reasonable selection of drinks, and the staff were very friendly.
I really liked the fact that they sold metal straws as an alternative to plastic. I bought a few because I struggle to find them normally so stocked up for myself and friends.
We ordered Tapas, it was okay, maybe a tad overpriced for the quality (for example, the patatas bravas really were potato with sauce- quite an easy dish to make so shame to charge ~6GBP for a mediocre dish...). If hungry however I would enjoy it.
One more thing- very difficult to monitor, but would be much nicer if no-one smoked on the boat.

Had a lunch here in April for two. Tried the padron peppers, aubergine, lamb skewers and some other dishes, probably 6 dishes between two of us.

Food was all good and tasty, tables are quite small but the staff were attentive and the restaurant was comfortable and warm on a chilly day.

Made a nice change from the regular chain restaurants, and would go back if I was in Bristol. Barge is a nice touch.

It’s always tricky finding somewhere different for the adults when you have children that won’t taste anything new! This place is perfect, bread and dips, pizza, kids sorted. Our selection was great, crab, calamari, steak and pizza the kids couldn’t manage all washed down with lovely cocktails I had their own variation of a Long Island ice tea which was good. For a change too much for me to manage, great quality food and fast friendly service couldn’t fault it. X

Just finished a bar fit out in Bristol, so got wife down for opening night, went for a few beers elsewhere and came across this pub/barge, very nice atmosphere, fab cider and a lovely spot to sit outside and chill, try them , you will like them
