Savour local dishes on-board Bristol’s boats


Bristol’s proud maritime heritage has extended to its excellent range of restaurants and bars on-board boats and ships in the harbour.

Bristol’s waterways and docks once buzzed with merchants setting sail for voyages, but now have a different buzz, one where you’ll find lots of quirky restaurants and places to eat floating in the harbour itself.

Climb onto the Glassboat floating restaurant at sunset and watch the world go by as you enjoy a delicious bistro-style menu. Or for more traditional English food, hop onto The Matthew, the faithful replica of the boat used by John Cabot when he discovered Newfoundland in 1497, as it sails around the harbour on a cruise that includes fish and chips on-board.

For more relaxed dining and drinking, try Three Brothers Burgers for some of the best burgers in town, all on an old barge moored in the harbour.
