Great Location - outside table on first floor "very desirable" on a sunny day

Very good place to stop whilst Touring the bock area. Whilst the menu choice is limited and not haute cuisine, it offers very good value. My beef risotto was a very filling substantial meal. Managed to get an outside table on a sunny day. Great place to sit, drink a pint etc. Food arrived very... read more

Lovely stroll along the Quayside. Great coffee bar/cafe and winery overlooking the water. Dappled sunlight throug the tall window on a summer afternoon with a good bottle of red wine is unbeatable Fab venue, an all time favorite with locals and delightful destination for visitors.

A long established cafe/bar with great views over the waterfront, it’s a relaxed, chilled out sort of place that tries to cater for all sorts, whether you just popping in for a pint, a coffee, or something to eat. Food choice seems to be a bit more limited than I recall from previous visits. Their Spring menu had a few... More

Cheap and good quality, and big enough that you dont have to overhear the table of welsh laughing as hard as they can Well worth it if you are on the Water front in Bristol

Lovely sunny upstairs airy cafe with really lovely food and drinks available. Perfect if you can nab a seat to sit on the small balcony overlooking the river. Would recommend pretty much anything on the menu.

We always seem to end up here when I visit Bristol! It has a great chilled out atmosphere, good especially if you're trying to get some work done over a relaxed lunch/coffee. The food is reasonably priced, you get a decent portion and it is very tasty - but best of all not only are there plenty of vegetarian options,... More

We dropped in around noon on a Monday to do coffee with a couple of pals. We made no demands of anyone and none were made of us. Its a laptop friendly place for doing a spot of work, arranging informal work meets, and obviously to have a coffee.

We like the Watershed and visit it often. It has a nice friendly atmosphere and suitable for everyone. The food and refreshments are reasonably priced and the staff are very friendly. With cinemas on site it is very family orientated and you can relax with a coffee while over looking the harbour. A great place to visit.
