“Cinema, art and food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

I have been here many times. It is a place you can go to alone or with friends and feel comfortable. You can surf the net in the cafe and wander round the art exhibitions. The cinemas are friendly.

“Well worth a visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013

It was brilliant learning all about Bristol's history. Very well laid out and captures your interest the minute you walk through the door.

“Absolutely amazing food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013 via mobile

The food was absolutely incredible - very surprised.

Went in on a pure whim as we've not been been before and just wanted a nice lunch.

Food turned up and we were amazed! The food was awesome. All local, freshly prepared and delicious.

Very happy. Will definitely be coming again.

“Great location, relaxing, friendly service but quality if going down”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

Am visiting the Watershed restaurant very often. The place is great in terms of location and the service is extremely friednly and attentive. The food needs some more attention though. It is getting worse in terms of quality. Although still better than the average pub meals it sometimes lacks the something different that makes it unforgettable. I ordered for example the mezze dish in which there was a total lack of anything salty: even the olives were sweetened, some lemon and maybe falafel or meatballs would have made it a great dish. The beans and ginger soup was very good and the spaghetti lamb bolognese was spirelli after all. The coffees and cakes are good. I like Watershed a lot, both for seeing flms and relaxing after a nice walk in Bristol.

We ate here on a Sunday morning, we both had the full English breakfast, and it was great! It was nice and quiet, and the staff were efficient, thoroughly recommend you try here for a breakfast
