“great - but don't eat there unless you are a cheeze-fetishist”
Reviewed August 13, 2012

Fantasic venue - great views in good and bad weather, friend staff and a big selection of very well served beers.

However, the menu is cheeze-obsessed! I'm cheeze-phobic and to find *every* pie involving cheeze (and many other menu items esp. on tapas night) is a little disappointing.

Please cater for dairy-haters!

“Scenic Pub”
Reviewed August 2, 2012

We much enjoyed our meal on the river. There was plenty of river traffic as the harbor festival was upcoming. The food seemed bigger on presentation than quality with the presentation better than the actual food. Nice selection of beers and ciders. Staff was very friendly and helpful.

“Tremendous setting & very original location”
Reviewed August 1, 2012

Interesting and quirky location right on the floating harbour. Plenty of covered and open accommodation. Reasonable prices but very much "pub grub" rather than "haute cuisine". But I would gladly go back. Friendly staff.

“Great setting, good beer, food looked average.”
Reviewed July 13, 2012

Another venue on my Bristol beer tour and even on a filthy wet day the Grain Barge is a welcoming establishment with great views. Beer was decent too and the food whilst in good portions looked "average" pub fare (not a criticism, nothing wrong with bog standard grub with beer).

“Good Sunday lunch!”
Reviewed May 24, 2012

Lovely setting for a Sunday lunch, and great food too. The staff were friendly and the service prompt. The menu offered a lot of variety, even for a Sunday lunch, which was impressive. The pork belly was especially good, but the nut roast was also great. Would recommend to friends.
