“Realxed Atmosphere with Good Food”
Reviewed March 24, 2013 via mobile

Had a lovely lunch here with friends. Food was good and nice selection of beers. Relaxed atmosphere, not overcrowded. Will go again, looking forward to a drink on the top deck when we finally get some warmth in Bristol!

“Great drinks”
Reviewed March 5, 2013

I've not eaten here (except chips from the bar) but the drinks are always excellent, I believe these guys are linked to the Tobacco Factory in the South of the city. They have that fabulous cider that tastes like Jolly Ranchers, and serve warm cider in the Winter!

“Went for lunch during beer festival, had great pies.”
Reviewed February 19, 2013

Gorgeous pies, wouldn't go on a windy day when the river is choppy if you get sea sick. We started out the sunny afternoon with our beer outside on the top deck with a beautiful view of the harbour, but went back inside before our food came. Ordered two pies, the fish and the vegetarian. Both delicious. The seafood pie was with a potato mash topping, while the veg was in a traditional pastry crust, though bright orange with sweet potato I believe.
We tried two great beers with their beer festival special. Staff was knowledgeable and helpful.
Their sandwich grill wasn't working so they were doing sandwiches on un-toasted bread, we opted just for pies.
