“Brilliant place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 8, 2012 via mobile

Watershed is my favourite place in Bristol. Nice food, great position, good films, lovely staff, vibrant atmosphere, inclusive of all ages. Usually buzzing with interesting media types having some meeting or course. Great for people watching. Very relaxed and welcoming. Manages to be well run and professional whilst exuding a laid back and off beat air. Interesting talks and courses on offer and always coming up with fresh ideas. Open all the time to anyone for food or just a long coffee. Love it.
