This historic converted barge is bursting with character, and with stunning panoramic views, it makes for a great place to soak up its harbourside location.



We have a fantastic range of regularly changing craft beers, lagers & ciders from some of the UK's most exciting craft breweries and from further afield. 

On cask, we have three Bristol Beer Factory beers, plus two guest beers. On keg, we have Milk Stout (Bristol Beer Factory's multi award winning, National Champion Stout), plus three guest craft beers including sours, IPAs and wheat beers. 



Our specials menu is updated daily & relies heavily on fresh produce, using organic & fair trade whenever possible. Specials are available all day except Sunday lunchtime (12-4pm). View our example Specials Menu.

We also make all our bread and pies on the premises - see the Daily Menu for our selection of sandwiches, pies and snacks (served all day, except Sunday lunch).

You can simply drop in and grab a table, but we also take reservations. Call our friendly team on 0117 929 9347.



Every Thursday night (and sometimes on other days) we showcase quality live music from established and up-and-coming acts. Doors open at 8pm. Most nights, free entry.
