Top 7 riverside pubs in Bristol
Enjoy the last days of summer with these 7 Bristol riverside pubs
With August being a washout, September is our last hope to enjoy the last remnants of summer before winter arrives.
With the potential of a late Indian summer, we look at the best pubs in Bristol where you can enjoy a drink overlooking the city’s many waterways.
Over 250 years old and a favourite with locals due to its central location, The Ostrich is the perfect place to enjoy a post-work pint as the sun sets over the city.
Quite possibly the best view in Bristol. Not only is The White Lion Bar’s sun-washed terrace situated on the side of the Avon Gorge, but you can enjoy your drinks with the famous Clifton Suspension Bridge right in front of you.
Sit on the riverside and watch as the boats and the world go by… Not just that, but as the pub is a part of the Butcombe Brewery chain, the beer is great too!
Situated just next to the swing bridge with views off both the harbourside and Clifton Suspension Bridge, The Pump has a beautiful outdoor terrace from which you can enjoy the pub’s wide range of beers and 400+ gins!
Grab a drink from the city’s arts centre/bar, head outside and join the masses of people sitting on the harbourside, dangling their legs over the edge and watching the world go by.
The oldest pubs in Bristol and, as such, are always popular in the summertime due to live music and their large otudoor seating area. Perfect for cider and ale drinkers galore!
Forget riverside pubs – just sit on the water itself with The Grain Barge – a converted barge that is now a bar! Sit on the top deck in the sun and enjoy some of the city’s finest beers and sights, as the S.S. Great Britain is on the other side of the river.
