The Grain Barge

The Grain Barge opened in July 2007 and by the end of the year had been voted Venue magazine's Best Bar in Bristol.

Docked in a beautiful Harbourside location in Hotwells, this historic converted barge is bursting with character. Within sight of Brunel's ss Great Britain, it's the perfect place to relax and watch the world go by.

The Grain Barge has established itself as one of Bristol's friendliest, most casual eating and drinking experiences. Owned by the Bristol Beer Factory, it serves award-winning real ales, brewed less than a mile away in Ashton. The specials menu is updated daily using locally sourced, fresh produce, which is organic and fair trade where possible.

The Grain Barge is also famed for its regular live music every Friday night in the downstairs hold bar, which is also available for private hire.
