The Grain Barge is Bristol Beer Factoryís boat in a slightly insalubrious area a short way out of the city centre. When we visited there were three BBF beers on cask, two guests and a handful of kegs. The barge has a slung deck which goes up at each end, with the bar in the middle. Itís quite nice and certainly different but somehow it lacked character although there are interesting views over the river and across to the funnel and masts of the SS Great Britain on the opposite bank.

Floating pub I suppose, Like having a nice relaxing pint on a boat. Good selection of Bristol Beer Factory beers, all in good condition. Iíd like to go when the weather is nicer on the open top deck

Nice floating bar serving a range of Bristol Beer Factory beers, excellent views of the river while drinking well kept beer and eating the very good food.

Floating bar just across the docks from the SS Great Britain and offering good views from the outside drinking deck. Owned by the same people as the Bristol Beer factory and usually has 5 of its ales on hand pull and others in bottles although, strangely, rarely the specials. Food is good value. Close to the Bag OíNails and Three Tuns, so worth visiting both on the same trip.

A pub on a barge. Nice and cosy, reminding me of many of the boat pubs in Turku (though the ones in Turku donít have any decent beers). Slightly dissappointed in the amount of Bristol Beerís own beers, I had expected some more...

Nice, novel beer venue. Visited on a wet and windy night and it was cosy inside. Mixed clientele with couples, groups having dinner and people by themselves reading. Bar staff were chatty and friendly and happy to give samples. Several Bristol Beer Factory beers available on pump or in bottles.

We visited here on Saturday 28th January 2012. We arrived around 6:30pm and it was already quite busy though we managed to find a table. Seems to be a very popular place with a youngish 20s & 30ís crowd. The beers are all from Bristol Beer Factory with about 4-5 offerings on handpump and a similar amount of their own bottles on offer, go for the Southville Hop youíll not be disappointed. Would be interested to try this place in the warmer months when one could sit out on deck as it were. Beer good, atmosphere good, enjoyed it here.

Well, itís a barge. With beer from Bristol Beer Factory. Sitting on the top deck, itís a damn nice spot to have a pint and a bit of a break from the usual real ale pub.
