Visited August 2017 with beery friends. Last stop for the day. Lovely, cosy bar at the river. Easy to fnd. Lots of seatings inside and a few outside as well. Really a place for everyone. An old lady sitting with her tea and newspaper. And the rest of us young and older having a beer from the nice selection they got. Beers were served in good condition and with a friendly smile. For sure worth a vist, having the time.
A rather large and airy, modern bar on the quayside overlooking the harbour bay. An oval room with different sections including a live stage and a retro section to the rear. Five locally sourced cask ales (Bristol Beer Factory and Arbor), the usual fizzy stuff on keg and a few bottles. Smiling service. Opens early. (Visited with Finn, 01.05.2017).
Visited on a Saturday afternoon in August 2015. Cafe bar affair on the busy harbourside. Place wasn’t too packed despite the crowds outside. The Kinks were the background muzak which is decent in my book. Handpulls had 4 local beers on. Picked up 2 new New Bristol beers. It’s a nice spot. A bit divorced dad place but if in the middle of a spot of tourism it’s a decent spot for a rate.
A very pleasant, arty sort of café bar with windows onto the waterfront and seats outside on the covered harbourside walkway. It’s light and airy with a relaxed atmosphere and friendly service - the kind of place where you can go to eat or feel equally comfortable just having a beer or a coffee. There’s a small stage at one end where they have live music, notably on Fridays and Saturdays when it’s open late. They have five handpumps with a nice selection of local beers, eleven or twelve keg taps and a few ciders.

I visited here on Friday 2nd January 2015. A modern cafe type with simple metal and wooden chairs and tables, almost school like. The long bar counter is a solid slab of concrete, a few substantial old supporting pillars and red velvet sash curtains lead to a slightly raised area which with speakers either side probably acts as a stage. Its 11:45 but there are a few people in here, an elderly lady in her eighties a youngish woman on her laptop and a couple of chaps plus one chap with a dog, do it caters for all. Five handpumps with Bristol Beer Factory, Bath Beerd and the one from Frome (forgot name) on offer. Service friendly, ambience pleasant, Alt-J on stereo but more for staff in kitchen. Like it.
No.1 Harbourside is a cafe/bar/restaurant situated on a rather pleasant location on the waterfront. We primarily came here for the food which was absolutely delicious; small plates of seafood, meat and seasonal vegetable delights. The selection of good produce extends to beer. They offer 5 cask ales, a few decent kegs and about 20 bottles. The focus is clearly local with Bristol beer factory being the main brewery, but also Arbor, Bath and Wiper & True available. A very nice venue to pop in for a half or equally spend a lazy afternoon people watching.
Bar cum restaurant right on the front, just where the water taxi drops off. There is a good and changing range of beers on both cask and keg. The staff were keen to discuss their beers, the atmosphere in the bar is a little transient, but quite pleasant when the Sunday market is in operation. The food was excellent.
Right on the waterfront, close to the watershed and Stable, which makes for a very easy crawl. Normally sells a couple of Bristol Beer Factory products, with a focus on the specials, and guests which include Arbor and Bath Ales, plus real cider and perry from Severn. Lunch menu is good value. Gets busy in the evenings and has a lively atmosphere. Not a "must visit’ destination, but still a good one.
