Boasting stunning Harbourside views, The River Grille is known for its ever-changing seasonal menus, packed full of local ingredients and exciting flavours.

The River Grille menu is packed with local ingredients like lamb and pork belly from Nailsea, sustainably sourced fish from Brixham, and the West Country’s Cornish Blue, Yarg and Westcomb Cheddar that pack a serious punch on the cheese platter. Seasonal dishes see warming root vegetables sit alongside the likes of cod, butterbean and chorizo stews and hazelnut soufflé for dessert.

The light and airy dining area has striking light features and mahogany furniture, with large windows that allow diners to look out over the water. The River Grille Bar is complete with a glossy finish and quirky white grand piano.

At the Centre of the city, the River Grille Restaurant is a 10 minute walk from Bristol Temple Meads station and right on the Narrow Quay Harbourside.

    Lovely location. Very impressed with the food, especially the pre-theatre offer. Couldn't fault the service - would definitely return.

    Sunday lunch disappointed with the meat. Really chewy and uneatable.

    Excellent dining room, friendly and efficient staff. Pity the roast beef was nowhere as good as it looked! Cutting and chewing it was almost impossible. The vegetables were nicely cooked and the Yorkshire puddings were the best we have ever tasted. Nice selection of desserts, too.

    Food ok but that was about it definitely not worth the money!!!

  • ((((* 20 February 2017 by Sam Palmer from Bristol

    Overall, a lovely meal with the family just tarnished by the fact that the starters arrived minus one soup and we were told it was coming! But couldn't help to notice that the table behind us who arrived later received all their starters at the same time including several soups which was probably one of ours. We waited 5 mins for the missing soup to arrive. Such a shame while our starters were getting cold!
