Below are a selection of recent testimonials that we have received from our guests

February 2018

“First class service … first class food … first class location….. you could say I loved every minute of it”

“My fiancé and I were visiting Bristol for a couple of days for his birthday. I booked The Glassboat after a little bit of research followed by a couple of recommendations. We both had starters and a main and were unfortunately too full for pudding too. All our dishes we delicious and nicely presented. The service here was top notch and our waiter was lovely. The restaurant felt cosy and romantic. Would definitely recommend!”

“On a cold day the welcome was warm and the food superb. Great location for a pre-lunch wander around old Bristol”

“I have eaten at this restaurant for coming up to 20 years now and it has gone through a few transitions. Something tells me it is having a shake up, especially with the new appointment of one of Markwick’s chefs in the kitchen and a front of house which could rival many top London eateries. The food and service were impeccable. Lovely evening had by all.”

Feedback from an event in our Lower Deck private dining room

“From the moment we arrived I knew all would go smoothly as your staff had arranged everything as I had asked. The guests were welcomed warmly and Fran was very discreet about the bar bill and we moved effortlessly down below. The food was quite delicious and served speedily. Everyone said how good it was. We had some fun musical entertainment and then again the handling of the bill went very smoothly. Please thank everyone for making it all so wonderful”
