A little expensive, however, a great atmosphere and really buzzing when the sun is out on the huge terrace - although it can get crowded. View to the Clifton Suspension Bridge, Leigh Woods, Gorge and below the River Avon, and other directions have elegant dwellings and a great vista across the City.

Amazing location on a sunny day with beautiful views of the Clifton Suspension Bridge and the Avon Gorge...but the service I received was terrible and everything was overpriced. Bar staff were rude and unhelpful. Waited over an hour for food to arrive and when it did I was disappointed. For £13, I received a pot of mayonnaise, a pot of BBQ sauce, 5 cremated but cold chicken wings, a side salad and some undercooked, still cold in the middle potato wedges

If you want a quick (expensive) drink with a brilliant view, then it's brilliant. For anything else, go elsewhere.

One of the best views in bristol to enjoy a few drinks. Cannot rate the food much but the sandwiches are good - if a little expensive. Definitely worth spending a few hours there in the summer!

Lovely situation by the suspension bridge but lack of seating (inside and out) and kitchen appeared unable to cope with volume of people wanting drinks and, especially, food. Queued for ages to order then they closed queue for "at least 45 mins" and told people who had already queued they had to queue again (we couldn't be bothered as menu was limited - burgers, sausages, baguettes all with chips). Shame really as could be really good.

Service was quick despite being very very busy.
Staff were pleasant and apologetic for the wait.
