Boasting one of the best Pub locations in Bristol, on the historic harbour at Baltic Wharf. The original bulding dates back to 1868 and was used by merchants for storing Baltic timber for the growing number of businesses in the Dock in that period. When the Docks closed in 1975 the building went into decline and then became the home for the Harbour Master's Office. In 1983 it was refurbished and became ''The Cottage''.
