Welcome to The Ostrich

Perched on the edge of the historic Bristol Harbourside, The Ostrich sits proudly, boasting a relaxed, comfortable and social vibe, where everyone is welcome. With its large riverside beer garden and quirky interiors, it is the perfect place to meet friends for a drink or enjoy a pub lunch or dinner.

Upstairs, our ‘Top Deck’ dining space and bar is available for private hire, weddings and business meetings with stunning views over the harbour, while downstairs our main bar is ideal for that perfect pint. Behind the bar, it’s all about award-winning Butcombe beer, cocktails and spirits.

During Summer, enjoy our amazing pub-classic inspired street food, from our outdoor kitchen, served in our beer-garden – dubbed as one of the best in Bristol. With a mix of suntrap seating areas and shady spots, as well as our al-fresco bar, there is no better place to soak up some rays.

We’re family-friendly and love welcoming well-behaved dogs and their pet parents and with a number of exciting and unique events happening throughout the year, there is a little something for everyone.

We have plenty of cosy corners and warming dishes in Winter and sun-kissed spots and refreshing cocktails in Summer, so whatever your reason for visiting, we look forward to welcoming you – don’t forget to pay a visit to our ‘smugglers’ cave’ for a true slice of Bristol heritage!

Please note outside tables are available on a first come, first served basis, and cannot be booked. Drinks can be easily ordered to your table via OrderPay.
