The Ostrich in Central Bristol

Perched on the edge of the historic Bristol Harbourside, The Ostrich sits proudly with its huge riverside beer garden and cosy interiors over two floors. 

Upstairs, the recently refurbished ‘Top Deck’ dining space and bar is available for private hire with stunning views over the harbour, while downstairs our main bar space is ideal for a quiet pint and a bite to eat.

Outside, our Portside BBQ serves up amazing Americana-inspired street food to one of Bristol’s best beer gardens, with a mix of suntrap seating areas, shady spots, and our covered and heated all-weather teepees. Inside, our pub menus celebrate traditional British pub classics, sharing dishes, and seasonal, local produce.

Behind the bar, it’s all about award-winning Butcombe beer, cocktails and an extensive rum menu – a nod to The Ostrich’s roots as a dockside inn where sailors, merchants and dock-workers once drank. 

Please note outside tables are available on a first come, first served basis. Food and drink can be easily ordered to your table via the Butcombe App.

We’re child-friendly, dog-friendly, and LGBTQIA+ friendly, with plenty of space for small and large groups, so everyone’s welcome at The Ostrich.

Don’t forget to pay a visit to our ‘smugglers’ cave’ for a true slice of Bristol heritage!
