Atmospheric and unique location with a lovely menu, enhanced by the 'specials' night. Good range of beers and wines too.

No delay in ordering food and drink and very good quality for both, will definitely recommend to friends to make the Grain Barge their 'Port of Call'.

Many thanks for allowing me to host my birthday party on Saturday night. Food was amazing and can you pass on my thanks to the chef and my organiser on Saturday night for wrapping the left overs to take away.

I am really very impressed and so glad I chose the Grain Barge. All of the staff are efficient, extremely courteous and polite, even helping me getting my gifts back off the barge to my car. Being able to have a bar tab to settle up at the end of the night was most helpful to me.

The fairy lights and tea lights added such a great ambiance and all my guests were really impressed with the venue. All round a fantastic well done to you all.

I had lunch on the Barge today and I have to say that's the best fish pie I've ever eaten, and I've eaten a few, all over the UK. The sauce was amazing and the crushed potato topping was spot on.

Great Job! Thank you all so much for helping us host a really good evening.

Just wanted to say thank you for helping me to organise my 30th birthday party on Saturday! You were really helpful in the run-up to the night, and the food spread was fantastic. Everyone had a great time and loved the venue - for a lot of us Bristol lot who have eaten and had drinks in the upstairs part, we were unaware what a great function space you have downstairs and some of my friends said they would consider booking it themselves in the future.

Just want to say a massive thank you on behalf of ATM. We had a wicked time! Lovely venue and lovely staff! Say a thank you to Aimee too - she was also awesome! We will definitely return to The Grain Barge again (if you'll have us that is!)

Thank you so much for helping us throw a great party for my husband, John. The food was fantastic and the team on shift that night were friendly and accommodating. We all really enjoyed ourselves. This is why the Grain Barge is one of our favorite places in Bristol.

Just a quick email to thank you and your staff for making my birthday meal last night so wonderful. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves, the food was superb, the service was brilliant. I will of course be recommending The Grain Barge to my family, friends and colleagues.

Just dropping you a line to thank you for the good food and excellent service we had for our Christmas meal last Thursday. All of our party were very complimentary and are keen to come back another time.

What a lovely evening!! The food was phenomenal, great atmosphere and you and the staff were very attentive, thank you so much. I don't think there's anything I'd change about it - a great Thursday evening! See you at Christmas time for our staff party!

I just wanted to say a big thank you to everyone that helped make my birthday party such a fantastic night. I had a brilliant evening, all of the staff at the Grain Barge were very kind and helpful, the food was lovely and all of the guests commented on what a great venue it was (with a few considering hiring it in the future). Thanks a lot for storing everything overnight and taking down all off the decorations for me.

Thank you so so much for making my birthday party soooo enjoyable. We had music, we had words, we had dancing - and in the end I didn't mind about the people who didn't turn up - as they missed out!! Ha ha.

I'll definitely use the Grain Barge for further do's. I'll be having a book launch soon - and maybe an "official" poetry night.

I would just like to say that Saturday 15th Sept was an absolute cracker of a night at the Grain Barge. We all enjoyed ourselves immensely and I hope my group didn’t give your team too much hard work or hassle. Holly & Jo were absolutely brilliant, nothing was too much trouble. Holly ensured my partner had everything in place beforehand and that the evening was flowing nicely. Please could you thank them personally from us? They deserved it.

As this was my second visit on a similar Police retirement celebration, the Grain Barge lived up to its strengths again. A fantastic venue and customer service to go with it, what more can I ask? Thank you.

Just to say how much we all enjoyed the lunch today. No one in our group had been to the Grain Barge before, and everyone said they really enjoyed it. The food was really very good, and the atmosphere and attentiveness from the staff just right.

You really looked after us and added all the lovely special touches to the décor and feel of our special evening & we are very thankful to you.

Thank you so much, we’ll definitely be coming to more events and bringing others on the Barge in the future. You’re a lovely person and make all the difference. All the lovely staff involved were great too. We had an amazing night & celebration

I visited the Grain Barge from London a few weekends ago and was blown away by my meal. Please can I have the recipe for the chicken & gruyere pie with mash & creamy leek sauce - as it was splendid. A return visit goes without saying!

28 February 2012

Just to thank you for such a brilliant job of hosting our little Party on Sat! Food was beautiful & everyone enjoyed it, immensely! Thanks to all for their attentive help, in making it all run so smoothly.

I absolutely love Grain Barge…The few in our group who had travelled from further afield were well impressed with GB, too, btw…the GB do the best Fish Pies we’ve ever tasted, as well! Hope to make it down on Friday, for the Spring Beer Festival & Music; but am still a bit worn out from the last weekend to look that far ahead, yet!

Thank you again for helping me purchase a food voucher for my brother and his fiancée for the holidays. They emailed me photos today of their time there. He told me that they truly enjoyed there meal and included photos of the food, atmosphere and you! I truly appreciate your assistance. It was great to have the opportunity to give my brother a gift that he could use while visiting the UK. Enjoy your visit to New York for Christmas. We are finally getting snow in the Northeast of the US, so it looks like we may have a white Christmas after all!

I just wanted to send a quick email to say thank you for hosting us last night... everyone had a really good time and kept on commenting on what a lovely place the Grain Barge was. Hopefully you will get more sober custom from some of us in the next year now!

Thank you for your reply. We managed to arrive on time and get a table to enjoy a wonderful night on your Barge. Phil and Emily Baker were great and I was even bought CD's as a birthday present. Great location and a wonderful atmosphere. And yes...the weather was lovely.

Just a very quick message to say how much I appreciated the help of your staff on Saturday the 22nd October 2011. We had a 14 strong group, who ordered food in dribs and drabs and your staff were excellent at pulling things together and bringing our food out at the same time. Your manager Holly in particular was absolutely fantastic and couldn't do enough to help. It was a university reunion and we couldn't have picked a better place to start the evening.

A belated but very sincere 'thank you' for last Thursday. I got really good feedback from everyone that was there. The food and atmosphere were great.
