The food selection was idea with plenty of light snack type food available as well as the bigger meals. (We had been over eating for several days by... More

We stayed in Bristol Friday and Saturday and visited here both nights. Great place for drinks by the river. 3 floors so a very big establishment with a good outside seating area and 100s of drinks to choose from.

We stopped in here last weekend for dinner. We were just visiting Bristol overnight and had no prior knowledge of the area, but this place looked popular. The ambience and service were quite fine, but the food was completely unacceptable. We sat down at around 5:30pm or so, and they were already out of several items on the menu. My... More

The view and the placing is spectacular. I ordered the sausage and cabbage mash. infact it was spring onion mash and the mash was more like smash. There is a gravy that comes all over it (it doesn't say that on the menu) and it tastes like water. Waited 10 minutes to get served a drink,

Spent a very pleasant afternoon with friends in the Pitcher and Piano. We had starters and four different mains and pudding, which was all served in a lovley relaxed manor. The staff were very attentive. The menu is varied and the portion size is good for the price. I would recommend you spend some time here, you won't be disappointed.
