A pub on a boat permanently moored in the Floating Harbour has been named among the 50 best UK pubs.
They write that the Grain Barge is “one of Bristol’s brightest, airiest pubs, offering a view of the magnificent SS Great Britain across an expanse of water always teeming with activity”.
They added: “There’s a range of interesting local beers in cask and keg, with a particular emphasis on the reliably decent Bristol Beer Factory.
“Sit on a stool by the window and watch dinghies swoop and turn and water taxis glide by, while historic ships the Matthew and the Mayflower (not that one) make their rounds. And you may occasionally see a dog on a paddleboard.”
The Grain Barge was built in Bristol in 1936 and started life as an engineless transport barge that carried barley and wheat from Bristol to Cardiff across the Severn Estuary.
The boat was bought by former Bristol mayor George Ferguson and refitted as a floating bar in 2007.
