Lockside Waterfront Cafe
red line
Lockside is Bristol’s waterfront cafe offering casual dining on the edge of the Avon Gorge, with great views of the Clifton Suspension Bridge, an ideal meeting place providing relaxed waterfront eating for customers in the Bristol area.

The site has been an institution in Bristol since 1963 previously known as The Venturers Rest and latterly Popeyes Diner. Also famous for being Sid’s Cafe in ’Only Fools & Horses’ - although these days we like to think we are more of a pollished spoon than a greasy spoon!

The menu is simple but up-to-the-minute, with lots of comfort appeal. Quality is of paramount importance to us at Lockside, we aim to cook the best fresh quality produce to exacting standards. Our menus are diverse, offering a range of hearty breakfasts and contemporary lunch and evening dishes at very competitive prices. We also offer an extensive wine list containing well known favourites, alongside little numbers from around the world.

Outside we have seating areas with views over the river. During the summer months you can meander the day away enjoying fine food and chilled wines and beers, forgetting about the worries of work!

The atmosphere at Lockside is relaxed, friendly and informal, while the overall impression is of a restaurant which is comfortable, light and open. It is our attention to detail and high level of service that ensures your whole dining experience will be truly memorable. We are fully licenced restaurant from 9am with a friendly team who look forward to welcoming you very soon.
