Why we love it

Bristol Beer Factory manages Arnolfini's cafe and bar - a perfectly located hub overlooking Bristol harbour.

As one of Bristol's best cultural destinations, Arnolfini is the perfect partner for Bristol Beer Factory - an award-winning independent brewery. These guys started brewing in 2004. Since then, their range has developed into over 8 different regular bottled ales, 7 regular cask ales and up to 5 specials throughout the year.

The cafe provides a selection of their locally brewed, unique craft beers and ciders, as well as rich aromatic coffees, and soft drinks. Not only this but they have an enticing selection of cakes and pastries, as well as flavour (and filling!) packed sandwiches and fresh tarts served daily. Their mains showcase exciting flavour combinations - we love their deliciously healthy Falafel and Butternut Squash Salad with Tahini Yoghurt, which is vegan too!

The cafe and bar is stylish and sophisticated, artfully decorated in line with the minimalist vibe of Arnolfini. When the sun is out, the bar comes out too, serving drinks to those who want to soak up the rays and the picturesque views on the water-front.


The 'Fini Full English - served until 12noon. The perfect reward for you early morning art enthusiasts
Loads of outside seating creates a bustling atmosphere on the harbour
Great for a coffee stop before a day exploring Bristol
