Why we love it

Workout Bristol's waterfront cafe/bar is a proper hidden gem (gym) on Welsh Back. Boy have they done a good job with their recent refurb - repurposed squash court flooring with bright flecks of colour, flanked by French windows looking out over the water, and lots of outside seating for the length of the building - all containing a truly surprising selection of beers, quality of coffee and ambitious food. What's more, they're super friendly. And there's​ two ping pong tables on a Friday night. Two. Free. Ping. Pong. Tables.

Highlights

Multiple table-tennis tables
Excellent selection of local beers
Good-quality fresh and nourishing food

This is a hidden gem, very cute cafe and had a nice time sitting by the river with our pints as they have plenty of tables outside. Would definitely recommend the cider!

Table tennis informally organised. Kitchen can get overwhelmed so get in earlier probably. Lovely staff. Slightly confusing layout/table service set up

What a great spot for the last pints pre self-isolation. Love it here, can’t wait to return.

Workout gym has supported our running club for years so we always go to their bar for a few drinks afterwards. New management has added some great new beers (which can be a bit pricey) - but supporting local breweries which is awesome (and buying a Wriggle helps!) :)

So much more than a gym. The food is banging and the booze is well selected. Nice people pulling it all together too. One of Bristol’s gems.
