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.


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

We've lived and drank coffee in Bristol for many, many years but this was the first time we'd visited Workout Cafe. It was, genuinely, excellent. The coffees were well made and promptly brought to our table and the ginger and lemon cake was moist and very tasty! What's more, it's a lovely space overlooking the harbour and it was quiet - a rare find for a Sunday afternoon in Bristol! The staff were very helpful and friendly and took time to chat with us and engage with our toddler.
