Review on Glass Boat Restaurant
Built as a barge for shipping timbers up and down the Severn, the Glass Boat is now moored up in the heart of Bristol's historic dock and plies its trade as an award-winning floating restaurant. Inside it's a fascinating mix of marble worktops from the old fish market, solid teak floors and portholes lifted from a cross-channel ferry.
Whether you are sitting on the top deck or enjoying the facilities in the refurbished private dining room in the bowels of the boat, it's a great venue for eating out. Weekday breakfasts from 7 o'clock open proceedings, lunches are fair value and the kitchen moves into top gear for more ambitious evening meals.
Starters of spiced aubergine salad with Greek yoghurt, cucumber and mint or a 'faggot' of foie gras and Savoy cabbage could be followed by fillet of Welsh Black beef with sarladaise potato, sautéed ceps and Madeira jus or herb-crusted roast halibut with tagliatelle and piperade. Desserts might range from hot chocolate fondant with white chocolate, hazelnuts and mint to crème Catalan with roast black figs and maple syrup, and the 160-bin international wine list has a strong French slant.
