Arnolfini Café Bar

Overlooking Bristol's historic harbour, Arnolfini Café Bar is a picturesque, central location ideal for meeting up with friends, family and colleagues.

Both in the Café Bar and outside on the harbourside, you can enjoy freshly baked cakes, artisan coffee and locally-sourced beers, wines and spirits.

We are proud of the suppliers that we work with, who share our passion for high-quality, sustainable, local produce.

Please note that over the summer months our kitchen is closed. We no longer serve full meals, but you can still come along and enjoy cakes, coffee and a changing selection of light bites and snacks - see our sample menu.

Over the next few months we will be exploring a number of options to ensure that we make the best possible use of the Café Bar and its hugely popular harbourside location.

If you’ve got an idea or collaboration for the Café Bar that you’d like to share with us, please do get in touch with our Head of Finance and Operations,

In the meantime look out for special offers and details of our summer DJs, BBQs and events…coming soon.
