The clue is in the title with this one; Riverstation is sat right on the water, overlooking Bristol's pretty multicoloured houses. For sunny days, there's a large outdoor terrace, while inside, interiors are moody and atmospheric. But wherever you eat, expect a menu of seasonal British dishes.

Well worth the short drive out of Bristol, Windmill is blessed with views over the Bristol Channel. This country pub is perched high up on a hill, giving you a full whack of sea air - and if the weather isn't great? The restaurant has floor-to-ceiling windows, meaning you can still see everything.

The Lock Keeper

Just south of Bristol, The Lock Keeper has got 'country boozer' written all over it. Tootle down to Keynsham to find this cosy pub, alongside views of the River Avon thanks to a massive beer garden. Did someone say summer?

Overlooking the iconic Clifton Suspension Bridge and Avon Gorge, this smart Bristol restaurant has some of the most gorgeous views in the city. Upgrade birthday celebrations at this charming restaurant as you work your way through classic plates against an insane backdrop.

Gorgeous both inside and out, Bambalan puts the spotlight on North African and Mediterranean cuisines. Found in Bristol city centre, the relaxed restaurant has a vibrant roof terrace, perfect for watching the world go by and views of this laid back southwest hub.

For one of the most unique views in Bristol, you'll be hard pressed to beat Lido, the onsite restaurant to the swimming pool. The glass-fronted space is adjacent to the water, meaning you can watch swimmers do their lengths as you tuck into Spanish-inspired dishes.
