The property is in the heart of Bristol city, surrounded by many offices, retail units and residential addresses.

Bristol's Harbourside is also a short stroll away, now an attractive, thriving modern development filled with restaurants, bars, shops and hotels.

Graze Bar & Chophouse is a fresh and sophisticated take on the traditional British pub and combines superb ales, wines and spirits with a 'no nonsense' menu of quality British and European dishes. Inspired by the bars and chophouses of London and New York, the interior of Graze boasts high quality bespoke furniture, creative lighting schemes and quirky interior design. Informal yet stylish, Graze serves Bath Ales beers along with an eclectic range of continental beers, premium spirits, interesting wines and soft drinks. The operation is owned and managed by Bath ales who are now owned by St Austell Brewery who have taken the decision to sell in line with their strategic plans.
