Dinners and receptions

With panoramic views over Bristol’s harbourside, M Shed is one of the city’s most popular venues for dinners and receptions.

The Events Suite is the perfect place for your event, whether you are organising a dinner, a sociable canapés soirée or a celebration party for friends, family or colleagues.

Our Event Suite takes pride of place on the top floor of M Shed. With over 300m2 of flexible space and access to our private rooftop terrace, it will immediately wow your guests.

The Event Suite is a versatile space. It can be used as one large space or divided into several independent suites. M Shed has the flexibility to host your event in a stunning settings.

Our team of experienced and creative chefs are skilled at creating bespoke menus to suit your needs, whether you’re planning a banquet or just some simple, delicious canapés. We find the finest ingredients, locally sourced where possible, and ensure our food is ethical, sustainable and seasonal. We received the Soil Association silver standard in 2018 and proudly use Fairtrade coffee and British Farm Assured meat. We freshly bake our bread and cakes using British flour.

We can provide tastings of our menus and help you select the perfect wines to complement.
