Popped in for a quiet pint and found a good choice of beer and a unique heritage interior. This is a rare survival of a Victorian bar and snug, making for excellent surroundings to enjoy a pint of Timothy Taylor’s.

What a treasure! My colleague and I discovered this pub by accident on a recent business trip to Bristol and spent two enjoyable evenings chatting there. It's a nice quite pub midweek for a good pint (excellent doom bar!) We will definitely be going back.

You'll love this quaint little bar. We called in for a pint just to wet the whistle and found that it is quaint, traditionally styled place where the landlord runs his pub with great pride. Highly recommended.
