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.

This is a tiny narrow pub, in an ancient building, with a glass screened lounge area about the size of an old railway carriage. Nice selection of real ales, and a pleasant landlady.

The King's Head easily deserves to be in the top 10 of Bristol pubs, it's a simply beautiful professionally restored traditional ale house with fantastic cask ales and a nice little touches that have died out in most English pubs these days such as snacks...More

We visited a number of pubs around the central area on our recent visit to Bristol and didn't enjoy this one. Unfriendly landlord, expensive compared to others in the area, the pub is quirky with the unique old tram layout inside but we didn't enjoy...More
