We enjoyed drinks in this interesting pub, choosing to sit in the busy garden. Drinks were chosen from a wide selection of real ales and we all enjoyed our choices

The pub itself is a bit dark inside but it has a lovely garden. The staff are always friendly and the food is delicious. Not far from where I work so a perfect place to meet friends for lunch.

Another stop to drink beers during my stay in Bristol. This is typical student pub which was always full of students. Beers were perfect here - lots of dark, pale beers and ciders. Meals were good as well. But toilets were little dirty.

Really nice old fashioned pub. Served good, wholesome food at a decent price. Seemed to have a decent range of real ales, and alternative choices for those of us non-real ale drinkers. And bar billiards, which is sadly becoming something of a curiosity. Hey ho....More
