Its very dark, slightly musty interior, gives it a distinctly Victorian feel. Outside in the leafy garden bar, however, the rows of benches and the very welcome gas burning heaters create a slightly Mediterranean and more contemporary atmosphere. The overall effect is one of a classic ale house, and it is very popular with older locals, students and real ale aficionados alike. The pub menu includes stews, chili, salads and curries.
What a place! I've been going for the last few weeks and am completely hooked. One of the biggest attractions for us is the classic Bar Billiars table--something we haven't encountered in many other pubs around the city. Thanks to HV I'm now into my ales, and the garden is amazing, even in the winter where the patio heaters keep everything nice and warm! I'm a student and there's a perfect mix of other students and some locals hanging around in there. Great atmosphere, everyone's friendly (especially the bar-staff) and it's most definitely my favorite spot in Bristol!
