Having been notified of it’s re-opening, by a friend who works nearby, I had to pop on down to see what was happening. This is the latest venture by the people behind The Orchard. With them being one of Bristol’s best cider pubs, then this had to be good for cider right?

The pub is fairly small, but feels like it has a lot of character, just like you get when visiting any old school pub. Whilst speaking with the owner, he just wanted a simple no-thrills pub to start up. He has 5 ciders on tap and 5 ales, of which he rotates 2 of each as his guests. This is just to keep things fresh and not to have the same old boring stuff on all the time.

At present, food is limited to just rolls and bar snacks (pork scratchings and all), so for me it’s ideal in that sense. I go to the pub to drink and socialise with friends and not necessarily to have a meal. Though once the renovation is complete, there will be simple bar meals available.

I do like this pub and will certainly come back for a pint in good time. It’s a shame it is only open until 8pm (last orders at 7:30pm), but then again it will just have to be an early evening venue. For those wanting to stay past 7:30pm drinking, then they say in good time you will be able to privately hire the floor above (or bottom floor) and let the party continue.

Opening Hours:

Mon-Sun: 12pm-8pm (Last orders 7:30pm)

Tel: 0117 927 3641

    Ooh! I got a mention! 😀

    Also worth noting the special offers they’ve got available – I know it’s £2 a pint on Mondays and £2.50 a pint on Saturdays…can’t remember the others, though! I’ll take a photo of the specials board and send it to you…
