Review

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?

This is the sister pub of the Golden Lion, set in the heart of the city centre on King Street. The main focus for this pub is the jazz, which becomes quite obvious when you step in, with loads of jazz posters everywhere! It’s famous for having many free live jazz/blues nights and a yearly jazz festival.

With the latest ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ film now on our screens featuring a Bristolian pirate, Blackbeard, what better way to celebrate this than to go to the pub that apparently Blackbeard drank in.

Review

When my friend recently brought up The Orchard in conversation, I just had to go down and see it again. It’s a little like an old friend for me, that isn’t quite local enough I can easily walk to visit, but I feel guilty I don’t see enough of because they are so close. Luckily as my other half is a perennial taxi user, it wasn’t to be the usual long journey to the other side of the river, but a nice short taxi ride.

Review

Walking on an average Saturday afternoon through Gloucester, you would not normally realise that this place even existed. Situated through an arch next to a Church, you wouldn’t expect to find a pub, let alone a pub with so much character and cider on offer!

Review

The pub is ideally located right next door to the station. Perfect for a quick pint before/after you’re catching a train. We opted for the latter. It’s a no-frills pub which serves a good pint, even if it is only Westons. Perfectly away-fans friendly for the football, very welcoming and you can have a good chat as there is no loud music.

Review

Walking up to this place it appeared the town was getting rougher and rougher and it didn’t look like it was in the best of locations (it reminds me walking to the Bristol Cider House in Bristol). However, the pub itself was brilliant, even if a little odd with its shape from the outside. There was 3 proper ciders on tap and I was a happy chappy. I went for the Hecks cider and it went down a treat.
