Atmospheric old pub inside with a garden area at the back. Lively when we visited on a Friday evening, but we still managed to find a table outside. Crowd mainly youngish (it’s near Bristol University). Good Thatcher’s cider on tap.

Fabulous roast on Sunday. Beef and lamb just fell apart. Extra crispy roast potatoes, tasty cauliflower cheese, lashings of gravy, mixed veg - highly recommended

This place is everything a local pub should be. Great ambiance, lovely outdoor space that’s actually warm during winter. The Sunday roasts are incredible, generous portion sizes, we couldn’t even manage dinner.

This is a wonderful neighborhood pub. Good selection of craft and local beers and ciders, the mark of a credible establishment. Funky old tables, chairs and the like. We shared a table with about ten chemistry students and bad a blast. Good pub snacks, but...More

Returned for 30 year uni reunion. Pub had not changed at all. Great beer selection and an excellent little beer garden at the back.
