The dark haired girl behind the bar is very friendly but can you tell her the difference between fries and chips. I ordered chips and got fries. It's important I think to get this right. The portions were really small. Although they are cheap. I probably wouldnt order any food again because I'd be unsure about what I'd get.

One of the worst lunches I have had in a long time! Service at the bar was so slow, despite it being practically empty and hardly anyone in their. The bar person did not seem to be someone who should be front of house as every order took ages or was forgotten about. I ordered a cappuccino and it never...

Visited as a group of 6 for my wife's birthday in order to eat and drink prior to heading to the nearby Redgrave theatre. Ordered food at around 18:45, with a view to leaving 30-35 minutes later. The pub was nearly empty. Firstly, I specifically asked when making the first order that all the food be brought at the same...

Although the prospect and decor promised a lovely lunch experience we were let down in every way. Service at the bar was slow and surly, hot chocolate was unavailable, only half our food order was taken before someone else was served. The food (including 2 children's meals) took AN HOUR to arrive despite the place being virtually empty. 2 other...

Pleasant staff, tired hotel in need of refurbishment. Our room was small, comfy bed. No hotel parking. Great location for shopping, sight seeing and chilling. Good restaurants. Good weekend with friends.

The pub is a wonderful place to relax with a drink, have a bite to eat, or work (it has free wifi). The staff are always welcoming and go above and beyond to make me feel welcome. There is a great selection of food and drink to suit all tastes, and is well priced for the Clifton area. The outside...

We stayed at the Channings Hotel as it was close to Bristol Old Vic Theatre School and my daughter had an audition there. It is very much a pub with rooms. Room was nice, a bit tired, but large room for 3 of us, high ceilings and big windows. Bit noisy as it was over the bar. The rump steak...

The room was at least clean. Very small room with no place where to hang anything, no storage of any kind, no a wardrobe, no hooks. I had to leave all my clothes inside the luggage. It does not have a fridge. The room was incredibly hot, I turned off the heating but did not work as there are like...

Rooms need updating urgently. There was cellotape all over the wall in the bathroom to attempt to hide peeling wallpaper (see photo). Only 2 TV channels worked, sticky TV remote. Very old building so can hear everything, difficult to sleep. Seems like the bar is the priority and hotel guests are not. No phone, minimum toiletries, no glasses for water...
