Staff always friendly and welcoming. Well looked after. Food good too. Nothing is too much trouble. We love coming here to eat. Right next door to supermarket.

I visited the Flyer with some friends whilst visiting Bristol in May 2017. We were only getting drinks but you can still gauge a good idea how good a pub is, it was slightly rowdy, but perfectly friendly. Quite reasonably priced too. Recommended.

Description
Up there with the best pubs in Bristol.The Bristol Flyer, as it's traditionally known, is a friendly pub on the Gloucester Road serving seriously good pub food and an array of speciality drinks more dizzying than our classic trompe d'oeil floor. Head for one of our cosy, relaxing sofas and you'll soon recover. As a venue we're versatile (like a potato but better) and well kitted out for both intimate dinners and group gatherings.
