user reviews of Bush, Totterdown

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

A large and relatively modern pub, the front and rear bars have a distinctly different feel to them. The front area is very much the “public bar” with very limited seating, a tiled floor, fruit machine and a plasma showing a football match that had the volume up far too loudly. There is also a table football game in an adjacent room.

The rear bar is all together much more pleasant being carpeted throughout with plenty of seating, mostly wooden tables and chairs but a couple of leather sofa’s as well. It’s just a shame that the football commentary from the plasma in the front was still a little intrusive. There are also a couple of pool tables in a sectioned off area at one end. A supposedly old advert for “Bridgewater Canal Carriers” with a picture of an old canal barge on it made me chuckle since the marketing person who came up with it clearly doesn’t know the correct spelling of Bridgwater.

The best part of the pub though is the wooden decking at the rear with fantastic views across the city. This covered and sheltered and so was a pleasant spot even on a wet winter’s evening, although unfortunately this closes at 9:00pm, presumably to cut down on any noise disturbance to local residents.

The only beer on offer was keg Pedigree. Ciders were Blackthorn and Thatcher’s Gold.

Now branded as Marstons since the EP pubs were taken over. Got a "how great this place is" review in the local entertainments rag the Venue that was total twaddle. The ale is keg pedigree,and all lagers were off on a Sunday night when I visited. Getting a pint of cider was an ordeal,it was unwise to interrupt the serving wench from her laptop and her business development program aka Freecell cos it was served with a grunt and with a sharp "you better not eat that here!" referring to my sealed Chinese takeaway.

Don't bother is the best advice.

Don't let the Bath Ales Gem pumpclip fool you when you're going past on the bus-its never on. Is it a cynical ploy to get you in to drink lager?!

There was some kind of a Eldridge Pope special celebration ale on a while back(that all the companys pubs HAD to have on) but evidently it,and the Gem,were reported by a respectable local real ale conniseur as "vinegar",with no sympathy offered from the staff on its return.

Asides-bit smokey,pretty (though not particularly interested girls) at the taps,local chav meeting place weekends before they move off to keep Avon'n'Summerset's gendarmes occupied down town.
