The Three Tuns was closed until 4pm yesterday, as it was close to the central riot zone and all of the police baracades. But I made the journey back here before starting my way towards the station. This is a larger pubs than it looks from the outside and has a courtyard garden. The ale range was mostly golden type beers - Vibrant Forest Vienna Rye Pale, Dorset Piddle Piddle, Arbor Motueka & Hoploader, Beerd Gambit, Black Flag El Dorado & Firebrand Graffiti IPA. Ciders were Westons Rosie's Pig & Worleys Mendip Hills. The latter cider was enjoyable. Another place offering CAMRA discounts and another good Bristol pub.

More low key than I expected although the range of ales was as good as billed, leaning towards the darker end of the spectrum. We enjoyed a truncated game of dominoes given the small number of pieces in the box while Friday afternoon is not perhaps going to be the busiest time. Worth a stop and conveniently located.

Second in a trio of pubs before and after the mighty U’s visit to Ashton Gate where we managed to salvage a draw from a winning position. The CAMRA guide describes the Three Tuns as beer nirvana, hyperbole in my view but an excellent range of Arbor ales and I’d certainly be happy to have this pub near me. I had a couple of pints of the excellent Blue Sky Drinking a best bitter which was very pleasant and then finished with the Breakfast stout, which was not bad but I’m glad I only had a half. The rest of the boys were drinking a yellow beer which also seemed to go down well. Pleasant interior and surprisingly few customers for a Saturday lunchtime, well worth a visit. 7.5/10

kernel on cask is a fairly good pint , that said at £4.10 after a camra discount its a bit stiff.

Spartan and negative reviews are bad are they?

What about yours? Are they acceptable because you leave them, especially if you are trying to berate all the pubs in the area to make yours seem better?

Hogshead, Bristol "I used to go here. It was horrible. " 2 Jan 2012 18:25

The Lizard Lounge, Clifton "Horrid student nightclub." 15 Sep 2011 18:48

The Hill, Clifton "This is Cotham, not Clifton. Nondescript large pub that I cannot imagine going to unless I really wanted to watch a football match with three hundred students". 15 Sep 2011 18:45

The Coronation Tap, Clifton "Had a horrible time when we last went here. Can't see why I would return. The bouncer seems to be having a laugh as well, and not in a good way." 15 Sep 2011 18:43

The Bishops Tavern, Bristol "This place is still vile. Sorry." 26 Jul 2011 14:45

And I could go on, especially if I included the reviews you leave with one of your sock puppet accounts.

Now, as I said, back in your cave you nasty little troll.
