Interesting old pub, with friendly staff and customers. Good to hear it's open again. Old fashioned, with newspapers kept for customers.

Used to be a good pub but gone downhill. Rude staff and generally unfriendly feel to the place.

I know the Stag becuase I have played a few gigs at this pub.

The Stag and Hounds - as of 2012 - been taken over by the same team that run the Mothers Ruin pub in Bristol. Similar kind of feel but bigger Pub, lots of room downstairs plus a maze of rooms and corridors, open air smoking patitio (with seats and tables) plus a function room upstairs.

Holds regular music nights, from Open Mic nights with Bristol legend Howlin Lord to full touring bands and local support bands. Not yet over-crowed but steadily getting busier and busier since it reopened.

serves food - burgers and ciabattas, snacks etc., holds quiz nights - And I think is a free House.

Another pub that has been shut for a while, but now re-opened. Hopefully it will have better luck this time, although it was quite quiet on a recent Thursday evening visit. Itís a few years since Iíve been in here so Iím unsure how much has changed, but it doesnít obviously appear to have been refurbished.

Inside itís one long open room, although wood partitioning does break up the space somewhat to give the feel of different bars. The colour scheme is somewhat gloomy with dark green paint on the walls and black paint on the ceiling. A single matching green sofa was in front the large fire-place, other than that the furniture was mostly conventional tables and chairs. There was also some wood cladding on the wall at the far end, and a couple of stuffed animal heads (a stag and a fox, appropriately) on the wall. A raised area in one corner looked as though it got used by bands on occasions as there was some equipment dotted around.

There is a small roof terrace which is an unusual feature, and I imagine this would be a bit of a sun trap. No views unfortunately though, other than a small railing through which you can see the Temple Way roundabout! There is also an open mic night on Tuesdays.

Beers on offer were Doom Bar and Black Sheep, both of which were reasonably priced at £2.80. Ciders were Addlestones, Magners and Thatcherís Gold.

Well, it re-opened early 2011 and then a couple of weeks ago curtains went up around the ground floor and the doors locked. There has been some activity in the last couple of days, so it could well be open again soon?
