MWarner - would it have been too much for your friends to have asked before they engorged?I hesitate to say it, but I think they were somewhat previous in their actions.

Awful staff.... avoid at all costs! Terrible service!! We were having a beer in the beer garden when we were very rudely asked to come inside as they were closing the outside part of the venue by being approached by a horrible female bar staff saying ' you aren't even smoking so you need to go inside!' not exactly wat we were expecting... awful service!

I have been going to this pub quite regularly, mainly because of the vicinity to university and their good choice of beers. However, yesterday friends of mine were thrown out of the pub for committing the crime of eating food which they did not order at this pub. Why? They were hungry and wanted to order food at the Highbury Vaults, but since the kitchen closes at 8.30, they decided to get food somewhere else and bring it back to eat it in the courtyard. They had had been drinking there for a while and were simply hungry. What a crime to commit. The way they were treated is a disgrace and I will boycott this place from now on. Apparently the landlord is 'liberal' and open minded. Yesterday's experience proved otherwise. very very poor!!!

Gem of a pub - unchanged in decades and oodles of character. Owned by Wells & Youngs, but don't let that put you off - along with their dull offerings they offer a good selection of guests from local breweries. On the expensive side but, nonetheless, highly recommended.

My first visit and I don't know why I haven't been here before - what a super little pub! Lovely "dark" interior with a tiny little bar at the front and a larger room at the back (split in smaller drinking areas). Courtyard at the rear; bar billiards table; food and a good range of beers despite being a Youngs pub. We had Bath Gem and Spring Tide from Teignworthy. Very cheery young lady behind the bar and although quiet when we visited this would be a great pub at anytime and will become a regular when we next go to Bristol. It is not that far from Clifton Down station or there is a bus nearby but make the effort and give this pub a visit - I think you'll be pleased you did!!
