I was very interested to read the comments as for sure, in this Brexit Britain, the sight of a union jack and St. George's Flag festooned pub replete with pictures of Spitfires and God Save the Queen signs might be a too much for some - including me. Happily, the decor is so over the top as to render it probably benign and it's heartening to see a representative of the pub stress that they are far from anti-European and are welcoming to all. The beers selection was superb, there are pork pies and turtles in a tank while the building is characterful indeed. It was also a very mixed crowd with plenty of women and non-white people.

During my recent visit to Bristol I visited here twice. Admittedly both visits were just for a quick pint but I found the beer good and staff and customers friendly. Please ignore some of the previous stupid comments and come and enjoy a proper decent pub.

I have been in this excellent pub many times over the years and fail completely to understand LittleDrummerBoy's comments. Ignore them and come here to enjoy the fantastic beers. One of Bristol's essential visits.

I'll be very upfront as I am the landlady's daughter so just wanted to get that out of the way, no denying I'm a little biased! I respect everybody's opinions & reviews but must say that I think the below review is a little much. Yes there are flags & military photos (the majority of which are of my uncle who served & sadly passed away) but 'anti-European' & many of the other connotations used we certainly are not. Over the 6 years we've been here most people have enjoyed the kookiness of the decor hence why it has been added to. Our staff, regulars, customers & friends come from all walks of life & are nothing but friendly & welcoming to every single person that walks through the door. Any constructive criticism is gladly taken onboard by all here but if you are reading these reviews, I'd urge you to come & experience the atmosphere yourself (as well as the beer of course - it is pretty spectacular :) )

I'm an easy-going, amiable late-40s year old male and - if pushed - I would describe my personal politics as fairly left-leaning, but anti-fascist first and foremost. This is mainly because I was bought up in a time and place where the hate-filled National Front and Combat 18 et al were at their height and I bore witness to some of their tactics used against anybody "other" in my community. I thought we'd moved on apace from those times, but this place just seems to be a museum to those sentiments. Like others have iterated - overly patriotic to the point of nationalistic, jingoistic, militaristic, anti-European, etc, etc.... Whilst all this is not that overt, you just get a certain feeling of unease at all of the pointers around you on the walls and lying around the place if you take the time to look. If that's the vibe they're going for, then this place ain't for me.
Having said all that, the beers tried were good, with the Ashover Liquorice stout being a favourite.
