Back at the Railway Tavern and this is Still The Only Real 'Local' Pub in Fishponds!

Real Beer, Skittles, Darts, Dogs allowed if very well behaved, Cyclists are welcome and the Railway Tavern is just down the road from the Bristol and Bath Cycle-path!

And if you are a keen angler, you can chat for hours with the many resident anglers who drink here.....13lb 6oz or was it 15lb 10oz?

Football is also shown on three screens around the pub and there is a quiz on Sunday evening.

Overall-go old locals pub for more than just 'locals'.

We have lost the Greyhound and Cross Keys in Fishponds, but the Railway Tavern is still THE ONLY Real Pub left in fishponds.

The landlord is very keen and knows his stuff, if a beer is not up to scratch it does not go on.

Bar staff are attentive and also know their stuff too.

Overall.....A real local, for everyone, not just locals.

I did a relief management job in this place back in the seventies when it was called the Pecketts Flyer, and it's worth reporting that it's the only pub I've known to have had ten darts teams and fourteen skittles teams!
Just as well to know if you're playing in a home or away match!

About the ONLY DECENT PUB left in Fishponds....
Darts, Cards, Skittle Alley, and a weekly quiz night, plus football and rugby games shown on several screens around the bar area.

The only thing that they don't have is a pool table...But it's not that kind of pub anyway.

Usually 3 Real ales on and all in top form, and if they are not in top form they are not 'put on'!


Support YOUR local pub or it will close and all you will be letf with will be *ether$p^ons....
