user reviews of the Fleece And Firkin, Bristol

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

You come herfe for the bands and not the beer but relieved to see that they had an ale straight from the cask "Bristol Steam" when here last night, which was decent enough. Apart from that they have a keg version of London Pride.

According to Venue magazine The Fleece has just been bought by Bristol band The Blue Aeroplanes. They promise a massive overhaul of the venue including updating the sound and lighting equipment, new toilets, much wider range of beers, wines & spirits and a live music policy like the good old days back in the 90s. This will mean the end of the road for the tribute bands at the Fleece (THANK GOD!!) and a return to decent live music 7 nights a week. It should be interesting to watch the changes over the coming months...

I'm not sure this really qualifies as a pub, but it's on here so I'll review it. It's more of a music venue, and as such you will have to pay to get in on many nights.
Over the years they've hosted many bands that have gone on to become famous, eg; Status Quo, Oasis, Amy Winehouse, The Killers, Muse, etc. Posters from these gigs are proudly displayed behind the bar. These days it mostly seems to be tribute acts, although many of these are very good.
It's a single large open room, with a very high ceiling. It's like being in some old warehouse, which is probably what it was at one time. There's very limited seating, just a few tables at the back which soon go. There's a bar running the whole length of one wall although even so it can be difficult to get served when they're busy.
Beer range is a bit dissapointing, with just Butcombe and Worthington Creamflow (whatever that is). Also Blackthorn cider.

Haven't been here since 1998 so what do I know, but I can't think it deserves 10/10!! It was always a good live venue and I believe it still is, but just for the sake of evening things out I'm going to give it a 6!
I'm sure others more knowledgeable than me will add something worthwhile shortly!

Great place to go hang out and see some live music, generally a mix of cover, unsigned and local bands however bands like bloc party, InMe and razorlight have played there recently.
And it has big metal poles, POLES!
