Choice pretty much the same as when Blackthorn was here, although they seem to alternate one of their Beers . Prices pretty cheap. Bar and Lounge.Sky telly.

A traditional old pub just next to the arches, this has had a bit of a spruce up as far as I recall from my previous visit, although that was a few years ago. The pub is divided in to two with the lounge bar to the left and the public bar to the right. Both bars have doors out in to the garden which seemed to be a popular spot with it�s covered and heated seating.

The lounge bar is a long room with wood flooring and burgundy paintwork on the walls, along with several old black and white photographs of the local area. A curved, wood panelled bar counter is on the right and a large plasma is mounted up in the back corner, although this was not in use on our visit. Seating was some type of grey vinyl benches all around the perimeter with small bar stools elsewhere. An old tiled fire-place was opposite the bar, there were old beer bottles up on shelves and a number of disco type lights were on the ceiling. The public bar to the right is a little more sports orientated, with a couple more TV�s that were in use, a pool table, darts board and table football game as well as the usual fruit and quiz machines. A large mural was painted on one wall.

Service at the bar was a bit hit and miss, on several occasions there was nobody about although this may have been because they were serving in the other bar. To start with, it all seemed very pleasant and much better than I recalled. Then someone approached with a large speaker and mounted it on a wall bracket just next to us, and proceeded to clamber around the seating trailing cables behind us. It soon became evident that was in preparation for karaoke, so we made our excuses and left at this point.

Beers on tap were Bombardier, Doom Bar, Tribute and Caledonian Autumn Red. Ciders were Stowford Press, Thatcher�s Gold, Blackthorn and Black Rat dispensed from a barrel sat on the end of the bar.

Been in and out of here a few times since I last reviewed,but had a more frequent spate of visits lately due to EXCELLENT Hopback Summer Lightning being available for �2.65 a pint!!! Mega friendly,though industrious landlord,and as has been seen before his good nature is reflected in his good humoured punters,when Bristolians can be a bit frosty and unwelcoming. Landlord is also a Billy Joel fan,which is liable to be played loud,but no one can be totally perfect I suppose.

Didn't get offered any dodgy dvds on any visit,Mr Pergola or whoever you are if you get offered any more can you get me "Westbury Wives" Volume 14-its the only one I need for a full set. Ta.

Great little boozer.

In the glory days when Scott and Jan ran it, this pub was the best in the area by a distance. Nosedived after they left, but seems to have been gradually improving recently. Good place to watch live sport, two decent sized rooms, each with outdoor seating.

Particularly recommended for those who enjoy being pestered every half hour by someone flogging pirate DVDs.
