This place is now the Lime Kiln. It's another small, single bar Bristol pub with just a couple of other customers in. Luckily some of the anarchist protesters attempted to enter as we arrived. But I don't think their lager of choice was available. We were happy enough with the ale selection though - Staggeringly Good Veloci Rapture, Byatts American Brown Ale, Yeovil Star Gazer, Vibrant Forest Vienna Pale Ale, Church End EU & Fat Cat Porter. Cider was Sandford Orchards Devon Mist. A CAMRA discount is offered.

New landlord (March 2012) and now open until 11pm again with plans for a later licence. Four well kept real ales. Very friendly bar staff. Great location near the center of town. Discount given to CAMRA members.

This pub has recently re-opened after being shut for some time, which is great to see. As yet though, it closes at 7:00pm during the week (Monday Thursday) so bear this in mind if youre making a special trip. Its quite a small pub, being split in to a bar area at the front, and an even tinier snug at the rear.

Its a while since I have been in here, so Im not sure how much has changed, but its still pretty much the same as far as I recall, although the loos have clearly been retiled and tidied up. The main bar at the front has a carpeted floor with lino around the bar, some wood panelling on the lower part of the wall with plenty of photographs and paintings up above, a small fire place and a small wood panelled bar. There is a brick backdrop behind the bat that looks as though it may have been a chimney breast at one time. A solitary black beam runs across the ceiling and this was adorned with horse brasses.

Theres a couple of tables outside to watch the world go by, and a basic food menu is offered. This was chalked on boards above the bar and consisted of Lasagne, Bangers & Mash, Burgers, Ham Egg & Chips, etc, with most dishes being around the 6 mark. There was also a selection of rolls in a basket on the bar counter. Barmaid seemed friendly enough, and most drinks were 2.50 a pint on Saturdays which suited me just fine as thats when I was there.

Beers on tap were Butcombe and London Pride. There was a third pump on the bar although this was not in use. Good choice of ciders with four from Thatchers Gold, Heritage, Traditional and Cheddar Valley as well as Happy Daze from Gwynt y Ddraig and a pump for Black Rat which was apparently coming soon. All in all a great little pub and well worth a visit.

Three real Thatchers ciders plus the gold and a couple of ales, I had the Otter and it was in good condition. Also tucked into a Herberts bakery roll with my pint, Nice! Hopefully it might extend its opening hours.
