user reviews of the Canteen, Bristol

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

Decent choice of local ales and a few ciders: good quality. Friendly community space and cafe, not a pub. I visited in the day time so not sure about evenings or the live music, but the food was home-cooked, tasty and good value.
Interesting mix of punters young and old, relaxed atmosphere and not as full of hipsters as I'd feared.
Well worth a visit for something a bit different.

Comfortable,laid back and relaxed.Decent varied range of four real ales available. Shockingly bad music(ambient style) was being played by the dj. 6/10

A large, non-descript sort of pub in what appears to be the ground floor of an office block. Unusually, there is no sign of the pub name from outside. The only clue as to the venue name is on the stencilled spray paint on the back of all the plastic chairs, presumably in an attempt to prevent them from being stolen. It was full to capacity on a recent Thursday evening visit, and quite noisy due to the harsh acoustics.

Its all one large, open space with the bar counter running most of the length of the back wall and a semi-open kitchen to the right. At the left hand end is a small stage area, and a band looked to be in the process of setting up. Its got a rather industrial feel to it with black floor, white walls and visible cable trays on the ceiling. The only sign of any cosiness is a small area in the front right corner which has a couple of old leather sofas, some artwork on the walls, a piano and several rows of bookshelves. The front of the pub is almost entirely glass, and this leads out on to a patio area with several tables and chairs.

Beers on tap were Glastonburys Golden Chalice, Baths seasonal Summer Hare, Butcombe Blond and Sunrise and No. 7 from Bristol Beer Factory. Ciders were Ashton Press, Ashton Still, Bounders and Gaymers Pear.

Building that comes across as a cross between a large class room, and an office in eastern europe , before the wall came down, with a strange community feel to it.
Bristol Beer factory , with a guest beer, one from yeovil. Quality of beer good.
