This pub in a listed 17th century building in the heart of Bristol. Friendly staff, regularly rotating guest beers on the five hand pumps, makes this a good place to go if you're in the area. Combine this with a folk night (called a "sea shanty/Irish jam session") and weekly karaoke sessions, presented by John of Bristol, and you get a flavour of the kind of place it is. The beers good and it's not a terrible place to go - it still gets regular punters from the local offices, and they all seem to have a good time. Worth visiting, but if you don't like folk music, avoid Tuesdays.

What a transformation! New owners have changed this from a dingy, tatty pub to a bright, inviting space. Great range of beers on when we visited including wonderful Magic Rock Curious and Camden Hells. Kids made very welcome at weekends and they produced a high chair, colouring pad and crayons for my daughter without me even asking. Food was good - spicy chicken sandwich & pub platter (including purple eggs!) well worth a try. TVs not on when we were there and are saved for big events which was a refreshing change. Very much worth a visit if you're in town, we'll be heading back
