enjoying a quiet drink with my wife last Saturday I unfortunately witnessed some extreme rudeness and bad language by a male bar person towards a small group of older gentleman who called in for a pint. Never again. We have advised all friends and family

This looks dark and gloomy from the outside but the back room was warm and sunny. We couldn't understand why it wasn't busier. Everyone was friendly and helpful and the food was great. Prompt service and nicely presented. Good range of choices. We'll return!

Really nice & friendly bar, we've walked past numerous times but never ventured in, welcoming & a great pub dog! Assistant MGR gave us a lovely warm welcome and even served us drink to the table when she was quite. Perfect place for locals as everyone obviously know each other! We'll be back!

One for the well healed, staff more interested in talking to each other than serving customers. Poor lighting and warm wine.

Enjoyable Saturday afternoon sitting outside with a glass of wine between shopping Clifton's special village. Landlord & son plus locals very friendly & welcoming . 30 years since my last visit but the hospitality from shop owners & Brunel Bar will ensure we'll be back soon.

This place has many great memories and is still a fun place to pop into when in Clifton. It's full of locals who all know each other, there is plenty of colourful banter and the food is always fresh and well presented so what's not to like. Free half hour parking gives you time to order, find a real parking... More

We dropped in after a long walk in Clifton and Bristol and were tempted by the special lunch offer. We had delicious crab sandwiches served with fries and salad. We ate in the little back room with the skylight and it felt very cosy. Well recommended if you are in the Mall area.
