“Great pub, great food!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 August 2014

Lovely pub to visit on a summers evening where you can sit outside by the harbour. Food is really good, best steak I've had in ages and at a very reasonable price! :)

“Always loved this place. Such a great authentic boozer with great pub food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2014

Atmospheric, great location, giant sandwiches, great staff and good beer all go together to make this one of the best pubs on the planet. Go on a sunny day, get the ferry boat or grab a pre match drink before City play. If you like proper pubs you won't be disapointed.

“Still fab after all these years :)”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2014

Love this pub in particular on a nice summers day or evening as inside is 'cosy' so much prefer it outside the pub :)
Food has always been and still is amazing and the price is good
Would always recommend this pub.....

“Proper pub”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 March 2014

Must have been here, err, hundreds of times. Big, big lunches. If you want Sunday lunch get in early. Brilliant location. Toilets are a bit grim but who cares.

“Proper boozer!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 February 2014

My spiriual home and still the best Pub in Bristol. That's my opinion anyway but I don't want it getting packed out as it takes long enough to get served on a busy day as it is!
