Blackthorn _ left this review about The Lazy Dog
This is a sister pub to The Windmill in Bedminster and The Pipe & Slippers in Montpelier. In many ways it feels more like a café/bar than your traditional pub, in spite of a good array of hand pumps facing you as soon as you walk in, and the majority of punters appeared to be eating on our visit. It looks like the sort of place that would attract plenty of “yummy mummies” during the day, although they do have a stated policy of no kids after 7:30pm which makes a nice change.
It’s a U-shaped pub with a dominant marble bar across the middle. The colour scheme is mostly a slightly depressing shade of dark green, and there is also much wooden cladding both on the walls and making features such as individual booths on the right hand side of the bar as well as an attractive parquet wooden floor. The left hand side is of a more open design, with a fresher white-washed wall covered in a large variety of different mirrors. There are a few benches on a small decking area at the front of the pub to watch the world go by as well as a beer garden apparently, although we didn’t check this out on our visit. Staff seemed friendly enough.
There’s a reasonably succinct menu consisting of Tom’s Pies (from Devon) and a selection of snacks, tapas, etc. There was also a special board with a few additional starters, mains and deserts. The pies were very pleasant, and good value at £4.40. That said, by the time you’ve added the obligatory mash, peas and gravy the price had crept up to £7.50 but we still thought it reasonable value for a decent dish.
Beers on tap were BBF Sunrise and No. 7, Bath’s Barnstormer and Goff Brewery’s Jouster from the Cotswolds. Ciders were Thatcher’s Gold, Orchard Pig and a welsh Farmhouse Cider. The menu also mentioned Addlestones, although I didn’t spot this on the bar.
