Cheddar Ales Totty Pot Dark Porter, Goat's Leap IPA & Gorge Best, Three Castles Saxon Archer, Plain Ales Inspiration, Beartown Bearskinful, Goffs Camelot, Matthews Brassknocker (I have a note saying the pub owner, Mr Dawkins, also of Portcullis, took over that brewery?). Upper walls are decorated with old pumpclips, lounge area rear right has leather sofas (grrr), but not bad if you commandeer it in a group; bookcase, board games, a variety of brewery trays & other breweriana. Left to covered smoking arbor & picnic sets. Expensive, but the barmaid was very friendly & offered tasters of the beers.

Slightly dissapointed after many glowing reviews that I had heard. True, there was a great selection of beer but the pub did feel a little down at heel. On a Tuesday night there was nobody else in there, so maybe it was the lack of atrmosphere.
There's a small outside patio area but this is quite tatty with a lot of rubbish lying around. Staff were friendly enough though.
Thatcher's Gold and Westons Scrumpy on tap.

One of the best ale pubs in Bristol, with a fine range (and decent condition on my visit) – seven ales and cider, I didn’t take a comprehensive list but I know my Goffs and Wye Valley were both good beers. Expensive though, I thought. Staff and punters were friendly, and I enjoyed the small square that constitutes the beer garden. The interior is nice, with some quaint touches (see pics). Don't be put off by the high-rise flats opposite, they're fine. Board games available as well a comfy leather sofa. I liked it here and will endeavour to return despite the git of a climb.
