As was the case for all the pubs in Brislington, this was a Courage house and in the 1970’s they were forced to sell it to Bass Charrington. The last two long-standing tenants, Harold Godfrey, followed by Norman Wright were superceded by Bass making this a managed house due to its success. Unfortunately, the place went downhill in the 1990’s due to mis-management.
Starting the new century, it re-opened following a mysterious fire and underwent a refurbishment in October 2007 in the hands of Punch Taverns. At that point it offered four real ales and a selection of other beers, lagers & ciders and food.
Due to further problems, the Pilgrim closed early June 2008 and did not re-open until mid September under new management. It changed hands again in May 2009. Also in May, the Pilgrim, along with the Bloomfield Inn and Sandringham Hotel had windows smashed, which was reported in the Bristol Evening Post.
The Pilgrim closed (again) on Monday 5th October 2009. It re-opened 28th of October 2009 under new management, this time by an operator that has two successful pubs in Bedminster & Clifton. It has since changed hands again, but the function room has now been converted into flats.
Check the opening hours - the last time I called here on a Saturday evening it was closed!

Don't go to this Pub! The food is rubbish and the extremely unfriendly guy behind the bar was a moron. The Sunday roasts have to be seen, we were all laughing at how bad it was. If you like lots (AND I MEAN LOTS) of gravy you might like it. But I like food to taste of what it actually is and not of a revolting brown putrid liquid. At one point I have to restrain a few carrots from floating off down the table. And they only had one ale on, out of what looked like a possible 4 or 5. No wonder there was practically no one else in.
