Title: The Bristol Pub Crawl
Creator: Clive Thompson

This crawl took place on 28th September 2009. I was staying in Bath with a couple of mates and another PG member suggested meeting up for a beer in Bristol. It soon became apparent that this wasn't going to be just a quick beer, a full blown crawl around some of Bristol's top real ale pubs was on the cards.

Switch to route map:


The Bank Tavern (1)
First pub of the crawl and an excellent choice. Friendly pub with some excellent beers including the Moor Merlin’s Magic.
The White Lion (2)
Small pub with a precarious descent to the Gents toilets. Beer of choice was Wickwar’s Bankers Draft
Commercial Rooms (JD Wetherspoon) (3)
Not one of the best Wetherspoons I’ve been in and the Robinsons Tit for Tat wasn’t up to much either.
Seven Stars Public House (4)
A little off the beaten track so we were lucky to have a local guide with us. A proper pub with a good range of beers in excellent condition, notably the Rudgate Northern Fen.
The Cornubia (5)
Historic and attractive looking pub, inside it seems a bit disorganised but that gives it a lived in feel. Beer was Hidden Brewery Old Sarum.
Kings Head (6)
On the National Inventory of Historic Pub Interiors, there’s a snug bar at the back with one long corridor alongside the bar. Very decorative throughout with glass panelling and old advertising
Bridge Inn (7)
Another small pub, in which this part of the country seems to excel. There was a decent selection of beers and I had a good pint of the 5.5% Cheddar Goats Leap.
Knights Templar (JD Wetherspoon) (8)
Last pub on our crawl and I finished off with the 6% Cwmni Bragdy Bleddyn 1075, which presumably I ordered by pointing. I certainly wouldn't have attempted to say it, not without the use of a safety net anyway.
