Blackthorn _ left this review about The Quadrant

A popular street corner pub in the heart of Clifton village that perhaps has something of a wine bar feel to it rather than your traditional pub, but nonetheless it’s a pleasant enough place. It’s not a massive pub by any means, and can easily get quite busy, although the mirrored wall at one end creates the illusion of the bar being bigger than it actually is. The large windows on two sides offer a good view of the comings and goings outside.

The décor is contemporary with a mix of exposed stonework and white plaster, wooden flooring and a few leather sofa’s around. Downstairs is what might be described as a wine cellar with a few stools along the bar, leather cube seats and a selection of wine related drawings on the wall. The top of the bar is an unusual feature, being inlaid with the labels from various wine crates.

We were down in this bar for a wine tasting evening, showcasing some wines from the Loire Valley. I’m not a wine expert by any stretch of the imagination, but it was an interesting evening with half a dozen wines to try and a few nibbles as well. The guy doing it clearly had lots of knowledge and enthusiasm, and took the trouble to go round the room chatting to us individually as well as giving an introductory talk about each glass.

Although we didn’t eat on this occasion, from previous experience the menu offers a choice of pub grub, particularly pizza’s and a few sausage related dishes (the pub is owned by the same guys that run the Clifton Sausage around the corner).

Beers on tap were Butcombe, Gem and Prescott Track Record. The solitary cider was Ashton Press.
