Alan Winfield left this review about The Three Lions

The Three Lions has a large England flag covering its upper half with BS3 on it,they do seem proud of the BS3 post code in this area of Bristol.
Once inside there is an L shaped room which has a tiled floor,the bar is on the left side,the seating is normal tables and chairs to the front right and tall tables and chairs to the rear right,there is a pool table on a raised area to the rear right,you get a good view of Bristol Citys ground from the rear windows.
There are no real ales on the bar,i had a drink of Courage Best which was a decent enough keg bitter.
There is a large TV to the front which was showing football.
The pub seems to be a shrine to Bristol City with the wall covered in posters of Bristol City and its players.
This is a decent pub just a shame about the lack of a real ale.

Blackthorn _ left this review about The Three Lions

Currently the only remaining pub at this end of West Street, it’s a traditional, no frills boozer and is clearly one of a few pubs in the vicinity that has a strong allegiance to the nearby Bristol City football club. From previous visits I seem to recall a good sized beer garden at the rear with good views of the ground, although we did not investigate this on a recent mid-week visit.

Internally the pub is all one open plan, L-shape room and the walls are liberally plastered with all sorts of BCFC memorabilia such as photographs and a montage of press reports. The red and white colour scheme extends to the banquet seating and even the blinds on the windows. Flooring was some sort of lino and a plasma was showing, appropriately enough, a football match. A partition wall made out of green bottles separated the rear area of the pub slightly and there was also a retro style jukebox with what looked like 8-track cartridges in it. Lighting was quite bright creating a somewhat harsh atmosphere. A doorway to the side presumably led outside and was used by smokers, and whilst they no doubt complied with the law by having their cigarettes an inch or two the other side of the door, this did nothing to stop all the smoke drifting back in.

Unfortunately there were no real ales on tap, just a couple of unmemorable keg options. Ciders fared somewhat better with Thatcher’s Gold and Blackthorn.
