Blackthorn _ left this review about The Fallen Tree Micropub

A new opening on Clevedon’s popular Hill Road, this is housed in the premises of a former roofing and building company and is North Somerset’s first micro-pub. Owned by the Twisted Oak brewery in nearby Wrington, it follows the usual micro-pub trend of a stripped back interior, no music, etc. The barman was very friendly and helpful, happily offering samples to try and even providing packs of cleaning wipes for people whose spectacles had misted up. Never seen that in a pub before!

It consists of one single room internally and has a fairly basic, but certainly not unpleasant, feel. The plain walls are mostly painted in a deep shade of maroon with contrasting cream at the front. The bench seating running along the sides of the pub looks to be very much home made from a few planks of wood, although it was covered in velvet padding. Tables were a mismatch of styles, and some small beer barrels had also had velvet padding attached to make them in to small stools. Even the bar counter appeared to be made from old pallets. In contrast, the flooring was an attractive parquet wood design. A couple of pieces of artwork for sale were on the walls and there was a small book shelf in one corner. Lighting was provided by those exposed filament bulbs which are of course de rigueur in any pub renovation these days.

Beers were all racked up on stillage behind the counter and the available selection was displayed on a chalk board above this, along with the style and ABV. Their own beers featured prominently as might be expected with Fallen Tree, Spun Gold, Old Barn, Slippery Slope and Crack Gold. These were joined by Bristol Blonde and Tremendous Delicious from Bristol brewer Dawkins as well as Pitchfork’s Old Slug and Cheddar Ales’ Goat’s Leap. Ciders meanwhile were a dry, medium or sweet from Wilcox. All in all, a very welcome addition to Hill Road.
