Back once again. Trundles on like it has for many a year – it’s a nice traditional place but also very small, narrow and generally awkward which makes finding a comfortable spot to sit a pain. Good selection of six cask on with a range of styles and strengths, my Mallinson Rakau Calypso was far too astringent for me but in decent nick nonetheless (NBSS 3.5) though the dirty glass took the shine (arf!) off proceedings a bit. Also some decent ciders.

Little change to this classic Bristol pub since my last review a year ago. Absolutely packed on our Friday afternoon visit (and again when I returned later in the evening). Three ales sampled, condition-wise a bit like Carol picking out the numbers on Countdown, one from the top of the pile, one from the middle and another a bit lower down the scale. It’s certainly a destination venue and a shoo-in for a crawl in the area. Rated 8

Over the last couple of years the place has new ownership (again!) and seems to be heading (dare I say it) upmarket; but in a positive way. A lot of work has been done both inside and out – a fenced-off garden area, thorough paint job, wall-to-wall beermats and the addition of cushions on the benches inside. Fish tank to rear. Usually around eight ales on. I’ve had a mixed experience over the last year with the quality though last month’s visit was very good, so hopefully that’s settled down (and also hopefully no more nasty Glastonbury brewery!?). Pieminister pies and pasties available. Also does a CAMRA discount. Whilst I’d personally choose the Seven Stars if pressed for time in the area, this one is certainly worth popping into. Rated 8

August 2009
My most recent yielded a strange mixture of Rocky Horror and Disney on the speakers and a paddling pool for the punters outside. You make your own mind up on that one. Good service from a friendly barmaid. Seemed to be less guest beers available then previously, which is a shame. Saying that, it's still worth a visit. Rated 7

This Georgian survivor takes a bit of finding...pop into the Kings Head first if you're stuck and ask for directions. Now run by the Hidden Brewery, this is a top-notch old-school alehouse inhabited by real drinkers and some real characters. On my last visit me and my mate were accosted by an Andy Fordham lookalike and spent a surreal 30 minutes discussing the merits of Scottish Lower Division football (do you know who the best-supported team are in terms of catchment area? Apparently it's St Johnstone). Rated 9

My type of pub - small, traditional inside. Large beer garden out the front. Shield from the outside world with fencing that presents a minor challenge to get in but once there, you feel you are in an isolated and secure world.

Beers from Elland Brewery in excellent condition and knowledgeable staff.

Recommended but make sure you check the opening hours. Sunday evenings are early closing.

Another hazy memory of a previous visit five years ago put right by a revisit. A hidden away small pub that is big on beer, a great selection of cask ale across the styles. rammed on a Friday lunchtime so patience was required while waiting to be served, however my revolutions Switch #15 was well worth the wait.
