In the now backstreets of Bristol but perhaps that's to its advantage. This is a venerable old pub that seems to have a new lease of life without too much damage done inside. Enter up some steps to find a long and narrow interior with the bar running most of the length of the room. An old varnished wood floor, gold and green flock wallpaper, pew seating wood panelling (which has been painted racing green, one of the few colours you can ever paint the panelling without utterly ruining it!). Some incongruous pop art prints adorned the walls whilst a ‘just the right level’ modern jazz funk soundtrack played. Five pumps with four ales and a cider; 2x Bath (Gem and Lansdown - after a false start and a cloudy half, I got a good Lansdown), Clouded Minds (fair) and New Bristol Brewery Marshmallow Stout (good) alongside a cider. Friendly young barman who was happy to chat. A good local atmosphere within. I enjoyed it here and would make a point of doing it again, even though the beer quality wasn’t quite stellar. 7.5

A pleasant and traditional pub just around the corner from Bathurst Basin, it is surprisingly spacious inside being split over two levels, as well as a small patio area at the front, and, from memory, a further garden at the rear, although the lower level leading out to this was in darkness on our Monday evening visit.

Internally it’s fairly traditional with dark wood strip on the floor, green flock wallpaper on the upper part of the walls and a couple of shades of green paintwork elsewhere. A number of gilded mirrors were on the walls as well as some colourful artwork which was for sale. A small black fire-place was at the front of the pub and opposite this a couple of upright leather arm chairs. Elsewhere was a selection of chunky pine furniture.

Beers on tap were Summerleaze Golden Ale, Prescott Hill Climb and Arbor O2 Bomb. A fourth pump appeared to have run out and there were also a few more unusual options on keg. Ciders meanwhile were Bounders, Addlestones and Stowford Press. A poster outside also advertised that they were the home of Blackbeard cider, although I didn’t spot this on the bar.

The Golden Guinea is a nice looking pub.
Once inside there is a single oblong shaped room which runs to the rear,the floor is bare boarded,the seating pew type to the front.
There were two real ales that i noted,i had a drink of Tapstone Wild Wood,which was a decent drink,the other beer noted was Prescott Winter Season Best.
The background music was crap in my opinion.
A decent enough pub to have a few drinks in.
