A pleasant Dawkins pub in the heart of St Werburghs, it sits on a street corner near the indoor climbing centre and has a few picnic benches outside, although on a recent warm summer’s evening these were all full and many of the punters had spilled over on to the patch of grass behind the pub. The barmaid seemed pleasant and friendly.

The main bar at the front of the pub has rough wooden boards on the floor and a pale yellow colour scheme on much of the walls along with contrasting deep red and green paint on the woodwork. Being a corner plot there are windows on two sides making it feel light and airy. Seating was a mixture of wooden pews around the perimeter and somewhat threadbare bar stools. A small brick fire-place was at the front of the pub, but in this warm weather all it had in it was a bunch of flowers. A small TV was up above the door, although this was not in use on our visit. Numerous old beer mats were tacked on to the beams suggesting a regularly changing selection of ales. Up a couple of steps to the rear was a smaller room containing a pool table along with a book case containing a selection of books being sold in aid of St Peter’s Hospice. Unfortunately the smell from the loos was rather prominent here.

Beers on tap were all detailed on a board next to the bar, as well as a couple more that were coming soon. Being a Dawkins pub, there was a trio available from them with Bristol Best, Miner’s Gold and Bristol Blonde. Also available was Woodforde’s Flagondry, Prescott’s Summer Seasons Best and Manchester Pale Ale from JW Lees. Ciders were also well represented with Thatcher’s Gold, Stowford Press and Weston’s Old Rosie.

Popped in here on the strength of it being a Dawkins outlet. Surprisingly for a Saturday afternoon me and my mate were the only ones in here. Four ales on - Sharps Special, Harviestoun Pitgarmigan(?), London Pride and St Austell Tribute were no complaints as to quality. The wooden bar back was pretty, with hops hanging. The place seemed to lack a bit of charm, probably due to the emptiness. I’d give it another go though.

A proper Bristol pub.

Welcoming, no nonsense pub frequented by a friendly mix of locals and climbers from the adjacent indoor climbing wall.

The owner, Glen loves his boozers - he has three in Bristol.

The Miners has kept it's traditional wood and tile interior and boasts a pool table out back with loads of space and an outdoor bog!

It's a free house and you can expect good quality guest beers, well kept.

All pubs should be more like this.
