Graham Coombs left this review about Small Bar

A hipsterish craft place in two adjoining buildings, with the bar to the left and a tabled room to the right. Entering the bar, the first things apparent are a couple of beer tanks and a vast beer list on the wall behind the bar. This at first glance appears to be keg (and key-keg) only but on closer inspection there are a couple of handpumps without handles hiding amongst the taps, on this occasion offering an extremely nice Tiley's Dark Mild, although priced in 2/3rds. On closer examination, this appears to be an attempt to minimise the price variations, with the most expensive being priced in 1/3rds, some in halves, and the cheapest in 2/3rds. So you pay more or less the same but may get much less beer! Anyway, there are something like 20 brews in total, including sours and stouts alongside lager and IPA. The bottle and can list appears to be on a tablet. A good place for the beer enthusiast, if you can put up with the trendy bits and prices. Note is card only.

First pub on a Saturday crawl round Bristol. Craft keg is not really my thing, but I went along with it for the team. Beer was OK, bar was very quiet at 12 noon on a Saturday, people started to arrive as we left at 12:30. Decent rustic decor and knowledgeable staff made it worthwhile. Good bar if you like keg, like I said, not my thing.

Fashionable ale house with front bar, barrel tables, beer chalk boards, with a side area giving a large sitting space and almost beer keller like. There moto appears the be 'we don't serve pints', rather 1/3rds, halves and 2/3rds. There is a mixture of real ale and craft beer and the quality was rather impressive.

All round great place to try a few beers.
