A narrow fronted pub but hard to miss as it is now painted in a bright azure blue. Inside its a fairly basic single room with some ornate floor tiling, normal tables and chairs provide sensible seating, the bar is at the far left hand side of the room and boasts four handpumps, my visit was about 10.00 in the morning for a decent breakfast and just two beers were on from Goffs and Bristol Beer Factory. I was the only customer in at that time so I can only imagine there would be a decent atmosphere with a few punters in.

Something of a hidden treasure, this small single-room Victorian back-street bar has survived the urban renewal around it and provides a great contrast to the nightclub next door. The floor is boards, the décor sombre, the staff pleasant and the food good value. It's especially busy at lunchtimes, though for some reason it's quiet most evenings. There are various tables for diners, space for drinkers and convivial atmosphere. Of the 5 handpumps only two were on; I had a pint of WTF which was in excellent condition, and had I not been driving, I would have had many more. Convenient for the City centre and very handy for the marina, I'm sure I shall be back.

The Portwall is a narrow fronted pub that is fairly close to Temple Meads station.
Once inside there is a single oblong shaped room which runs to the rear,the room is carpeted and has comfy bench seating and some normal tables and chairs.
There were four real ales on the bar,i had a drink of Bath Ales Jem,which went down very well,i only noted one other real ale which was Electric Bear Red Bear.
There was a TV on showing rugby and the pub was fairly busy on my early Saturday evening visit.
I really took to this pub,one i could stay in for a good session,a good pub to end my Bristol crawl in.
