Blackthorn _ left this review about Bonds

A decent sized, street corner pub, it looks as though it may have been spruced up a bit recently and has a reasonably contemporary feel to it. and is certainly a great improvement from the time when it was known as the Town Crier.

Internally it’s been opened out in to one long, single room, although the smaller area to the left is up a couple steps and has a rather different feel to it. The main part of the pub has a sanded wooden floor, dark grey wood panelling on the lower part of the walls and very pale green paintwork up above. A feature wall at the far end was a much darker shade of green, and this had a couple of old pictures hung on it. Lighting was multiple exposed filament bulbs all strung out from a central rose much like a spider’s web. Seating was all tall tables and chairs, and some arched windows to the front were quite an attractive feature and included some stained glass at the top. The smaller area to the left felt somewhat cosier with carpet on the floor, bookcase effect wallpaper on one wall with deep red paint elsewhere and low leather sofas. A couple of arm chairs and a small table were in the bay window, and a disused fireplace was off to one side.

Unfortunately there were no real ales available, and I’m not even sure that there was anything on keg. Ciders fared slightly better with Thatcher’s Gold and Thatcher’s Haze being available, and there was also an extensive cocktail list if that’s more your thing. All in all I thought they done a decent enough job with this, and it certainly feels a little classier than many places in Weston, but the lack of any beer means that it is unlikely to appeal to the pub aficionado.
