We went to the Bristol Bar for food last night after a recommendation. I hadn't stepped foot in the pub since 2004 so didn't know what to expect.
Wow! What a difference the new management have made. We walked in to be greeted by friendly bar staff/management & a gorgeous labrador called Drogo. We took our two dogs with us & they were treated just like all the other paying customers.
The atmosphere in there was relaxing & the other patrons were friendly & chatty. We sat looking at views out over the sea & pier; it felt like being on holiday!
We ordered a main dish each which (veg lasagne & fish pie) were delicious & came with a side salad. What was especially nice was the food had just come out of the oven, not microwave.
We are so pleased we have found this gem of a pub & will definitely be there on a more regular basis.
I would seriously recommend this place to brighton-dwellers & visitors alike. Even though they have the friendliest dog policy in Brighton that I have seen, you don't need to to own a dog to enjoy this place.
