The decor needs reassessing ! Why they've had get on the graffiti vibe I don't know ?! Unpleasant furnishings & garish lighting. This could have been forgiven if the Sunday roast had blown me away however … COLD roast potatoes and nut roast aren't forgivable...More

Totally bizzare. This hotel and pub/restaurant is unusual. The pub and building is as scruffy as they come. Broken glass panel in interior door, tatty stairs and toilets and very mixed clientele. We almost walked straight back out. However, the dining restaurant in the cellar...More

Beautiful old bar, in the centre of Bristol and if you're looking for a good choice of beverage you cannot go wrong. I was less impressed by the service on my visit last night. The bar tender in the middle of serving us actually broke...More

Thank you for taking the time to review us on this website. I can only offer our apologies if you found the service to be rude. I can only imagine that bartender was attempting to multi-task rather than cause offence. I would be grateful if...More

Tucked away in All Saints Lane in Bristol is the much-loved dining institution, The Rummer Hotel. This gorgeous, classic restaurant and cocktail bar is set inside a Grade II listed building, and with its forest green leather sofas, oversized open fire and historic cellar bar and dining room - the Hotel has a relaxed and welcoming home-away-from-home vibe. Perfect for weddings, group get-togethers and intimate dinner parties, The Rummer Hotel is independently run and the menu, created by a reknowned Head Chef, is filled with contemporary British dishes. The restaurant is popular on weekdays for brunch (don't miss the kedgeree or the The Rummer all-day breakfast) as well as providing a relaxed, sophisticated atmosphere for fine-dining in the evenings. A mind blowing array of fine spirits, and cocktail bartenders who know how to mix them, make The Rummer Hotel's cocktail bar one of the great classic bars, and a destination for cocktail lovers the world over.
