Drinks and pub food flow freely here. Very busy all the time. Only drawback is the parking situation. They do have their own lot but it's small and street parking near the pub is difficult because there are so many other businesses in that area. Get on their email list for the special seasonal beer dinners. Lots of fun

Many beers on tap, good choice of food and reasonably priced. My wife and I had two sandwiches with salad and potatoes and it was great.

Great food, but the prices just went up! Service is very good, clean and the drinks are cold. Worth a visit...

Service depends on the night and crowds, But it's a nice place to sit and wait for service. They have a nice selection of beers. We normally just get snacks, so I don't feel I can comment on the food.

Good food, drinks, atmosphere and location! They have a tiki bar and deck. Also music upstairs near the larger bar.

The food is always good, and great selection for beers. Only problem is usually wait times and service. Not well organized with flipping tables.

This is a great bar inside and out. They have several decks and bars. The outdoor seating is great as well as the outdoor bar. The only downside is they allow smoking at the outdoor bar, not great.

This was a recommendation from our family so on the way back through we had lunch here and were not disappointed. Husband had the meatloaf mountain and the mashed potatoes were excellent, the loaf was average. I had the fish and chips and it was very good, everyone else was satisfied with their meal and the service was excellent.

This place is a staple in Bristol. The food is very good, the wait staff is fantastic, and the beer selection is excellent. We go her 3 or 4 times per month. Seating outside in the summer is very enjoyable. Give the place a try!

Excellent food and service. Sitting out on the deck was a plus. Got a bit loud as the evening progressed.
