pub recently taken over by Matt and Karen Wickham (of Evening Star, Brighton fame) increasing the range of beers available with a 7-tap keg font added around side of island bar. Spacious and always possible to find seating. Beers are always kept well. Soon to be sold (i.e. no longer a Butcombe pub). Good selection in fridges.

A nice old pub refitted with a stylish and spacious modern feel - sage green paintwork, comfy chairs and banquettes. It’s a Butcombe pub but the beer list is eclectic with an excellent choice of cask, keg and bottles. (Visited 17 December 2014).

Comfortable pub at the top of a hill working up from the harbour area. The range was just Butcombe beers, seemingly well kept on our visit. Worth a look if in the area.

Clean and tidy pub. I must have visited on a bad day because they only had two beers on tap and I’m sure the badge was wrong. Service was a little odd. Sat outside next to a noisy road. Good for a quick pint.

Visited with my bro Pete. Clean, slick interior. Butcombe on tap, plus a good cask range and some keg highlights. Like the place - not far from Megabus stop.

My favourite pub in Bristol. One of the very few with a genuinely exciting selection of beers. We walk half way across the city to go for a pint here.

Fin  (799) Merton, Oxfordshire, England, England | December 31, 2011
Visited here 27th December 2011, one of the few pubs that seemed to be bothered to open. Large open space on entering, range of beers was Butcombe (not sure which other than Gold) and with a Bristol Beer Factory Acer when we went there. The bottled beer selection looked very good. Comfortable pub, bit quiet when we were there, but friendly barman and as already mentioned v.close to Zerodegrees which was closed on the 26th & 27th December 2011.

Ladnewton’s review summarises this pub well. The award winning Smiles interior was ripped out to create a larger drinking area, but the replacement is pleasant enough. The Butcombe beers are drinkable, the bottled selection decent and you might get lucky with an unusual guest ale. Also just down the street from the Bristol branch of Zero Degrees. Pretty good all round.

Butcombe tied pub now occupying the site of the original Smiles brewery tap which closed in 2007. Full Butcombe range stocked plus two changing guest ales. In addition over thirty imported bottles are kept. Food available - an imaginative varied menu contains locally-sourced dishes.
