Another city, another Brewdog bar & I usually make a point of visiting when I see a new one. Visited here on a Saturday evening & it was quite busy, managed to get a seat though. The atmosphere was initially good but got a bit noisy when a group of lads showed up & started chanting a lot. The selection was okay, not as much to choose from as some of the newer Brewdog bars but still enough to keep most happy. Service was as you’d expect from these bars & quite good but price wise, it was definitely a bit more expensive than most with prices on-par with London; I know it’s the south of England but even then it was steep (although I guess most places in Bristol are).
A warm atmosphere, the ambience is tailored towards everything craft. There are a couple of large wooden tables with stools, a few cosy, leather booths and thin across stone tables that allow for a great beer drinking experience. Outside has tables and stools in the day with a lovely view of the waterfront, fantastic in the sun. Staff are keen and knowledgable with great recommendations. More expensive than other beer bars in the area but its worth it in some respects as a wider selection of imports can be found here. I was over the moon to see Beavertown’s gamma ray on tap for a very reasonable price, had to seize my opportunity and have two. On my last visit I also picked up a Jackhammer IPA glass which I highly recommend to any IPA lover.
This place was stocked when I was there and the staff was really talkative and helpful. Cool modern atmosphere and a great location in Bristol. Stayed here for a few hours the beers on tap (a combination of BrewDog and guest offerings) were that inviting and the crowd wasn’t obnoxious. Will definitely be back the next time I’m in the area.
An amply proportioned BrewDog bar, with the usual range of keg and bottle offerings (BD, friends of BD, some local craft breweries). There’s a nice patio area outside, which is something not many - if any? - other BrewDog bars offer. The staff is, as with other BrewDog bars, well trained, friendly and efficient. The pricing is a little higher than other places in town - as is the case with other BrewDog bars!
Bristol has a lot of excellent bars, and this BrewDog doesn’t do enough to challenge them, I don’t think. Probably a top 10 destination in the city, but not top 5.

2015-09-21. I think I would have liked this bar more if I had not been to a number of other BrewDog locations before hand. It is physically smaller than some of the other ones. Seating is mostly high tops with stools, a handful of booths and some outdoor seating by the river that would be great on a nicer day. Friendly servers know the beers, but the tap list is short by BrewDog standards. Okay and worth a visit (I did still manage four new BrewDog ratings) but Cardiff had nicer atmosphere with a lot more beer available. Thinking it over more I actually like the space more than I originally gave it credit for, but the short beer list is still disappointing.
Visited on a Friday night in July 2015. This is a typical Brewdog venue, all modern and minimalistic with high tables and stools. Decent range of their own beer plus a smattering of guests. Staff were good, beer was good. To be honest these places are much of a muchness. If you’re a fan of the Dog then pop in.
Was my favourite brewdog venue for a long time. As usual fantastic service with tasters offered and staff taking their time to talk through selections available. Mix of booths, high table and concrete blocks. Usual beer range for Brewdog. Can get extremely busy.
