Bustling bar on the same street as the Famous Royal Navy Volunteer and Beer Emporium. Good and varied selection: a handful of beers from Left Handed Giant and the rest is filled with high quality guest taps. Flights of 5 (1/3 pints) available for 7.50 GBP. The water tap has a Stella taphandle: nice touch. Knowledgeable staff and very fast service. The burger was okay.

Nice bar / brew pub that I hunted down in Bristol based off the rave reviews here on RateBeer. Strong craft selection, in addition to a lot of their own beers. Beautiful bar with a DIY feel (think pallets and barrels), although the loos were a bit dingy. Definitely worth a trip if you’re in Bristol.

Given the number of trendy place popping up in Bristol, Small Bar still feels like the original and best. Could do with a better book selection in ’the library’. I found a copy of twilight on the shelf.

2015-09-20. The one bearded staff member here could be John Graham from Church Key’s skinnier English little brother. He was walking through the beers with the very excited female bartender. "Best day ever!!!!" I told her I enjoyed her enthusiasm. The pub itself is cozy, with a couple of large barrels serving as tables in the main bar area, and a more traditional seating area in the side room as well as tables outside. They were hosting a sour beer/Left Handed Giant tap takeover event today as part of Bristol Beer Week. Solid tap list, and some decent bottles in the fridge as well. Nice spot. I came back again the next day and one of the other bartender remembered me. My favorite of the beer spots that I visited in Bristol.

Bristol’s bees’ knees. The top contneder on the new King Street Run, full of cask, craft and imported beers - the latter the weakest spot. Great minimalist handpulls. Feels like a classy bar. Staff more enthused than at its two near neighbours. but it is early days. Serves decent enough examples of what passes for food among craftinistas.

Excellent place, almost certainly the best spot in Bristol. Great draft selection, lots of local offerings, plus many other UK stalwarts. Loads of stuff in bottle from around the world. Decent pricing, and they also offer a flight of five draft beers for £7.50 (1/3 pours). Very friendly and attentive staff. Nicely laid out area inside, with more seating outside. It looks like they have nice food, although we didn’t eat on our venue. The missus had a cup of tea and gave it a rave review.

A must-visit if you are in Bristol.
