I think that Small Bar had the best selection of draught beer out of everywhere that I visited in Bristol. A lot of taps that rotated just as I was sat there on a Saturday night. Many locals as well as farther afield and lots of new ticks. The staff were quite knowledgeable and friendly. All beer is served in one or two third measures. I had a very tasty portion of deep fried pickles, which were recommended. Got quite busy into the evening. Would have gone back and tried it again on Monday, but it wasn’t open (but usually would be).

Visited on Monday 10th November 2014. In the centre of Bristol, the place is in front of the Beer Emporium. This modern place has a good beer selection with special british beer geek on tap as Siren, Kernel and Buxton. The price is ok and the ambiance was soft. Cool place.

Expensive and pretentious - they don’t do pints just 2/3 litre. What the fucks that about. Will probably appeal to the gullible geeks who like Brewdog.

This has opened since our last visit to Bristol and it is a great addition. It’s not so small, there are 2 distinct areas for drinking and even though there is an attempt to make it look old or shabby chic it still needs wearing in. But there is certainly no argument on the beer front, an excellent range of Breweries and styles. A must visit now, King Street is certainly becoming the place to be.

My favourite of the bars I visited in Bristol. Staff are really friendly and knowledgeable about what they serve, and there’s a strong emphasis on serving local brews. Atmosphere was excellent, airy and bright inside, and with limited outdoor seating as well. My first stop next time I’m in the city.

The latest in the Bristol Triangle of modern beer bars. Great selection served in thirds, halves or two-thirds (no pints). Be warned - once in King Street it is hard to leave.

Another craft beer bar in Bristol you say? These guys are spoiled! Small bar is a very contemporary place all-round with a stripped back interior, exposed brick walls and wooden barrels as tables. The venue itself is not actually that small and is separated into a couple of rooms. They offer a brilliant selection of 25 draught beers - mostly keg, but also some cask…. all displayed on a board behind the bar. They supply a very nice mix of breweries and styles. On our visited there was Moor Fusion on cask, Tiny Rebel, Siren, BBF, Tempest and Cromarty to name but a few. They also have an interesting bottle selection with BA siren, Wild Beer, Elixir, Moor etc. The staff are attentive and knowledgeable about the products they sell. They are also due to start brewing in a week or two to boot. All round pretty excellent and could give the top London craft bars a run for their money.

Newly opened bar just across the street from the Navy Volunteer. Offers an excellent range of beers in casks, kegs and bottles from the likes of Wild Beer, Kernel, Magic Rock, Wiper & True and Redchurch, sold by knowledgeable staff. Pleasant wood and brick interior design too, with plenty of seating. Has plans to open its own brewery. Another great addition to the Bristol beer scene.
