“Small to medium sized pub outside of city center, not far from the Moor brewery. Classic modern pub interior, there is a nice small patio in the back. 10 kegs and 8 casks, all seemed like local beers, no usual suspects. Good ranges of styles. Worth checking out.“

“Long bar in a narrow room with some tables outside. We've visited in the afternoon and place was half full. Good selection of their own beers, something like 10 taps. Couple of them I haven't seen that much, but mostly the usual stuff you see around. OK for a short stop, not sure I'd revisit.“

“Visited the 2nd November 2019 - Nice beer place in a modern building near to the city river path. Good atmosphere, good beer selection, pizza available. Beer for a good price, take care because this place can be really very overcrowded and noisy. Recommended.“

“To me this was not a great place for a pint. Very small taproom. I wanted to pay by card and they have a limit of five pounds which is fine if you are with more than 1 person. “

“Large Spoons at the side of Temple Meads station. The range of beer is dull and the food is decidedly average. Can get very busy although I've no idea why“

“Long narrow front room with taps. We tried several of the beers which was new for us. Ok service, but the staff seemed more interested in their pcs than the few customers inside. Not a place to stay.“

“A big modern 'Spoons by Temple Meads station. Fairly busy when we visited but service was quick and helpful enough. Not particularly interesting on the beer range but like any of them, always a safe bet to get something cheap and potentially tickable on cask.“

“Basically one smallish long room at the front of the brewery. It's pretty basic and minimal but offers a decent selection of their beers on tap. Dead quiet when we visited a little after opening time until a big brewery tour crowd appeared out of what appeared to be the toilets! The guys working there were super-efficient through and got through serving the crowd in no time at all. Definitely worth a visit.“

“Barn-like Wetherspoons close to Temple Meads station, with poor acoustics and an average beer range. Not my favourite JDW by a long way. Can get very busy.“

“Department store with moderately sized beer section. Lots of middle of the road beers but some Bristol Beer Factory stuff at good prices and a good selection from Sam Smith. Worth a look for the BBF stuff.“

“One room metallic bar, afront the brewery building. Great selection of Moor beers on tap, plus loads of their cans. No surprises there I suppose! Prices were really good I thought. Well worth a visit, especially when combined with the Barley Mow.“

“Great pub, which was abt a 15 min walk from the Megabus drop off, though I could have picked a more direct route. Perfect for a sunny day, with seats in front and behind. Loads of beer choices on cask and keg, with plenty of tempting Bristolian choices. Not far from Moor Tap too.“

“Theatre bar just out from the centre in Bristol. On two levels, open area downstairs with bar and mainstage, then stairs to a balcony level plus some outside terrace space. Visited for Cider Salon 2018. Looks to usually have up to 5 cask ales on handpull.“

“Visited here during the East Bristol Brewery Trail (6th May 2018). A space located in a large warehouse on an industrial estate. Appeared to be some comfy seating in there but the place was packed with people, with most choosing to sit/stand outside enjoying the weather. A selection of 7 or 8 of their own beers on tap, with bottles available for takeaway too. Staff were super friendly and knowledgeable, recommended to me a specific beer they thought I'd like (which I did). Nice place and very close to Moor.“

“Visited during the East Bristol Brewery Trail (6th May 2018). Nice modern taproom on the side of the brewery with both indoor and outdoor seating and tables. Many of Moor's beers on tap, I think around 10, with plenty of cans in the fridges to take away, soft drinks also available. Space for food trucks outside which I understand are a regular feature. The place was packed with people for this event, staff were really friendly, great atmosphere. Definitely a place I'd be happy to visit again.“

“Visited here during the East Bristol Brewery Trail (6th May 2018). Located on an industrial estate it has a small indoor bar with tables and chairs in the outside space (not sure if always there or just for this event). It was extremely crowded due to this event being on. Beers served were all their own, there was also a decent selection of their recent canned releases available to buy. Staff were friendly and quick to serve despite the unusually large number of people there.“

“This tap now opens on Friday evenings and Saturdays during the warmer months of the year. A short walk from the Moor Tap and Barley Mow, and close to the Bristol-Bath railway path. A friendly plAce offering several beers served in good condition. Worth seeking out.“

“This is a large, open theatre bar in the Old Market part of town, which seems to be popular with the LBGT community. There are cafe's and small artisan shops around but this appears to be the best bet for beer just in this area. It is light and open due to a rather magnificent skylight. It is a theatre with a stage in the bar then an open kitchen. There is a bakery next door which seems to be part of the same place. Too late to do anything with I noticed a lovely roof terrace, which I will definitely give a try next time. 5 Hand pumps on show, all used. Worth a look.“

“Quite a large, brand new Wetherspoons close to Temple Meads Station and therefore a really good place for meeting up with visitors. Clean and efficiently run on our visit, obviously very popular but still reasonably quick on service. A good place to start or finish your day in Brizzle.“

“Traditional pub with excellent beer to the east of Temple Meads train station. While the Barley Mow is operated by Bristol Beer Factory, there is plenty of space give to other brewers, both local (Lost & Grounded, Left Handed Giant, Wiper & True, Moor) and farther afield (Siren, Redchurch). There's about 8 cask and 10 keg, and the bottle list is worth a look as well (among the more ubiquitous beers lie some weird and wonderful discoveries). It's not really close to anything, but it's a 5-minute walk from the Moor Brewery Tap so makes a tidy little mini pub crawl. Worth seeking out.“

“Comprehensive tap for the excellent Moor Brewery. It's a bit loud and uncomfortable, but of course you're here for the beer with the atmosphere coming second. The best of the Moor lineup is here along with some rarer beers in keg and can/bottle. Most of the offerings are lower ABV, although you have the chance to stock up on various vintages of Fusion.“

“A cozy little pub walking distance from Castle Park. Friendly bartender and a nice selection of beers. The food looked wonderful, but alas, at 4pm on a Sunday afternoon, the kitchen was closed and we were forced down the street for dinner. There is both indoor and outdoor seating. Worth a visit.“

“Modern rectangular taproom tacked on to the side of the brewery. Around 10 keg plus 2 cask beers on offer most times. Occasional guest beers but mostly the brewery’s own fare which is excellent. There are benches to sit outside when the weather is decent. Regular food pop ups are hosted at the taproom. Definitely worth a visit“

“Small indoor bar with some outdoor seeting... Sadly pishing down when we were here. Usually 5-6 of they’re own keg(but 9taps available) with just couple of bottles... But 3 were new for me. Friendly welcome... VERY KID friendly with outdoor games and chalks for mucking around on the concrete with... Brewery going in next door...“

3.1 PAINTWORKS, BATH ROAD
“Looks like a lightly converted workshop, probably because it is. Serves the Paintworks new-small-industries estate, which is full of creatives. Down a slip road off Bath Road and only 10 minutes’ walk from Temple Meads station, so an easy evening venue. Very new Bristol. Three ales on cask, a dozen decent imports and as many UK craft beers. Only Incredible from Bristol currently. Excellent coffee and interesting if someone intrusive music. Food has got awards.“

“Small pub located outside typical pub crawlers route, used mostly by locals. Friday evenings packed with employees from nearby offices. Only 5 minutes walk from Temple Meads station, 3 minutes walk from Moor brewery. Also Left Handed Giant and Good Chemistery breweries are in the area. Nice selection of beers: traditional ales, modern IPA’s, porters, stouts, ciders: 10 taps + 8 pumps. Special events bring very interesting beers e.g. bocks, weizenbocks, schwartzbiers during German week in September/October. Also there is a nice selection of bottled beers from UK, USA, Germany and Belgium. Food is available and it’s amazing. Staff is very friendly and always happy to help and advise. There is a little patio and a few tables in the front of the pub. Wifi available. Almost perfect, except a bit untidy gents loo :(“

“A traditional-modern, medium sized pub with dark wooden interiors being the main outlet for Bristol Beer Factory. The beer menu is listed on a blackboard in front of the bar, and contains eight cask ales and ten on keg in addition to a large bottled menu including Lervig beers. Sandwich options, I had a tasty one with Goat Cheese. Polite service. Reggae music in the back at our stay. Close to Moor Tap Room and not more than ten minutes walk from Temple Meads train station. (Visited with Finn 29.04.2017).“

“Corner building close to a busy traffic road. The building contains the brewery and a modern, airy, oval tap room and a beer garden with barbecue options. Good selection of their own beers on cans, bottles and keg. Some of their older fusion brews can be bought here. Friendly service. Very popular early on a Saturday afternoon. The Clash punkrock music during our stay was very, very satisfying and made us drink even moor beers. (Visited with Finn, East Bristol Brewery Trail 29.04.2017).“

“Eight of their own beers on draught when we visited the brewery early on a Saturday during the East Bristol Brewery trail. The warehouse place is located in an industrial area about 10 minutes walk from the railway station and close to other beer destinations like Moor and Barley Mow. A friendly and welcome large warehouse with the brewery plant to the rear and some retro armchairs and sofas spread over the stone floor in front of the tap bar. Rock attitude to the music with modern Brit rock. Informative and friendly service. Go to their twitter place for news about upcoming events (Visited with Finn 29.04.2017).“

“Very basic (you’re virtually drinking in a portacabin), The beer is the only thing to come here, so fortunately that is good. A pity it doesn’t have a bit more available (well a cask of Old Freddy in November would have been nice).“

“Visited the 21st August 2016 - nice pub on a peaceful area between train station and Moor Brewery. Good beer selection especially on bottle with some treasure. Staff is friendly and ambiance is pretty nice. Good value place. Food looks nice, I didn’t try it. Highly recommended. There is a small patio inside.“

“Visited the 20th August 2016 - Nice taproom and brewery near to Bristol train station (10 min by foot). Nice and clear taproom with selection of 8 beers on tap. Staff is really friendly and helpful. Good service and good selection. Price is ok for beer at the taproom. For £12 there is brewery tour with 3 1/3 beers. Good value. Highly recommended. Good visit tour and good beer. It will be a perfect Saturday for you.“

“Smallish bar, with a pleasant patio, which has been created within the building which hosts the kit used to brew LHG experimental brews and its related beer distribution business. This is sited on a business park which is close to both the Moor Tap and Barley Mow (note a fence prevents it being accessed directly from Lawrence Hill roundabout). Staff are friendly and knowledgeable and the beers served on tap were in good condition if charged at Small Bar prices. Worth a look.“

“The pub is just 10 minutes walk from the centre of Bristol and not far from the Moor Brewery Tap. Absolutely packed on a Friday afternoon, lots of office workers enjoying an extended lunch break. The food was excellent and the beer choice pretty decent. A cracking boozer and well worth the walk.“

“Visited in April ’16 with Sandra, gillhalfpint and SamVimes21. It took me 30 minutes to walk from Baltic Wharf Caravan Club site, the others caught the 506 bus which picked up at the site and dropped off right outside the Brewery Tap, incredible! It is on the edge of an industrial estate but not far from The Barley Mow, which makes a good combination. There is a single front bar to the building but with enough space for quite a few visitors. The beers are in order of strength from the left. There is a large but friendly dog on the loose. Certainly worth a visit.“

“Visited on the 24th October 2015. Great brewery tap-room with lots of Moor on tap. All keg. Bottles and cans to take-out. You could order thirds, halves etc. The environment was friendly and a nice mixture of locals and brewery staff were there. The music is good, lively bar music and I enjoyed the range of music played. A great atmosphere and a great way to spend a few hours in Bristol before hitting Small Bar. There is food options, street food outside but I didn’t eat so I can’t really review that. “
