A Dawkins pub in a Georgian part of Clifton village, not far from the famous suspension bridge. Dawkins real ales are supplemented by two or three others. A range of Belgian bottles includes Duchesse de Bourgogne and an oude gueuze. Good pro-chatting atmosphere. attracting all ages and types. There is an overflow and events room upstairs at walkway level. Getting foodier.

We visited here on Saturday 3rd January 2015. As has already been mentioned this pub sits close by the Clifton Suspension Bridge, we walked past the pub to walk across the magnificent bridge which on a day of continual misty rain saw the bridge earily shrouded in low cloud and mist. We walked back down to the pub marvelling at the stunning victorian houses all about, btw Clifton is mega posh. The pub however despite being amongst this opulence is thankfully a little more grounded. A cosy place that would have been more atmospheric were it not for the fact that there were just the two of us in here. Beer choice was a little limited, but there was a good choice of bottled beers that I hadn’t noticed until after I had ordered. I had a Dawkins Bristol bitter but was a little disappointed with it, condition wise it was fine, it just tasted a little boring. The pub is accessed at the lower street level and is a small bar with just a few tables and chairs. H

Pub close to the Clifton Suspension Bridge, split over two levels with the bar being in the lower one. Decent selection of real ales, with Dawkins Brassknocker and Green Barrel being permanent features and seven well chosen guests from micro brewers, with Moor and Brewdog particularly prominent. Cider is from Broadoak and there are some Belgian beers available too, including something on tap and the occasional unusual bottle such as Duivels Bier Donker. Food is tasty and good value, especially the Pie Minister pies. Regular beer and cider festivals offer a decent selection of quality drinks. Part of the Dawkins group of pubs.
