About the Pub

A shrine to dark beer and great rock/heavy metal music in which posters, guitars and many pump clips adorn the walls. Triangular in shape due to its corner plot and just a few yards up the hill from the Colston Hall, it has handpumps dispensing anything up to six rapidly changing and generally never to be seen again brews, many dark and often strong. Live bands sometimes play upstairs and there are 'MetAle' beer festivals in March and September. There are good discounts on draught or bottled beers at certain times Monday to Thursday. The pub may open earlier on Sundays and may be available for private hire before 4pm weekdays. Children and dogs are admitted at the licensee's discretion.
