About the Pub

A large open-plan pub adjoining the Victorian Clifton Arcade in the heart of lively Clifton Village. The bar has eight hand pumps, dispensing up to six cask beers (average four) and a real cider or two, and twelve keg fonts. These are not labelled, rather boards along the side wall and by the bar list the beers and ciders. Prices for third, half and two-thirds are displayed, however you can still ask for and get a pint. Upstairs is a games room with shuffle board, pool, darts, etc. The pavement area out front (the "garden") has some fixed tables and seating. The pub's frontage includes large tri-fold doors that open out in summer. Run as a free house by the people who have the Famous Royal Navy Volunteer in King Street in central Bristol. NB: Closed Mondays and Tuesdays in January.
