About the Pub

This is a small but busy ‘Spoons opened in Spring 2012 enlarged from the “Glasshouse” young persons pub that had been closed for some time. There are often rarer styles of real ale available as well as boxes of still cider and perry. To the left as you enter is the bar area with a hidden TV screen for special events, stairs to upstairs toilets and doors to the outside patio. To the right is a toilet for the disabled who have step free access throughout, the main eating area partly in a “garden room” extension, a settee lounging area and a real fire. Quiz Monday evenings. No dogs except guide dogs are allowed anywhere on the pub property.

The Glass Maker derives it’s name from Nailsea’s Glassworks that operated from the late 18th until the late 19th century utilizing coal from the many mines in the area. Mostly window and bottle glass was made, but the very collectable Nailsea Blue Glass was made by it’s workers in their own time. There are tributes to the glassworks in the pub and in the patio area, and to Mizzymead Farm that closed to provide land for the New Town of Nailsea in the 1960’s. There is also a tribute to Adge Cutler who worked at the Coates Cider Works and formed the Wurzels both in the town. The pub is situated off Crown Glass Place part of a 1970’s Shopping Precinct.
