About the Pub

A Grade II listed building, until 1975 the site of old Bank of England premises and then a Bristol & West Building Society office. In 1994 it became a Fuller's Ale & Pie establishment and Fuller's did a great job sensitively refurbishing the inside: there is now an island bar, a gallery, and various murals referencing the rich history of the area. Note the ornate high ceilings and the chandeliers. There is a beer garden at the back. The lease reverted to owners McMullens in early 2019 and the pub is now directly managed by them. The menu offering now includes a gluten-free menu and a luxury pie range, plus more standard pub grub.

There are two function areas but occasionally the whole pub may be booked out so check before making a special visit.

A full review is pending; comments on the reopened pub are welcome.
