About Us

We’re an independent family-run pub on Kellaway Avenue in North Bristol, serving delicious locally-sourced food and a wide selection of drinks from morning until night every day.

Gloucester Old Spot pigs are synonymous with the South West and renowned for producing the highest quality pork. We are also proud to have been reared in the South West and obsessed with simple food that’s done well, so the Old Spot pig seemed the perfect inspiration for us. Nestled only a short walk away from Bristol’s famously independent Gloucester Road, this was also testament to a part of the city that we’re extremely proud and fond of.

The pub has been a labour of love for us and we opened our doors in September 2014. From the sausages to the lamp fittings, everything at the Old Spot has been locally sourced. Car-boot sales in Frome, Bristol’s friendliest eBay sellers, antique shops in Bath, benches crafted in Midford, grocers in Bishop Sutton and meat from Winterbourne have all contributed to what we now call home.

We wanted to make The Old Spot a fun, enjoyable, unpretentious family-friendly pub for the local Bristol community where you could get great service, a satisfying pint, enjoy a delicious burger, share some top-notch local mezze with friends or tuck into a big breakfast in the best garden in the world. We think we’ve cracked it, and we hope you do too.
