First time after lockdown

Lunch today was superb. We were nervous as this was first pub visit after lockdown. So organised. We felt very safe but still totally relaxed. Staff attentive but careful. Very clear signage and beautiful surroundings. Obviously run by someone proud of their pub. Will be back again soon. Thank you.

Blew any anxiety out of the window

From the moment we arrived, any anxiety about COVID-19 and being back in a pub again was blown away with a quick bite to eat and a couple of pints at the Gloucester Old Spot. From the moment the young lady met us at the door and explained how everything was working, it was obvious they have worked hard to ensure a slick and safe service. We hope this is the norm everywhere if not now but soon. I highly recommend the lentil burger and my friend said the Cajun Chicken burger was tasty too. 10/10 for this visit, would be 11 if it worked like that due to being called Kitten by the waitress . We look forward to seeing them all again soon.

Really Rather Perfect

We arrived to a perfectly sunny spot… with a lovely, flat, neat garden. There was a great little fort for young ones and our little girl was quick to make friends. Menu was exactly what we wanted…. yummy burgers and sarnies, scrummy fries and summer salads…. plus my favourite wine on the menu too; picpoul de pinet… We stayed for hours and then strolled to the large park nearby… really rather perfect.

My partner and I came here for lunch today (Tuesday 28th), we arrived just after 3pm when the kitchen stops serving their main menu and switch to sandwiches. However my boyfriend really wanted fish and chips and they were so generous and allowed us to have food from the main menu which we really appreciated! The food was amazing, I had spanakopita and it was honestly the best I’ve ever had, fish and chips were great too. You can tell that everything is homemade and made with care. On top of this, sitting in the sunshine in the quiet beer garden, cold drink in hand made for a lovely afternoon. Thank you everyone we will definitely be back!

Great visit for food and drinks with family and friends

We stopped off here after a Spring event on horfield common as its only a quick walk away. It is a real family friendly pub with a great garden for kids young and older and welcoming for our dog too. It was busy but we got a table. The beers and gin and tonics were great, and our food was superb. The staff here are really welcoming and friendly. 5 stars from us, we cant wait for our next visit.

Birthday with family

We decided to have my birthday meal here and as there were six young children included in the party it was a good choice, as it has a rear garden which is child friendly. It has a good choice of beers and a pretty good food menu. As it was a large party we were asked to pre order our food which worked well and was delivered to our table within a couple of minutes of the ordered time.

A regular haunt when in Bristol

This is our friends regular haunt and I can understand why. Very friendly Owner who is hands on and enthusiastic about making her business a success. Good selection of beers, great food and a child friendly beer garden with activities and AstroTurf. I can imagine it can get rowdy with kids on occasion, however there are quieter seats inside nearer the bar where a pint and kindle can be enjoyed relatively unscathed. They are now open for breakfast which looked interesting – maybe next time!
