The closed and boarded up pubs in Bristol we sadly miss and would love to have a pint in again

Bristol would not be the same without its pubs, and it’s always sad to see them closed, boarded up and then converted into housing.

The Downend Tavern in Fishponds recently reopened after almost four years (hurrah), and it’s got us thinking about some other pubs in the city we would love to see back up and running.   

For some pubs, there are campaigns to restore them, but for others it is too late and they become housing or are knocked down altogether.   

Have a look through our list of closed, abandoned and boarded up pubs we’d love to have a pint in again one day soon. Have we missed any?
