The weather is still more like winter rather than spring so what better way to spend these wet and miserable evenings than a trip to a cosy pub.
Here are eight of the smallest pubs in Bristol. Most of them are only a single room with a bar, making them perfect for a quiet pint and a chat.
And if you think we’ve missed any pocket-size pubs, do let us know by emailing [email protected] and we’ll add them to our list.
1. The Drapers Arms, 447 Gloucester Road
Proudly calling itself Bristol’s first micropub, The Drapers Arms occupies a single room in a converted shop. It sells a vast range of real ales straight from the cask, mostly from breweries in Bristol, Gloucestershire, Somerset and Wiltshire.
2. The Kings Head, 60 Victoria Street, Redcliffe
The Kings Head reopened earlier this year after a lengthy closure. Now run by the team behind Bristol’s Good Chemistry brewery, this cosy, narrow pub has plenty of original Victorian features and a unique ‘tramcar’ bar at the back
3. Snuffy Jack’s Ale House, 800 Fishponds Road
A former winner of CAMRA Bristol & District’s Pub of the Year, Snuffy Jack’s is a one-room micropub serving up to six real ales straight from the cask, three keg lines and a rotation of traditional ciders.
4. Little Grosvenor, 3 Coronation Road, Southville
Close to Bedminster Bridge and opposite the river, the appropriately named Little Grosvenor is one of the last ‘proper’ pubs in Bristol. Cash only and serving just bottles and cans of beer, lager and cider, it’s packed with locals and Bristol City fans from early morning onwards.
