Pub of the week: The Christmas Steps

Our pub of the week is one of Bristol’s oldest, with an excellent rotation of locally brewed beers and ales.

Tucked into the heart of Bristol’s vibrant arts quarter, The Christmas Steps is a tantalisingly cosy spot for enjoying a pint of our brand spanking new APA, Pony Truck.

Following its recent restoration, this 300-year-old city pub oozes atmosphere and unspoiled, informal historic charm. The food menu is reassuringly simple and the Sunday lunches come highly recommended, and include popular vegetarian and vegan versions.

If you’re in Bristol this weekend, we say The Christmas Steps is a must – for gathering with friends, or sloping off for a quiet one. It’s a magical spot for watching the world go by, whatever the time of year.

Phew, where has the time gone? We’ve been brewing for almost 15 years.

We’ll never produce factory style beer. Our creative brewers use hop flavours to their full, forever artful in the quite wondrous production of naturally flavoursome beer.

Our roots are firmly in the West Country, where we continue to be inspired by the engineering triumphs of the late great Isambard Kingdom Brunel.
