Why we love it

The Bank Tavern has arguably one of the nicest landlords in the business. Sam's infectious smile and warm greeting as you walk in through the door never gets old. In their own words, the pub is tucked away from the city center and has survived "an alarming number of riots, two world wars, Bristol City Council town planners and Thatcher". Tucked up behind The Lanes bowling alley and overlooking the beautiful Church of St John on the Wall garden, you would be forgiven for thinking you had left Bristol completely.

With live music throughout the week, some of the best pub burgers and serving The Bristol Sunday Roast Club's favourite Sunday Roast (equal only to The Green Man) you are going to leave entertained and full. The kitchen prides itself on using cuts of meat you wouldn't find in most pubs (we had our first sweetbreads here as a Sunday Roast starter) and the odd nose to tail eating events, be sure to keep a beady eye on their website.
