Why we love it

Found in The Good Beer Guide and rightly so, The Miner's Arms holds a solid place in our warm hearts. Discover it deep in the centre of St Werberghs, out towards the Ashley Vale Allotments. It's one of the few pubs in Bristol that transports you beyond the city to the nostalgic, rural public house.

It's a great space, made up of several large rooms with huge tables, ideal for no-fuss family gatherings or afternoon pints with friends. The bar has all the traditional ales, a great Guinness, and a range of West Country brews from Dawkins. Chilled hip-hop and reggae are the perfect backing track to conversation - the lack of signal prevents anyone fiddling on their phones. Have a go on the Street Fighter 2 arcade game, which has probably held residence here for decades. There's also a free-to-use pool table, and extra-long benches to gather across. Come winter, the cracking smoking area out back will keep you hemmed in safely from the cold between four wooden walls. Roll on summer, and the mound out front is filled with people basking in sunshine sipping on lukewarm pints.
