It wasn't long ago that this little corner shop was stuffed full of second-hand publications and shelves of Dickens. Today, The Old Bookshop has managed to retain its stylishly dated quirks from years past, while becoming one of Bristol's top food ventures.
Everything here is ramped up to the nines, from the eclectic hodgepodge of antique musical instruments and disconcerting taxidermy, to the menu of modern small plates, the seductive bar, and the mixed bag of live music. And despite the razzle-dazzle, it's not all show here. Having been crowned Bristol's Best Bar at the Bristol Life Awards 2017 - these guys are standing their ground at the forefront of Bristol's buzzing bar scene.
Awesome! Perfect hybrid between bar/pub/taxidermist. Decent beer.
Cute little pub with unique atmosphere and vintage feel. Lots of found items decorate the dark walls. Local beers on tap and cocktail bar open on certain evenings. Friendly staff and fantastic service. Great menu options for light bites and mains - with plenty of choice for vegans.
Lovely little place with good beers and atmosphere
Lovely venue, really nice people who work there and just a great place to go for a drink!
Loved the beer garden and will be returning for Sunday roast and more drinks over the bank holiday
Lovely hidden gem with lots of choice of layers, ales and ciders. Great atmosphere as well!
