If you’re already a regular you’ll know why the Bristol is the sort of place that has the right feel.
It’s not too small and it’s not too big. It’s not too dark and it’s not too bright. The food is great but the prices aren’t.
And you can hear yourself think... except perhaps when a really good live band is playing, or the ‘Canes are dicking the Blues, or the day/nighter is down to the last over, or just because the place is packed on a normal Friday night (well, maybe it can get a bit noisy).
Anyway, instead of cramming into some boring Courtenay Place cocktail cupboard come on in to the Bristol and have a damn good time in a damn good bar in a damn good part of town.
