The Christmas Steps Pub, Bristol, Somerset
The Christmas Steps Pub stands at the bottom of the cobbled Christmas Steps lane in Bristol’s Arts Quarter, one of the coolest parts of the city to hang out in. What’s nice is that it’s old school and it’s cosy – a lot of pubs haven’t held on to that ethos these days, but this place has. Inside is a tasteful mix of heritage colours, exposed stone and brick walls, tiled floors, rustic benches, old pine tables and for those colder days, a wood burner kicks out its heat and warms your toes.
What’s good is that you feel welcome even if you just pop in for a drink and if you do, try a craft beer or ale from a local brewery because it seems only appropriate. If you go for eats you won’t be disappointed because the Christmas Steps gets excellent reviews from locals and visitors. Food is all made using fresh local ingredients and none of it is fast or frozen; stop by for lunch and you could have a 30 day aged Hereford beef burger with caramelised onion and chips, Mac & Cheese with crispy onions and pickled shallots, or a toasted sandwich. If it’s not blowing a hoolie sit outside and watch the world go by, relaxed city style.
