The Lansdown, Clifton Village, Bristol, Somerset
The Lansdown is a former coaching inn (there are a few of them in these parts) on the edge of Clifton Village, just 5 minutes from Bristol city centre. It’s family owned and very much a traditional pub, the kind of place where you can sit and enjoy a decent pint or a glass of wine and unpretentious but very tasty home cooked food. Everyone is made to feel welcome and the atmosphere is very chipper.
The beer garden is a popular spot both in the summer when the sun is beating down and in the winter when it’s covered with a marquee and heated; they show all the big matches out there on a whopper of a screen, and it’s the scene of a very jolly annual Real Ale Festival, which is quite an event. Food is pub fare – Cod, chips and mushy peas, Wild boar sausages wrapped in bacon with mash, Ham, egg and chips, burgers and frittatas.
