This is your local pub, it's a real cracker, with loads of ales and ciders on tap and a range of wines.

A good destination for a bike ride on the Bristol to Bath Cycle Path. The pub sits overlooking a weir in a beautiful spot for the evening sunshine. It does serve food but can't guarantee the quality, it's all about the location with this one.

Gloucester Road claims to be the longest (mostly) independent high street in Europe. You will find a myriad of charity shops, craft shops, cafes, bars, pubs, bakeries and pretty much anything else you can think of. The most vibrant section is further towards the centre starting from the Somerville Road junction.
