Closed Bank Holiday Mondays

Tucked away from the hustle & bustle of the city centre, The Bank Tavern has stood since the 1800’s. Surviving an alarming number of riots, two world wars, Bristol City Council town planners and Thatcher.

An independent free house, it prides itself on an award winning ales and ciders, excellent food and not taking itself too seriously.

Recently crowned the home of Bristol's best Sunday Lunch at the Bristol Good Food Awards 2018!

With music on throughout the week and an ever rotating selection of ales & ciders its always worth a visit. Check out our Kitchen and Listings pages!
