We would love you to come along, enjoy our hospitality, take a look around and share with us your feedback which we will certainly welcome.
Located in the heart of the eclectic Gloucester Road community this pub was re-launched in February 2016 after extensive refurbishment by Wickwar Wessex Pub Company. Previously named The Foresters the transformation has retained the welcoming intimacy and character of the original building whilst introducing a contemporary twist to the enhanced two floor trading area.
The Gloucester Road Ale House & Kitchen is an ale and craft beer pub with, as our name suggests, the added attraction of an enticing and diverse food offer. The atmosphere is relaxed with vintage silent films by day and candle lit tables with tasteful background music by night.
We offer real choice across our range of ales, ciders and lagers with changes on a regular basis. Alongside local Wickwar Wessex Brewery’s popular and award winning ales, such as BOB, Falling Star and Cotswold Way, there are several rotating guest ales. All of our perfectly cask conditioned ales are priced at £2.70 all day, every day!
For the cider fans, there is Cloudy Apple, Thatcher’s Gold and traditional guest offerings. We also have fantastic Gin & Cocktail menus garnished and built using fresh, locally sourced fruits which evolve reflecting the seasons & craft spirit development.
Food is important to us and we source from award winning local suppliers such as The Bread Store & T Murray’s butcher both located on The Gloucester Road. We demand fresh, local, seasonal produce where available and whilst our menu changes daily to reflect this you will generally find classics such as Sausage & Champ, handmade burgers and colourful salads. We also have an Express Lunch menu and exquisite contemporary light bites and tapas sharers. Make sure you keep Sunday's free to sample one of the best roasts in Bristol. Children are welcome too, with a special selection of meals available.
Wednesday evenings see our Fine Wine Wednesday promotion where nearly all our wines are priced at £12.95 per bottle & on Thursday’s our crafted cocktails are 2 for 1. On Sunday evenings we host our famous quiz where a £50 bar tab awaits the winning team.
Free Wi-Fi and complementary wireless printing service is available and although we are far from a sports pub we do show BT and terrestrial sports in a relaxed and comfortable environment.
As we have bars on both floors we are able to host any special events on a private hire basis and would love to welcome your party. We can cater for all events and budgets and will be happy to discuss your requirements which we are confident we can exceed. Whether it’s a leaving do, birthday or anniversary party or a mother and toddler coffee morning, please pop in for a chat.
