Late Summer Fun: Pub Walk Around BS3

Late Summer Fun: Pub Walk Around BS3

Friends or family in town? Going for a walk around the neighborhood? Looking for something fun to do on a beautiful late summer day?

We've got you: this week we're tackling a fun little Pub Walk around BS3.

We'll assume that you're planning your starting location in the general area of our Ashton club - maybe because you've come in for a workout, a killer group fitness class, or just come along to say hi to our friendly reception team.

ALSO a quick general disclaimer, we are outlining our favourite watering holes around the BS3 area... this DOES NOT mean you need to stop at every single one of them; there are quite a few listed (insert concerned emoji). Now, grab a friend, brother, mother, really whomever you please, and get to walking!

  1. From our Ashton club, you could easily start your tour at Bristol Beer Factory's Tap Room. I know, our besties next door... how predictable are we, right?! But seriously, we love the Tap Room. It's nestled nicely at the end of North Street - the perfect place to enjoy a pint before your stroll down through Southville towards Bedminster. They've got 4 hand pulls rotating with their latest brews (brewed right onsite!), 6 keg lines, and fridges full of bottles... there's something to ry for everyone!
  2. Continue to make your way down North Street, and you'll find yourself at the Spotted Cow. Spotted Cow has a fantastic drinks selection, and claims they have "one of the best stocked back bars in Bristol, with an extensive range of whiskies, rums, and gin." In addition to a range of strong drinks, they support local breweries, with a regularly changing range of cask and craft ales. Cider lovers - fear not! They've also got a great choice of bottled ciders, as well as a traditional cloudy cider on handpull.
  3. Head a little further up the road and pay the Old Bookshop a visit. This quirkly little cafe-bar has a large selection of tapas, and may we recommend their Sunday roast!? Delicious and only £15 for a two-course meal. If pub quizzes are more your thing - check them out on Mondays for your chance to win big.
  4. If you keep going on North Street (don't worry, we'll be mixing it up shortly), you can grab a spot on North Street Standard's spacious front terrace... for a full breakfast, a nice coffee, a cheeky pint, or even an order of loaded Mac. They've got plenty of space and plenty of dining and drink options!
  5. Once you mosey off from the North Street Standard, take a right at the round-a-bout and head towards the Black Cat. We're told that this little neighborhood spot is cash-only, but they've got cheap drink prices and some rockin' karoake to make up for it.
  6. Once you've had your karoake fill, continue to make your way down West Street to The Three Lions pub, a staple for a pre-match pint. They've got friendly staff, great people, and a variety of different beers and ciders on tap. Bonus: they've got a great back patio with outdoor seating and incredible views of the City. You may even be able to sneak a peak at that famous little suspension bridge ;)
  7. Next, head down Palmyra Road towards The Luckwell. The Luckwell is a popular sports pub just a stone's throw away from the football stadium - a great place to enjoy pre- or post-match drinks with your mates. They also boast several big screen TVs, a pool table, dart board, and gamining machines. If you're feeling lucky - they've even got a free weekly draw to win free money, as well as a weekly forecast bet customers can take a gamble at to win up to £1000! In addition to all these fun and games, they stock a wide selection of lagers, ales, and ciders, as well as all of your favourite spirits and mixers.
  8. To round out the tour, we're going to go the "choose your own adventure" route. Option 1: head to the Rising Sun, a bright pub with a fun outdoor beer garden. Option 2: head to the Cooper's Arms, a traditional Bristol City supporter bar. Alternatively, if you're feeling up to it, you could always opt to check them both out... you won't be disappointed!

To make things a bit easier, we've mapped this one out for you:
