If you're looking for the best thing to come out of Bristol, you've got to come here and indulge in the dirty dirty fries. Hard to look anywhere else in Bristol for burgers when they're so good here.

There's not really a whole lot to say about this place. Food: It has a decent selection of very good burgers (I've tried a few and they're all delicious). Drink: It's a pub first and foremost so you have a decent selection of booze, and...More

There is no wheelchair accessibility. But I would suggest phoning and seeing if they have a ramp. The staff are very friendly.
