The Old Bookshop was recently crowned Bristol's Best Bar at theĀ Bristol Life Awards!


Our covered garden has a woodburner, so it's very cosy.


PRIVATE HIRE: People often ask whether they can arrange a private function here. We generally don't let out the place on Friday or Saturday nights. However, at other times of the week we can sometimes allocate space for a private event. It very much depends on the date/time/number of people. Email us at
