I visited the Flyer with some friends whilst visiting Bristol in May 2017. We were only getting drinks but you can still gauge a good idea how good a pub is, it was slightly rowdy, but perfectly friendly. Quite reasonably priced too. Recommended.

I recently went to the flyer. I ate the sausage and mash, this was a really nice dish that I would have again. My friend didn't like her chicken katsu although that may be down to personal tastes rather than the quality. The issue I...More

Stopped by as had a m&b gift card to get rid of. Ordered risotto, a salad, few sides. Couple of good pints of IPA. Decent prices and friendly staff. Good sized beer garden at rear and seats out front. Will return for sure!

Description
Up there with the best pubs in Bristol.The Bristol Flyer, as it's traditionally known, is a friendly pub on the Gloucester Road serving seriously good pub food and an array of speciality drinks more dizzying than our classic trompe d'oeil floor. Head for one of our cosy, relaxing sofas and you'll soon recover. As a venue we're versatile (like a potato but better) and well kitted out for both intimate dinners and group gatherings.
