The Dark Horse

Bristol Pub


The Dark Horse has a rustic ‘country pub in town’ feel, situated on the upper third of Redfield’s Church Road and the sister pub of CAMRA Somerset Cider Pub of The Year 2013 The Plough Inn, Taunton.

We have a passion for real ale gravity fed from firkin casks on classic stillage behind our bar, this is backed with an extensive collection of traditional local farmhouse cider and a rotating line of local craft beer.

Food we keep simple, we are a boozer after all, Traditional (Pieminister) pie and mash, accompanied by our famous secret recipe onion gravy and minted mushies and of course locally sourced and free range Sunday roasts, every Sunday until late (4pm). Or come in and graze on our range of homemade and locally sourced British tapas bar snacks.

Dog friendly (and next to St Georges park), chatty knowledgeable happy staff, open mic performances, a roaring open fire, bashed up leather furniture, upright piano, weekly quiz nights, weekend DJ’s, event space for hire, Bierkeller tables, a secret dancefloor with huge glitter ball available to hire, put on nights etc.
