The Pub

British Drinks Emporium
Bristol Good Food Awards Highly Commended Sunday Lunch

The pub is a great British institution that has been at the heart of communities for nearly a thousand years, and with artisan breweries and distilleries now springing up across the UK, now is an exciting time to create a pub that marries superb British products with traditional pub values.

We want to lead the charge of the great British pub revival, and be a part of the community in the Village.

At the Nettle, we have a passion for championing UK only craft beers, and have staff who share our passion for great products and friendly service.  We’ve built an enviable reputation for quality products and traditional values at our sister pub, The Famous Royal Navy Volunteer, and we’re excited to be a part of Clifton.

Whether you’re celebrating, popping in for a bite to eat, watching sport or simply looking for somewhere quiet to do the crossword, the Nettle is the perfect place.  


We’ve worked hard to create a pub that suits Clifton, a city attitude to quality, with a Village attitude to service.
