Bristol is a city that really comes to life in the summer months and enjoying a cold drink outdoors on a sunny day is one of the great pleasures that come with living here. Whatever this summer brings, we're looking forward to sunny days at these Bristol pubs with the best beer gardens and outdoor spaces.
Beese's Riverside Bar and Garden
Beese’s riverside bar is hidden Bristol gem, located in a secluded spot along the banks of the River Avon. It's a favourite amongst locals and visitors alike. Taking a ferry to get there really adds to the magic and, on Fridays, there's live music too.
King Street Brew House & The Apple
The King Street Brew House is a buzzing city centre pub with its very own micro-brewery on site. They offer a range of cask and keg beers with new ones to try throughout the year. They also have guest brews from other UK and US breweries. Cider fans should swing around the corner to The Apple, where you can enjoy your favourite tipple aboard an historic Dutch barge.
The White Lion
If a view of the iconic Clifton Suspension Bridge is what you are after, then The White Lion is the place for you. Its large terrace is a real suntrap and it has one of the best views in Bristol across the Avon Gorge. Be warned, it's a favourite with the selfie crowd at weekends, so visit early on a weekday evening for a more relaxed vibe.
Stokes Croft Beer Garden
Stokes Croft Beer Garden offers a unique outdoor space in the heart of Bristol and plenty of food and drink options. This is a lively place, especially on the weekend!
Perched high above the city, ZERODEGREES offers craft beers and pizzas in a modern microbrewery, with terraces overlooking rooftops. It has a relaxed, friendly vibe and is large enough for big groups, when they're allowed.
The Spotted Cow
Known in Bristol for one of the best Sunday Roasts around, The Spotted Cow on North Street is a favourite for those living south of the river. With a fantastic outdoor garden and community feel, it's a great place to spend a lazy Sunday.
