Im the same. It needs a decent beer place. Wild beer is crap. Sat outside the Corks unit but obviously tiny.
The Athenian is really good for wraps.

wild beer is so awful, went once after food at bertha's. proper "trendy" colour by numbers decor, except it looks 2 years out of date. so unimaginative and shit. I love pretentious beer and they have plenty of that, but nothing else. not what I look for in a decent boozer tbh

Wapping Wharf smacks of try-hards attempting to create some sort of "trendy" East London "vibe" - do not rate at all.
just seen swede's comment above saying a similar thing!

That’s been Bristol’s problem for at least the past 6-7 years, unfortunately. There’s little left of what made Bristol, Bristol anymore.
Everything is safe, paint-by-numbers, check the bottom line, cliche social media drivel (I’m getting old).
Only person still doing anything properly is Dave Smeaton, but even he’s had enough. It’s a shame.

Smeaton owns/co-owns a load of pubs^

Sorry had to google his name. The crack magazine one at bottom of christmas steps, always good for a proper cider.

Nothings happening, he’s just not opening anymore. He was going to convert the old TSB bank on Church Rd (st George), but isn’t anymore and did want to convert the Bush in Totterdown but it ended up being a daycare centre.

Prolly get dissed for visiting something that's not on the FUK approved playlist but working central every Friday for the next 5 weeks; popped into 'Cupp' on Philadelphia Street(?) Friday lunchtime - Beef Noodle Soup was on point.

I do agree though, but am 100% aware it is people like me (student at bristol since 2010) that drives this change and gentrification
