Business Overview

Cocktail Bar & Dining Room at The Rummer Hotel. We are an independent local business with a passion for quality. Winner Best Spirits Pub 2013

The Rummer Hotel occupies a listed building in Bristol's Old City Quarter. We are an independent bar and restaurant with a passion for quality. Our kitchen produces some of the best food to be found in central Bristol, if the critics are to be believed, and our bar holds over 400 premium spirits from around the globe. It’s the largest collection in the region.

An inn has stood on this site from the 1200s, and after being rebuit in 1742, has played host to many historic events, including being the destination of the first stagecoach from London.

After being neglected for years, The Rummer Hotel was refurbished in 2005 and now boasts a classic stylish interior. The main entrance has been restored to All Saints Lane, and the Cellars converted back to an intimate venue, and private dining room.

We are open every day, with our Head Chef, Greg McHugh, serving modern British food on his lunch and evening menus. Our bar is open until midnight during the week and 1am on the weekends.

We booked for a meal last weekend, and we now have a new favorite place in Bristol. The cellar restaurant was low lit and intimate, the decor simple and tasteful, with lit up wine racks at one end. Starters were Ox Tongue & Cheek, which was amazing, and Mushroom Pate on Crumpets. The tongue was breaded and perfectly cooked, while the crumpets were enjoyed immensely by my partner. For mains I went for the shin of veal with vanilla, which was an interesting combination which I think worked well, but I am still thinking about. For dessert we went for the Parsnip & White Chocolate Roulade, and the Rhubarb Trifle. Both brilliant and gave us a nice surprise at the end of the meal.
In all, this has become my new favorite eatery in Bristol, and I love they way that they are using unusual and interesting flavour combinations. A must visit for anyone who is not afraid to experiment a little

what a selection!
I dropped into the Rummer some weeks ago, mainly out of curiosity, as I had heard that this is the location of the oldest inn in Bristol. The old Inn has gone (except for the foundations, perhaps) but the Rummer Hotel claims to be the oldest licensed premises in Bristol.
It is located just off busy Corn Street, close to the Corn Exchange and Corn Street Market. In its current guise, the Rummer is a smart, slightly understated eating and drinking venue. The interior is a nice blend of ancient, timer beams and stone flooring, and a modern, extremely well-stocked bar, comfortable seating and a homely atmosphere.
When I visited, at lunch time, the Rummer was a busy, yet spacious, pleasant place where it was easy to feel comfortable. It is famous for its huge (seriously large) selection of spirits. The choice of vodkas is mind boggling and the different rums available just go to show how varied the luxury spirits market has become in recent years. Similarly, the Rummer's range of whiskies (and whiskeys) is legendary, from exclusive blends, to single malts, to Bourbons and even an Australian blend.
For some reason, I drank a bottle of one of the best, dark, West Country beers I have ever come across. I can't remember its name (it had a dark purple label), nor why I ordered it, but it was an absolute beauty. Served in a frozen glass from the freezer, the cold, chocolate-coloured ale was a treat on a warm Saturday.

The Rummer
This has to be one of the best bars in Bristol. It has such a chilled out vibe, especially in winter when the open fire is blazing. The cocktails are amazing and the wine and spirit selection is really impressive. Drinks are reasonably priced considering this is such a nice bar. It often gets busy on the weekend so if you are planning on visiting with a group of friends it is well worth getting on the guest list. It is hard to find a sophisticated venue in Bristol that is not pretentious but The Rummer seems to have hit a good balance. Although I haven't eaten here, I hear that the food is also excellent.

Best Bar In Bristol
I've been going to The Rummer Hotel on and off for the last year, and every time it gets even better. They have hundreds of spirits packing the backbar, and knowledgeable staff who seem to know what everything is and where it is. Recently they started doing food. Breakfast, lunch and evening tapas. I went in for luinch after reading great reviews and was not disappointed.
In all, a high quality establishment, with a very relaxed atmosphere. (I was asked to keep my voice down by the manager as I was disturbing other guests... fair enough.. I was shouting a bit) A complete antidate to the bland commercialism of Corn Street. Highly recommended, but dress smart, and be well behaved.
