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. Its 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.

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
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.
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.
