On the site of the old Berkeley Castle pub, the Pipe and Slippers has been serving the Stokes Croft area – and further afield – since 2004. Its impact on the community was immediate and it picked up a Theme Bar of the Year award within 12 months of opening – testament to its popularity with locals and visitors alike.

With high ceilings, dark wood finishings and sympathetic warm lighting, there’s a down-to-earth, homely feel, despite its status as the one of the area’s premier destination late bars, serving a mouthwatering array of premium and super-premium beers, ciders and spirits. A 1 am licence Thursday to Sunday and a weekend roster of the very best Bristol DJs further cement its reputation as a north-of-the-river institution.
