Serving the local community
ciders, ales and cocktails
since 2004


With a 1am licence through from Thursday to Sunday, it would be rude of us not to provide a decent soundtrack. Every week you can find some of Bristol’s finest selectors and knowledgeable music heads gracing our decks with everything from Funk & Boogie to Dub & Reggae, and then there is always the chance of you stumbling into our legendary and sporadic 2-step Sundays…



On the site of the old Berkeley Castle pub, the Pipe & Slippers has been serving the Stokes Croft area – and further afield – since 2004. It’s standing in the community was immediate and it’s only grown in popularity, reputation and notoriety with locals and visitors alike.
With high ceilings, dark wood finishing and sympathetic warm lighting, there’s a down-to-earth homely feel despite its status as one of the area’s finest late night bars. Serving an array of local and premium beers, ciders, spirits and cocktails to satisfy all tastes and whims, as well as delicious food all week and DJ’s on the weekend – you can find yourself at home at any time; whether it’s by our roaring fireplace midweek or on top of the tables on the weekend…


Focussing mainly on local brews, we put have put together and regularly update 14 drafts and more than 17 bottled beers and ciders from our favourite breweries, creating our own drinkers paradise. We regularly feature Lost & Grounded, Bristol Beer Factory, New Bristol Brewery, Arbor Ales, Bristol Cider Company and more to provide our wide-range of real ales, IPA’s, pilsners, lagers, ciders and non-alcoholic beers (on tap!)

Our ever-evolving cocktail list offers up classic and contemporary creations chosen by our staff and made from our range of premium spirits. Our home-brewed spicy margarita is a recent addition, while the Turbo Island Iced Tea remains a favourite with locals. With an extensive back bar, we can cater for most requests – and then failing that there is always our infamous Pipe Dream…


We have previously hosted amazing chefs and kitchens such as Smoke & Glaze, Chicken Shack and Gourmet Sandwich Club amongst others, but right now we are working on something a bit different and very exciting – all to be revealed very soon. Until then feel free to bring in your own food/takeaway to eat inside if you like! Rice & Things next door is a great recommendation…

Pork, beef, chicken, lamb, vegetarian and vegan all covered (as well as a mixed meat option for the big eaters); with cauliflower cheese an optional extra and a rotating dessert menu.
