We also have a good selection of craft ales on keg including Laguanitas and Purity plus Heineken, Amstel, and Birra Moretti. Adding to this there is a great choice of cider including Orchard Pig and Thatchers and North Street Cider plus we have always have a traditional cloudy cider on handpull.

The wine list is sourced from local importers and is strictly European with a lot of the wines coming from small French vineyards which means you will find wines not seen in many bars and restaurants.

  • Well it's great to get back in the Spotted Cow with their gorgeous Sunday lunch. The pork belly was stunning and the gravy was to die for! Great food, super friendly service and felt very comfortable in these strange times.

  • Great for social drinks. Sat indoors on a Saturday evening which was set up well for social distancing. There was a good drinks selection, and food quality. Efficient and friendly staff and service.

  • The Spotted Cow was one of the first pubs in Bristol to place an emphasis on locally sourced and organic produce... North Street has come a long way over the years and The Spotted Cow has had a hand to play in its resurgence.

  • Booked for a Saturday place was very busy but service was quick & efficient. The food was local and homemade we were very impressed with the kitchen making a lot of the starters from scratch (Scotch eggs etc). The service at the table was excellent and we were able to order bar drinks at the table. it gets a little noisy but there is certainly a great hubbub. I understand Sunday lunch is very popular

  • The Spotted Cow has been one such haunt of mine, and it has been for most of the seven years I’ve lived in Bristol. It’s remained a constant on ever-evolving North Street, seeing neighbouring businesses come and go, and the food and drink offering flourish. It’s actually been there, in the same guise and ownership, for over a decade. Come the summer, the large garden will come into its own, too – locals flock here at the first sign of sun to work on those vitamin D levels. A proper crowd-pleaser.

  • This spacious downtown gastropub oozes unpretentious sophistication, from the candle-lit minimalism of the decor to the chilled Sunday jazz DJ sets. Food is also a big deal here. You'll find classic pub grub brilliantly reinvented with locally sourced and organic ingredients whenever possible.
