Breathing new life into a familiar venue is fraught with danger, but the reinvention of live music venue The Croft as The Crofters Rights is a perfect example of how to do it properly.
The team behind the now thriving Stokes Croft bar had previous in this regard, helping to spearhead London’s craft beer revolution with the trailblazing Euston Tap. They applied the same principles to their Bristol venue – stripping back the décor to give the space a more rustic feel, with exposed wooden beams and stone, while expanding the real ale, craft beer and cider offering – with similarly impressive results. Offering a rotating menu of street food from traders allied to the BEATS collective was also a smart move.
While weekend club nights held in the perfectly formed back room inevitably pull in the punters, it’s the ever-changing drinks menu that’s undoubtedly the biggest attraction. Their ale and craft beer menu, tweaked from week to week, boasts a mix of local brews from the likes of Arbor, Wiper & True and Bristol Beer Factory, plus obscure selections from much further afield. The range changes from week to week, making repeat visits essential.

Great unique pub in the heart of stokes croft. Always come here with friends for a casual drink as they have a nice selection of craft beers and cosy atmosphere. Also Rays pizza's here are delicious!
Most disappointing - loud, unventilated, non - existent management, stinking live room - may have been ok last century - and the bouncers were like animals
