Time Out says

5 out of 5 stars

Craft beer pub with a focus on unconventional, high-alcohol brews

Look above the bar at Small Bar and after the list of IPAs, stouts, blonde beers and the like, you’ll see an extra category: crazy shit. Don’t expect beers of any less than ten percent abv here, and be thankful that you can choose to drink whatever unusual delight you have ordered in a bespoke one-third glass.

Small Bar is the brainchild of Bruce Gray, who managed the first BrewDog bar in Aberdeen before letting love get the better of him and following his wife to Bristol.

A constantly changing selection of beers among its 25 taps, some of which are brewed on the premises, means that return visits to Small Bar are a must. Its attitude to commercial lager is plain to see – water is dispensed from a Stella Artois tap.
