Laid-back pub that serves up one of Bristols’ cheapest roasts to a background of reggae beats. Drinks include local favourites and a good range of rum

For the assorted students, young professionals, party people and liberal locals that make up The Cadbury’s clientele, this pub has legendary status.

For many, the weekend isn’t complete without a hungover, bleary-eyed trip to the pub for its regular Reggae ’n’ Roasts Sunday session. As the name suggests, it’s an opportunity to tuck into one of the tastiest – not to mention cheapest – roasts in the city, while having your aching head soothed by some of the best roots, dub and reggae around.

The pub’s dedication to all things ‘rootical’ isn’t a new fad; it’s been the same for decades. It probably helps that The Cadbury is tucked away down a side street in the bohemian area of Montpellier, but this isn’t it’s only charm.

The building itself – an old, timber framed affair steeped in history, with a warren of low-ceilinged rooms inside – is a delight, and the staff are as laid-back as the regulars. The bar itself is stocked with local favourites – including various West Country guest ales and nine different types of rum – so you’re guaranteed to find something to tickle the taste buds.

Highly recommend the pub quiz on Tuesday nights run by Dan... not too difficult and the occasional brain teaser trivia that gets everyone in fierce debate... plus picture round, TV theme tune round, backwards music round and a specialist subject chosen by the runners up from the week before... Great entertainment and well worth the £1 entry fee!
