These days, Southville residents are pretty well off for quality drinking options, with The Hare, The Steam Crane and The Tobacco Factory making North Street one of Bristol’s better stretches for craft beer enthusiasts. Even so, The North St Standard has managed to make its’ mark in a crowded marketplace by offering something a little different.
Stylistically, it’s similar to its’ big brother – the Gloucester Road-based Urban Standard – with furniture, décor and artwork (provided by local street art specialists Upfest) that’s modern, stripped-back and hipster friendly (see also The Canteen in Stokes Croft). There’s a similar feel to the popular food offering, too, which offers a thoroughly contemporary twist on traditional pub fare. The seasonal specials – particularly the ‘Catch of the Day’ fish option – are always worth a look, too.
Drinks-wise, you’ll normally find six or so craft beers on offer, with local microbrewery favourites being joined by continental and North American lagers and ales. They recently collaborated with Easton-based Arbor Ales to produce their own house beer, too, the rather tasty Double Standard.
