Sister pub to The Pipe & Slippers across town. The ethos is much the same, mixing pub and bar culture with a kitchen that does tapas and pieminister pies. The real boon of this place is the 1970s NSM jukebox which only plays vinyl. It won't accept today's new fangled coins mind, so old school 10ps and 50ps are bought from the bar.

Take the suburban train line to Bedminster station from Bristol Temple Meads;
Commendable co-op that does good coffee as well as vegetarian and vegan food. All ingredients are organic or sourced locally making this an ethical, guilt-free place to eat. Sadly, there's not a single 'Now' compilation in their jukebox.
3 Ninetree Hill, BS1 3SB (just off Stokes Croft);
tel: 0117 924 9200;
A pub with a phenomenal jukebox hiding away where the Georgian terraces of Kingsdown juxtapose against the high-rise post-war housing of the 1960s. Manu Chao, Motown, jazz, reggae, all await your jukebox selection.
53 Hillgrove St North, BS2 8LT
