Straightforward one-room bar, mock fire to rear, big mirror, old pumpclips, ugly toby jugs above top bar shelf, nice window to street. I wrote down ‘great staff’, but can’t remember why. Pies & pasties in warm cabinet at bar, £1.50/£1.80, salvation!"
    Shamelessly stolen from Bristol CAMRA publication Pints West:
    Ten years after winning the branch pub of the year award we have the sad sight
    of the Bag O’Nails in St Georges Road, Hotwells closed and boarded up.
    Paul and licensee Manda had been looking for a buyer for some months, partly
    due to a health scare for Paul and partly the current tough trading conditions. Unfor-
    tunately no buyer came forward and they decided it was time to close up, finishing
    on the busy weekend of the harbour festival to go out on a high.
    It is now believed that there is a buyer lined up that hopes to reopen the pub in
    the not too distant future.
    Paul and Manda would like to thank all their customers for supporting them
    over the last three years and also Helen Perry for all her hard work behind the bar
    over many more years.

    Further to my nomination, I've just read that the CASK will soon be showcasing beers from Huddersfield's Mallinsons brewery. I've never come across their beers down this way but having read many a glowing review on previous BOTW threads, I may well head into town to try some out.

    A friend sent msg today stating that Cask would be serving 10 Marble beers from Tuesday. Dunno how long they'll last.

    Yes, I'd heard that and by some stroke of luck I will be passing through Victoria on Wednesday evening, so I think I'll drop in and see what's on. I heard they are having a meet the brewer event on the Wednesday night as well.
