A little bit about us...

Regular events

We run regular  events here at the Volly so take a look at what's coming up on our Events page .

 If you would like to hold an event at our venue - either inside or outside in the garden - please let us know and we will do our best to make it a memorable one - for all the right reasons! We regularly host private parties, BBQs and even weddings.

A family and dog-friendly pub offering a warm welcome, great beer, real ale, fine wine and homemade locally sourced good food

Dating back to the 17th century, the Volunteer Tavern ('Volly' amongst friends) is conveniently located near Cabot Circus shopping centre in the heart of Bristol. We are tucked away amongst the trees - just far enough from the hustle and bustle of City life - and have a largely covered, walled garden.​ 

Inside, we are a small but perfectly formed wood-panelled pub that is proud to have built a reputation over the last five years for great beers, real ales, fine wines and very tasty homemade food (especially Sunday Roasts).  And in 2016 we were CAMRA's Bristol & District branch pub of the year!

Whether you are after Sunday roast, a working lunch, dinner with friends - or just a drink and a chat - we look forward to serving you! And you might just bump into one of our pub dogs; Mumma bear Treacle, or one of her children or grandchildren.
