Bedroom at The Bowl


The Bowl is a traditional pub near Bristol with 12 cosy ensuite bedrooms.

With a history dating back to the 12th century, expect thick stone walls, rustic beams and open fires ready to roar in the winter, and a sunny patio beer garden for the warmer months.

On the menu, hearty pub classics sit alongside stunning seasonal dishes, with a cracking selection of award-winning Butcombe beer, local cider and wine behind the bar. The pub is dog-friendly, family-friendly, and ideal for families, couples, and groups.

The Bowl Inn is just minutes from Junction 15 and 16 of the M5 and Junction 20 of the M4, and a great base for exploring Bristol.

Nearby attractions include The Wave inland surfing lagoon and artificial wave pool in Easter Compton, Bristol Zoo Project wildlife conservation park, and The Mall Cribbs Causeway.
