Fun, energetic, and quirky, The Birkett Tap is a great drinking and dining venue in the heart of Bristol. It does not stop at drinks and food though, it keeps a rustic-pub feel at its heart while introducing retro games nights, FIFA tournaments, and a vinyl music night on Fridays.

With a huge range of craft, cask, premium lagers, and ciders, alongside all your favourite spirits, nobody will miss out on a drink here. 

This fun, friendly venue is all about sharing with your mates, whether that's sharing plates of tapas, a pizza, or a Friday night sing-a-long. 

Popular sharing plates include the loaded nachos piled high with smoky, slow-cooked barbecue beef but if you can't decide on just one dish, it's no issue thanks to the delectable selection of small plates. Try the grilled halloumi tasty tacos with their hot, sticky, sweet Buffalo sauce and add plates of Japanese-style karaage chicken and crispy calamari for the three plates deal. 

All of the hand-stretched, stone-baked pizzas can be pimped to perfection with bacon, chicken, halloumi, and mushroom all on the list to create your pizza masterpiece. Don't forget to add a side of fries where you can keep it simple or branch out with angry fries, sweet and sour pickled onion fries, or go spicy with salted chilli fries. 

After singing the night away and testing out all the delicious cocktails, you can reconvene for a brunch that really means business. A full English contains all the classic components, with a veggie version ensuring that no one misses out. The menu gets creative with a breakfast wrap as well as a lunch-style Mexican quesadilla. 

For those with a sweeter tooth, the sweet-a-bisc waffles are sure to hit the spot. Golden Belgian waffles come topped with Nutella hazlenut spread, a drizzle of salted caramel sauce, before being finished off with a sprinkling of Lotus Biscoff pieces.
