This pub restaurant in Keynsham near Bristol is bursting full of rustic charm and is steeped in history. Formally a brass mill which produced the first ever brass battery pans back in 1927, this country pub now serves a seasonal menu of fresh food alongside a fine list of ales and wines. Benefitting from a beautiful beer garden and a stunning woodland backdrop, The Brassmills is the a great place to come if you’re wanting to escape into the middle of nowhere to enjoy a hearty meal.
The charming, stone facade of the pub gives it almost a cottage-like feel and resonates cosiness before you even head inside. While the interior is rife with exposed wooden beams, comfortable armchairs and exposed brickwork, giving the place an incredibly warm ambience, further added to by the roaring fire.
When it comes to the food, there are a huge number of different menus on offer including a vegan menu, a fixed price menu and of course a selection of Sunday roasts. The main food menu however, is packed full of appealing dishes and takes inspiration from all over the world. Starters include a garlic and rosemary baked camembert, seared scallops served with black pudding, crispy bacon and a pea puree, and chargrilled lamb koftas served with tzatsiki.
For main courses, you can expect classic such as hunter’s chicken, and a roasted rack of lamb, as well as a selection of steaks and burgers on offer. If none of those take your fancy, you can also opt for a stone-baked pizza. While for pudding, there’s everything from crumble of the day and banoffee pie, to Eton mess and vanilla cheesecake.
The drinks menu at The Brassmills includes a number of different wines available by both the bottle and the glass, craft beers, a lengthy gin menu, and of course plenty of soft drink options too.
