Seven Stars, Bristol, Somerset (pub #1484)   Leave a comment

7 Stars Bristol sign

We had already noted the 7 Stars having spotted it and the sign of the plough down an alley a few months earlier.  Then, the Hairy Bikers (Dave and Si) did a series on Britain’s Historic Pubs and gave a bit of the history of this one: seems that the abolitionist Thomas Clarkson allied himself with the publican using the house as a centre for anti-slavery political actions.  Most importantly, it is a proper bourbon bar (rare in this land) and serves up a wide range of this nectar of the gods.

7 Stars Bristol jazz corner

We took our beverages to the Jazz Corner and listened to the chatter of the regulars overlain with the spectacular musical picks of the hosts.  The place smells a bit but it has a heart of gold.  Down an alleyway, so use this map.
