Llandoger Trow


Real Ale Pubs

One of the most famous and oldest pubs in Bristol. The pub dates back to 1664 and is said to be haunted. Inside it is full of the charm and character of an old world pub. In ancient times the Llandoger Trow was frequented by smugglers and seamen. This old establishment also has some famous literary connections. It is said that Robert Louis Stevenson based the Spyglass, in his book Treasure Island, on this pub and, that the author Daniel Defoe based the character Robinson Crusoe on a sailor he met here. Inside, the flagstone floor, numerous, old nooks and crannies, pictures and artefacts from a bygone era, all add to the charm. Close your eyes and imagine the clientele of years gone by regaling each other with their seafaring tales. Either sit inside and enjoy the atmosphere or, on a sunny day choose one of the tables on the cobbled street outside. The bar serves a good range of draught and bottled beer, cider and traditional pub food.
