Joe Strummer and Mick Jones record ‘London Calling’ over the Westway; the Sex Pistols burn out in San Fransisco. Across the UK, firemen, bankers, mechanics and printers are on strike and The Iron Lady is knocking at No. 10. In the back room of a Bristol diner, Mr Payne begins brewing pale ale for thirsty customers. The country’s first craft beer is a runaway success; Smiles Brewery is formed and moves to The Brewery Tap, now Colston Yard.

We’ve revived the Smiles’ spirit at the Yard. From the team behind The Old Crown Inn, Kelston, and Barabiku Outdoor, we’re home to one of the country’s widest selection of craft beers, serving up mouthwatering food around the clock. Work, play, whatever.
