Well known as a craft beer bar, The Aviator offers a wide range of drinks from both the local area and around the world. There are 13 beers on tap at any time, which change frequently to give a wide range of choice every time you visit. And fitting of any fine establishment that sells craft beer, there’s an impressively tasty menu too, featuring just the type of satisfying no-fuss food to enjoy with a pint – from ribs, wings and burgers to pies and sharing platters, all sourced from within the West Country where possible. But it’s not the kind of greasy fast food that you’d expect – oh no, only the best tasting meat of the highest quality will be found here – and offered in generous portions too. From time to time The Aviator runs beer and food tastings, where you can experience a range of dishes accompanied by complementary beers. Keep an eye out on social media to hear about the latest goings-on. Just a few minutes’ walk from Whiteladies Road, it’s a perfect place to meet with friends for a relaxed evening of happy eating and drinking. And as the name of the bar suggests, there’s a huge array of plane memorabilia adorning the walls and furniture – joining together in perfect union Bristol’s love of beer and aviation.
