On Sunday nights we hold a MOVIE AND TAKEAWAY NIGHT. You can watch a movie and order a takeaway to be delivered here. Free entry.

Every Monday night we hold an OPEN MIC AND JAM NIGHT. Come and show us what you can do, then join in a group jam session. 8pm.



The Old Bookshop was recently voted the Number One intimate venue in Bristol by Ship Shape magazine. Very exciting!


Our garden is open. You can sit outside or, if it's raining, you can sit under cover. It's very cosy.


PRIVATE HIRE: People often ask whether they can arrange a private function here. We generally don't let out the place on Friday or Saturday nights. However, at other times of the week we can sometimes allocate space for a private event. It very much depends on the date/time/number of people. Give us a ring or email us at
