The club is really well situated with easy access to a range of attractions for players with time to spare and their non-playing companions who would like to explore.
There is no bar at the club because the head lease forbids it (it's Quaker land), but you are free to bring your own alcoholic drinks and enjoy them on the premises. There's a drinks fridge if you need it.
The club is within 5-minutes' walk of a small parade of mainly food shops (no charity shops unfortunately): a couple of small supermarkets, take-aways (Indian, Chinese, Pizza, a Fish & Chip shop), a family friendly café/bistro, and a pub. All just NW of the club on Shirehampton Road (B4054).The small supermarkets open early and sell sandwiches should you require a simple lunch.
The fish and chip shop is particularly excellent and recommended, though sadly closed on Sundays. To avoid waiting, phone an order to collect 0117 968 2465.
For a wider selection of small shops, you can check out Henleaze or Westbury-on-Trym.
A longer walk in the opposite direction (beware the hill back) takes you to another small parade and 15 minutes further on and you’re on the glorious Downs with amazing views along the Avon including the Suspension Bridge. There’s a delightful café near the water tower and usually an ice-cream van by the view point. If you take the car, there is free parking for 5 hours.
For a trip into Bristol, its Harbourside, museums, galleries and shops, take the No. 4 bus, which runs frequently enough from the end of our road. Take it in the opposite direction and you’ll end up (eventually!)in the out-of-town shopping centre and cinema complex at Cribbs Causeway.
Enjoy your visit.
