Visit The Pony & Trap at Breaking Bread on The Downs

The Pony is still closed for the time being – we will be back but not quite yet. Although the pub is closed, you can still come and join the team at Breaking Bread, a socially distanced pop up on The Downs, Bristol. See our news article or the Breaking Bread website for more information. 

An award winning country restaurant welcoming visitors from far and wide. First rate food, informally served by passionate people.

Since opening in 2006, we’ve always tried to channel the downright spectacular landscape that surrounds the pub and make it part of The Pony & Trap. Be it using local growers, tracing the best meat the Chew Valley and the surrounding area has to offer or using our own garden’s wares for chef essentials, we’re constantly looking to incorporate the land in to what we do.
