Couldn't disagree more unless you ref to the High St which is going the way of all UK High Streets that don't offer free parking.

It was more a general feel of the front. Parked by the Casino and walked down to Adventure Island with the kids. All along there, up the the Kursaal.

I think Southend suffers from having a crap beach.

Should've gone to Mawson's mate. Away from the seafront granted but it's a great little craft beer boozer.

Find myself gravitating to this pub more and more lately. Been great sitting out the front with a cold beer during the recent heatwave. Landlady and bar staff are fantastic too.

I hope you had a good time in Bris MB. I usually don't do the Beer Emporium this time of year as I prefer to be outside in the 400 degrees heat. Did you get to try any other places?


Sorry, didn't notice your post until now.

Monkeybubbles Jr Sr lives in Bristol now, he finished uni last year and decided to stay on because he loves it. Can't say I blame him. So I'm a regular visitor now.

Can you recommend somewhere interesting, so I can surprise him with insider knowledge when I next go?

I think it goes beyond the seafront, which has been a bit grim since I can remember. I walked from Chalkwell Park to West Road along the London Road and it feels a lot different. A lot of shops shut down, a lot of street drinkers, vacant commercial properties...

I imagine your son knows most of the good places now. Anyway here are some suggestions:

- If you like real ale then give the Cornubia a go (don't be put off by all the flags) and nearby is the Bridge, Severn Stars, Barleymow and Volunteer Tavern.
- Or get yourself a beard (if you don't have one) and try the pubs along Stokes Croft and Cheltenham Road.
- Wapping Wharf area near the M-Shed is good when the weather is sunny (great for people watching)
- Hotwells (Three Tuns, Bag Of Nails, Grain Barge, The Hope and Anchor, The Cottage, all good places)
- And there is also the pubs in Cotham, Gloucester Road, and Clifton
- Even Bedminster has some good places such as the Steam Crane, The Hare, The North Street Standard, The Tobacco Factory, The Coronation Inn
- In the centre try the Bank, Small Bar, Beer Emporium (I think you can tick that one off), Brewdog, Navy Volunteer, Harbourside No 1, the Strawberry Thief, the Apple (if you fancy cider), The Christmas Steps.
