Pub Scene (Interior Angles)
Pub Scene (Interior Angles)
The pub scene across the world is characterised by its casual warmth and conviviality. It has none of the pretences or formality of a restaurant or cocktail bar. It is the relaxed setting in which friends and strangers alike can choose to meet. The pub is where we go to celebrate a special occasion with a group of chums, but also where we might go to flirt intimately with a prospective lover. It is a comfortable destination for seeking out the company of others. Whether located on a street corner in the Scottish Highlands, Munich or New Zealand, a favourite pub is defined by its own distinct atmosphere and character.
Pubs are distinguished as much by their interior decor, as by the beer and liquor they sell and the customers that mingle around the bar. These qualities combine to give a 'local' its particular appeal, with a draw far beyond its immediate locality. These very unique, idiosyncratic attributes of pubs, which were once taken for granted, are now in real danger of extinction, as bar chains with standardised designs and drinks' menus are rolled out across city centres and main streets.
Turning its back on the trend towards homogeneity of today's watering holes, Pub Scene celebrates the often exuberant, sometimes elegant decor, and always singular, wow factor of public drinking places, whether they are big or small, traditional or contemporary. In her engaging and anecdotal style, author Jane Peyton describes some of the world's best looking pubs, including British Victorian Gin Palaces, classic Art Nouveau Belgian cafe bars, Germany's Beloved bierkellers, Australia's amazing beachside beer-gardens and America's notable brew-pubs.

The Bell Prewitt Street Redcliffe Bristol BS1
The Bell Prewitt Street Redcliffe Bristol BS1
The old Bristol Corporation was very jealous of the rights of its citizens and legislation against 'foreigners' was severe. No one who was not a free burgess was allowed to trade in the city and so these strangers had to find accommodation outside the city walls. It was in the area to the south of St Mary Redcliffe that a few Chinamen sought refuge in the sixteenth century and the old name for China was given to the area, Cathay. The earliest record we have of this name is in 1603 when it appeared in the church’s register. It is in Cathay then that you will find the Bell in today’s Prewitt Street, which has been variously known as Privet, Pievet and Pewet Street. It stands isolated in a street which never contained many houses as it has been an industrial area since the eighteenth century. It was local industry which justified the Bell’s existence, for opposite the inn is the Kiln, the sole survivor of the large glass works which were a prominent feature of the eighteenth century Bristol skyline. The original cone was 150 feet high and had an internal dimension of 60 feet and was used in the manufacture of glass bottles. The earliest record of a glasshouse here was in 1651 but by the time Daniel Defoe visited the city in 1761 he counted fifteen. In the 1850’s the glass making was incorporated in H. & T. Proctor’s Cathay Chemical Works and the Bell was there to provide the workers with their necessary liquid refreshment. The cone was demolished in 1930 but the base was retained and is now incorporated in the elegant Kiln Restaurant. Early maps of the area show many glass works with cones reaching up to the sky but Sketchley lists only two inns in Cathay, the Bell and the Ship. There is still a Ship directly behind St Mary Redciffe but it has been altered so much that nothing of the original remains apart from the name. The Ship and the Bell were two of the most popular inn names; Sketchley lists twenty seven Ships and fifteen Bells in Bristol. Our Bell was known as the Blue Bell in 1770 when John Hemborough was its victualler, probably to distinguish it from the others, but by 1793 its woman victualler, Mary Baker, once more called it just the Bell. In 1895 the inn was sold to Bristol United Breweries as a 'double licensed house with beer, wine and exciseable liquors to be consumed on or off the premises.' The great musician Handel said the bell was our national musical instrument and certainly the number of Bell Inns in the city reflects our fondness for this art. The name was often associated with a nearby cathedral and here we have St Mary Reddiffe which, though it looks like a cathedral, is in fact a parish church, 'the fairest, goodliest and most famous parish church in England' announced Queen Elizabeth when she visited it in 1574. Its position on the red cliffs above the docks at the very centre of shipping and industry is the key to its history. Since 1180, merchants had begun and ended their journeys at the shrine of Our Lady of Red Cliff, and it is to them and to the most famous merchant of all, William Canynges, that we owe this superb church as it is now. It was in its muniment room that the young Chatterton found the parchments on which he wrote the Rowley poems which brought him no fame during his short lifetime but a posthumous place in English literature. Today, the inn stands isolated but early deeds of 1778 show that it had a sail-cloth factory, a flax-drying factory and a twine manufacturer on either side and a brewhouse, yard and gardens behind it. The site on which the Bell Inn stands was originally a forge. The colourful sign shows the process of casting a bell and this theme runs through the inn’s decor. This inn is much more interesting than one would suspect. It was originally a small inn, built in 1750 expressly for its purpose, to provide drink for industrial workers. The exterior is little changed and the bow windows lighting the bar parlour are believed to be the earliest examples of this feature in the city. The low doorway leads to the main bar which would originally have been two parlours. The brick fireplace to the left at the back marks the end of the original pub but Courages have created an extension which is attractive but, more important, totally in keeping with the original intention of the Bell. The cellar has been opened up, the original flagstones retained, the walls stripped to the brickwork, and a new bar created. Pictures of the bell-forging process line the walls and seven bells hang from the low roof as though awaiting the bell-ringers. It is easy to forget that these are made of fibre glass, they look as though they have just been forged. On the wall hangs a huge bellows which could have come from the old forge. The Bell doesn’t have a strictly local drinkers; they come from all over Bristol to this shy city pub whose links with our eighteenth century ancestors are so very much alive. It is pleasing to note that it has retained an atm
