We are now taking
Wednesdays to Saturday we have a new pop-up kitchen take over:
La Cocina started out in the taco game back in 2021 here at the Volly as a pop-up. After an exceptional winter serving their tacos, they moved quickly on to their own taco venture taking over The Little Taquero in early 2022 since then they've been driving a bright orange truck around the southwest serving their award-winning tacos. Since then they've been perfecting their take on the modern Latin American cuisine that we have in our Volly kitchen today!
What's on and when?
Open Mic Night 7pm till 9pm a free drink for any performer.
Tucked away behind Cabot Circus is one of the most charming beer gardens in Bristol. The Volunteer Tavern, or the Volly as it’s more commonly known, is an atmospheric yet relaxed pub in the city centre.
Where's it to?
What did you think?
The small looking kitchen is effectively taken over by other businesses- Sunday roasts were provided by All The Trimmings. I had slow cooked pork belly with a side of Cauliflower Cheese and apple sauce: it was one of the very best roasts I’ve had. Everything was well cooked, the pork belly was soft and tender and flavoursome as was the crackling. Lovely Yorkshire, a good portion of greens and superbly cooked roasties. The cauliflower cheese side is for 2 people but it was too good to waste! Desserts are on offer as well.
I loved it here! I've been wanting to go in for a while, really nice beer garden with sitting booths and tables, and then a petite inside with local art being displayed with a variety of drinks on offer. Ordered some dumplings off the menu and highly recommend, 3 options out of 5 for a vegetarian too!!

We popped in for a roast today and had a fab time! The roast was 10/10 (tender pork, crispy crackling, rich gravy, bubbling dishes of creamy cauli cheese). Friendly staff, food and drink well priced. Also just love the garden. We’ll be back!
