From Humble Beginnings
Named after the flamboyant Jersey born Victorian actress and racehorse breeder Lily Langtry, whose black and white photographs adorn the walls, this Whiteladies Road pub re-launched in June 2014 after extensive refurbishment. With the introduction of a fabulous Garden Area in the summer of 2015 we have regular BBQ’s accompanied by acoustic live music.
The Jersey Lily is now an ale and cider house able to offer real choice that changes on a regular basis. As well as Wickwar Wessex Brewery’s popular ales, such as BOB, Falling Star and Cotswold Way, there are several rotating guest ales. For the cider fans, there is Symonds, Cloudy Apple and Traditional Guest offerings as well as a wide selection of domestic and international bottled products. We are also very proud of our Gin and Cocktail menus which evolve reflecting the seasons & craft spirit movement.
We have a relaxed atmosphere with vintage silent films by day and candle lit tables with tasteful back ground music by night. On Thursday evenings we showcase the best of Bristol Acoustic music talent whilst offering our crafted cocktails 2 for the price of 1.
Food is important to us; we source from award winning local suppliers and demand fresh, local, seasonal produce where available. Our food menu changes daily to reflect this but you will generally find classics such as pulled pork baps, handmade burgers, colourful salads and a “Bristol Ploughman’s board”. We also have an Express Lunch menu and exquisite contemporary light bites and tapas sharers. Make sure you keep Sunday’s free to sample one of the best roasts in Bristol. Children are welcome too, with a selection of meals available.
Free Wi-Fi is available and although we are far from a sports pub we do show BT and terrestrial sports in a relaxed and comfortable environment.
