The CornubiaReal Ale! Real Food! Real People!!

Tucked away on Temple Street in the heart of Bristol is the city’s best kept secret and much loved Real Ale house, The Cornubia.

The Cornubia boasts an impressive selection of Real Ales and offers up to 8 different choices from all around the UK on any given day.

Included in our 8 Real Ales on offer, we have our very own bespoke seasonal beer ‘Cornubia’ which is brewed for us by local brewers and delivers a unique taste for each season.

We are very passionate about our Real Ales and are one of only 4 ’Society Of Independent Brewers Association‘ pubs in the Bristol Area.

We also sell up to 5 ciders from South West breweries as well as the usual selection of draught and  bottled beers, lagers, wines and spirits you would expect from your favourite public house.

As well as our fine drinks selection, we also cater for our hungry guests with our choice of traditional Cornish Pasties and hand-made pork pies with a wide selection of chutneys and pickles – not to mention our famous home-made fiery pickled eggs – the ones that bite back!

All of which can be enjoyed in our beautiful secluded beer garden with the added bonus of our frequent BBQ’s – weather permitting!

We are a ‘dog friendly’ pub and are rather fond of our own pets which include our three lovely dogs – Bella and Saffy and the new family member Lucky, our turtles.

The Cornubia was originally built in 1775 as shop units for a wig-maker and is the only building in the area to have survived the bombings of the Second World War.

The name Cornubia derives from the old Roman name for Cornwall, and has since been the name given to both a trading ship and steam train during the industrial revolution.

In 2010, the Cornubia was taken over by Award-Winning Landlord and Landlady, Phil and Jacki.

Originally Phil and Jacki took on the Cornubia as Managers after moving to the South West over 10 years ago, but quickly fell in love with the pub and its customers and were delighted to buy the lease in 2012.
