With the last MA Leaders Club meeting of 2023 taking place this week, we've taken a look at where we will be visiting as part of the event in Bristol.

The Stable

Waterside sourdough pizza, local craft pints and live music are what The Stable prides itself on.

The group has nine sites in total including Bath, Birmingham, Bournemouth, Bristol, Cardiff, Falmouth, Fistral, Plymouth and Winchester.

Located on Canon’s Road, in the city’s Harbourside, the Bristol venue will be where we are starting the day, hosting the stellar line up of speakers for the MA Leaders conference.

Whistle Punks

Labelled as ‘an unrivalled social extravaganza’, Whistle Punks is an urban axe throwing venue.

Started seven years ago by long-time friends John Nimmons and Jools Whitehorn, the business now has sites in London, Manchester, Leeds and Bristol.

The Bristol venue was the company’s fourth hosting six lanes, a bar and a pizza oven as well as hosting events such as bottomless brunches and student nights.

The Apple

A cider bar on a 1930s Dutch barge is where the Apple is based, serving traditional farmhouse ciders to the heart of Bristol.

It is located at the end of the city’s iconic King Street where it has been based since it opened in 2008.

The bar serves a plethora of apple-based drinks with around 30 ciders available including options on draught and bottled as well as farm-pressed apple juice on its soft drinks menu alongside a number of beers, wines and spirits.

The Famous Royal Navy Volunteer

This historic pub is known locally as ‘the Volley’ and serves beers from UK-based craft brewers, offers a wine list put together by a local merchant and an extensive spirits range from craft distillers in the UK, all of which change regularly.

Situated in Bristol’s King Street, the area is a cobbled thoroughfare adjacent to the city’s old docks while the building dates back to the 17th​ century.

The Lanes

Boasting five stringless bowling lanes, three boutique karaoke rooms, pool, table football and Ray’s Pizza, The Lanes has something for everyone.

For music lovers, the venue also hosts a plethora of lice music from local favourites to national and international touring artists as well as up to four club nights every week with some of Bristol’s and the UK’s top DJs.
