The Famous Royal Navy Volunteer British Drinks Emporium

Bristol’s largest craft beer and drinks emporium

autumn menu

We only serve beers from UK craft brewers, and have an extensive range of spirits from craft distillers here in Britain.  We do things a bit differently here and love to find quality local suppliers, whether it’s a great Bristol gin producer, or an independent butcher producing the best beef in the West.


As well as craft beer, we also have a great bar menu, private bookings spaces and a superb and very popular Sunday lunch.  Have a look at our menus page to find out more.


We also have a beautiful 'secret' roof terrace, a versatile function room and a large restaurant area - all of these are available to book for parties, events and meetings.  We even have a dedicated events manager to help you make your event smoothly.  Why not visit our meetings and parties page to find out more? 


Pop in and explore the best of the British food and craft beer scene, we’d love to see you.

Our Philosophy

“You really can’t have great products without having staff who are passionate about them and about the customers.”

We take the same pride in our staff as we do in our products.  We scour the county for the best in UK craft beer, so it’s only right that we scour the corners of the West Country to find the best people to serve it.  
We believe in exciting drinks, exciting food, and excited people.

Beer Library

Bored of the boards? We want you to explore UK Craft Beer with us, so we’re working with all our brewery friends to create the Volley Beer Library. You’ll be able to visit the library and see which beers are on the pumps and which are coming soon. You’ll also be able to browse through one of Britain’s best beer lists to see all the beers your favourite brewery makes.

There’s a lot of beer out there, and it’ll take us a while to add them all, but we hope the Beer Library will be up and running in a month or so.
