why we love The Hillgrove

The Hillgrove is one of five pubs owned by local brewery Dawkins. All are a variation on a well-tested theme, run by passionate landlords who understand the value of a community meeting point. The Hillgrove sits just behind Stoke’s Croft, making it a buzzing hub for musicians and artists. 

We love The Hillgrove because it was the first pub to sell Wiper & True. We love the constant rotation of awesome street food pop-ups and we love one of the biggest selections of cask beers in Bristol. But, most of all, we love The Hillgrove because it’s our local.


In Bristol, we’re pretty spoiled for beer, all year round; but the brewers, publicans and organisers of Bristol Beer Week all manage to go the extra mile to make this week the pinnacle of the beer drinking calendar.
