Until last year I lived in Bristol quite near to this pub, and I used it regularly until around 2008 when the lack of service became intolerable - doubtless a reflection of the uncertainty about ownership and management. Back in the early 2000s this was an established local institution with regular drinking and dining customers - but these seem to have been alienated over the years. This pub has tremendous potential, with two large bars, a conservatory and a very large beer garden. If it was in stable management, with a consistent quality of food and drink, it should prove extremely popular. There is very little competition until you get to Westbury - the Westbury Park Tavern was a morgue when i last used it, and the Beehive has closed so I understand.
The Eastfield needs good managers to revitalise it, and save it from ending up being converted to flats or an old peoples' home. So good luck to anyone think of taking it over!
