Dodo Pub Co to open first Bristol venue

Oxford-based Dodo Pub Co has taken over The Cross Hands in Fishponds, Bristol, its first site in the city, taking its portfolio to seven.

The Cross Hands will be renamed The All Inn when it opens its doors in May following a refurbishment. The Dodo Pub Co’s traditional, yet quirky, welcoming style will run throughout the new pub,

The All Inn will serve up Dodo Pub Co's menu of dirty burgers, chicken wings, and authentic slow rise Neapolitan pizzas with a selection of craft beers and cocktails.

The business was founded in 2009 by Leo Johnson and Chris Manners. Leo shared, 'We’ve been wanting to find the right place for a Dodo pub in Bristol for several years now.

'Two of us lived there for a while and we all love its vibrancy and the feeling of inclusion that seems to permeate the city. It’s got a great mix of pubs, bars and restaurants, and we firmly believe that our neighbourhood vibe will fit right in.'
