Cat Travel: Bag of Nails the reluctant cat pub

Hi everyone,

Towards the end of last year Iain and myself went to Bristol to meet up with a few friends. What we hadn’t realised at the time was that Bristol had it’s own reluctant cat pub! Luckily our friends introduced us to this amazing place.

You are wondering why we are calling it reluctant cat pub? Well that’s because Landlord Luke Daniels didn’t open this as a cat pub due to the cat cafe craze! His idea was to open a pub and giving it a personality and is therefore a reflection of who he is.

As some of you may know I am not just crazy about cats but also about board games so to find a place that combines both…. Heaven! 😀


The resident cats in the pub were taken in by him because he is a fellow cat lover.

Our friend with the resident kitten below. 🙂


And shortly after it was my turn for the kitten to cuddle up with me haha!

That little kitten sure LOVED the attention as soon it moved over to one of the other guests at the place… I guess the more human warmth the better 😮


But this place is not just about cats! It’s a great place to socialise over some amazing drinks from all across Europe as well as plenty of board games!!!

Below a gallery showing of some of their interior and other and one of the board games. 🙂

As you can see from the above this placed has its own unique quirky charm and is well worth a visit even if you have to take along friends that are not crazy about cats – You can always leave them with the drinks! The selection was amazing as it even had beers and other unusual drinks from Germany that are difficult to be found in some areas without going to a specialist shop! 😮

P.S: Did you spot our business cards in the gallery? 😀


This is it for today but more will come soon from the above kitty in form of a special!!! Stay tuned! 🙂

    What a great place to go to 🙂 The kitten is so sweet but the cat in the box waiting to be shipped by parcel post is just adorable.

    Been there! Cats and real ales, couldn’t be better 🙂 Sadly, none of the wee kitties came and sat on us 🙁 Am I right in thinking the beauty in the last photo is Philomena?

    Too sweet and funny. I really enjoyed this post. I thought it was about cats imbibing the drinks of their choices. Of course, YOU pay their bar bill!
