THE HATCHET INN
27 Frogmore Street, Bristol

 

 

 Once the haunt of notorious highwaymen, The Hatchet Inn is Bristol's oldest public house and was established in 1606. The 300 year old main door is said to have layers of human skin under the tar and many large offers have been made for it, but all declined. A cockfighting ring and a boxing ring have been here, and bare knuckle fights involving 'All England Champions' attracted enormous purses in days gone by.
