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.
