Wetherspoon has added to its pubs in Bristol – with the opening of The W. G. Grace.

The pub, managed by Paul Squires (pictured) has been built on the site of a former nightclub.

The nearby Clifton College cricket ground, known as The Close, was the ground where Dr WG Grace, one of the all-time cricketing greats, played his first serious representative match, at the age of 15.

Born in 1848, at Downend, then a village and now a suburb of Bristol, Grace scored 14 first-class centuries at The Close, including 221 runs against Middlesex, taking 10 wickets in the same match.

The pub specialises in real ales, serving a wide range of beers, including those from local and national brewers.

It has a pavement cafe-style area at the front, where smoking is permitted in a designated area.
