Our Pubs

We don’t all want the same things from our locals, so our Pubs are individually suited to their environments…

The Bear

6-10 Wellsway, Bath

A 15 minute walk from Bath’s historic city centre, The Bear is a landmark for locals and visitors alike, thanks to Snowy, the life sized polar bear, guarding our main entrance!


The Grace

Bishopston, Bristol

Pub, bar, dining rooms, hidden oasis, The Grace is your friendly neighbourhood boozer at the heart of the Bishopston community in North Bristol.


Alma Tavern & Theatre

Clifton, Bristol

After a speedy refurbishment and a change of ownership, The Alma Tavern and Theatre is back for the next act! Now run by the team behind Zazu’s Kitchen, we’re super pleased to welcome the Alma into our little family of pubs.


Westbury Park

Henleaze, Bristol

In the heart of Henleaze, this iconic pub now offers a contemporary new look and a British menu to match, including a gourmet range of homemade pizzas and quality Sunday lunch.


The Greenbank

Easton, Bristol

Here at The Greenbank, its all about the community. About providing the best possible service for the neighbourhood. Serving up a cracking Sunday Roast, a decent pint, glass of wine, great band or space for local groups.


The Knowle

Knowle, Bristol

A traditional neighbourhood pub in the heart of Knowle and South Bristol. This former hotel has enjoyed a major refurb recently and now offers a completely fresh look, redesigned bar areas and new menus, not to mention the restyled garden.

About Us

A Zazus’ pub is about people, food and fun.

We look to run the kind of place we’d all love to have at the end of our street: somewhere to eat, drink and socialise; a home from home “where everyone knows your name”. Somewhere you can enjoy a great bite to eat and decent drink in a relaxed, contemporary environment which is warm, welcoming and, particularly, female friendly.

We are always chuffed to see the wide mix of customers in all our pubs.

Our aim is for each pub to be an integral part of the community, with its own individual character, a good neighbour, designed and run to suit the local need by a committed and manager-led team who are encouraged to see the place as their own business.

We started off with a couple of café/restaurants in Bristol before deciding to focus on pubs in 2016. We love hospitality and, with the invaluable input of a talented and passionate operational team, have done well so far in reviving and re-energising a lot of failing sites in and outside of Bristol.

We will continue to look for opportunities around the West Country where we think we can add a bit of sparkle and fun and deliver a cherished asset at the heart of the community.

The Team
We’re a merry bunch of five shareholders and operational heads.

Current Vacancies

Join Us

Zazus is a young, growing business with many opportunities for talented people who buy into our culture of wanting to deliver stand-out service we can all be proud of.

We’re not perfect (yet!). But are working hard to be a company everyone wants to be a part of and where everyone is valued. We totally buy into the adage that if you treat staff like they can make a difference, then they will.

Job opportunities and career growth come up all the time and a key company principle is to appoint to senior positions from within the family, wherever possible. If you have integrity, passion and a whole bundle of energy, then you will enjoy exhilarating challenges and opportunities for personal and career growth (not to mention finding lifelong friends). We are serious about our profession but know how to have fun.

Our current vacancies are advertised here but even if there’s nothing here for you yet, come and say hello and we can brief you on future developments at Zazus’ Magnolia Towers.
