This is the moment a mass brawl broke out outside a Bristol pub when trouble erupted among a group of men.
The disturbance was filmed from a passer-by across Downend Road, who captured the trouble as it unfolded outside the Horseshoe pub in Downend.
The trouble happened at around 6pm on Monday evening, June 13, and included an interjection from a passer-by walking two large Newfoundland dogs.
The start of the video doesn’t capture the exact moment the trouble began – by the time the passer-by started filming, two men were already locked in a clinch over one of the outside tables of the pub, with two women trying to pull them apart.
Another man with a grey hoodie entered the fray and pushed a man in a black t-shirt over, and began raining blows on him. He was joined by a man in a red shirt who also started punching him from the pavement.
Eventually, more and more people became involved, and the man in the grey hoodie was sent tumbling over the wooden planters the pub has to mark out the outside seating area on the corner of Downend Road and Westerleigh Road.
From then, the intervention of others in the pub prevented further violence, with the argument returning to shouting and pointing, as things calmed down.
A spokesperson for the pub played down the trouble, telling Bristol Live that it was ‘resolved and dealt with’ at the time of the incident. Greene King, the pub chain that owns the Horseshoe, said a spokesperson for the pub said: “Our team became aware of an incident involving a group of customers on Friday evening and we immediately called the police.”
Avon and Somerset police said they have no record of any call out on Monday evening to an incident in Downend.
