We have a few priorities: we hope to support our local community, collaborate with an abundance of Bristol based independent businesses and work closely with our insanely talented and hugely appreciated team!

A little bit about us….

Our beautiful building is situated in a prime waterside location close to where the city docks meet the River Avon and bathing in the shadows of the Clifton Suspension Bridge. We are housed in a former Victorian pumping station and maintains many of it’s original features.

We strive to use locally sourced food and support our community along with small independent suppliers.

The Pump House provides a perfect destination for those in search of flavorful food and quality beverages, in fabulous surroundings.
