Welcome to The Pump House

Situated in a prime waterside location close to where the city docks meet the River Avon, this acclaimed gastropub is housed in a former Victorian pumping station. Under the leadership of chef proprieter Toby Gritten, The Pump House provides a perfect destination for those in search of exquisite food and quality beverages, in fabulous surroundings.

Our Food

The food style is predominantly British with influences from the continent.

All our menus combine classic dishes and modern cooking techniques.  Everything is prepared on site, from bread to ice-cream. Fish and shellfish are delivered daily from the coast and meat sourced locally where possible. Many of the dishes feature ingredients, such as different varieties of wild mushroom and plants, that are foraged from the local area by the chefs.

Both menus evolve with the seasons and utilise the very best of the diverse ingredients the West Country has to offer.


The Drinks

In keeping with the passion for local produce in the kitchen, the Pump House stocks many of the regions finest beverages. Local ales from Butcombe and Bath ales are a permanent fixture, with a monthly guest ale from producers such as Cheddar Valley, Wye Valley Ales and our new favourite The Celt Experience. We often find that customers are spoilt for choice when faced with our selection of beers on tap!

We have been searching high and low to source as many local spirits as possible to add to a vast collection that we already have behind the bar. We have a love for gin here at The Pump House and were pioneers in the recent trend. Local gins include Bramley and Gage’s Six o’ clock Gin, Cotswold Gin and our personal favourite Psychopomp gin which is made in a microbrewery in Montpelier.
