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 our  Café | Bar | Kitchen is 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.

Be it coffee and pasty on the way to work, our absolute classic dish of fish and chips on a summer evening or a hearty sarnie to fuel your day exploring the many sights of Bristol, we have an appealing array of deli food and hot dishes to suit.
