Despite being a monday in January with an empty restaurant, lovely place to sit and nice atmosphere. Staff were friendly knowledgable and professional, food was fantastic. Gin and wine selection was also great. Highly recommend and will be visiting again.

Limited choice of dishes because few of the dishes from the menu were not available. Burger and vegetaian dish were not good at all, no quality. Fish was ok. A huge deception on the quality of the food, I wont recommand the pump house for the food.

Our Christmas dinner was beautiful the food was delicious, that being said my scallop start was on the very small side which was disappointing as it carried a supplement. However the venison main was superb. The wine list was also over priced for the wine that was available . These things aside the meal was really good and all of our party gave very positive feedback as being there best Christmas meal as a company so far. Our service was relaxed but that did give us time to enjoy our meal and we did not feel rushed. It was a shame that we were on two tables which did mean that our group was a bit fragmented and conversation was harder to bond the group together.

Great informal Sunday dining for our party of 8, good food and a nice vibe. We dined downstairs, probably this was the better choice? Desserts took a little longer than expected to appear, no explanation offered? We'd definitely visit again. Thanks.

Good selection of vegan food for the two vegans but unfortunately had run out of steak for the carnivore!

This is a group review... It's always hard to please everyone when you're a large group of 20+ but I can safely say that this was the best Christmas meal we've ever had in Bristol over the last 8 years that we've organised it. The pump house are a well oiled machine full of foodies who know their stuff! Service was faultless. Courses came out on time with no issue & the food was impeccable. The value for money is unbelievable when you see the amount of Christmas menu's in the Bristol area. 3 courses for £29.50 and it's not your standard 3 course either. Each dish came out well presented & basically felt like we were having a taster menu at a Michelin star restaurant. Every dish was just as good as the other. The presentation was mouthwatering and the taste was even more delightful. (Quite a rarity). From the freshly made bread & butter to the side plates that accompanies the main course - you could really tell that these guys & gals understand that great food starts with the ingredients and ends with passion to please. We will all be coming back again that's for sure

Kerry has been wonderful in helping with this booking and accommodating our various requests. The room was well set-up on the night and it was great to have a separate cloakroom. The atmosphere was great and the music was not too loud. The 3 vegans liked their menu and most others enjoyed their food, especially those who had fish. The potatoes, however, were not great. They seemed under-cooked and in one case inedible. It was a shame you ran out of the red wine we had ordered as the alternative was not as popular. Overall, a good time was had and we will be back.

Food was great - Christmas meal. Only down side was that there was no Christmas music and we had to wait an hour between starters and mains. Drinks were very pricey so maybe drink deals for Christmas meals, for example on multiples of wine bottles. Other than that it was really great and staff were very happy and we will certainly come again.

We had fantastic Christmas meal at the Pump House last week, with everyone feeding back to me that it was the best Christmas meal they had received for many years. Many thanks to all the staff at the Pump House, exceptional service and very organised. I also really appreciated the phone call earlier in the morning to confirm details, so that I wasn't bothered when I arrived. Well done, we will be back.
