Amazing... so impressed by how the Pump House has bounced back during these difficult times. Both the food and the service were faultless.

Really impressively ambitious, out-of-the-ordinary food for a pub -- lovely building and location -- good outdoor tables quayside -- handling CoVid brilliantly -- except for the delivery of the food, which was too slow, but understandable & forgivable in the circs

Had a wonderful lunch with my daughter. Really engaging and helpful staff and importantly you knew they were doing everything they could to make you safe.

It was our first time back to the pump house after the easing of covid restrictions. I thought the systems in place were brilliant, particularly the key system in place for the toilets. We felt very safe. The service from the staff was excellent. It was so busy, we could see the staff were rushed off their feet and we still received amazing service. They were incredible given the new working conditions they find themselves in. The food, as always, was brilliant.

We had a lovely time at The Pump House yesterday. Staff were very friendly and attentive. And the sourdough bread was delicious!

Food is reliably good here and it's one of the best places to come when the sun is out

We loved our visit, the food was absolutely amazing, we both had the salt beef sandwich then shared triple cooked chips and panzanella salad. We sat outside, it was the hottest day of the year so it was quite hard work for the staff as they were also fully booked by the looks of it! But the service was fine considering all the Covid restrictions and the heat! Would definitely recommend and be back to try more of the deli menu!

Really enjoyed being able to go out for lunch again after being on lockdown for so long. Sitting in the sunshine watching people go by is such a simple pleasure, but much appreciated now. The staff are lovely and are going to great lengths to allow customers to enjoy the pub whilst keeping safe. My elderly mum and her friend thoroughly enjoyed the visit.

Delicious fish. The tartar sauce was amazing. I love what they’ve done with the place to get them through lockdown and hope that the shop continues to be part of the community. Lovely pub. Great food. Great drinks. Great service.

Friendly service and excellant choice on the deli menu, perfect for an impromptu Monday night treat. Can't wait to come back when they resume their magnificent gin collection.

Music was a little loud for a lunch meeting but you can't please everyone. If customers are expected to find a menu on your website, it would be useful to write down the URL somewhere along with your WiFi details. A blackboard above the bar with menu choices in big letters would even easier. Food, beer and staff were great.

The outside tables were not properly cleaned between guests - only a very perfunctory partial wipe. We expected more care in these covid times.
