About The Pump House
The food style is predominantly British, taking inspiration from classic dishes and modern cooking techniques.
Everything is prepared on site, locally sources where possible and plants, that are foraged by our chefs.
Our a la carte and tasting menus evolve with the seasons and utilise the very best of the diverse ingredients the West Country has to offer.
we have visited 3 times in the last few weeks before concerts at ashton gate. despite being very busy the staff were excellent and the food great, especially the sharing platters. thank you
The venue and location were great however service was really slow and the price the food was average at best.
Wonderful lunch; everything totally spot on. Staff were fantastic.
This was a really great evening. 6 of us had the tasting menu. We elected not to see the menu in advance, but to be surprised by each course. All the courses were superb, including 2 puddings! The matched wines with each course were equally enjoyable. The service was excellent and knowledgable. Highly recommended
Food was really good. Special credit to the vegetarian main course of Stuffed Roscoff onion. That was a first for my husband to have a vegetarian dish as a main course and it definitely did not disappoint.
Great location, very busy as Take That concert - staff worked tirelessly and couldn't have done anymore- but unable to meet the business demands resulting in lengthy waits. Needed higher level of staffing to cope between 4 and 7pm
Second meal with you and just as good as the first. Lovely holiday atmosphere.
Great food, good service and nice atmosphere. Great experience and what a gin selection. My only criticism would be that there were only two ales out of the four pumps on a Saturday night.
We were really disappointed with our meal here. The service was brisk, unhelpful and unfriendly. The atmosphere was totally lacking. The main problem was the food took absolutely ages to arrive and when it did the portions were tiny. Some parts of the food were delicious- for instance the onglet steak dish contained some delicious steak but was accompanied by a handful of lukewarm oven chips that were covered in salt and 3 small pieces of celeriac. It was an additional £4 to have 5 cut up tomatoes with it. We went home after a rather expensive meal still feeling hungry. There are so many amazing places to eat in Bristol, don't waste your time eating here.
Excellent friendly service and great food
Worst ploughman’s ever
Very small portion of cheese on the cheese board especially for the price! I felt that the food quality didn't reflect the price. Great choice of beers however and nice service, good atmosphere in a unique setting.
A great pub, serving great food with great service, Kerry and Chloe stood out - very impressive and this place is definitely worth the visit.
Lovely food, good service and nice setting
Excellent food very relaxed environment, service a bit slow but it was very busy and we weren't in a hurry so all ok. Enjoyed a super Sunday lunch, many thanks, will be back soon.
The staff were really helpful and accommodating. The food was amazing and we really enjoyed our evening. Thank you.
The roast beef was a little tough, and the gravy was very watery and was just not as delicious as I would have hoped. Apart from that the rest of the food, the atmosphere and service were fantastic. Great experience!
Great food, service and atmosphere! Amongst other things, it’s so nice to have some really interesting and excellent quality vegetarian options 👍
Glasses and table cloth were dirty, our server was hard to get hold of and wasn’t busy. I had to get up and ask for several things as she didn’t check we were good. Food was great, but not a great experience Overall
Great place and food was good! limited choice of menu which was the only disappointing thing apart from the price! I don’t mind paying restaurant prices but not in a pub full of football fans before the game! I was there for the football so I didn’t mind the chaos.....
We visited on Easter Sunday, and to be expected, it was absolutely heaving. This did not however effect the service we received. We had booked a table and although the bar was extremely busy, we were very quickly shown to our table. The staff were brilliant particularly in light of how busy it was and of the course the added pressure of the nice weather. The fish stew and the pork rillettes were both beautiful and the roast beef and lamb was also lovely. It was a nice surprise to have such a large roast and the meat and vegetables were cooked perfectly. We will definitely visit again.
I have visited the pump house maybe a dozen times now, and I am always impressed with the staff and the standard of food and drink.
Food, drink and atmosphere all great. We had a lovely table upstairs and thoroughly enjoyed our evening. Our only frustration, even though the staff were extremely friendly and helpful, was that we did struggle to get their attention when we needed something. By way of example, one of our drinks (glass of wine) was forgotten and finding someone to ask took a while. It then arrived pretty close to the end of our main course which wasn't great. That was hopefully a one-off and we will certainly be back for more good quality food and drinks choices in a lovely environment.
I booked the Pump House for a special birthday. Kerry could not have been more helpful. Fantastic service.
