Set in a lovely location, we walked down to the pump house for food and a drink while staying at a local hotel. Good value bar meals and a good selection of wines and drink. I had steak and peppercorn sauce, hubby had burger and fries. Tasty food, well cooked and good value for money.

Nice place, bit on the pricey side but it's always a good spot in the summer if you're in the Marina area.

We decided to have food at the Pumphouse for food. We arrived at 11:40 and was advised they wouldn't start cooking until 12, which we thought was poor. The food was ok, but let them self down with the customer service.

Called the Pumphouse to check if dogs allowed ( they are on the wooded floor area) said we would be there in about 15 mins and was advised a table would be reserved for us. Table reserved as promised and a nice bowl of water by the table for our dog. Lovely atmosphere and very nice decor. The ladies loo... More

We had dinner here on a winter Monday. Quiet night. Beers were good. Starter chorizo and chicken skewers were ok. Mains varied- a good bean and Monterey Jack spicy burger, but Oh my Cod!! Under cooked grey thin fish which stretched by belief it was cod at all. Should have complained but wimped out. Finished the meal with Penderyn doubles... More

Went here several times during a holiday. The staff were lovely and very helpful - I have a disability. The Pump House was wheelchair friendly. The food was consistently good. We'll be back next time!

Visited the pump house for a late lunch. Lovely view over looking the marina, and nice decor and atmosphere. Service was really friendly, can't wait to go again.

As a key part of the new marina area of Swansea, and being close by to the SA1 development, we aim to be the ‘community bar’ for everyone in the local area. We are a premium bar with our own style and atmosphere, indulgent premium drinks brands and fantastic food. We also pride ourselves on our range of cask ale, and this combines with our maritime design features to ensure that we keep in touch with our roots. We have a nice upstairs area that can be hired for private use, and our outdoor areas sit right next to the lock gates – a great waterfront location.
