Thought we would try this traditional looking pub for a meal despite visiting a great place the night before. Big mistake. Quite busy with what looked like locals having a drink. Nobody eating though.Good selection of beers. Ordered 1 starter and 2 mains. Despite few diners no starter after nearly 30 minutes.Food then turned up just before I went looking.Altogether!... More

Busy but friendly location serving no nonsense food, good beers and organised hospitality. A good meeting pace and place to do business over a meal

Visit Liverpool quite a lot and always have a drink in the pump house. Great location great selection of beers and good pub food. Service is always good and efficient even at busy times - and it can get very busy. Friendly bar staff who are always willing to advise on the beers. Would recommend the pump house to anyone...

During our recent work-related travel to Liverpool, the Pump House provide for a relaxing and fine evening of great beer choices and excellent fish and chips. Highly recommended!

Ordered drinks, very standoffish behaviour from behind the bar. 40 mins wait for food. When it came the chips were dry. o offer of condiments.. again... More

Waited nearly an hour for cold and cremated food - service of waitress was also unprofessional and unfriendly. Offered full refund on meal but only half returned - walked out vowing never to return. Terrible

The Pumphouse always has a good selection of up to 10 real ales on tap, plus wine and coffees etc served from the bar. The food is average standard pub food, but the service is good and quick. A great place to socialise with friends; we stayed for about 3 hours.

Super place to eat on the dockside. Friendly staff and very large range of real ales ...... and you can sip a taste to try before you buy. The food is good value and tasty and the lunch deal at £6.99 for a deli deal + side dish and a pint or other drink is a super fab deal. One... More
