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.

The building in the historic maritime district makes for a delightful setting. We were bumming around the area, needed a lunch break, got lucky here. The menu was jam-packed with pub classics, a range of delicious sharers and starters. I had an 8 oz rump steak, rare, cooked as I requested. Perfect! We sat by a window with nice view... More

Overall we had a good meal consisting of appetizer, main course and dessert. The fajitas were good as well as surf & turf but the hamburger was a little dry but otherwise ok food. The desserts (cheese cake and apple pie) were lovely. Service and ambiance was very nice as well as location down in marina. They have specials every... More

Just had lunch there and, on arrival, was told there was a 20 to 30 minutes waiting time. However, although there were only a handful of people on the ground floor, we waited an hour and when the food arrived there was no apology for the extra delay. In fairness the quality of the food was good but the wait... More

Okish and definitely nothing special which it really could be being based in such an iconic building in the historic maritime quarter. Average food - no waiter service. Pretty forgettable which is a shame based on above comment.

Description
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.
