The Pump House (grid reference ST571723) is a historic public house situated in Hotwells on Bristol Harbour, Bristol, England.

It was built around 1870 by Thomas Howard as a Hydraulic Pumping House to provide power to the bridges and machines of Bristol Harbour. It was replaced by the current Hydraulic engine house in the 1880s and is now a public house and restaurant.[1] The chef, Toby Gritten, won the Best Chef award at the Bristol Good Food Awards in 2013.[2]

It is a grade II listed building.[3]
