Why we love it

The Steam Crane Alehouse and Kitchen is named after the Bristol historic Fairbairn Steam Crane, which is the world’s only surviving example. The building has a great history, with illustrious stories of courthouses, hangings and tigers. Now under the wing of Stephen Wallace, the Steam Crane has enjoyed an impressive renovation – of both the space, but also the alcohol lists and the seasonal menus. Be prepared for eye-catching​ interior design, carefully chosen art on the walls and more than a few candles and chandeliers – where steampunk meets faded grandeur.

Tasty food, really great drinks selection, cool interior, ace sunny garden and lush staff...what more could you want?!


Quirky decor, open fire, great food


We had a fantastic Christmas meal at the Steam Crane. The food was superb. I'd thoroughly recommend it.


i would be seriously disappointed if i'd paid full price. rubbish veggie sausages, half a toasted ciabatta that was obviously bought from asda or lidl. tiny portion and just an absolute joke really


It’s a really nice pub, beer patio/ Garden out the back. The breakfast was terrible, under cooked bland sausage, undercooked low quality bacon, mushrooms swimming in oil, it was meant to be £9 without the wriggle discount, incredible, never again sadly


Despite earlier experience in the venue, we had terrible, unprofessional service yesterday. A bloody breakfast took more than 2 hours to arrive while people arriving after us had already finished their meal. No effort to fix it, disgraceful.
