Large pub rebuilt from the original station buildings, clearly aiming at the student market, with a dark, slightly gothic sort of interior. Outside there is a vast canopy covering assorted lounge furniture, which is an extremely pleasant place to sit on a sunny afternoon. A good range of beers included some local brews as well as various craft offerings. Very nice at quiet times, but probably best avoided on busy evenings unless you are a student.

Steam Bristol is situated next to Clifton Down train station.
Once inside the bar faces in a long oblong shaped room which runs the width of the pub,the room is bare boarded and the seating was uncomfy benches and large tables.
There were four real ales on the bar,i had a drink of Brains Reverend James,which was a decent enough drink,the other real ales were Brains Original,Dawkins Funseeker and Dawkins Mosic.
The pub was too cold on a cold early February Saturday.
There were quite background music playing.
I was not that fussed with this pub.

Refurbished and renamed since my previous review, the basic layout is unchanged but it’s had something of a spruce-up and has fortunately lost it’s sports bar persona. Although there were still a few students present, they were mostly confined to the outside area with the inside being surprisingly relaxed with a mixed age clientele. A few blue tiles have been added next to the bar as well as blue paintwork on some of the walls. Elsewhere the false floor above remains, but with the lack of a ceiling (just the joists and floor boards) with copious quantities of exposed filament light bulbs dangling around, it seemed quite atmospheric, almost reminiscent of an alpine ski lodge. A large oven was next to the bar counter, and I understand that rotisserie is something of a theme here, although we did not inspect the menu. Stone fire-places were at either end and there was some industrial looking pipe work around, presumably designed to be in reference to the pub’s name. The outside area too has had a bit of renovation and consists of a good sized covered area with astro-turf, heaters, picnic benches and sofas.

Beers on tap were Rev James Original and Gold, Bier Bitte and Prescott Hill Climb, whilst another pump appeared to have run out. A “coming soon” board behind the bar listed a few further options, including some rather more local ones from Cheddar Ales and GWB. Ciders meanwhile were Explorer and Reveller from Orchard Pig. All in all I was quite pleasantly surprised by this, and it’s certainly much better than my previous visit.
