Clifton pub Steam taking outdoor bookings ahead of April reopening

Posted on: 25 Mar 2021

Enjoy that long-awaited comeback pint at one of Bristol's largest covered outdoor spaces.


Steam have officially relaunched their online booking service ahead of next month, with pub gardens and outdoor spaces permitted to open across the UK from Monday 12 April.


Having been forced to remain closed for months under successive lockdowns and Tier 3 coronavirus restrictions, the pub team are eager to welcome locals back to their cosy sheltered area off Whiteladies Road.


Bookings can be made in groups of between four and six people, available in two-hour slots. Find out more and book your spot here.



Having spent much of the last 12 months closed, Steam's partial reopening in April will hopefully be the beginning of an eagerly-anticipated recovery period.


Their outdoor area, located alongside Clifton Down Train Station, is a beloved spot for both Clifton locals and Bristolians based further afield, renowned for its cosy setup and relaxed atmosphere.


Operating under a reduced capacity in line with government guidelines, the team have set up a brand-new booking system ahead of reopening, with a small number of tables to be kept free for walk-ins.


To secure your booking, you'll need to pre-authorise your credit or debit card. In the event that you do not turn up or if you cancel within 24 hours of your booking, your card will be charged £30.


Tables will be held for a maximum of 15 minutes after your allotted time, after which your booking may be given away. Tables can be booked daily in the following time slots: 12:00-14:30, 14:45-17:15, 17:30-20:00 and 20:15-22.45.


For more information, to book your table or to find out how to get in touch with the team, head to their Steam website.
