About Us

Who We Are

Our pub is named after the historic Bristol landmark, the Fairbairn Steam Crane, which is the world’s only surviving example.

Like the real Steam Crane, our building has great history, with stories of courthouses, a hanging, and a lion.

We like to think we're cool but not cocky, creative but not completely off-the-wall, and hard-working but not worked into the ground.

We enjoy making you feel at home in our venue, whether you have walked in, booked a table or we are hosting your special event in our main bar or upstairs function space.

Our Values

Like all pubs, we have to be concerned with profits and finances. In this we have no choice. But we do have a choice about how we achieve this and what we focus on, and that is important for us as a responsible local community business.

“We will endeavour to conduct our business in a way that benefits our local community, guests, suppliers and employees.”
