The Brewery offers a great variety of beers - and food to go with it. I tried the IPA but was not happy with it. Maybe I'm spoilt with the American brewed IPA. The Frankfurter accompanied the IPA quite well.

Great place to spend an afternoon after a few hours in the saddle. I enjoyed the Clarens Red and the cherry cider was also good.

Offer nice sample tasters of their brews, pity they sometimes don't have some choices when you order. Very cool industrial chic interior all shining copper, and chrome taps and wood tables. Waiters are a bit slack, a bit over familiar and have 'attitude' which detracts from the overall experience. Maybe they were dipping into the brew in the kitchen? Otherwise... More

Great Pub serving hand crafted beers and cider with good atmosphere and a fantastic selection of various beers. Serve "snack" type food which was also good. Service was great and Waiter knew all his beers on offer.

We've been here once before and the second visit was not mind blowing. Great ambiance! The beers are not exceptional but a different experience, so worth while. The service most definitely was not speedy and we had a bad waiter - excuses came too easy - after waiting for more than an hour for a platter of bread, cheese and... More
