Good pub food

The only problem is that the food menu has changed so much over the years that it has never been consistent. Consistency is good and important - you can say the same about adapting to changes, be it with food or management - but I've always felt that there is something new and I can't just have one... read more

Too noisy for decent conversation, but food was worth the visit. Lots of tv' s to watch the game and the announcer was on too.

Don't have much positive to say about this place. Pay parking, hostess with bad attitude, tv's so loud that you can't talk to the person right beside you, when did nachos get served with pork n beans. Pricey and food is ok at best. Not a fan and will never be back.

Have been here a couple times with friends to grab a bite and some beer. They have live music on some nights and have daily specials. Tried their dry ribs, so delicious! Recommend for a night out since it is so close to the Surrey Central Skytrain Station. They also are good for accommodating larger groups.

I've loved Central City's Red Racer IPA for a long time. The brewpub is a nice large space well located in the big mall near Sky Train and SFU. The food is good, kind of upscale pub fare, and the beers are, well, Central City. My impression is the service could be a bit tighter, especially seating people more promptly... More

Firstly, if you happen to be shopping I guess this spot would be fine, but otherwise it is a real hassle to get into parking wise etc. Which is probably why the Mayor of Surrey decided to move city hall in this area. No one will go there. I was there for a business lunch. The staff are very friendly.... More

Ate half my tasty burger then noticed the pink... waitress promptly took it back and I got a whole new meal! Able to eat half, took the rest home for snack tomorrow. Service was great despite being so busy. Everyone... More

We came in on Dec. 2nd for lunch. We had a sleeve of their excellent Pilsner, it was terrific, and very morish. Wish this place was closer to our home in Richmond. We also had their Ham and Pineapple thin cruse Pizza, which was delicious. Would defiantly come again and we are planning to get here on transit for another... More

Four of us went for a simple birthday lunch. Food was good, prices were reasonable and the service was excellent. We covered a wide spectrum of dishes. I had a baby back rib beef dip with Caesar salad(good), someone had a breakfast skillet(good), another had an Asian noodle stir fry(more vegetables needed) and the last had a large bacon/cheese burger(good)....

We searched pubs near us and came up with Central City Brewing Co. This is not what I think of as a pub. It is a nice sit-down restaurant that specializes in a variety of beers, and there are some TVs showing a sports channel. Amidst nice booths and tables, Is a bar. If you are looking for a pub...
