Nice atmosphere, good pub food and good price and quick service

We were a party of 16 who were recommended to the Old Brewery for a late lunchtime snack on Friday 27th March. The space was light, airy and pleasant, and our food order was prepared and served with minimal waiting time (although it has to be said the pub was not busy at that time of day). Lovely... read more

My daughters took me to the Old Brewery with a friend visiting from abroad and although the food was good and well and promptly served, I found the noise intolerable, especially as we wanted to 'catch up' with my friend but had to shout over the music and chatter from other diners. I think it was just the wrong venue... More

Don't expect anything other than the usual Pub Grub Menu but also don't expect the usual pub service and quality. The food was very good and the service was attentive and polite without being intrusive, i took my Wife and Daughter here for a "bite to eat" and we all commented on the service and food. Yes it is Pub... More

Hadn't been in the old brewery for a while so thought we would go in today. If you've not been before,it's a case of have a look at the menu and order your food at the bar. The menu has plenty to chose from,something to suit everyone I would think. The portion sizes are generous and I have to say,the... More

From the moment a customer walks into The Old Brewery they can't help but feel the warm atmosphere from the décor to the welcome as well as the food. The Ole Brewery is good food at a reasonable price as well as the drinks. My partner and I often go there for our meal and have never been disappointed! Some... More
