Lovely trendy pub/ restaurant which serves great honest food and the portions are good. Friendly staff with a clean fresh eating area. You won't be disappointed on your night out here.

We have been regulars for meals which are normally very good but recently the food has taken a down turn. My lasagne was stodgy and my wife's hunters chicken was dry.

Have been in for a light meal on a few occasions and always found food quality and value better than its rivals in town, went in recently with a group of 10 for an evening meal and again food and service were excellent. Staff always pleasant and surroundings nice. Preferred when it had some sofa's for relaxing with a drink... More

I have been three times now and this is my first review. I found all my meals mash to be very like Smash. Disappointed! Starter was cool and cold in middle. They need to try harder. Will try again in a few months to see if there's any change

When a member of staff asks if your meal is ok and you reply it was disgusting as your food is untouched ! "No doubt " is the last response you expect from a member of staff who then proceeds to walk away from your table without further explanation ,from a progressive company looking for feedback Belhaven needs to take...

I've been here for meals with family and also nights out with friends. The service here is great and all of the staff are very friendly. In my opinion the food here is quite good quality and very reasonable prices, i would definitely recommend people to go here for meals with family or friends.

Haven't been to the Brewery in ages! Friendly staff, delicious food. Tables cleared efficiently, staff checked in with us to see if everything was ok. Definitely sticking with the Brewey rather than its cheaper rival round the corner!
