West brewery was amazing. The tour was fun and educational, the staff was so nice, and the beer was phenomenal! Make reservations if you want to eat as it was packed! We met a lot of nice people on the tour and we all hung out afterwards enjoying our samples of beer. If you like German style beers then you... More

What an amazing set up, lovely ambience, decor and the staff were friendly, attentive and on the ball. A great selection of on site craft beers. The men had tastings and the branding was evident on a selection of funky glass options. The food was amazing (pork & chorizo balls in tomatoe with salad, pulled pork sandwich, gourmet burger and...

For an informal, lively but very pleasant dining experience, it's difficult to fault. Many of the dishes are of German origin, decent value and very efficient and friendly service.

If you come here its for the beer and not the food, why else would you come to a brewery . The food is fine, substantial portions, well cooked and served by very pleasant staff. The brewery is really nice, very clean and pleasant to sit in, I would recommend it for a refreshing lunch break. You must try St... More

We had really amazing food, starters were all good.The main course was quite big so it is better to check the size of what you would like to have (just in case you want some delicious desert too :) All our friends tried all different types of beer and everyone seemed pleased. Great atmosphere and very kind and prompt staff.
