What you'd expect!

A group of us ate here on a Monday evening while staying around the corner. Like all Brewer's Fayres, the food was good value for money, without being outstanding. Service was quick and friendly. The bar staff were great and we all left full of food and happy.

We eat here all the time and mostly it is really good. As with everything there are odd times when things are not perfect. It's just small things, like, on one occasion they served some chips which were not the usual type. They were smaller and therefore some were more crispy than we liked. Sometimes we get meat which is... More

The restaurant itself serves pretty much what you would expect from a cheap restaurant chain like Brewers Fare. Go there expecting really good food and you will be disappointed. Go there with realistic expectations and you will come away happy. We go here about twice a month when we can't be bothered to cook dinner and we want something quick.... More

We were six people for dinner and we all ordered different meals and shared our food. All the meals were surprisingly good, tasty and well cooked. The service was very prompt and the waitress checked we were ok and brought us extra plates and sauces and jugs of water.

It was rather like going into School Dinners, children screaming and running around. Ushered around by the waitress. Meals when they did arrive just dumped on the table. The food was warm and edible. I would suggest not siting people in the conservatory where the families are it acts like an echo chamber.
