Had an enjoyable dinner at the Black Sheep Brewery Bistro. We started with ribs from the special board, which were a little hard and seemingly overcooked, but very tasty, in a lovely sauce. My wife had the burger, which was excellent, one of the best I've ever eaten, with a great depth of flavour. Triple cooked chips were also excellent.... More

My wife and I booked a table for Friday lunch and we both had a delicious meal. Yes, you are paying restaurant prices but the bistro is that good. Being part of the brewery adds to the charm together with the rustic wooden floors. The staff were excellent too. Definitely worth a visit and try to tie it into a... More

We stopped at Black Sheep based on it's reputation as an outstanding microbrewery. Unfortunately, we missed the brewery tour, but had a wonderful dinner along with a sampling of their beer offerings. Excellent service and meals for our group of 4. Nice ambience. Highly recommended.

We would not have thought of having an evening meal in a brewery brasserie that we believed would only cater well for people going on the brewery tour, how wrong we were we followed a recommendation from a book left in the house we were renting, The food was as good as it could get the chef puts together meals...
