“Don't bother - stay away”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2011

Unfortunately the 2 beers we tried from the Tanglehead brewery were really disappointing. Both contained off flavours and were not indicative of the style of beers they purported to be. The IPA was neither hoppy or bitter but instead sickly sweet with distinct diacetyl flavours whilst the Pils tasted nutty and smelt sour. The IPA was so bad that we couldn't drink it (I am sure it had some form of infection). The staff were not helpful and the atmosphere was really lacking.
Overall I was really disappointed as had read other favourably reviews on the beers. It does however appear as though the venue has new owners since this time.

“Basic food and beer”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2011

The beer is out the back if the sleazy white star pub so was not what we were expecting there are no tastings just over priced beer with no taste. Our lunch took nearly an hour to come out and my fish was oily and full of bones. The front bar was dirty and loud. Would not go there again.
