Good food at fair prices. It is a pity about the bar staff who are really rude. It seems anyone they don't know, or is over 30 gets totally ignored.

Large portions & good food at very reasonable prices the 2 for £9.99 is excellent value. Drinks are also reasonably priced. Would recommend if looking for a bar supper type meal

Lovely homely pub grub in the historic and unique old brewery. Service is warm and friendly and staff are attentive. Decor and atmosphere is unique and exciting. A perfect fusion of history and modernity.

Would highly recommend almost everything on the menu. Great, fast, friendly service and fantastic value for money. The two main meals for £9.99 is brilliant. Could hardly make it in the house for that price!

Just back from a Birthday lunch at this establishment and first time here and may not be the last but changes have to be made to ensure "Better Customer Experience".

We try to provide a quality product with excellent customer service and I am sorry that we fell short on this occasion. I understand that the delay with your food was the result of a few large parties ordering at the same time as yourselves,... More
